The true of it all was far more impressive. The man had appeared overnight and brought the grandest of riches. Their origin unknown and the man unwilling to explain. The man was a tall and dignified man who was growing old in age. Gray peppered a finely trimmed beard while clean robes of the softest of violets adorned his average frame. The man had come to live within the Hall of Knowledge, taking refuge within the modest quarters of the Confucian temple. Spending his days within the great libraries of the temple while spending his evenings within the assembly, sitting amongst his dwindling treasure and allowing men and women to seek his advice. The man had proved himself willing to give riches to those who sought knowledge, while those who sought nothing but gain quickly found themselves forced away. Once by the point of a sword when a man dared seize a priceless gem. Yet, by the day that grand treasure slowly dwindled away. More and more hauled off by those who sought knowledge. Yet, still he remained within the temple. Giving advice to those who came seeking knowledge. While claiming the greatest treasure of all would come to those who beat his riddles and puzzles. The first riddle was always the same, and it was a rather simple affair. Yet, it had proven enough to chase away those without true knowledge.
"Who was Zhìshèng?" the man questioned with a grin.
