One of Wen Chang’s servants, Kui Xing was once a mortal in the academic world — a highly-talented student but also extremely ugly. In fact he was a typical nerd. But after having fallen off a cliff, he was rescued from certain death by a dragon and given the job of Literary Affairs Minister.
Now he stands next to Wen Chang in the night sky, and oversees official paperwork, publications and Post-It notes. No memo is small enough to escape his scrutiny. We presume by now he is also the God of Fax Machines and Email.
Kui Xing is often depicted standing on the head of a turtle waving a Chinese brush in the air. Never having received a communication from Heaven, we are at a loss to comment further.
