Sun Tze was born in China, in the Kingdom of Qi, during the period of the Warrior Kingdoms (476-221 BC). A soldier and a politician, he served the Wu Kingdom, which he helped reach pre-eminence during this period in Chinese history. Sun Tze is famous for his influential treaty on military strategy “Sun Tzu. The Art of War”. The Project “Advisor” was Yu Jing’s answer to Project “Orleans Maiden”. Yu Jing’s High Command requested ALEPH recreate a military strategist, a less notorious persona that functioned as a power behind the throne, creating victories without receiving too much publicity. The character of Sun Tze seemed the most appropriate, as much for his qualities as for his cultural affinity. The recreation of his personality was completed with a military background from Yu Jing schools of strategy, preparing him for modern warfare. Sun Tze is a natural born strategist, with an extraordinary vision of the future. His intense military talent is reflected in all his decisions. He possesses a sharp computer mind with which he can imagine and devise hundreds of plans and contingencies in an instant, which makes him a vital element in any operation. He is an experienced soldier and has great perspicacity and all the leadership qualities that could be required. He possesses a solid temperament, with the calmness and sardonic arrogance proper of a veteran officer combined with the tranquillity and security of one who knows many secrets, but his attitude reveals all the vigour of a general.

As one of the greatest strategists in the Human Sphere, Sun Tze knows that a primary quality of a good leader is to be able to manage his tactical positioning. The officer in charge has to be at a distance that provides a clear vision of the battle, complementing the information he gets through tactical and strategic channels. The optimal distance is that which provides such a view but does not put the officer at unnecessary risk. However, it must allow him to remain close to his men and participate in combat, both vital elements in keeping up the morale and confidence of his troops. The “Marksman Leader” equipment has been specifically designed to take advantage of the excellent tactical qualities of Sun Tze’s advanced Lhost. This equipment provides him with the ability to shoot his enemies at a very long distance. As Marksman Leader, Sun Tze can stand in a commanding position from which he supports his troops by clearing a safe path free of threats with the serenity and methodical precision characteristic of this legendary strategist.

This Recreation, called Sun Tze, is a born strategist with extraordinary foresight. His acute military talent shines through his every decision. With his sharp, computerized mind he can envision and project hundreds of plans and contingencies in an instant, making him a vital element of any operation he takes part in. An accomplished, perspicacious military leader, he radiates command and everyone else falls into line. Physically, Sun Tze is tall, and his cold eyes are embedded in a stony face, pallid and detached as death itself. He has a solid temperament: the calmness and mocking arrogance of a veteran officer, compounded by the composure and confidence of one who knows many secrets. He always speaks softly, deliberately, with small expressive gestures. He conducts himself haughtily, and the tunic he wears over his armor gives him the grave manner of a priest, but his actions reveal the vigor of a general. He is often harsh in his dealings with others, but he broaches every subject with such intelligence, assertiveness and tact, that it seems only natural he would be successful in all his endeavors.

Sun Tze proved his worth during the NeoColonial Wars and the Ariadnan Commercial Conflicts. He was responsible for the Lièqŭ Action and the successful Dàjiě Operation that halted and trapped the vanguard of the PanOceanian forces on Paradiso. These military operations served to cement his prestige within the StateEmpire Army.

Both the soldiery and the officers consider Sun Tze a bold man, capable of putting into practice what others dare not even think. His popularity could be perceived as a threat by the chiefs, but Sun Tze has never given them a reason to suspect nonconformism or rebelliousness. On the contrary, he is considered an example of loyalty to the Yu Jing StateEmpire.


"The strength of their plan lay in its audacity. Who would be so bold as to launch a frontal attack against a fortified contingent holding an advantageous position? The answer is obvious: the Japanese. Any one of my officers could have told you as much. But, in their arrogance and blindness to the fanatic bravery of Japanese troops, the Imperial Service commanders have allowed themselves to be caught off-guard, and now the Chisaka settlement is lost to us."
-Sun Tze, during a meeting with the StateEmpire High Command to assess the Kaseitoshi front. Strategic Planning Center, Cheng Tù city, Yutang.

“The Demilitarized Island of Flamia, a strategic position on Paradiso. Custodied by O-12, coveted by all powers, the threat of a Combined Army offensive may be the excuse everybody has been waiting for to deploy their troops and take control of it.”
-Sun Tze,breifing with High Command, Paradiso.

"Now you want to make it right? It is a little too late to write it off as a misunderstanding... As I recall, Haqqislamites tend to lose their sense of humor when they see civilians die."
Sun Tze to the Yu Jing Embassay at the start of the NeoColonial Wars.

"We are trapped in an internal war against a relentless adversary. Moreover, the power of the Yu Jing leadership has won us many enemies throughout the Sphere, enemies who are now seizing the opportunity to support the Japanese secessionists and thus bleed the StateEmpire. PanOceania, the Nomads, Haqgislam... This Uprising has turned formerly divided opponents into strange allies. It is natural to believe that we should deploy all our power and crush those opportunists. But we have entire territories that are in open revolt against our domain, and we will not be able to simultaneously bear the debt of two wars, one internal and the other external. We must confine the external confrontation to the dialectical and political aspect, and focus on regaining territorial control of the insurrectionist regions."
-Sun Tze. Joint consultative meetings between the Presidency and the StateEmpire High Command. Tian Di Jing. Yutang.
