|Romaji||Sou Jou Ou|
Ei I Jin
Ei Shi So
Sou Jou's face was not seen yet, but he was shown to have long black hair tied in the back.
Not much is known about his personality, but he seemed like a mediocre man who was very easy to manipulate.
Sou Jou was held captive in the royal capital of Zhao, Kantan, for over a decade. He got aid from Ryo Fui. Later on, he got married to a Zhao dancing girl and fathered the oldest one of two children named Ei Sei and the youngest one with a royal princess of Qin named Sei Kyou. The latter grew up in the Qin capital while the former was left behind in Zhao as Sou Jou escaped back to Qin while Ei Sei and his mother couldn't escape with them. The escape was orchestrated by Ryo Fui as he knew that Sou Jou was a royal prince and was about to be next in line to be king. If he made Sou Jou owe him favors then he could make Sou Jou his puppet. Ryo Fui made him appoint him to the chancellor and him so he got one step closer to be king of Qin. This was after Ryo Fui made Sou Jou king of Qin and held this position for three years as he then died and was given to his son Ei Sei.
Sou Jou died before the start of the current timeline.
It is unknown if he had any leading abilities as a king, as he died too early in his reign.
- Before taking the throne, his name was "Shi So".
