FEI LIAN

Chinese Wind God

Also known as Fei Lien, Xie Feng, Feilian

The Dragon of the Wind

He is a rather windy Chinese Serpent, so we will breeze through his most notable features: bull’s horns, sparrow’s head, stag’s body and snake’s tail. He also appears in humanoid form under the name Feng Bo.

Something of a trouble-maker, at some stage his arch-enemy Yi shot a hole in his windbag. Now he has almost run out of puff.
