The story starts with two characters, Xin and Piao, who are orphans. Both have always dreamed of becoming a Great General. Piao and Xin are both training hard to make their dreams come true. But one day, Piao was taken from Xin, and he came back after months in such a brutal condition. Before Piao died, he told Xin that he had to go to Kokuhi Village. In order to find out what happened to Piao, he started his journey to Kokuhi Village. In the village, she saw Yin Zheng.
She suddenly realized that she and Yin Zheng looked alike. Then he learned that royalty had replaced Piao with Yin Zheng. Piao acted as bait. General Ou Ki’s army attacks Piao and leaves him badly injured when they think that he is the king. Xin couldn’t control her anger at first. But when Xin and Yin Zheng approached, Yin Zheng told Xin that he wanted to end all kinds of wars and unite all kingdoms. Hearing this, Xin tried to help Yin, so that the two of them could achieve their goal and end the bloodshed.
The story then continues how Xin tries hard to become a Great General one day. Further in the story, Xin also became a general of Qin. Then Hi Shin’s army was also formed by him.
