Quoth the Foo:

“Your destiny was writ by the Path of Heaven. I imagine it ends with your sacrilegious ass in the dirt. I am here due to your disrespect of the priesthood and their temple. Don’t worry, there is a Good Hell waiting for you, I will see you arrive there in a timely manner. The Path of Heaven will be realized.”

Kith Excerpt:

Chinese Guardian Lions, Shishi, Buddha Dogs, Tien-Ku, all the different titles have little bearing on these beasts of Heaven: all that matters is their position as guardians of the highest order, and heaven won’t protect anyone that stands in the way of their celestial duties. Closely related to similar heaven dogs in other kingdoms (the Ruìshī in Tibet, Chinthe in Thailand, Bulgae in this book) the Foo are easily the most recognized.

The Foo is an ever-present guardian the world over While most of them are found in the Three Kingdoms of Go, their duties find them serving numerous Dreaming Kingdoms. San Francisco, Hawaii, and as far away as New-York,; anyplace in which someone or something needs the protection that only the Heaven Dogs can offer. Where there are practitioners of Eastern Faiths, the Foo are present. It is their divine mandate to watch over priests, temples, and all the holiness there-in.

There are two varieties, and it might be hard to understand the differences between them; they both share the same Lucks and Curses (with a slight deviation). These are the Shīzi Fu (Lion Foo) and the Gǒu Fu (Dog Foo). Lion and Dog may be a bit of a misnomer, as they are both the same type of creature, with no difference in appearance. It should also be noted that gender has little bearing on these two variations. The females of the Kith can boast a lion’s mane as easily as the males and possess the heightened strength birthright as well.



“Dogs die. But dogs live, too. Right up until they die, they live. They live brave, beautiful lives. They protect their families. And love us. And make our lives a little brighter. And they don’t waste time being afraid of tomorrow.”
― Dan Gemeinhart, “The Honest Truth”
