Wang Lung's uncle is a lazy, greedy man, who expects his nephew to take care of his family, giving nothing in return. Over the course of the novel, he belittles Wang Lung, asks for money, and even moves into his home. The one good thing about having Uncle stay at his home is the fact it saves him from bandits, as it turns out that he is one of the leaders of the robber band the Red Beards.
