How Taishi Ci joined the Tourney

Taishi Ci usually starts as an officer under Liu Yong. When they're attacked by Sun Ce's army, he joins the invading army. This often occurs after he is defeated in combat during the Campaign for Wu Territory. Unless it is his own story, he often stays in Wu's ranks until the Battle of He Fei or He Fei Castle.

Taishi ci trained with his son Taishi Xiang on a stormy night. Just then, a knock was at the door. He found it was Cassie Cage who was looking for assistance in her Tourney mission.
