Lugbara mythology

The Lugbara[?] live in Zaire and Uganda.

Adroa[?] appeared in both good and evil aspects; he was the creator god and appeared on Earth as a human who was near death. He was depicted as a very tall and white man with only one half of a body, missing one eye, one leg, etc. His children were called the Adroanzi[?].

The Adroanzi were nature gods of specific rivers, trees and other sacred wild areas. At night, they followed people and protected them from animals and bandits as long as they did not look over their shoulder to ensure that a Adroanzi was following; if the person did so, the Adroanzi promptly killed him or her.
