God of Wealth and Status

One of the Sanxing, he’s the Star of Honor, offering unlimited employment and promotion prospects.

But first you must prove yourself worthy and industrious. The Gods help those who help themselves, you know. Luxing was reputed to be a high-ranking government official before being promoted to deitydom. Apply yourself to hard work with dedication, and this deity will smile upon you.

Luxing wears the mandarin robes of a government minister. His special symbol is the stag; not very industrious but a runaway success when it comes to leaping up the mountain of life.
