Xu You (onyomi: Kyo Yū) is a military officer and politician who is historically described to be an invaluable and reliable friend of Yuan Shao and Cao Cao. He loyally followed Yuan Shao during several campaigns. Tired of having his advice being constantly averted, Xu You joined Cao Cao. Though his defection was at first tested, Cao Cao was delighted to have Xu You serve him.
