Characters are complex. They have different personalities, different drives and motivations, and build relationships – both positive and negative – with those around them. You must attend to their needs in order to keep them loyal, and shield them from situations which will dissatisfy or endanger them.
Characters in Three Kingdoms touch every part of the campaign game. They are the generals of your armies, inhabit key posts in your faction hierarchy, boost productivity in your commanderies, engage in espionage on your behalf, and grant benefits to every aspect of your game, both on the campaign map and in battle.

As characters fight battles as generals, or work as administrators or assignments (and to a lesser degree hold ministerial positions), they gain personal experience and advance through character levels. A character who levels up gains skill points that the player can spend on new skills which can boost a character’s core attributes, unlock new skills and grant new bonuses in both battle and campaign.
Faction leaders are granted a small amount of bonus experience when characters in their faction level up.
in Romance Mode, characters who hit achieve rank 4 gain a bonus wound, improving their resilience.
The military tab in the character panel details key units the selected character is capable of recruiting, the current status and active effects on units in their retinue (replenishing, attrition etc), and any abilities they have in battle.
