One of the Eight Immortals. He’s the original black belt at Origami.
This splendid old character did it his way. He simply refused to die. He did drop dead once, but just got up again and carried on as if nothing had happened. That’s the kind of never-say-die spirit we approve of.
Furthermore, he had an amazing magic donkey which could be folded up like a piece of paper when not in use. No parking fines for him.
Zhang Guolao is now revered as the patron of the elderly. If only he would turn his thoughts to paper airplanes, he could revolutionize the aeronautics industry.
