Chang Wu has wavy cheek lines, which match his wavy and thin eyebrows and mustache. His eyes are narrow, as is his mouth. He has little hair, which hangs behind his head in a pony tail. He wears a vampire-like cape that is entirely black and wears ornamental red garments. These garments are decorated with a gold necklace, an emblem of his army, and a white collar.
Chang Wu is an insane man who believes that he is the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huangdi, reincarnated. While his wicked and domineering personality is already a concern, he is still able to sway a large rebel army to his side in order to take the city of Xi'an. Only General Mao Zedong III is brave enough to defy his reign.
