Chinese Protection God

General Ha has deadly breath

A protective Door God, he generally hangs about with his partner in defense Hengjiang. Like his colleague, he has a very special secret weapon.

Popularly known as General Ha, his particular talent is for breathing out poison gas. With a mighty cry of Ha! he can release a blast of deadly halitosis which could stun an ox at fifty paces.

He is sometimes called upon to protect Buddha using his defensive superpowers. But most of the time he hangs around with his buddy General Heng as one of the Heng Ha Er Jiang protective collective.
