Liu Cong is a character in the Total War: Three Kingdoms grand campaign.
The younger son of Liu Biao, he was favored by his father due to resembling him and by the influential family of his stepmother, Lady Cai, by marrying her niece. When Liu Biao grew ill, his in-laws in the Cai family ran interference to prevent his older son, Liu Qi, from seeing him and interfering with the succession. Upon his father's subsequent death in 208AD, Liu Cong became Governor of Jing without significant protest.
However, a month later, Cao Cao demanded that Jing Province surrender to him. Liu Cong's advisors (whom he inherited from his father) urged him to comply, and after some persuasion, he did. He specifically did not inform his brother or Liu Bei, who was stationed in Nanyang, preparing for battle. By the time either of them heard, he had already handed over his seal to Cao Cao at Xiangyang. He was made a Marquis and the inspector of Qing Province, eventually becoming an imperial counselor and presumably living the rest of his life in luxury in the capitol.
