17 years old Sun Jian of Wu, was very couragous since he was young, one day in Wu when there were many bandits on the river bank, everyone was afraid to go to shore, but the young Sun Jian was very couragous and he went to shore first and started directing his soldiers to surround the bandits. The bandits saw his courage and were startled and afraid that they would be captured, therefore the bandits fled. Sun Jian saw this and immediately gave chase and he was able to caught one of the bandits and beheaded him on the street with his broad sword in his hand. He was noticed by the authority and was give an official title so that he can look after the river banks/sides and remove any further bandits.
After the Guan Tong’s alliance against Dong Zhou, only Cao Cao and Sun Jian went to attack Dong Zhuo (After several meetings among the joint forced warlords). And Sun Jian was the actual warrior who killed Dong Zhuo’s famous Hua Xiong and not Guan Yu. Yuan Shu found that Sun Jian was too couragous, too strong and therefore Yuan Shu got his men to withhold Sun Jian’s war rations, Yuan Shu being a political and back stabber held meetings with other warlords to belittle Sun Jian’s power in all sorts of ways/means.
Even Dong Zhuo was afraid of Sun Jian’s courage, might and power and send secret messenger to Sun Jian to ask to be his alliance. But was fiercely rejected by Sun Jian. Sun Jian was therefore at in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms time/period a well known hero during the chaotic period.
