It was hard to understand everything Kinzan said, but Mya thinks Kinzan was trying to tell her that he/she is both male and female. Mya asked how to refer to him/her. Male or female, or is there another word to use that is more proper? Kinzan's response was, "you may refer to me as male since I never laid any eggs, and I was also able to dominate the largest of the qilin I ever came across if there was trouble. I conquered several qilin much larger than me because I am strong beyond measure". So, for the purpose of this listing, we will refer to him as male.
Kinzan is a male qi combined with a female ox who was born on May 10, 440 BC. He lived until October 14, 1942, exceeding the average lifespan of typical qilin. He was courageous and tough as nails! There have been many attempts at capturing him throughout his life, as he was very valuable in the sense that he was a mighty protector as well as a valuable token of good luck. No one was ever able to capture him, but if they had, he says he would not have protected them or brought them good luck. He tells us, "Live beings should not be held in captivity".
When we asked him about family, he did not respond. It may be that he did not have any family or that they died off early during his lifetime. Later, he brought up out of the blue that he will reunite with his family on December 17, 2088, and when he does, if his keeper (Boon) has already passed, he will be reunited with him, as well. If Boon has not yet passed away by the time Kinzan passes on December 17, 2088, Kinzan will be there to greet him when he arrives in the heavens. In the meantime, Kinzan tells us that he has much work to do here on earth, including helping his keeper with a few things. He also brings retaliation to anyone who harms animals. Kinzan is doing a great service to the light hearts of earth and helping to stamp out the dark hearts.
Kinzan likes the following foods and beverages: Spinach leaves, bamboo leaves, the bark of palm trees, cinnamon sticks, celery, cabbage, lemons, and water with lemon wedges. He said when he was living, he was very ill if he picked up something sweet to eat, but now that he does not eat because he is spirit, he would love to have some sweet buns or anything else that is sweet placed in front of him for a special occasional treat. He also likes green tea and black coffee. For other offerings, he likes anything shiny that sparkles in the sunlight, anything purple, red, or blue in color, and all animals. He does not like tall women, but he has not told us why. He enjoys hearing music, including anything his keeper likes, but also singing bowls, pan flutes, and hand pans.
General information about the qilin species:
Qilin generally have Chinese dragon-like features: similar heads with antlers, eyes with thick eyelashes, manes that always flow upward, and beards. The body is fully or partially scaled and often shaped like an ox, deer, or horse. They have cloven hooves. Qilin may be of any color or even various colors and can be depicted as bejeweled or exhibiting a jewel-like brilliance.
Qilin have appeared in the garden of the Yellow Emperor and in the capital of Emperor Yao; both events bore testimony to the benevolent nature of the rulers. It has also been told that the birth of the great sage Confucius was foretold by the arrival of a qilin.
