One of the EIGHT-IMMORTALS, he is the Zero-Gravity God. HAN-XIANGZI was a highly-educated philosopher in the company of LU-DONGBIN. One day he fell out of a peach tree. What was he doing up a peach tree? If he was testing gravity, it didn’t work. He fell upwards — in contravention of Gravitational Law, Section C, Paragraph 12.
As luck would have it, the peach tree just happened to be sacred. Was it the blessed Peach Tree of Immortality, which bears fruit once every 3,000 years? If so, he was a very naughty boy for climbing it.
Grabbing at a sacred branch bestowed immediate immortality. And also equipped his flute with the power of immortality-bestwoing music. Now he hangs around with the other EIGHT-IMMORTALS, playing his flute and making the most profound observations. He is also the patron of the middle classes.
