Who is Han Yin?

Han Yin was an advisor to the warlord Yuan Shu during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. He appeared in both Chen Shou's historical document Records of Three Kingdoms and Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

After Yuan Shu's general Ji Ling presented the proposal of marriage between Yuan Shu's son Yuan Yao and Lü Bu's daughter with the intention of keeping her hostage and taking control of Lü's forces, Han was sent as an agent for Yuan to persuade Lü. However it was interfered with by Chen Gui and Chen Deng, who had secretly sided with Liu Bei and Cao Cao. Lü was told of the ruse and immediately imprisoned Han. When Lü Bu killed a second emissary sent by Yuan Shu, Han was sent to Xuchang and executed by Cao Cao.
