Biography

Sanguo Yanyi

Zuo Feng was a eunuch of the Han courts. After Zhang Jue hindered Lu Zhi in one of their battles, the Han courts sent Zuo Feng to inquire as to the nature of his failures. Zuo Feng demanded a bribe when he arrived. Lu Zhi explained how hard-pressed his forces were, and that under the circumstances he could not furnish anything appropriate, which angered him. He returned to the Han court and reported that Lu Zhi was afraid to face Zhang Jue’s forces; that he was hiding in the ramparts of his castle, refusing to give battle, and as a result was demoralizing his men.

As a result, the Han court had Lu Zhi arrested for trial at the capital. Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei encountered the small armed force on the way, but Liu Bei checked his brothers and reminded them that the government would take its course. Lu Zhi would later be pardoned and restored to rank after Huangfu Song reported his merit and deeds during the rebellion.
