Earl Kou was a General of Zhao and deputy in the Ri Boku Army.


The Earl was a big and powerful man, although somewhat fat. He was already an elder with a white moustache, shown wearing full battle armor and a helmet adorned with a thorn-like feature, protruding outward from its front side.


He seemed to be a serious man, ingrained with a soldiers' mentality.


It was mentioned that in the past his army spent years having Ri Boku's tactics beaten into them.


Western Zhao Invasion Arc[]

During the Battle at Shukai Plains, he was positioned at the center battlefield. On the 15th day of battle, the troops under his command finally had to spring into action as Ou Sen took the offensive. His battalions faced those of Den Ri Mi, and as they had been trained by Ri Boku himself, were able to gain the upper hand against the Qin.

The tide turns, however, as Ou Sen was able to pierce the secret behind the Origins Tactic employed by the Zhao, managing to even the odds. The Earl notices Shi Ryou and general Sou Ou making great advances towards Ri Boku's HQ and decides to personally put a halt to their incursion. He then fought against Shi Ryou in single combat. The Earl couldn't believe he was facing a woman, as he was greatly surprised by the sheer strength of her arms. The battle was fierce but brief, as he was sliced shoulder to rib when Shi Ryou's sword was able to cut through his glaive.

Experience B

As a seasoned warrior and deputy of Ri Boku, Earl Kou proved to be a talented commander. He was capable of using both strategical and instinctual warfare after training under Ri Boku himself.

Physical Abilities[]

Earl Kou was a capable fighter with the glaive. He was able to engage Shi Ryou in a single and fierce combat, before he was slain by her sheer strength.


Earl Kou proved to be a capable leader as he leaded his army in the frontline.

Tactical Abilities[]

It was mentioned by Fu Tei that the Earl's army spent years having Ri Boku's tactics drilled into them. They could also use the "Origin" tactic, in order to interpret the flow of battle and instantly react to any changes in enemy's formation - a characteristic that was first shown when he easily repelled Den Ri Mi's attacks using the Halting Point Formation. The Earl's troops were instrumental in the deployment of the Great Crane Formation, creating an assault that used the enemy's tactical maneuvers against them, pushing back into their ranks.
