Folklore: A huge school of golden koi swimming upstream a yellow river. At the end of the river was a waterfall, many turned back, letting the flow of the river carry them away.
The remaining Koi refused to give up, Leaping from the depths of the river, they attempted to reach the top but to no avail. Their efforts caught the attention of demons, who mocked their efforts.
After a hundred years of jumping, one Koi finally reached the top. The Gods recognized its perseverance and determination and turned it into a Golden Dragon, the image of power and strength.
