He’s a vaguely dragon-like figure who controls the world’s rain. At least in China he does.
At a whim Yu Shi can send a light refreshing shower or dispatch a dreadful deluge. He carries a magic container of water which he gently tips in the required direction. Just a single drop is enough to cause a torrential downpour.
We are not sure what kind of container Yu Shi carries his water around in. Some sources mention a bowl or a cup, which doesn’t seem very practical to us. Surely a jug or bottle would make more sense. Possibly some form of Tupperware container?
Yu Shi is sometimes identified with another rain deity called Chisongzi. He’s also been known to join forces with the Wind God Feng Bo when a double helping of diabolical weather is required — particular when his boss, the War God Chiyou, needs a little job done. You don’t want to mess with a guy who carries a rainstorm in his Tupperware
