Nephew of the JADE-EMPEROR, he specializes in outwitting demons and evil spirits. With seventy-two separate disguises in his dressing room, they seldom spot him coming.
ER-LANG was called in by Heaven to subdue the troublesome MONKEY, which he attempted to do with great confidence. But pride comes before a fall and he failed most miserably, not realizing that the Monkey King was just as adept at the seventy-two transformations and had a much bigger stick.
ER-LANG is also a mortal enemy of ZHANG-XIAN. We don’t know why, but we aim to find out. There are giveaway hints however. He has a third eye in the middle of his forehead on which an eyepatch would be out of place, and he favors a three-bladed spear and rather swirly clothes. Also his black hound will never be far away.
