In Haiti, we see a doctor's arrival greeted by gunmen who mean to abduct him. That crime is thwarted by the return to the island of Brother Voodoo, also known as Jericho Drumm.
We see in flashback the origin of our hero, how his brother Daniel, the Houngan of Haiti, the voodoo priest of good magic, was cursed by Damballah, a rival priest of black magic, and lay dying. Jericho, an American physician, visited him on his deathbed, but could do nothing to prevent his brother's death. Jericho travels to the jungles to see Daniel's mentor, Papa Jambo, who trains him and ultimately bonds Daniel's spirit to Jericho's, creating Brother Voodoo.
