Role in GamesEdit

Li Shi is a secret character in the eleventh Romance of the Three Kingdoms game. Like most female officers, her stats trend more towards intellect, politics, and charisma. If assigned in an army, she will allow the troops to recover after an enemy tactic.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

The novel introduces Lady Li in Chapter 117. Filled with concern regarding the state of Shu, she reprimanded her spouse for his complacency in protecting Jiangyou, "You call yourself a man! Have you such a disloyal and treacherous heart? Is it nothing to have held office and taken pay for years? How can I bear to look upon your face?". Ma Miao was rendered speechless by her harsh scolding.

In response to Deng Ai and his troops forcing Ma Miao to surrender, Lady Li hanged herself. Upon learning her reasons for doing so, Deng Ai commended Lady Li's fealty and personally arranged her funeral. A poem was made to praise her honorable conduct.

When the Ruler of Shu had wandered from the way,
And the House of Han fell lower,
Heaven sent Deng Ai to smite the land.
Then did a woman show herself most noble,
So noble in conduct,
That no leader equaled her.
