Gong Gong stumbled into The Aura World one day when he was looking through his kitchen cupboard for cucumber sandwich ingredients. He loved how beautiful and peaceful the world was, and took residence in an abandoned pagoda by the river. Gong Gong always wears a black cap his daughter (Kerensa's mother) gave him and hasn't returned to The Real World in four years. He's known as the best chef in The Paddy, and was a long lost relative of Kerensa's until she found him after stumbling into The Aura World herself.
he two were often seen drinking tea by the river or fishing together, and she sometimes sang to him.
