According to popular belief Zaw-Gyi is a demigod clad in red, full of vigour, who lives in the forest. He always carries a magic stick. He has a friendly face, which also expresses his philosophical mind. As he is an Alchemist, he grinds medical plants with his magic stick on a stone slab. When he achieves success, he dances about and does acrobatics and he even sits on his magic stick. He is a puppet character who is capable of flying through the air and boring through the earth.
