YUAN-SHI-TIAN-ZONGAlso known as YU-QING, YUAN-SHIH-T'IEN-TSUN, TIAN-BAO-JUN
Creator of the Universe and member of the [SAN-QING] trinity of supreme [DAO]ist Gods.
His distinguished career has gone largely unnoticed in the Western World where titles such as 'The Celestial Venerable Of the Primordial Beginning' are beyond the comprehension of those who have suffered a comprehensive education.
Legend tells that he existed before everything, having formed himself from pure QI energy. Then he created Heaven and Earth and ruled over all — at least for a while.
At some point his reluctance to be scrutable led him to take on an apprentice so he could retire to perfect contemplation. So the young JADE-EMPEROR learned the trade of Universal Mastery and became ruler of everything, while YUAN-SHI-TIAN-ZONG relocated to the Pure Jade Heaven for a million billion trillion years of navel-gazing.
We understand he is still available for consultations and soul-saving, but only in an emergency.
