Origin[edit | edit source]

Zhang Guo is one of the eight Taoist immortals of legend. He is depicted as an elderly man who travels on a white donkey and plays the fish drum. The fish drum is a percussion instrument made with a bamboo rod with fish skin stretched over the ends.

In Taoist mythology, Zhang Guo is able to travel up to a thousand li (about 333 miles per day), on his white donkey. When he is done riding he shrinks the donkey until it can fit in his pocket. When he wishes to resize the donkey he just needs to pour water on it from his mouth.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The fish drum must be struck with one of the drumsticks, and then pointed at a target. The target will then shrink until it is small enough to fit into the pocket of the user.

The object/victim can only be un-shrunk by coming into contact with water that has been in the mouth of the user. A mixture of water and the user's saliva has been proven just as effective.

Collection[edit | edit source]

This artifact was originally found by Subhas Chandra Bose during World War 2. It was collected by agent Sam Wyatt, along with the other numerous artifacts that Bose had gathered for the Axis Powers. Bose is now in the Bronze sector.
