In Chinese sources written two hundred to four hundred years ago, Lutings are described as semi-human sea creatures. Lutings were said to be descendants of a rebellious force led by LU Xun (盧循) (? - 411), and were considered by some to be the ancestors of the Tanka (蜑家) people; who were one of the four main groups of people of pre-British Hong Kong who used to live on boats.
