|“||I, Go Kei will never retreat from the likes of invaders! Even if it costs me my life!||„|
Go Kei was a major antagonist in the historical seinen anime and manga series, Kingdom. He was a Great General famous for his supremely impressive usage of methodical tactics that could devastate and annihilate entire enemy armies and for his status as a vassal of Shin Ryou Kun, the state of Wei's member of the Four Lords of the Warring States.
Introduced as the overarching antagonist of the Keiyou Campaign Arc, Go Kei led his personal army and the Wei armies in an aggressive defensive war against the Qin armies where he meet his end after he bravely fought Duke Hyou in a one-on-one duel.
After his death, his son Go Hou Mei would become his successor and the state of Wei's number one Great General. Years after his death, Go Kei was later reveled to be a previous member of the 1st generation of the Wei Fire Dragons and was one who asked the previous Wei king to spare his colleagues from gruesome deaths.
Go Kei had a warrior's build and large eyes but no eyebrows, his face was tattooed with red stripes running down each one of his eyes. He tied and braided his hair around his neck and also wore a blue cape above his armor and stood as a large man worthy of his title of a Great General. As a child his hair was black before but it turned a pale greyish white due to the trauma of seeing the Zhao ravage his kingdom and murder his entire family in his birth state of Jia.
|“||Ku...Ku...Ku...KUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH!! This is exactly why...I can't ever quit this business. THE BUSINESS OF WAR!!||„|
|~ Go Kei to his soldiers.|
Go Kei was a calm man who plans out his movements before carrying them out, this is shown in how he uses his war chariots to decimate Duke Hyou's charge in order to leave him stranded behind enemy lines. This was a cunning tactic as it used the Qin general's recklessness against him with a pincer formation on both sides of the Qin cavalry. His perception of the battlefield as a board game of logic leads him to mentally maneuver his "pieces" to give him the most suitable tools needed for victory.
However beneath his calm demeanor, Go Kei was a passionate man and valorous Great General capable of leading his troops from the vanguard and held the greatest confident confident in his tactics as he called the reckless Duke Hyou a buffoon for his predictable attack while comparing him to a rampaging bull and showed an excitable side as he laughed at the turn of events shocks his troops as he states it is why he can't quit the business of war. And demonstrated his unmovable pride as his refusal to never retreat from any enemy was so strong that he killed one of his soldiers who suggested he retreat from his duel with Duke Hyou.
