Historical InformationEdit

Cheng Yin was a general controlling parts of Guanzhong. He was born in Hedong prefecture (河東) of Sidi commandery (司隷). When Cao Cao invaded Guanzhong, Cheng Yin joined a coalition resisting Cao Cao with Ma Chao, Han Sui, and others. However, the coalition was defeated in the Battle of Tong Pass and he fled with Hou Xuan to seek refuge under Zhang Lu in Hanzhong. When Zhang Lu surrendered to Cao Cao, Cheng Yin followed.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

In the novel, he was one of the Eight Riders of Han Sui. Together with Ma Chao's army, he forced the surrender of Chang'an. He later fought against Cao Cao at Weinan, but he and his companion, Zhang Heng, were declared missing after the battle's conclusion, presumably having died in battle.
