The Choga is a Fae Toad.
The sweat of the Choga is a powerful psychedelic drug. Those who lick the sweat from his body get high. If a drink is spiked with his sweat it alters the behavior and mood of those who consume it — they become infused with friendliness and warm-up to each other.
When Choga refers to himself it is always in the third person.
"You think Mama Choga wanted you to leave the lily pad to become a sweat peddler?" – Bo to Choga
The Colorado River toad, also known as the Sonoran Desert toad, is a psychoactive toad found in northern Mexico and the southwestern United States. Its skin and venom contain 5-MeO-DMT and bufotenin. The toad's primary defense system are glands that produce a poison that may be potent enough to kill a grown dog. These parotoid glands also produce the 5-MeO-DMT and bufotenin for which the toad is known; both of these chemicals belong to the family of hallucinogenic tryptamines. These substances, present in the skin and venom of the toad, produce psychoactive effects when smoked. It lives in both desert and semiarid areas throughout its range. It is semiaquatic and is often found in streams, near springs, in canals and drainage ditches, and under water troughs. It often makes its home in rodent burrows and is nocturnal. There are laws in several states that makes it illegal to possess the toad's venom.
