Cai Mao is a character in the Total War: Three Kingdoms grand campaign.

Historical Background

From Xiangyang, Nan Commandery, Jing Province, Cai Mao was the brother in law of Liu Biao through his second wife, Lady Cai. He was also the brother in law of one Huang Chengyan, whose daughter Huang Yueying married Zhuge Liang. He was evidently serving under the former brother in law during Dong Zhuo's coup and was likewise sent to Jing to help Liu Biao secure the province. He was made administrator of various commanderies within the province during their stay there and became Liu Biao's primary advisor after the latter was promoted to General who Guards the South.

When Liu Biao grew ill, Cai Mao ran interference with his older son, Liu Qi, so that his younger son, Liu Cong, could succeed him. Cai Mao was connected to Liu Cong through marriage, possibly being his father in law, so he had a very obvious motivation. However, Cao Cao soon demanded the surrender of Jing Province. Being one of Cao Cao's old friends, Cai Mao helped persuade Liu Cong to capitulate and joined him in leaving for the capitol. He was made a Changshui Colonel and enoffed as a marquis, often being visited by Cao Cao himself, and presumably lived in comfort thereafter.

Start Location

Cai Mao starts as the faction leader of his own faction, in Jiangling Commandery. He is a vassal of The Liu Clan of Xiangyang.
