Wu

The Sun Family
• Sun Jian
Sun Jian believed he was a descendant of the great war strategist Sun Zi. He joined in the vanguard against Dong Zhou as magistrate of Chang Sha. Though he suffered one retreat due to lack of food, his success in the battlefield soon attained impressive stature. He was the only general whom Dong Zhou truly feared. Although his record of success was never tarnished, he died in battle against Liu Biao at Xiang Yang at a young age of thirty-seven. While in the ruins of Loyang, he found the Hereditary Seal discarded in a well. Within 24 hours of giving his son, Sun Ce, the Seal, Sun Jian died.

Sun Ce
Sun Ce was the oldest son of Sun Jian. He became ruler at the age of seventeen, after his father’s death. Sun Ce pawned the Hereditary Seal, inherited from his father, for a loan of troops from Yuan Shu. With these troops, he then conquered new territory. Sun Ce was very skilled in martial strategies, but his offensives were ruthless. After pacifying Jiang Dong, he gained the odd title of “Little Hegemony”. In the year 200, he was attacked by assassins and later died of the wounds. He was only twenty-six.

• Sun Quan
Sun Quan was the second son of Sun Jian and brother of Sun Ce. His father Sun Jian laid the foundation, his elder brother Sun Ce expanded it, and Sun Quan kept it intact. He became ruler of Jiang Dong at his dying brother Sun Ce’s behest when Sun Quan was a mere nineteen years old. He was a man with prominent features, having a square jaw, large mouth, and blue eyes. He had many talented men under him, including Zhou Yu, Lu Su, Zhuge Jin, Taishi Ci, Gan Ning and others. Sun Quan searched for many talented men, and just as Sun Ce enlisted the help of Zhou Yu, Sun Quan enlisted Lu Su. With the military talent that Sun Quan gathered, he was able to establish one of the kingdoms that gave the Three Kingdoms period its name. He was praised as the only one of his illustrious family with the character to ascend to that rank. Sun Quan far outlived both Sun Jian and Sun Ce, and the Wu kingdom was the last of the three kingdoms to fall.
