Historical InformationEdit

Born in Chenliu, Wu Yi and his younger sister Lady Wu lost their parents at a young age. They were taken in by Liu Yan who had been made governor of Yi Province at the time. When their adopted guardian passed away, his son Liu Zhang succeeded him and made Wu Yi one of his generals. Wu Yi for his part served him loyally until he suffered defeat at the hands of Liu Bei. His subsequent defection encouraged many of his former comrades to follow suit, eventually resulting in Liu Zhang's surrender.

Now affiliated with Shu, he was appointed as inspector of Yong Province while his sister married their lord and became an empress. After being made a marshal in Guanzhong, he and Wei Yan were considered viable choices for leading the invasion against Wei. Zhuge Liang, however, went against the counsel of his peers and chose Ma Su whose defeat at Jieting spelled disaster for their entire campaign.

In 230, Wu Yi joined Wei Yan's rear attack against Cao Zhen, helping defeat Guo Huai and Fei Yao. Not only did he receive a greater position for contributing to the battle, he even succeeded Wei Yan as governor of Hanzhong after the latter's rebellion and Zhuge Liang's death. He eventually died in 237 without leaving any heirs.

Romance of the Three KingdomsEdit

The novel introduces Wu Yi in chapter 62 where he volunteers to defend Luo Castle from Liu Bei alongside Wu Lan and Lei Tong. Subdued by Zhao Yun, he willingly surrenders to his captors and warns them about Zhang Ren. During the Northern Campaign, Zhuge Liang entrusts him to cut off Wei's retreat together with Hu Ban.
