Fu Qian!

Unread postby Sima Hui » Sun Oct 17, 2004 10:27 am

I think that Fu Qian is a great guy. Who else here thinks that? Have you even heard of him? If not, then listen up!

Fu Qian was the son of Fu Tong, who famously said, "No Han general ever submits to the dogs of Wu!" and died at Yiling.

Fu Qian fought alongside Jiang Wei on the Northern Campaigns and once killed two generals in a single fight. He also defended Hanzhong with Jiang Shu when Zhong Hui came.

When Zhong Hui arrived Fu Qian attacked him, whilst Jiang Shu held the pass. After initially routing Zhong Hui, Hui counterattacked. Fu Qian fled back to the pass, only to find that Jiang Shu had surrendered. Fu Qian denounced Jiang Shu saying, "Traitor! How can you face the world again! I have lived as a servant of Shu and so I shall die as one!"

He then fought to the death against Zhong Hui, but when his horse toppled over, Fu Qian slit his own throat and died.

I think that Fu Qian doesn't get much recognition, but what do you think?

Fu Qian i think has the best death in SGYY (as i stated in the most memorable death thread). A somewhat forgotten general ahd whose very words i live by. :wink: Death to Wu!! :lol: No just joking.

I know about him. I also like him a lot. He is very underrated.

He basicly had a similar death as his father. He fought bravely against a great enemy and showed great skill. Very admirable indeed.

I think a lot of the 'later generals' are underrated, simply because they're widely unknown. Fu Qian's father also had a HEROIC death.
