Sobo is a Lwa of strength. Sobo is a very powerful Lwa and well known for his bravery as a warrior. Sobo is said to have healing power and is often called upon to cure illness of the supernatural origin to his devotees. He is also called upon to help with money and general prosperity matters.

Sobo is a lighthearted Lwa with the attitude of "ask sincerely for what you want, then KNOW it will happen". When he possesses someone, that person must dress up like a general in the army. When he addresses the congregation during a mounting it is like a general addressing his troops. Sobo is considered an important figure in voodoo mythology. He is the symbol of strength, the ideal of voodoo priests who want to be respected figures in their communities. Because of the strength he procures for his followers, Sobo's presence is continually requested to bring security and protection to the congregation. He who is with Sobo is protected against wild spirits. Sobo and Bade are uniquely connected in the Vodou pantheon. Sobo is often referred to as the Lwa of rain, while Bade is the lwa of wind. A better interpretation would be to say that both Sobo and Bade are escorts of Gran Met, for they rule in the sky, where Gran Met is thought to reside.

His colors include white and lemon yellow.  His symbols are lightening and rain.  His offerings include goat meat and mutton.
