LIU-BEIAlso known as LIU-PEI, LIU-XUAN-DE, XUANDE
God of Shoes and Heroics.Although a shoemaker and weaver by trade, he was actually a distant relative of Han Dynasty Emperor Liu. In that troubled time of rebellion and civil war, friends in high places were of no avail. Still, he thought, at least everyone needs shoes.
As all hell broke out across the country, with rebels and war all over the place, LIU-BEI swore a mighty oath to defend his Emperor. As told in Romance Of The Three Kingdoms, he joined forces with ZHANG-FEI and GUAN-YU and became an one of the Three Peach Orchard Brothers — and an instant hero.
LIU-BEI was tall, extremely good-looking, and, thanks to the fortuitous positioning of his eyeballs, blessed with amazing eyesight. (Not only X-ray vision, but Y and Z-vision too.)
But for such a mighty warrior, he was modest and kindly, which made him all the more popular.
