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
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

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
