FENG BO

Chinese Wind God

Also known as Feng Po

Starry-eyed God of Space Wind

He is an old man with a long white beard, a yellow cloak and a brightly colored hat. Like so many wind deities, he carries a big sack full of blustery air which he releases into the atmosphere.

Feng Bo lives in the constellation of Sagittarius where he looks after the solar breezes. When the moon passes too close to his star, he gets a little flustered and allows a little too much wind to escape from his sack.

Forecast: strong irritable winds from above.

It’s claimed that Feng Bo works for the rather disreputable Chiyou. He has been known to hang out with fellow weather deity Yu Shi. He is also rumored to appear in the form of a dragon named Fei Lian.
