The year is 202 BC. Dwelling in rural China is a flourishing tribe derived from the Manchu. They're a self sufficient community that focus their efforts on farming and martial arts and traditions. They are led by a man named Delun. He is a wise man with a great devotion to his people. Over the past few years Delun had led his tribe through the unification of Middle China and into the Han Dynasty with reasonable success. But now he feared for their future.

Though the tribe had remained relatively unaffected for the remainder of Emperor Ziying's reign and the last of the Qin Dynasty, China was now beginning to develop, making hugeadvances in the arts but in particular in the sciences. The Han Dynasty had begun to push China into a new modern era and Delun feared that the modernisation arriving in China would force his people to abandon their ways and traditions and in so doing lose what was a harmonious and easy way of life, but more seriously given the news that he had received of late, he feared that the new Han Emperor would attack and wipe out his people in order to make his advances and extend his borders.

She raised the glass and then put it to her lips. She drank the entire glass in one gulp and continued to dance. A very short time after that Jiao's dancing began to flow oddly. She seemed disorientated and Wu began to feel threatened by her movement. Suspecting she had found out about his military decision, Wu took his sword and lunged at Jiao. But he was too late. He realised quickly that what lay attached to the end of his sword was already dead. Wu took her glass smelling the arsenic and realised it had been meant for him. Wu couldn't help tears rolling down his cheeks, both in relief and sadness,
