Korean - A midget. Son of Taro. Husband of Uriko. He was born when his mother, following instructions given to her in a dream, placed a chopstick in a bowl of rice near the fire. Although only about one foot tall, he routed a gang who had kidnapped three maidens, and he married one of them, Uriko. When he prayed to a river-goddess he grew to normal size. Occasionally called Chopstick.
