Historical InformationEdit

Sun Yi was born in Fuchun, Wu District. While Sun Ce led troops to avenge their father's death in 192, Sun Yi was left behind to attend to internal affairs. He was reputed as a brave yet arrogant youth. According to the Dianlue, he was known for his martial arts skill and fiery personality which nearly matched Sun Ce. When Sun Ce was dying in 200, Zhang Zhao and Zhu Zhi pressed for him to chose Sun Yi as his successor. The issue was dropped when Sun Ce favored Sun Quan.

When his uncle, Wu Jing, suddenly died in 203, Sun Yi was appointed Administrator of Dangyang at twenty years old. Sun Yi tried to appoint Sheng Xian's former generals into the administration. Gai Lan and Dai Yuan conspired to rebel and colluded with another general, Bian Hong, to accomplish their goal. When Sun Quan was away on a campaign, Sun Yi sought to hold a meeting between the chiefs of the land. Before leaving his home, his wife warned him not to go. He went with a sword to defend himself. While drunk and unarmed, Sun Yi was murdered from behind by Bian Hong. His wife later made arrangements to avenge him.
