Ryofui aimed to be the top merchant until he met King Soujyo in Zhao. He invested his entire wealth on him and even presented the Queen Mother to him to help King Soujyo ascend the throne successfully. He was then appointed as the Right minister(右丞相). His influence remained strong after the death of King Soujyo and had a power struggle with the king’s faction.

The Queen Mother and Rao Ai founded the state of Ai while those under Ryofui waits. As the rebel army from the state of Ai invades the capital, Ryofui’s men will kill the royal family and Ryofui can become king himself.
