Green Dragon Spirit of the East

Gou Mang is a spirit messenger of Heavenly supremo Taiyi.

He also looks after the Eastern corner of the world, and is heavily into Spring and Woodwork. His public relations team reports nothing but customer satisfaction and happiness.

We understand he is the twin of the rather less popular Ju Shou.
