1. Introduction


"The Heavens have spoken!"

Hi! My name is Chris and this is the 1st FAQ I've ever made, so please bear
with me. I decided to make an FAQ on Zhang Jiao because I've always been a huge
fan of him dating back to Dynasty Warriors 4. His voice is heavenly, as is his
wardrobe. His old moveset wasn't the best, but his new set is much improved
upon and makes him much more fun to use.

If you'd like to add something to the guide that I haven't gotten, or want help
correct something, like a spelling mistake, incorrect grammar, or wrong info,
you can email me. Oh, and if you see this guide on a site that I don't have
listed in my copyright info or if someone else claims this FAQ to be his/her
own, please let me know and I will take action. Constructive criticism is
welcome, but if you send any derogatory/hate mail, I will NOT reply nor will I
read any further into it. I don't have time for people like that. I'll credit
you for any info that makes its way into my guide, so remember to put your name
or alias in the email so I can give proper credit where needed.

If you email me, put "Zhang Jiao DW6 FAQ" in the subject line. That way, I won't
delete it as spam mail.

2. Dynasty Warriors 6 Introduction


Dynasty Warriors 6 (also known as Shin Sangoku Musou 5) is a hack-n-slash game
created by KOEI and developed by Omega Force and is based on the "Romance of
the Three Kingdoms" novel by Luo Guanzhong. The game takes place in the "Three
Kingdoms" era of China where regional warlords fought for total control of the
country. It is the 6th game in the series.

DW6 is an amazing entry into the franchise. It shakes everything up and
rejuvinates the series. There is a new fighting system called "Renbu", where
you build up a meter to unlock more powerful attacks and longer chains. You can
easily get a 200+ chain with this new system. There is also a new feature called
a "Skill Tree", where different powerups (such as increased attack power,
defense power, new renbu ranks, etc.), are linked together and you can unlock
them to make your character and his/her skills more powerful.


3. Zhang Jiao's Bios


I will include 2 biographies of Zhang Jiao. A fully detailed ROTK bio, and the
shorter bio found in the DW6 Encyclopedia, just in case you aren't as interested
in his full one.

3.1. Zhang Jiao's Full ROTK Biography

A medical scholar by the name of Zhang Jiao, who had two younger brothers,
Zhang Bao and Zhang Liang, lived in Julu County during the later part of the
Han Dynasty.

Zhang Jiao made history when he met a venerable old man during one of his
journeys into the woods to gather medicinal herbs. The old man summoned Zhang
Jiao into a cave and there, handed Jiao the three volumes of the Book of Heaven.

"This book," said the old man, "is the Way of Peace. With the aid of these
volumes, you can convert and rescue mankind. But you must be single-minded, or
rest assure, you will greatly suffer." With a humble bow, Zhang Jiao accepted
the book and asked for the name of his benefactor. "I am Saint Hermit of the
South-Land," was the reply, as the old man disappeared into thin air.

Zhang Jiao studied the wonderful book eagerly, and strove night and day to put
its principles into action. Before long, he was able to summon the winds and
command the rain, and became known as the Mystic of the Way of Peace.

In the first month of the first year of Central Stability (AD 184), there was a
terrible epidemic that ran throughout the land, whereupon Zhang Jiao distributed
charmed remedies to the afflicted. The Godly medicine was a great success, and
Zhang Jiao was titled the Wise and Worthy Master. He began to have a following
of disciples, whom he initiated into the mysteries and sent them throughout the
land. Like their master, they were able to write charms and recite formulas, and
their success increased Zhang Jiao’s teaching.

Zhang Jiao began to organize his followers. He established thirty-six groups,
the larger with ten thousand or more members, the smaller with about half the
amount. Each group had a chief, who was the given the military title of General.

With the growth of his followers, grew Zhang Jiao’s ambitions. The Wise and
Worthy Master had visions of an Empire, which developed into plans of creating a
new empire. Zhang Jiao said to his brothers, "For schemes like ours, the most
difficult part is gaining the favour of the people. But such is already ours.
We cannot let such an opportunity pass." Thus they began the preparation. Such
preparations were carried out through Ma Yuanyi, who was sent to the Imperial
Palace with gifts to gain the support of the Ten Regular Attendants. Many
yellow flags and banners were made, and a day was chosen for the uprising.
Consistent to these actions, Zhang Jiao began writing letters to Feng Xu, one of
the Ten Regular Attendants.

However, he betrayed Zhang Jiao’s trust and reported the scheme to the Imperial
Court. The Emperor summoned the trusty Regent Marshal He Jin, to look into this
matter. With the betrayal, Ma Yuanyi was captured and beheaded, while Feng Xu
and many others were cast into prisons.

Since their plot has been exposed, the Zhang brothers were forced to take the
field immediately. They took up grandiose titles of: Zhang Jiao Lord of Heaven,
Zhang Bao Lord of Earth and Zhang Liang Lord of the People. With these names
they put forth this manifesto: "The good fortune of the Han is exhausted, and
the Wise and Worthy man has appeared. Discern the Will of Heaven, O ye people,
and walk in the way of righteousness, whereby ye alone may attain to peace."
Supports for Zhang Jiao’s ideology were consistent. Everywhere,people draped
their heads with yellow scarves and joined the army of the rebels. Soon Zhang
Jiao had the strength of nearly half a million troops, and the Imperial troops
melted away at a whisper of his coming.

At this time, Regent Marshal and Guardian of the Throne, He Jin, arranged for
preparations against the Yellow Scarves. Also an edict was commissioned, calling
upon everyone to fight back against the rebels. The three Imperial Commanders,
Lu Zhi, Huangfu Song and Zhu Jun marched with their veteran troops to three
different directions. Meanwhile, Zhang Jiao led his army in Youzhou against the
forces of Liu Yan, the Imperial Protector. Zhang Jiao sent his subordinate Cheng
Yuanzhi with fifty thousand troops into Youzhou. They camped at the foot of
Daxing Hills where they encountered the Imperial army, led by Zhou Jing, Liu
Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei. The enemy only had five hundred volunteer soldiers
to oppose Cheng Yuanzhi’s fifty thousand.

Flourishing his whip, Liu Bei began to hurl reproaches at the rebels, crying,
"O malcontents! Why not dismount and be bound?" Enraged, Cheng Yuanzhi sent
forth Deng Mao as his champion. Zhang Fei at once rode forward and struck down
Deng Mao with one powerful thrust trough the heart. At this, Cheng Yuanzhi
whipped up his steed and rode forth with his sword held high, ready to strike
at Zhang Fei. But Guan Yu raised his Green Dragon Sabre and rode towards Cheng
Yuanzhi. Overwhelmed by fear, Cheng Yuanzhi was unable to defend himself and was
cut in half. Having lost their leader, the Yellow Scarves dropped their weapons
and attempted to retreat. The Imperial army pursued and many were captured.
Soon after, the Yellow Scarves were defeated by the Imperial army in Qingzhou.
And Zhang Jiao’s invasion of the northern Zhou’s was a failure.

Meanwhile, Zhang Jiao himself was facing Lu Zhi’s army at Guangzhong. Zhang
Liang and Zhang Bao were firmly entrenched at Yingchuan, opposite Huangfu Song
and Zhu Jun. Aided by Liu Bei’s volunteer army, the Imperial army was successful
in pushing back the rebels at Yingchuan. Zhang Liang and Zhang Bao retreated
from Yingchuan and occupied the Changshe grasslands. However, the Imperial
troops were ordered to burn the grasslands at night. When the camp was set
ablaze, Zhu Jun and Huangfu Song raided the Yellow Scarves. The rebels panicked
and fled in all directions, leaving their camp and equipment behind.

The battle with the Imperial troops lasted till dawn. Zhang Liang and Zhang Bao,
accompanied by some elite followers, were able to escape the area. But suddenly
a troops of soldiers with crimson banners challenged them. Their leader was Cao
Cao, son of Cao Song and General of Flying Cavalry. Cao Cao’s troops slaughtered
the unprepared and unarmed rebels. He captured their war drums and horses, but
was unable to capture Zhang Liang and Zhang Bao. After conferring with Huangfu
Song and Zhu Jun, Cao Cao pursued the rebels.

Meanwhile at Guangzhong, Dong Zhuo’s Imperial troops were being overrun by
Zhang Jiao’s hundred and fifty thousand troops. Liu Bei’s army passed Guangzhong
just as Zhang Jiao’s troops were in pursuit of the Imperials. Liu Bei drove his
army into Zhang Jiaos’s ranks, and the confused rebels retreated some fifteen
miles. Liu Bei’s army retreated from the area and Cao Cao had joined up with
Huangfu Song to attack Zhang Liang, and a great battle ensued at Quyang. Zhu
Jun, aided by Liu Bei, went forth to challenge Zhang Bao, whom had positioned
himself at the foot of the hills with some eighty thousand men. Liu Bei led the
vanguard against Zhang Bao, he sent out Zhang Fei to duel with Gao Sheng. The
latter was wounded and beaten so Liu Bei sounded the attack. Then Zhang Bao,
while still mounted, loosened his hair, grasped his sword, and uttered his
incantations. Thereupon began the wind to howl and the thunder to roll, while a
dense black cloud from the heavens settled upon the field. And therein seemed
to be horsemen and footmen innumerable, who swept to attack the imperial troops.
Fear came upon them, and Liu Bei led off his troops, but they were in disorder
and returned defeated.

The next day however, Zhu Jun used the blood of pigs and dogs to counter Zhang
Bao’s shamanic arts. Seeing that his magic had failed, Zhang Bao turned around
to retreat. However he was being charged by Zhang Fei and Guan Yu in the flanks,
and Liu Bei in the rear. Seeing Zhang Bao’s Lord of Earth banner, Liu Bei
charged forward hoping to capture the rebel. Zhang Bao was shot in the arm by
an arrow but was able to escape the area and entered the city of Yangcheng. He
quickly fortified the city and was besieged by Zhu Jun.

The next day, scouts delivered news to Zhu Jun regarding the other rebels.
Zhang Jiao scored many wins over Dong Zhuo’s army, so the latter was to be
replaced by Huangfu Song. However, Zhang Jiao died in battle before Huangfu Song
could take over the post. Zhang Jiao’s forces joined with Zhang Liang at Quyang,
but they were crushed by Cao Cao’s army, and Zhang Liang was also killed in
battle. Zhang Jiao’s coffin was taken by Huangfu Song, the body was beheaded
and sent in a box to the Capital Luo Yang. Hearing this news, Zhu Jun hastened
to attack Yangcheng. Before the battle started, a Yellow Scarves officer named
Yan Zheng, stabbed his leader Zhang Bao to death, beheaded the corpse and placed
it in a box. He surrendered the city and gave Zhang Bao’s head to Zhu Jun.

This meant the end of all Yellow Scarves activity in that region. However three
other rebels, Zhao Hong, Sun Zhong and Han Zhong gathered some thirty thousand
rebels and began to murder, rob and burn, calling themselves the avengers of
Master Jiao. Zhu Jun drove the rebels out of Wancheng castle, then attempted to
head south but were cut of both Imperial Troops under command of Sun Jian,
Lieutenant Governor of Xuzhou.

All three Yellow Scarves generals were killed in the battle. Numerous rebels
were slaughtered. In the north the peasants surrendered to He Jin’s authority
and peace was restored.

5. FAQ


Q. Zhang Jiao? Why him?
A. Because I am a huge fan of the Yellow Turbans. I also love how he looks and
his voice.

Q. You missed something, why don't you have it?
A. If I've missed something, it's an error on my part. E-mail me if you have
something to add.

Q. Does Zhang Jiao have a musou mode?
A. Unfortunately, he doesn't. Maybe when DW6XL rolls around, he'll have one.

Q. Well, are you able to play on his side during the Yellow Turban Rebellion?
A. Again, no. I know, it sucks. I usually use him on Lu Bu's battles, since
that's really the only place I can see him fitting in. Once again, maybe this'll
change once DW6XL comes out.
