In 707 C.E., she ascended into heaven to become an immortal. Her symbol is a lotus pod, which can improve one's physical and mental health. In Jackie Chan Adventures, Tso Lon is seen defeated by a man, and Xiao Fung is seen defeated by a woman, so perhaps the two immortals were switched.

He Xiangu was an actual figure from Taoist mythology. She is perhaps the only female of the Immortals (Lan Caihe is somewhat ambiguous), and lived during the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907 C.E.) a personage, perhaps Lao Tzu (the founder of Taoism) appeared to her in a dream when she was 14 or 15, and instructed her to eat powdered mica, which would make her immortal if she remained a virgin. In 707 C.E., she ascended into heaven to become an immortal. Her symbol is a lotus pod, which can improve one's physical and mental health.

In Jackie Chan Adventures, Tso Lon is seen defeated by a man, and Hsi Wu is seen defeated by a woman, so perhaps the two immortals were switched.
