Sūn Fǔ appellation Guóyí was [Sūn] Bēn’s younger brother. As Colonel Raising Martial Ability he assisted Sūn Cè in pacifying three commanderies. [Sūn] Cè attacked the seven counties of Dānyáng, and sent [Sūn] Fǔ west to garrison Lìyáng to resist Yuán Shù and also invite and recruit more people, and he assembled and united many who were scattered. He also followed Cè in attacking Língyáng, and captured Zǔ Láng and others alive. (1)
- (1) Jiāngbiǎozhuàn states: Cè had pacified the east of the Jiāng, and pursued Yuán Yìn. Yuán Shù deeply resented Cè, and therefore secretly sent messengers to present seals and ribbons to the Dānyáng clan leader Zǔ Láng of Língyáng and others, to send them to stir up the mountain Yuè peoples and raise a great army, planning to together attack Cè. Cè personally led officers and soldiers to attack [Zǔ] Láng and captured him alive. Cè said to Láng: “You in the past attacked me, and cut my saddle. Now I lead the army to establish great work, forget and abandon old enmities, and only seek to employ the able, from any in the realm Under Heaven and that is all, not only you. You have nothing to fear.” Láng bowed his head to the ground and apologized for his faults, and at once his bounds were broken, he was bestowed clothes and installed as Official Below the Gates. When the army returned, [Zǔ] Láng with Tàishǐ Cí were both at the front guiding the army, and men noticed their honor.
Cè went west to attack Administrator of Lújiāng Liú Xūn, and Fǔ accompanied, personally leading at the front of the troops, and had achievement. Cè established Fǔ as Administrator of Lúlíng, calmed and settled its cities, and was separately installed as Chief Clerk. He was promoted to General Pacifying the South, with Acting Staff of Authority and office as Inspector of Jiāozhōu. He sent an envoy to with Excellency Cáo exchange information, the matter was discovered, and [Sūn] Quán placed him under house arrest. (2)
- (2) Diǎnlüè states: Fǔ feared Quán could not defend and maintain the east of the Jiāng, and therefore when Quán traveled to Dōngyě he then sent someone to bring a letter to call on Excellency Cáo, but someone discovered and reported this. Quán therefore returned, acted as if he did not know, and with Zhāng Zhāo together met with Fǔ. Quán said to Fǔ: “Elder brother if something is troubling you, why call on an outsider?” Fǔ said there was no matter. Quán therefore gave the letter to Zhāo, and Zhāo showed it to Fǔ. Fǔ in shame had no answer. Therefore they beheaded all of Fǔ’s closest attendants, divided up his retainers, and moved Fǔ and placed him east.
After several years he died. His sons Xīng, Zhāo, Wěi, and Xīn all held office.
