Chung Kwei is the famous Chinese ghostbuster and a Star God of Literature who has a fierce-looking face whose duty is to subdue demons and also to energize scholastic luck. He is a very powerful figure, and has the command to kill any passing evil with his mighty sword.
During ancient times, Chung Kwei was an outstanding academic and swordsman. His goal was to become a court official, and he achieved this by excelling in imperial exams which was the main requirement to gain entrance to the bureaucracy. However, because his appearance was so ugly and repulsive, his application was rejected and he was refused his rightful honors by corrupt officials. Chung Kwai was devastated and killed himself in the Imperial palace. The emperor later found out about this incident when he fell ill and had a nightmare of a red devil wreaking havoc in the imperial palace and causing massive destruction. Chung Kwei came to the rescue and exorcised the demon, whom later told his story to the emperor, in his dream. Upon waking up, the emperor was cured of his illness and feeling bad about the fate of Chung Kwei, he ordered his portrait to be painted and displayed in his palace – Chung Kwei then became known as the God of Demon Buster, because his face was said to scare away any evil spirits or forces in the palace. In addition to this, because of his impressive academic abilities, he was also titled the Star God of Examinations.
