HE-XIANGUAlso known as HÉ QIÓNG, HE XIAN-GU, HE HSIEN-KU, HO HSIEN-KU
Immortal Goddess of Ladies, Virgins and Housewives
She mixed the powder into a cordial and presto! Heshee Peachee, the flavor that stays with you forever. "Darlings, you simply must try some!"
HE-XIANGU found after a sip or two that she could fly over mountains. At first she used this talent to fill her larder with new and exotic fruits from places far away. But it wasn't long before she spotted other immortals on her travels and threw her lot in with them.
With her emblem the self-raising lotus flower, she is the patron deity of virgins and unmarried ladies. She is also a celebrity chef and Goddess of Housekeeping. Which is all the more remarkable because after a slap-up lunch with LU-DONGBIN she never felt the need to eat again.
