LI JING

Chinese Hero God

Also known as LI-CHING

Gatekeeper of Heaven

An Immortal of the Han Dynasty.

His wife gave birth to tricky young god Nezha, which caused much confusion at the time. But after some unruly episodes between father and son, Li Jing and Nezha fought demons together in many mighty battles.

For his habit of killing nasties by throwing pagodas at them, Li Jing became known as the Heavenly Pagoda-Carrying King, and was eventually rewarded with a place in Heaven by the Jade Emperor.
