Personality[edit | edit source]

Ri En's first appearance in front of Ren Pa and Ka Rin gave them the impression that he was a silent person. When dismissed by Ka Rin as a pencil pusher from the Chu Imperial Palace and a mouse that can only make empty threats, Ri En nonchalently reciprocated her disdain by mentioning his loathing for warmongering brutes. He also showed himself to be calm and pragmatic as he explained his reasoning behind why he had to assassinate his secret brother-in-law, Shun Shin Kun, and why he wished to parter with Ka Rin as a co-Prime Minister. While he did not particularly like Ka Rin, he knew that they both did not want Chu to become a victim of the other state's opportunism if Chu were to experience a succession crisis.

History[edit | edit source]

He created a new temporary "Double Prime Minister" system, stabilizing the Chu politics within a month, the Prime Ministers are him and Ka Rin

Story[edit | edit source]

Koku You Campaign Arc[edit | edit source]

Ri En's sister was found to be pregnant with Shun Shin Kun's child. Ri En, Shun Shin Kun and the king planned to make this child the king's child so that the king's younger brother (whose deviant and erratic traits would bring the Chu to ruin if he ruled) will not become the new king in the future, even if that means putting someone without the royal bloodline on the throne.
However, just before the death of the king, Shun Shin Kun changed his mind and wanted to let the king's brother ascend the throne instead, and since it was too late to change their plans, as revealing the secret will result in death to all parties involved, including himself and his sister, he had to kill Shun Shin Kun, also both Shun Shin Kun and him sent assassins to kill each other, but only he survived.

Shou Hei Kun and Kai Oku were discussing Karin accepting Rien's offer to become the prime minister of Chu as Rien created a new temporary "Double Prime Minster" system, stabilizing the Chu politics within a month.
They were pretty surprised by this development and estimates that Rien might be a better politician than themselves.
