Gesar Khan

Mongolian - A warrior-hero. It was said that he was born from an egg which emerged from his mother's head. He had three eyes, resembling the three eye-shaped marks on his birth-egg, but his mother was terrified by the implications and she plucked one of the eyes out of its socket. He was sent from heaven to rid the world of evil. When he had accomplished his mission, he was purified on Margye Pongri and then taken up to heaven. He will return when evil becomes rampant again. In some lore, occasionally identified as Gesar Khan, Gesar, Gesar, Joro or Kesar.
