ZHU-RONGAlso known as CHU-JUNG, CHU-JONG
God of Fire and Heavenly Executioner.His domain is the southern quarter of Heaven, where he rides a tiger and presides over Universal Order.
Legend tells that he was so proud of helping to establish Heaven and Earth that the authority went straight to his head. When GONG-GONG came along boasting of supreme magnificence it was more than his ego could bear.
After much bickering and insult-throwing, the two of them elected to settle their differences in true Godly fashion. They decided to fight it out.
