A Dragon from the traditions of China. He was one of the Dragon Kings and the only one which was white. It was born from a young girl of a Chinese family. The story tells of an old man who took shelter from the stormy weather in a house of a warm and kind family. After he left it soon became evident to the family that the daughter in the family was pregnant. The family blamed the stranger and expelled the daughter from the house. Later she gave birth to a creature that resembled a ball of white flesh. She died from the shock of birth. Her mother discovered this creature and threw it in a lake. The creature grew to become a great white Dragon and the tombstone of the young girl became a shrine to Pai Lung.
