BiographyEdit

Service under Liu BeiEdit

Zhuge Liang married Huang Yueying while he was a young man, after much searching for her talent despite her ugliness. One day, Liu Bei tried to visit him after recommendation of one of the strategist's friends, Xu Shu. However, the man was not there. Liu Bei visited two more times only to meet him the third visit. Honored, Zhuge enlisted as the lord strategist for Liu Bei's Army. Zhuge Liang fought against Xiahou Dun and Cao Hong at the Battle of Bo Wan Po in Xinye, 202, northern Jing Province, luring the Wei commanders Han Hao, Yu Jin, and Xiahou into traps that resulted in fire attacks as well as ambushes by Guan Yu and Guan Ping. The victory at Bo Wan Po allowed Zhuge to prove his worth. However, Liu Bei still had to flee from Cao Cao's massive army and this resulted in further conflict.

Zhuge aided Liu Bei's retreat at the Battle of Chang Ban in 208 by holding off the enemy attacks on the refugees, a ghastly tactic, but useful in redirecting the focus of retreating on guarding the innocents. Zhuge Liang, Zhao Yun, and Zhang Fei blocked vital passageways that the Cao Cao Army troops could have gone through. All three fell back once Liu Qi's navy and Guan Yu arrived to ferry Liu Bei's army and people away to Han Shui.

Liu Bei knew that he could not keep retreating and let Cao Cao butcher all that fell behind, so he sent Zhuge to confer with the King of the Southlands, Sun Quan. He gained an important ally and resource in Lu Su, a politician and strategist of Eastern Wu. Lu Su was amongst many ministers such as Cheng Pu and Zhou Yu that fully supported an alliance between the Liu and Sun families against Cao Cao, who was granted an army of 250,000-800,000 soldiers by Emperor Xian to crush the southern "rebellion". The four men succeeded in urging Sun Quan to fight rather than surrender. This done, Zhou Yu and Zhuge Liang became fast friends.

The largest battle of the Three Kingdoms Era was the Battle of Chi Bi, a naval battle on the Yangtze River. Zhuge Liang stayed while Liu Bei and his men left the alliance due to suffering from typhoid. The men of Wu had less than 50,000 men to face Cao Cao's massive army, so Huang Gai suggested a fire attack with fireships. However, the wind was on Cao Cao's side. Cao thought of using fire, and put Cai Mao and Zhang Yun in charge of the naval forces. However, Zhuge Liang predicted correctly when he knew the winds would change. And so, Huang Gai used a fire attack to raze the entire enemy fleet of over 100,000 vessels. Cai Mao and Zhang Yun were executed and Liu Bei and his men returned to attack the enemy main land post. Cao Cao and his army returned to the land, but their army was besieged in a small castle and he barely escaped behind Guan Yu's back. The victory at Chi Bi, however did not end anything, not the chaos, not the death, not Cao Cao.

But Zhuge Liang became master strategist of Liu Bei's army regardless of how much complete and total the triumph. He recruited the hermit Pang Tong, whose time not in battle was spent drinking. When Liu Bei entered Yi Province in aid of Liu Zhang against Cao Cao, the two strategists conspired with Fa Zheng and Zhang Song to sneak attack the governor Liu. Liu Bei gave strict orders not to, but the generals Pang, Zhuge, Huang Zhong, and Wei Yan snuck out with their divisions and seized Luo Castle. However, at the Battle of Luo Feng Po, Pang Tong was ambushed and struck dead with an arrow fired by Zhang Ren. In the next battle, the Battle of Cheng Du, Zhuge Liang lured Zhang Ren out of Cheng Du Castle and captured him. This allowed the main gates of Cheng Du to open, and Liu Bei (who wanted no more than to avenge Pang Tong) seized the castle, meeting cheerful civilians.

With Yi secure, Liu Bei's domains became known as Shu Han while Cao Cao's were Cao Wei and Sun Quan's were Eastern Wu. Zhuge Liang coordinated a joint attack on Cao Cao with Guan Yu, who was to seize Fan Castle while Zhuge took Han Zhong. At the battles of Mt. Ding Jun and Han Zhong, respectively, he managed to defeat the enemy forces quickly and killed Xiahou Yuan in the process. However, Guan Yu was betrayed by both Wu and officers Pan Jun, Fu Shi Ren, and Mi Fang and was killed by Lu Meng. In 222, Liu Bei campaigned against Wu to seek vengeance for his brother's death.

The Battle of Yi Ling showed how much Wu used fire; Zhu Ran commenced a fire attack on the Shu camp. Liu Bei was trapped amongst the flames, to be saved by Zhuge and Ma Liang's reinforcements. However, Ma Liang was killed in the retreat through Zhuge's Stone Sentinels Maze. Liu Bei resided in Bai Di Castle until his death one year later. On his deathbed, he told Zhuge that should Liu Shan prove unworthy, he would be allowed to rule Shu.

Zhuge's Northern ExpeditionsEdit

Liu Shan, second Emperor of Shu Han, allowed Zhuge to campaign north. Launching his first Northern Expedition, he saw some success at Tian Shui, but Ma Su's defeat at Jie Ting sealed his fate. Done for, he returned another time only to be beaten at Chen Cang. His Third Northern Expedition won at Jianwei, but was defeated by Guo Huai. His fourth northern expedition ended in victory at the Battle of Mt. Qi, but the Wei troops under Dai Liang repelled their campaign. His last expedition came at the Battle of Wu Zhang Plains.

He made Jiang Wei, the Prodigy of Tian Shui, the army commander while he slowly died. Jiang Wei won a great victory over Sima Yi, but Zhuge Liang died after the victory, leaving his post to Ma Dai, Fei Yi, Zhang Yi, Zhang Yi, and Wang Ping, and their supreme commander would be Jiang Wei.
