TAI-YI

Chinese Sky God

Also known as DI-YI

The supreme Sky God of ancient China

His name means "Big One" or, to put it more poetically, "The Great Unity", and he ruled over all for a very long time until the JADE-EMPEROR came on the scene. He may even have changed his name to YUAN-SHI-TIAN-ZONG.

Among his attendants and messengers are GOU-MANG, RU-SHOU and TAI-SUIXING.
