Pi Xiu

It is the ninth offspring of the dragon. Covered with whitish-grey fur, Pixiu has the head of a Chinese dragon, but is commonly depicted with only one antler. Ancient Chinese depictions of Pixiu show the male with the single antler, and the female with two antlers. As with the Chinese Phoenix, the common image today is a representation of a single sex.


Pixiu craves for the smell of money and it likes to bring his master money in his mouth. Statues of this creature are often used to attract wealth in feng shui, and can also bee seen in mahjong parlours in Hong Kong and the Republic of China (Taiwan). In ancient China, statues of Pixiu were also used as tomb guardians.

Pixiu is also a fierce creature. The large fangs visible in the creature's mouth are used to attack demons and evil spirits, draining their essence and converting it to wealth. Pixiu also guards against disease caused by these same evil spirits.

In tribute to Pixiu's ferocity and prowess in battle, 'The Pixiu' was synonymous with the army in ancient China.
