Suo Chao stood at 7 feet, with a round face and big ears, a squarish mouth and a face covered by his beard. He gives people an impressive bearing, much like a hero. He was originally a general in Damingfu, serving under General Secretary Liang. Every time Suo Chao went into battle, he was the first to charge at the enemy, hence he got the nickname 'Daring Vanguard' (急先锋). He was armed with a huge and long golden axe, much like the one carried by Xu Huang from the Three Kingdoms period.
