(Deity)HOTEI

In a nutshell ...
God of : Children, The Weak and Poor
Religion : Buddhism
Attributes : coming soon ...
Gang : Shichi Fukujin

Japanese Shinto God of Luck. His Name Means Cloth Bag.

One of the Shichi Fukujin, Hotei is the god of happiness and laughter, and has a particular interest in children but not in a pervy way. He's their patron and also patron of the weak.

He carries a huge cloth bag full of prescious thing which he happily dishes out and has a huge fat belly, but i have it on good authority that this represents a sign of contentment and not a sign of too many burgers and chips.
