At some point during the War of Unification, Hephaestus created the Sword of Eden #2 to bring an end of the conflict. Purportedly, after the war, the Isu despersed the swords to five different corners of the world (East Asia, West Asia, Southeast Asia, West Europe, North Africa) for safekeeping purposes. Nü Wa and her husband were the guardians of the sword.
Like their Western counterpart, the Hua Xu were excellent craftsmen. Nü Wa was the creator of the Asian humans, creating them out of clay. In order to wake them, Nü Wa worked alongside Zhu Rong, the master-smith of the eastern Isu.
