General Ou Ki made the decision that it was necessary to organize a special small strike force for special tasks, reminiscent of Shou Bun Kun's way of warfare in the past. He therefore placed this role on Shin's shoulders and named his unit the Hi Shin unit. The first task given to them by Ou Ki was to kill the Zhao general Fuu Ki.
The Qin left army lead by Kan Ou numbered only half the numbers of the Zhao right army lead by Fuu Ki, allowing him to encircle the Kan Ou's forces and massacre the Qin soldiers. This meant that the Hi Shin unit had to accomplish their task quickly or else risking the annihilation of the Qin left army. Because Fuu Ki used his superior numbers to encircle Kan Ou's forces, his HQ's defenses were decreased considerably. The Hi Shin unit approached Fuu Ki's HQ as close as they could by moving in the ditch behind a stroke of forest that separated the center and left battle fields. When they reached the end of this forest stroke, they used a surprise assault to penetrate the Zhao defenses and reach Fuu Ki's HQ. As the Hi Shin unit fought its way through enemy ranks, they had to split of their force as the pace began to slow down because of exhaustion of the soldiers. But when they finally reached Fuu Ki, he decided to do a tactical retreat, only to be halted by a trick of Ou Ki, who had a few people hold flags in the forest behind Fuu Ki's army. Shin took this opportunity to kill Fuu Ki.
The Hi Shin unit spends the next two days with Kan Ou's army on the sidelines, waiting for their next task.
One year after the Zhao war and general Ou Ki's death. The Hi Shin unit is found on the front lines, on the border between Qin and Wei. Thanks to their accomplishments in the Zhao war, they were bolstered to 300 men strong, they remained an independent unit that did not belong to any specific army, and would tour the battlefields as reinforcements. There was not a single foe strong enough to pose a challenge to the veterans of the Zhao war and this allowed them to rack up victory after victory. As the Hi Shin unit continued their undefeated streak, they became both a symbol of dependability for their allies while at the same time, a target of caution for their enemies. In other words the name of the Hi Shin unit without a doubt, begun to resound throughout the front lines. The Hi Shin unit then meet a special 300-man units, the Gaku Ka unit under the command of Ou Hon. Because the Hi Shin unit were a infantry unit, they were mocked by the Gyoku Hou unit. It then became a race between those two to get the most achievements. While the Hi Shin unit lacked the elite training the Gyoku Hou unit had, the Hi Shin unit began to use strange tactics to gain the upper hand.
After months on the front lines the Hi Shin unit was place in the centre army reserves along with the Gyoku Hou and Gaku Ka units.After Shin talk with Mou Gou, the Hi Shin unit was able to achieve the rank of 1000-Man unit, and keep it only if they kill either one general or three 1000-Man Commanders. They were able to kill general Rin Ko of Ren Pa's Four Heavenly Kings.
On the first day, Shin saves duke Hyou's rear army from an ambush and uses it to attack and killed the Zhao general Man Goku. After witnessing Shin awakening as an instinctual general and being able to command and save most of Duke Hyou's soldiers, he gave Shin 300 men to make up for the ones he lost, and two units of 500 men, to do with them as he sees fit. This made that Hi Shin unit a 2,000 man squad and Shin temporarily a 2,000 man commander.
Battle of SaiEdit
The Hi Shin unit was posted on the south wall and managed to hold out until the mountain tribe managed to break throught the attacker. As soon, as the threat was over, Shin took a few of his men of his unit and headed down, in order to fight Hou Ken, who was still handycapted from the duke Hyou breaking his left arm. He did not only manage to defend against him, but also blew away his glaive in a strength contest, and injured him.
Coalition Invasion AftermathEdit
Shin was promoted to a 3,000 man commander, making the Hi Shin unit a 3,000 man unit. The new units were all the former duke Hyou soldiers. The new Hi Shin unit went towards the region of Kaisou, however it was not for the sake of making war. Because of the fierce attacks of the Coalition army, alot of regions were destroyed completely and had no defense, making it easy for the enemy soldiers to attack. The Hi Shin unit's task was to defend Kaisou region, and help in the restoration, for which they split in 2 groups - Restoration and Security. The security team was made of Shin, ex Kaku Bi units and 500 duke Hyou Soldiers. The Restoration team was led by Bi Hei and the rest of the soldiers of the unit participated in rebuilding everything as well.
With general Heki’s suppression force trapped in a pincer between the joint Zhao and rebel armies, the Hi Shin unit slid in alongside Heki’s right flank to take the entire Zhao army of 10,000 for themselves. Composed of both Shin's 4,000 and Kyou Kai's 1,000 men, the 5,000 strong unit was superior in both the martial and strategic strength of its leaders, with Shin displaying his aptitude with a glaive, and on top of her usual otherworldy swordplay, Kyou Kai's deployment of a new tactic called "Herculean Strength", in which 10 men brace their shields together to become an immovable wall that can defend against anything. Their actions crushed the Zhao army advance, and in effect removed the pressure on Heki's right flank, allowing him to focus on the rebel army.
