 Presenting a collection of in-game officer biographies from Koei's

 Section II - INTRODUCTION
 ----------------------------------------
 The objective of this informational collection is simple: to gather all the
 biographies from Koei's Romance of the Three Kingdoms X in a single location
 for easy reference and use. All biographies are as they appeared in the game,
 Romance of the Three Kingdoms X, but many corrections have been made. These
 corrections are injected in the same way they always should be when adding
 to an original work -- [with brackets] -- and are original material created
 by members of this project.

 Also worthy of note are the lifespan, kingdoms served, and style name fields.
 Lifespan information strives to be historical, but when in doubt, comes from
 the novel, Romance of the Three Kingdoms. For information that is specifically
 historical in nature, visit Kongming's Archives (kongming.net). Kingdoms
 Served is, as the name implies, a reference to the kingdoms an officer has
 served, but includes both historical and fictional information. Style names
 (or 'zi') are historical and collected from numerous sources.
