ZHU-YI

Chinese Literature God

Also known as CHU-I

God of Passing Marks

One of the attendants of WEN-CHANG, the God of Literature.

Clad in the red robes of Heaven, ZHU-YI is the God of School Tests and Examination Panic. A nod from him can turn crosses into ticks and Fail into Top Marks.

A kindly God who rewards scholastic effort, ZHU-YI comforts and supports students and test candidates who’ve forgotten their calculators, their pens, their crib sheets and their own names.
