In 2014, Fidel Castro steps down and the Cuban government collapses. The Mafia takes over Cuba in the chaos. Lady Guadalupe Martinez starts a new revolution with Neo Communist ideals and takes control of Cuba from the Mafia in a surprisingly bloodless revolution.

On October 15th, 2058; Nadja Daviar gives the Caribbean League until December 31, 2060, to decide who the leader houngan is to gain Dunkelzahn's bequest.[3]

In 2060, there is no clear head houngan, but it becomes down to two candidates.

In 2061, arrival of shedim causes "a bit of an uproar" [6]

In 2063, the Draco Foundation declares Justin Rochefort the winner and head houngan. Before he could claim the talons his plane crashes in the CAS. Marcus Cross is appointed as his successor but is later arrested in Houston on charges of necromancy.[3]

In 2064, the Voice of Ogoun splits in two. The original members follow the imprisoned Marcus Cross, while the splinter group called the Voice of Agwe follows Claude-Michael Flaubert.[3]
