The DAOist God of Books and Writing. But only in Chinese.
He started out as Zhang Ya Zi, a Zhou Dynasty sage who could predict the future and perform great transformations. With his superior knowledge of The Way (DAO), he was elevated to Heaven and now sits enthroned in the Big Dipper (Plough).
WEN-CHANG is also a God of Education and Learning, helping students and blessing schools. It’s easy to get on his good side: all you need to do is love books.
His attendants KUI-XING and ZHU-YI stand beside him in the Heavenly hot seat. One is deaf and the other is mute, so try and get a direct line.
