For CDC #530: Papa Kongo was born to parents from different African tribes. Both his parents were minor practitioners of dark magic and they decided to sacrifice their 10 year old child to Voudon dark gods to gain more power. As they argued and fought over who was to receive the more power they slew each other and the child was given all the dark power instead. He spent years receiving instruction from Voudon evil spirits on black magic. He now acts as a representative for them on Earth. He used his powers to take over a portion of the Kongo calling himself Papa Kongo and instituting a cult of personality in his Kingdom using his dark magic to keep control.
