The Tenkan Star, known also as the Star of Idleness, is one of the 108 Stars of Destiny.

Tenkan Stars are usually powerful magicians associated with True Runes, in some way. They are also the Tablet Guardian, except for Ted. Lots of Tenkan Stars are the loner type, and in later games, their names start with Z.

The original Tenkan Star, from the novel Water Margin, was Gongsun Sheng, also known as Single Purity and Dragon in the Clouds. Like his counterparts in the games, Sheng was a powerful magician, but he was also one of the head strategists for the Liangshan bandits.
