Guan Di - The God of War

Guan Di, the Daoist War God was born around 162 CE and was at one point a bean curd seller. Thus he is also the patron of bean curd sellers. He changed his name to Guan and became a famous general during the Three Kingdoms period, being executed by an enemy in 220 CE. His veneration began around the 7th century CE and in 1594 he was canonized by a Ming Dynasty Emperor as the God of War and Protector of China.

It is said he guards China against all external enemies as well as internal rebels and can banish demons. Guan Di is also thought to have studied Confucianism and is revered as a god of literature. He is often portrayed as a nine-foot-tall giant with a two-foot-long beard, scarlet face, the eyes of a phoenix, eyebrows of silkworms and carrying a halberd.
