A Chinese Mermaid like creature with the upper-half of a woman and lower-half of a serpent. She is married to and entwined with Fu-His an emperor of the sea. She is the embodiment of order and creativity and established marriage. She created humans who then rebelled and tore down the pillars from the sky. Nu Kwa then restored them by using toes of a cosmic tortoise as markers and melted turquoise for the pillars. After a great flood she restored the earth from ashes of burnt reeds.
