Au Co is said to be descended from fairies, and Quan from dragons. After some time, the husband and wife parted, each taking 50 children with them. Au Co returned to the mountains, and Quan to the sea.

Lac Long Quan is a beloved legend who wanted to help the people by ridding them of several beasts who posed danger to the locals. One of Quan’s greatest conquests is when he took on Ho Tinh, who had been threatening the people of Long Biên for many years.

Ho Tinh has origins in Chinese mythology as well, and could have come to Vietnam through Chinese imperialism.

Interestingly, the “fox spirit” is also known in Japanese and Korean legends.
