The third of the great Dragon Kings in Chinese mythology. The other Dragon Kings are; Ao Shun, Ao Chin and Ao Jun. They rule the sea and the rain and help aid the Chinese during droughts. If no sign of the Dragon Kings had come about, to provoke them villagers would place offerings by the roadside. The Dragon Kings live at the bottom of the ocean in vast crystal palaces that are guarded by crayfish and lobsters and have fish for servants.
