The First Emperor

(Ying Zheng) (259-210 BC)---After he conquered all the six states and established the first feudal dynasty in China's history-the Qin Dynasty, Ying Zheng proclaimed himself Shi Huangdi (First August Emperor). In his 29 years of rule, the First Emperor had many achievements including establishing the Qin Dynasty to end the chaos of the Warring States period, creating a centralized bureaucratic system of government, which largely lasted throughout Chinese imperial history, standardizing metrology (the system of weights and measures) and traditional Chinese characters, and building the Great Wall.

He was a man as gifted in administrative ability as he was in military ability. But he ruled with heavy reliance on fear as a weapon and the cruelty of his rule is nowhere more clearly illustrated than with the huge loss of human life involved in the building of his palaces (he built more than 700 of them including the huge Epang Palace) and tomb and in particular the Great Wall. It is said one man died for every meter of the Great Wall constructed. During the First Emperor's rule over 5,000 km were constructed.

Prince Fu Su

Prince Fu Su was the eldest son of the First Emperor and is the leading character in the game. He was the Crown Prince but angered his father when he had the courage to object to the orders to burn the books and bury the scholars alive. His punishment was to be sent north in disgrace to assist in the construction of the Great Wall and the defense of the Northern Border. Having been removed from the center of power, he was exposed to the evil machinations of the Chief Eunuch, Zhao Gao and the Prime Minister, Li Si. Shortly before his death the First Emperor had named Prince Fu Su his successor but when the First Emperor died of a sudden illness Zhao Gao and Li Si, fearing for their positions should the liberal Crown Prince take the throne, kept his death secret, suppressed the edict naming Fu Su the First Emperor's successor and forged another edict ordering Fu Su and the Great General Meng Tian to commit suicide. Both Fu Su and Meng Tian obeyed this edict and immediately after they had done so Zhao Gao and Li Si announced the death of the First Emperor and had Hui Hai, Prince Fu Su's younger brother, ascend the throne as the Second Emperor of Qin.

Whilst in history both Fu Su and the Great General Meng Tian tragically killed themselves in obedience to the fake edict, in the game they both live and Fu Su launches himself on a mission to find out the truth behind the edict and once he discovers the plot against him to seek his revenge against those who had betrayed him and his father and to seek his birth right.
