The Mama Wata can spit snake venom at a far target. Lita, a mama wata, sold her molted snakeskin and also used it to create products from it.
Ciara mentioned in conversation that she knew a mama wata once, and that they tend to like expensive trinkets.
"Mami" Wata is venerated in West, Central, Southern Africa, and in the African diaspora in some Caribbean islands, and parts of North and South America. Mami Wata spirits are usually female, but are sometimes male. In many parts of West and Central Africa, "Mami Wata" serves as a slang term for a gorgeous woman. Mami Wata is often described as a mermaid-like figure, with a woman's upper body (often nude) and the hindquarters of a fish or serpent. In other tales, Mami Wata is fully human in appearance (though never human). A large snake (symbol of divination and divinity) frequently accompanies her, wrapping itself around her and laying its head between her breasts. Other times, she may try to pass as completely human, wandering busy markets or patronizing bars. She may also manifest in a number of other forms, including as a man.
