Judge Bao was a poker-faced government official known for his righteousness and absolute adherence to the law in Chinese folklores. Legend has it that Judge Bao, while presiding over trials in this world in daytime, practiced justice in the nether world during the night. His signature crescent motif on the forehead is believed to be testimony to his super ability of travelling to the hell.
