Diao Chan is a character that was introduced in the first Chaos of the Three Kingdoms game. She is a young dancer who fell in love with Lu Bu and encouraged him to kill his liege Dong Zhuo.


Diao Chan is depicted as a beautiful young dancer who grows sympathetic towards Lu Bu while he's going through his ordeal of fighting under Dong Zhuo's name. She one day encouraged Lu Bu to turn against his lord which led the unruly tyrant to be killed. After the damage has been done, Diao Chan along with Lu Bu escape from Chang An and decided to fight side by side with him against the forces of Dark Lord Cao Cao.

Historical InformationEdit

In folk tales[edit]

In one folk tale, Diaochan was captured by Cao Cao after the Battle of Xiapi. Cao Cao presented her to Guan Yu in the hope of winning Guan's loyalty towards him. Guan Yu suspected that he was being tricked when he recalled how Diaochan had betrayed Lü Bu and Dong Zhuo earlier. He killed her to prevent her from doing further harm.[citation needed] In another tale, Liu Bei, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei all wanted to marry Diaochan and they argued bitterly over the issue. Guan Yu killed her to end the dispute.[citation needed]

In the Yuan dynasty play Lianhuan Ji (連環計), Diaochan is said to be the daughter of Ren Ang (任昂), and her real name is Ren Hongchang (任紅昌). She is in charge of taking care of the Sable Cicada Hat (貂蟬冠) so she becomes known as "Diaochan" (lit. "sable cicada"). She is introduced to Guan Yu by Zhang Fei after Lü Bu's death. Instead of accepting her as the spoils of war, Guan Yu decapitates her with his sword. This event is not mentioned in historical records or Romance of the Three Kingdoms, but is propagated through mass media such as operas and storytelling.[2]
