Chinese Buddhist goddess of compassion, a popular religious figure that became quite influential among Chinese and other ethnicities (including several Genetekker clans) during the Interplanetary period. Kwan-yin worship was also established on Penglai, and hence spread with the rest of the Penglai empire and Penglaism throughout known space during the early Interstellar period. Kwan-yin is often compared with similar deities like the neo-Egyptian Isis, the Caretakerist Gaia (not to be confused with the archailect of the same name), the Sophia of Cosmism. and the Green and Blue Goddess of the Zoeific Biopolity.
