The Gods and Spirits of the Middle Kingdom...

FEI-LIAN

Chinese Wind God

Also known as FEI-LIEN, FENG-BO, FENG-PO

God of the Wind

He is a rather windy Chinese God, so we will breeze through his most notable features: bull’s horns, sparrow’s head, stag’s body and snake’s tail. He also appears in human form and may have been that blustering gentleman you bumped into in the street last week.

Something of a trouble-maker, at some stage his arch-enemy YI shot a hole in his windbag and now he has almost run out of puff.
