In the early 1600s Chamba Ibo escaped the depression of Mississippi and went to Louisiana. He joined Marie RaVal as a student to learn her ways of Louisiana style Voodoo and fell in love with her. He became the first Voodoo Doctor under her guidance. They married in Roshton Mississippi, a small town that was located near the Louisiana border, in 1625.
It is believed that Chamba and Marie never conceived a child. Legend has it that because of this Marie became very depressed and was not able to work which resulted in Chamba picking up as many odd jobs as he could.
Wanting to find a way to make his wife happy, Chamba performed an emotional rites ritual. The ritual was done incorrectly and caused him to become filled with greed for power. Little did he know that a portal was beginning to open inside of himself to Pandora, a dimension for the condemned. The more greed for power he obtained the bigger the portal became which would make him ill.
When Marie found out what Chamba had done she changed his name to Papa NaRue, meaning the powerful evil, and banished him from her presence. With tears from a broken heart she created a necklace known as the Marie RaVal necklace to track him at all times and keep him away from her.
Over time the portal opened up fully and Papa NaRue vanished to Pandora. While there he noticed creatures battling each other and a rock with a strange deck of tarot cards on top. He quickly became ruler, defeating any creature that stood in his path. He noticed that when creatures escaped Pandora, three tarot cards would leave the deck and attach themselves to the creature. He witnessed the cards giving the creature special abilities and power but at the same time making it a slave to the cards. He devised a plan to take the tarot cards’ power and return to Earth without becoming a slave to the deck. He figured that with the right ritual and himself being sacrificed he would be able to leave Pandora and take the power of the cards with him. He eventually put his plan into action and was able to escape Pandora without sacrificing himself. Once he arrived back on Earth a member of the Arch Knights of Salem defeated him putting him back in Pandora.
Angered by this Papa NaRue performed the same ritual again and waited. He was killed by a new comer called SaDue. With his plan fully set into motion he awaits for the time of his rebirth on Earth. The day of reckoning will come when he will be reborn, feeding off of the living as well as the dead.
Book of Narue
The Book of NaRue was created by Papa NaRue as a storage medium for his spells. Legend has it that the book’s original cover was created from the skin of New Orleans Louisiana’s first witch coven as a peace offering to Papa NaRue’s tribe. Over time the coven learned that the peace offering was a trick and that they had become his slaves. To break the bond and restore order, the coven created an enchanted alligator skin cover in which they binded to the book. This allowed the bond to be broken. Angered by this, Papa NaRue killed the witches and trapped their souls within the book.
When Papa NaRue became trapped in Pandora, a dimension that he created due to his greed for power, the book stayed behind on earth. It fell into different witch coven possessions who tried their best to free the original coven that they believed was trapped within the pages.
