2 Gods Of Wealth From Netherworld:
Big Brother in White Robe - Dua Yah Peh(大爷伯) - Xie Bi An (谢必安)
2nd Brother in Black Robe - Di Ya Peh (二爷伯) - Fan Wu Jiu (范无救)
The two Deities together, they are often known as Dua Di Ya Peh (大二爷伯) by the Southern Chinese of Hokkien and Teochews and also known as Hei Bai Wu Chang(黑白无常) in Mandarin.
There are more than a pair of Dua Di Ya Peh (大二爷伯) in the Netherworld, therefore the stories of how they died will be different.
They are known as Hei Bai Wu Chang(黑白无常) in the netherworld and not Dua Di Ya Peh (大二爷伯). Their appointments are like Sergeant Rank in the army. They are allowed to move freely between the Netherworld and Earth.
Since their life stories began in Southern China , they are known among the Southern Chinese and the Oversea - Chinese in South East Asia but other parts of China may never know about these 2 Hell Deities.
The history goes like this... told by the White and Black Brothers during trance..
Centuries ago, in a Southern province of China, there were two sworn brothers by the name of Xie Bi An and Fan Wu Jiu . Both were Constables working in the Government Office.
During that period, opium was introduced into China. Chinese was tricked into believing that opium was Longevity Paste(长寿糕) by the British. Hence, many people including Xie Bi An and Fan Wu Jiu were taken in by these lies and became hooked onto them.
However, as a head of the constable then, the decision from Xie Bi An (谢必安) was vital. He was given 2 choices at that time, to take bribery, close an eye and continue enjoying with endless supply of opium or face death and expose the deadly drug in China.
Dua Ya Pek was already badly addicted by that time. If he chose the former offer, more Chinese will be killed from the drugs unknowingly. If he chose the latter, he will be killed from running out of opium stock very soon. As a responsible and a righteous man, Dua Ya Pek chose to save the Chinese and end his life by hanging himself from a rope just outside the City Gate.
Dua Ya Pek body was later removed by Dee Ya Pek. Dee Ya Pek was too distraught with the incidence and eventually decided to end his life by jumping into the sea the next day.
Dua Ya Pek was killed by hanging himself thus his tongue stuck out.
Dee Ya Pek die of drowning and thus his face is blacken.
In view of their righteous character and responsible personality, the Jade Emperor (Heavenly God) appointed them to becomes the constables of the hell. Beside carrying out law and order in hell, they are to capture the wondering spirits on earth and also required to provide ritual services in the human world to help the human folks.
Both Dua Ya Pek and Di Ya Pek are two of the many other subordinates of 'Chen Wang Yeh' (城王爷) - A Judge In The Netherworld .
