Xuan Wu (Genbu in Japanese) is one of the four symbols of the Chinese Constellations, representing the "Black Tortoise of the North" and of the season of Winter. The other three symbols being the "Azure Dragon of the East" (see Seiryu), the "White Tiger of the West" (see Byakko), and the "Vermillion Bird of the South" (see Suzaku)
Each symbol corresponded to an element in the Five Element system, with Xuan Wu corresponding to the element of water. (In the Five Element system in China, there is a 5th legendary beast known as Huang Long, the Yellow Dragon of the Center. While there is no direct equivalent in Japanese, Huang Long is believed to be linked to the dragon Ouryu (see Ouryu)
