Lady of Valor
Diao Chan, one of the Four Great Beauties of China, was the daughter of Wang Yuan, a loyal minister of the Han emperor. At that time, an evil warlord, Dong, was trying to usurp power. Teamed with his powerful adopted son, Lu Bu, the duo was invincible, and the empire was on the brink of destruction. Diao Chan, seeing her father's distress over the situation, offered her help. Wang immediately betrothed her to Lu, at the same time offering her to Dong as a concubine. Both men fell in love with her, and became intensely jealous of each other. This created a huge rift between the former allies, which enabled Wang to enlist Lu's help in assassinating Dong, thus saving the empire.
People born in the year of the Dog are said to be loyal, courageous, full of honor and valor.
