Antagonist 反面角色:

Wei (The Taotie) 韦桑(饕餮)

HR7A6353

Once, the Taotie was Wei, King of Shambala, a society of luxuriant genius. Wei ruled in kindness, and used his telepathic abilities to influence people to trade peacefully and beneficially with the other regions. Wei was so beloved that he communicated closely with Da – the creator of Shambhala.

But, when Jin trapped Da and the three worlds separated, Shambala was made poor and Wei found he couldn’t stand his life without luxuries – so he traveled until he reached the Peach Blossom Neverland, where he was trapped by the powerful magic there that made everyone happy. Wei found that he could only work on people’s wants, and since nobody in the PBN ever wanted, they were immune to the Wei’s power. Soon, he was nothing but a mist, and he never made it back to Shambala.

Since then, Wei has sought only satisfaction, and for that, the people of the PBN must be made unhappy first – then, Wei can bring himself back to his form, and help free Da to end his dissatisfaction and set things back to how they were. Wei is a formidable enemy – his ability to influence minds is no less since he’s lost his physical form.

韦桑原本是香巴拉的国王。他用念力影响人们与其他世界的贸易交往,使香巴拉长期和平富庶。韦深受子民爱戴,也因此成为香巴拉创造者-画师宇文靼的好友。然而,当法师姜晋将宇文靼封印之后,三个画中世界被分开,香巴拉陷入贫困。发现自己无法离开奢华的生活,韦桑离开香巴拉,来到了桃花源,却被那里强大的魔法困住。韦桑的力量来自人类的贪婪和欲望,但因为桃花源的人没有任何贪欲,他的力量无法影响他们。没过多久,他便化作一团黑雾,再也无法返回香巴拉。

从那时起,韦桑一心只想要自我满足,而唯一的办法就是让人们变得不快乐,如此韦桑才能恢复自己的形体,并将宇文靼解放出来,让一切回归正轨。韦桑是一个不容小觑的敌人,他虽然失去人形,但操控思想的能力丝毫不减。
