Namiki Emperor Shoki 鍾馗
According to a legend, Xuanzong, 6th Emperor of the Tang Dynasty, fell ill and dreamed that evil spirits possessed him. A great demon appeared and cast them out. Being asked to identify himself, he revealed to be called Shoki. When Xuanzong woke up, he was healed!
There is more than one legend about Shoki. In the Edo period, a man appeared to be a brilliant physician, but the Emperor revoked him due to his ugly appearance: long beard with a mustache, big shining eyes in a scowling face, dressed in worn cloths. The man killed himself and was doomed to be a demon queller. Since then, Shoki has been revered as the god who protects from evil spirits and sickness.
On the cap of this Namiki Emperor LE Shoki, a demon is hiding behind the clouds. Shoki is depicted on the body of the pen wearing a dark green cloak. He has a beard and a mustache, big eyes and a sword in his right hand. He looks at the sky to scare away demons.
