She was once a goddess called Ch’ang O who was the wife of Hon I the great archer. Hon I was the guardian of the elixir of immortality that the gods used. Ch’ang O stole this potion and fled to the moon so that no one could find her. However, when she got to the moon she had transformed into a Three-Legged Toad, too hideous to reveal herself. There she gorges on the moon. Sometimes her hunger is so strong that she consumes the whole moon.
