Zé Pelintra is a spiritual being in Brazilian syncretic religions, such as Umbanda and Catimbó.
He is widely reputed, especially among Umbanda followers, as the patron spirit of the barrooms, gambling dens, and gutters (while not aligned with “evil” entities, however). Zé Pilintra’s spirit is famed by its extreme bohemianism and wild partying persona, being a kind of trickster spirit.
The entity is summoned when his followers need help on domestic, business, or financial affairs and is generally regarded as enforcer of charity and is considered to be the protector of the poor.
