LI-SI
Also known as LI-SZU

Hateful book-burning Chinese demon

Not a God. A demon. He's the Qin Dynasty official responsible for burning untold numbers of priceless ancient books.

He did this in a bid to destroy DAOist and Confucian ideas which clashed with his own rather nasty brand of Legalist domination.

Chinese culture has mourned the loss of this precious literature ever since. Worst still, LI-SI was possibly re-incarnated as Chairman MAO-ZEDONG, who went on an even worse rampage during the Cultural Revolution. May their souls rot.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Li-si graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Li-si movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Li-si statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Li-si. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
