Pa Ch'a

Chinese - A god of grasshoppers. He is depicted as having a blue-green human torso, a bell in place of a stomach, red hair and the beak and claws of a bird. Some accounts say that he was originally a Mongolian peasant who was never harmed by the wolves and scorpions that abounded where he lived and whose crops were never affected by grasshoppers. Others equate him with Liu Meng, the god of agriculture. Also known as Pa Ch'a, Great King or Great King.
