CHINESE MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of the Middle Kingdom...

QI-YU

Chinese Rain God

Also known as CHI-YU

Warlike God of Rain

He’s half-bull, half-giant and half of his head is iron.

Although defeated in his own Heavenly combats against the JADE-EMPEROR, he now invents weapons for humans. So if something goes off half-cocked you know who to blame.

Conflicting reports also claim he is related to Herb God SHEN-NONG. Perhaps someone’s been taking too many herbs.
