Ghede Linto is a loa that performs miracles, although many think he's a small boy because of his politeness. About 5 feet tall, Linto is an old, dark-skinned man with a cane, glasses, and an old-fashioned black hat. He's very well mannered and docile. He loves to teach his worshipers to sing, and enjoys leaving them gifts he makes out of rum, Florida Water, a cigarette and fire. He cuts a piece of thread for each of his servants, or children from his house, and drops the threads in his special mix to produce needles for everyone; other times, gifts like gold rings or gold chains are given. He loves to make knots out of their scarves just to surprise them with gifts. Linto does these miracles to ensure his children they are in good hands. His work is very proficient, direct, and accurate; he can smell trouble six months away and either assists you to prepare for it or teaches you ways to prevent it.
