Appearance

The Three Great Heavens were three of the most powerful and legendary Great Generals from the state of Zhao.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Three Great Heavens appeared during King Sho's period of war, being originally composed of the older Zhao generals Ren Pa, Chou Sha, and Rin Shou Jo. The current Three Great Heavens of Zhao are Ri Boku and Hou Ken, while the third seat of the third Great Heaven is empty, thus the third general has yet to be rewarded.

History[edit | edit source]

The Three Great Heavens had fought several times with the Six Great Generals of Qin. One of the most crucial battles were the battles fought between Ou Ki and Ren Pa.

Strength[edit | edit source]

The strength and abilities of the previous Three Great Heavens were on par with Qin's Six Great Generals, Wei's Seven Dragons, and eastern Yan's Great General, Gaku Ki.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Their weakness seems to be bad relations with their kings. During the Battle of Chouhei, Zhao lost the war due to the prevous king's decision to replace Ren Pa as a supreme commander with Chou Katsu. Years later, due to his immense dislike for him. A newly crowned Tou Jou stripped Ren Pa of his rank and title which resulted in an internal conflict and loss of the renown general as he went to the state of Wei for asylum. He also refused to give Ri Boku command of the the Kantan elite army during Qin's invasion of Gyou.

First Generation[edit | edit source]

Zhao's original Three Great Heavens

The Zhao Three Great Heavens was the pendant to Qin's Six Great Generals and Wei's Seven Fire Dragons. They were composed of:

Out of the original three, only Ren Pa is still alive but has been exiled from Zhao.

Second Generation[edit | edit source]

Zhao's Second Generation of Great Heavens, Great General Ri Boku and the Bushin, Hou Ken.

In the second generation, there are only two known generals with that title:

In the Battle at the Shukai Plains, Hou Ken was cut down and defeated by Ri Shin of Qin and Ri Boku was punished for failing to keep the Qin armies from taking Gyou. This leaves potential seats open, but it remains unclear, who could fill these gaps.

Possible Candidates[edit | edit source]

The third one is yet to be given to the final member of the Zhao Three Great Heavens. At some point in before the story, Shi Ba Shou of Seika City's talents in warfare caught the eyes of Ri Boku and in recognition of his abilities, he sent his recommendation of the city lord to be the final member. Tou Jou, the king of Zhao followed his proposal and summoned the city lord, but he turned down his appointment due to his immense dislike for the king and the courts of central Zhao. Kei Sha, a protege of Ri Boku's, was also said to be the closest to take a final seat, however, he was killed by the young commander of the Hi Shin Unit, Shin before he could reach the position. Many commanders in Zhao, such as the young 3000-commander, Fu Tei, and Shou Mou, were aiming for the title.
