Ma Chao is a historical Chinese general that served under Zhang Lu and later Liu Bei. He is the son of Ma Teng, a lord in the Liang Province, who was executed after their rebellion against Cao Cao. Due to this, he had a profound hate for him. Ma Chao was not impressed with Zhang Lu since he could not be ambitious enough to make a name for himself. When Liu Bei besieged Chengdu, Ma Chao surrendered to him in secrecy by writing a letter to him. Since his meeting with Liu Bei, his quest for vegeance dissipated as he found new purpose in unity. He appears in sources such as Luo Guanzong's popular novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Koei's Dynasty Warriors. In battle, he is skilled and his weapon of choice varies in each title, some examples include various swords and lances. Ma Chao believes in justice and heroics as a virtue and sometimes can be selfish and inconsiderate of others when it comes to personal gain, glory, and his ambitions.
