Xiahou Dun

In the Romance of Three Kingdoms, Xiahou Dun (pronouced shee-a hoe dwin) was one of Lord Cao Cao's best bodyguards (Cao Cao was the ruler of the Wei Kingdom). He was also Cao Cao's cousin.

Xiahou Dun was a very fast attacker amd could never be caught off-guard with his mighty sword Schalmiter as a weapon.

Xiahou Dun wears an eye patch because when he was fighting at the battle of Huo Loa Gate he was shot in the eye with an arrow from the bow of Lu Bu (the best warrior ever). Xiahou Dun pulled the arrow from his eye, plucked his eye off of the end of it and ate it!
