||Kui-xing Choosing a Champion
Kui-xing dian dou
(Title in original language)
||Kui-xing is a deity who decides the winner of imperial examinations.
||"Kui-xing" translates to "Star of Kui"; the term originally denoted the first (or primary) of the seven stars ("qi-dou") in the southern sky. As a result, "Kui" eventually absorbed the meaning of "champion," and therefore "Kui-xing" is the deity who selects champions.
