The self-proclaimed "Great Sage of the Seas" (覆海大圣 fù hǎi dà shèng), Saurian1 Demon King, is one of the Seven Great Sages (七大圣 qī dà shèng) from the Journey to the West (西游记 xī yóu jì) - seven sworn brothers, each more powerful than the next. The other six include:
- The Monkey King (孙悟空 sūn wù kōng)
- Bull-Demon King (牛魔王 niú mó wáng)
- Roc Demon King (鹏魔王 péng mó wáng)
- Lion Spirit King (狮狔王 shī nǐ wáng)
- Macaque Spirit King (猕猴王 mí hóu wáng)
- Snub-nosed monkey Spirit King (禺狨王 yú róng wáng)
1 The English translation of his name is not accurate. "Saurian" is defined as [adj. of or like a lizard], however, the character 蛟 (jiāo) represents a powerful dragon from Chinese mythology known as the Jiao Long (蛟龙 jiāo lóng). He has nothing in common with and is in no way a representation of a lizard.
