ZHONGLI-QUANAlso known as ZHONG-LI-QUAN, ZHUAN-ZHONGLI, CHUNG-LI-CHUAN, HAN-ZHONGLI
Immortal deity of explosions
One of the EIGHT-IMMORTALS, he invented weapons of mass revelation.Fat, bald and cheery with a long beard, he was fond of dabbling with alchemy, and became a bit of a hermit to pursue the esoteric.
His peaceful dabbling came to an end when one particularly esoteric experiment caused an explosion in his dwelling. The walls shook and a large crack appeared, exposing to view a hidden container. This contained a goodly dosage of the Elixir Of Life.
Whether it was in tablet or liquid form we can't say, but it more than compensated for the damage. Because ZHONGLI-QUAN, who it would seem would try anything once, became an Immortal.
Perhaps because of his explosive capabilities, he is also the God of Military Operations. For some reason, his emblem is a fan made of feathers. Stylish, but not, we feel, entirely relevant.
