The birth of male children was traditionally of prime importance to Chinese families. Boys grew up to become men. Girls were just girls — nice to have around, so long as there were plenty of boys to make the money and work the farms.

Known as the Archer, ZHANG-XIAN is usually depicted firing an arrow in the direction of TIAN-GU, the Celestial God. We understand he is also the mortal enemy of ER-LANG, the heroic nephew of the JADE-EMPEROR. These facts require further investigation.
