Bore an uncanny resemblance to Guan Yu - simply because he was a direct descendant of the famous general of the Shu Kingdom. Brandishing a halberd, majestic in appearance and skilful in the art of war, it is little wonder that Song Jiang was eager to have the imperial general on board. Flanked by his aides Xuan Zan and Hao Si-Wen, Guan Sheng was fearless in making a frontal assault on Liangshan (this was known as the second imperial attack) but as it were, he was ambushed eventually although he did succeed in capturing a few of Song's followers. Perhaps, just like his more famous ancestor, pride was to be his undoing when he fell into the trap laid by his opponents. Nonetheless, he became a vital member in the Liangshan contingent. Standing at about 8 feet 5-6 inches, Guan had a long beard, long brows and eyes like those of a phoenix.
