Li No Zha
- East Asian (culture)
- Humanoid (attribute)
- Troublesome (behaviour)
A Giant from Chinese legend who was born from the wife of Ji Ling by the Unicorn of Heaven. At first he was a ball of flesh but soon grew at a rapid rate into a man with an aggressive temper. Li No Zha fought with the gods and the son of the Dragon King. This fighting brought shame to his parents. They reconciled with him but his guilt was so much that Li No Zha committed suicide. However he was immediately reborn as a Giant with eight arms and 3 heads each with 3 eyes. Li Jing was shocked to see this Giant and attacked his own stepson. The gods intervened and made peace between the two. They then appointed Li No Zha as the shield-Bearer to the Jade Emperor Yu Huang.
