Given to the voodoo doctor by his "friends on the other side", the talisman is used to shapeshift its user via the blood of the person the user wishes to morph into. When the talisman loses the blood or is removed from its user, the user will revert back into his or her true form. For Facilier's plot to steal the La Bouff family fortune, Lawrence wore the talisman to disguise himself as Prince Naveen in order to marry Charlotte La Bouff. However, once this is discovered by the real Naveen and his friend Ray the firefly, the duo are able to steal the talisman and hand it over to Tiana. Once in Tiana's possessions, the talisman is destroyed (much to Facilier's horror), thus saving Charlotte's fortune and New Orleans. Being the most vital part of Facilier's plot, the talisman's destruction also resulted in the witch doctor's death.
- Ray referred to the talisman as a "voodoo hayacall". A "hayacall" is merely Cajun slang term used for objects for which the name is unknown.
