(Deity)JUROKURAKAN

Also known as RAKAN

The Sixteen Arhats who pave the way for buddhas law.

They do nothing but meditate and are said to be perfect examples of the saintly way of life... all except Binzuru who broke a vow of chastidy which was deeply frowned upon.

Looking like a bag of bones with huge earlobes and funny shaped foreheads, the Jurokurakan weren't exactly attractive. I would imagine offers from the opposite sex were minimal to say the least, so you can hardly blame Binzaru for grasping what could well have been a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Unfortunately his little misdemeanor has blown any chance he had of making it to Nirvana and is even banned from temples where the other guys are praying, which seems a little extreme. Oh well, i am more than happy to see him stay on earth and put his amazing healing powers to good use. Maybe one day he will be forgiven.
