Who is Egg Shen?

So--Egg Shen... the way he comports himself, and the exchanges between him and Lo Pan... d'yall think that perhaps he, too, is an ancient sorcerer from way back in Lo Pan's past...? This is suggested by numerous bits of dialogue, for example Egg Lo Pan refers to Egg Shen as never having been able to beat him at their phantasmal combat. Also, defeating Lo Pan seems to have been Egg's sole purpose in life--he doesn't know what to do with himself afterwards... what say you all?

The Film definitely seems to hint that Egg Shen is a fairly old Chinese Sorcerer. Since a curse kept Lo Pan alive for all of this time, it stands to reason that magic in the BTiLC universe can be used to extend your lifespan.

I suppose I'd like to imagine, though admittedly based upon fairly flimsy evidence, that they're arch-nemeses, who go way, way back. Potential fodder for a prequel treatment there!

I've always seen Egg Shen as a human sorcerer, but one who's encountered Lo Pan many times. Probably beginning in his youth while apprenticing with his master in China.
