Zhōu Tài 周泰

Translated description:
"Body Scarred like a Battle Record 历战之躯 (lì zhàn zhī qū)"

Who is he:
If there was a commando spirit in any of the Three Kingdoms characters, it would be Zhou Tai. If I had my way, I would rewrite his description as "Never say die". He began his military career as a pirate-convert under Sun Ce 孙策, but Sun Quan 孙权 quickly took a liking and requested Zhou Tai be transfered over to his command. It was from then on that Zhou Tai would save Sun Quan's ass many times from certain death. In one significant scenario in the story, Sun Quan asked Zhou Tai to remove his clothing during a banquet and show his battle scars for all those present. Zhou Tai remembers the battle behind every scar, most of which he earned valiantly serving the cause of the Sun Quan's Wu Kingdom. It is thus that Sun Quan treats Zhou Tai as one of his most trusted and capable generals, as kin as a brother to him.

Character ability: "Refuting Death 不屈 (bù qū)"
Whenever your health is reduced by 1 unit while your current unit of health is 0, you can reveal a card from the top of the deck and place it onto your character card. As long as none of these cards have the same number (Ace thru King) displayed, you do not die. If a card is revealed with the same point as another existing card, you enter the Brink of Death.

Synergistic Partners:
Sun Quan (Lord)

Difference from Normal SanGuoSha:
Nil.

Ability's Relation to Story:
His ability "Refuting Death" is a wonderful match from the story! Many times Zhou Tai risked life and limb to save Sun Quan, each time getting injured and cut up but he survives! This ability is a tribute to the Zhou Tai that "never says die".
