Azeban also known as Azban, Asban and Azaban, is a spirit god known to native American Abenaki and Penobscot people, who inhabited (and still do) the north eastern parts of America and Canada.

Azeban appears as a raccoon who plays low level tricks on people, other animals and beings. These are mostly harmless mischievous acts, which come off as comedic at times and the aim is to steal food or gain attention.

The legends of this spirit have mostly been told as children stories in these native tribes. Azeban does not cause any serious harm or trouble as he is not considered to be evil at heart.

The powers of Azeban are in part a reflection of real raccoons that is speed, stealth, powerful claws and climbing abilities. On-top of that it is able to use some magical abilities like disappearance and ultra fast speed.

Surprisingly we have a modern day version of Azeban in the form of the famous Marvel comics and Guardians of the Galaxy character of ‘Rocket Raccoon’. There are many similarities between this character and the spirit of Azeban. Including the compulsion to steal things Rocket Raccoon is fast and slick in it’s abilities, he also likes to play alot of tricks and pranks, however is good at heart.

WingedWizard.com is a journey to discover magic. In our modern times, we have forgotten and continue to move farther away from ancient wisdom, traditions and spirituality. At WingedWizard.com we (means you too) try to pay attention in order to make a little more sense of the lesser understood components of our reality. We try to re-kindle our spiritual relationships and move closer to ancient wisdoms. We document this in the most accurate way possible as best as we understand it, however, we do not claim to know or understand everything about these phenomena. We welcome you on this journey with us.
