“Fearless, loyal, and disciplined. China's most honorable and noble soldiers.” ―Mulan and Shang describing the trio.
Yao, Ling and Chien Po are a trio of soldiers met in Jaden's Adventures of Mulan. While Mulan was diguising herself as Ping, they didn't like her that often and bullied her often, but after finishing training, they became friends. By working together, they fought bravely against Shan Yu anthe Huns and saved the Emperor.
During training, Yao talks back to Li Shang, and as a result is picked out as the first to try to retrieve the arrow, deliberately humiliated in front of the other recruits, making him the most aggressive of the bunch. This aspect is furthered by the fact that Yao is constantly seen fighting with others, and his temper is usually the cause of it. Even so, his great strength proves to be beyond impressive, leading to him coming out of his constant scuffles victorious.
When Yao is about to fight Mulan when they first met, po succesfully calms him down with a relaxing chant, but this did not last long because Mushu insulted Yao when he is about to leave Mulan alone. After the camp turns on 'Ping', Chien-Po is the only one of the trio to not try to make life difficult for Mulan, although at no point during the sequence does he show her any support.
He is something of a weakling physically, as he knocks himself out during a block breaking task in training (in his lyric of the montage song, he admits its because he used to "cut gym" during the school-hours of his childhood, and as of that moment, he felt like a fool for it). He does grow more capable though, as near the end, he is able to use the move to incapacitate one of the Huns.
- Chien-Po (voiced by Jerry Tondo) is the largest, in both height and size, of the trio. However, he is also very gentle, and seems to care a great deal about food. He wears a blue uniform. Some of his character appears to have been taken from Buddhist imagery. At times, he seems to demonstrate super-human strength.
