Hu Chi'er

Huchi'er was a general serving under Niu Fu during the Han Dynasty era of Chinese history. He was not of Chinese origin, and some historians believe he may have come from a Slavic background, although others assert it is much more probable that he was of Magyar, Hun or Persian ancestry.

When Li Jue and Guo Si revolted to fight against Lü Bu, Niu Fu, his master, sided with Li and Guo. He brings his master a plan: "Lü Bu is too doughty a fighter for us to hope to overcome him. Our case is hopeless. Our best course is to desert these four generals (Li Jue, Guo Si, Fan Chou, Zhang Ji), secrete their valuables, and leave the army with just a few of our followers".

His plan was adopted, and Niu Fu with his men and some others that late night packed up and make their way out of camp. With half a dozen of men, they came to a river and, while crossing, Huchi'er, templed by the lust of wealth, slew his master. The he went to offer the head of Niu Fu to Lü Bu. Lü Bu inquired into the matter, and when a follower told him the truth about slaying Niu Fu of Huchi'er, he put the traitor Huchi'er to death.

His name is easily confused to Huche'er. Some facts offers they are blood-related.
