Originally a Tibetan lama, he was appointed as Royal Advisor of Mongolia and he represents the Mongols in challenging the Han Chinese wulin (martial artists' community). He is defeated by Yang Guo in a battle at Xiangyang and dies after a pillar collapses on him. He is known as Jinlun Fawang (traditional Chinese: 金輪法王; simplified Chinese: 金轮法王; Mandarin Pinyin: Jīnlún Fǎwáng; Jyutping: Gam1-leon4 Faat3-wong4; literally "Golden Wheel Guardian King") in earlier editions of the novel.

Famous quotes containing the word empire:
“To found a great empire for the sole purpose of raising up a people of customers, may at first sight appear a project fit only for a nation of shopkeepers. It is, however, a project altogether unfit for a nation of shopkeepers, but extremely fit for a nation that is governed by shopkeepers.”
—Adam Smith (17231790)
