Chinese Sea Spirit

Two-faced Dragon Lord in charge of the Western Ocean

One of the LONG-WANG Dragon Kings, he’s in charge of the Western Sea. He got short-changed there as there isn’t one. Only a large lake known as The Green Sea.

When the newly be-weaponed MONKEY threatened to cause trouble in the Underwater Palace, AO-JUN had a bright idea. He smiled sweetly, gave him a little present and then complained furiously to the JADE-EMPEROR behind his back. Heavenly retribution was swift.
