Akunda, the thunder lizard, is the loa of storms and new beginnings. He believes that the storm has the power to wash away regret and sorrow. Through a sacred ritual, Akunda enters the minds of those who come to his temple in Vol'dun seeking refuge and removes the memories that cause them pain. His followers do good works to show the loa they are worthy of his blessing.
Akunda was poisoned by his follower Akunda the Exalted, who took the loa's own memories from him. Using Akunda's power, Akunda the Exalted wiped the trolls at the temple of not only their painful memories but all of their memories. After Meijani and an adventurer from the Horde discovered this, they used Akunda's powers of the storm to slay Akunda the Exalted. With Akunda the Exalted defeated, Akunda restored the memories of his followers. Afterward, Akunda offers his gift to the adventurer, allowing them to call upon the Boon of Akunda whenever they commune at an Altar of Akunda.
During Akunda the Exalted's schemes, the followers of Akunda renamed themselves after the loa. After Akunda the Exalted was slain, all of the loa's followers began to use their own, prior names again.

Tales of the Loa
Akunda brings de lightning,
Akunda brings de thunder.
De faithless be afraid,
De brave be full of wonder.
Akunda brings de wind,
Akunda brings de rain.
Ya memories come flooding up,
His will can ease ya pain.
One day he hits with all de force,
De next day he be kind.
Much like Akunda's touch,
Dere be great power in his mind.
When ya courage goes astray,
When doubt be in ya heart.
Think of calm before de storm,
And Akunda do his part.
