1. Inescapable bad luck, or someone/something who brings about misfortune.
2. Initials for Xiang-Rui, which in ancient China means the evilest creature in the universe or its special ability to bring about enigmatical misfortune that can never be shunned from. Today, the Chinese usually refer to it indirectly as XR or something like "you-know-who", so as to escape the bad luck.
