Eshu-Eleggua:
Santeria and the Orisha of the Crossroads

Yoruba theology teaches that there are 401 powers of the right "angels" called orishas whose role is to act as protectors and facilitators of humankind; there are also 201 powers of the left called ajogun "demons" whose role is to present humans with challenges and obstacles. Eshu's place is unique because he is both an orisha and the leader of the ajogun!

Obatala:
Santeria and the White Robed King of the Orisha

Obatala means "King of the White Cloth". This title refers to a particularly soft and beautiful white fabric associated with Yoruba Kings. To call an Orisha the Chief of the White Cloth is to make a symbolic reference to that substance which makes consciousness possible. It is a reference to the fabric that binds the Universe together.
