Kofusachi, often also known as The Laughing God , is the Tian-Hwan god of joy and prosperity.1

Appearance

Kofusachi is normally depicted in art as a plump older Tian man with calloused feet who is always smiling joyfully. He caries with him a walking stick and is always followed by a small pack of loyal dogs.1

Relationships

Kofusachi is somewhat of a libertine and over the millennia he has taken many, many gods and goddesses as lovers. He is known to maintain remarkably strong friendships with Daikitsu, Lady of Foxes; Desna, Goddess of the North Star; and Shelyn, Lady of Chrysanthemums.1

Church of Kofusachi

As the god of happiness, prosperity, and abundance, Kofusachi's blessing is sought for a variety of occurrences from significant events like a wedding, the birth of a child, or an important business deal, to the more mundane, like at the start of a long journey. Kofusachi is primarily worshipped in the Tian Xia nations of Hongal, Hwanggot, and Tianjing.1 Akafuto, the second largest trading port in Minkai, is home to a famous temple dedicated to Kofusachi and the prosperity he brings, called Ukuashi-Ji.2

Holy symbol, favoured weapon, and sacred animal

Kofusachi's holy symbol is a string of seven coins. His holy weapon is the walking stick he uses, a bo staff, while his sacred animal is the dog, similar to those that constantly follow him.1
