FAN-KUI

Chinese Butchery God

Also known as FAN-GUEI, FAN-K'UIE

A meaty deity for hungry carnivores

He is really butch. Actually, he started out as a mortal dog skinner before being promoted to God of Butchers. Not the most promising of backgrounds. Are the Celestial Gastronomy Selection Committee barking mad?

We just hope FAN-KUI is managing to keep all that juicy meat fresh — the last thing you want is some bacteria demon infesting your beef chow mein.
