Mou Ten is a deuteragonist/tritagonist and supporting character in the popular historical seinen manga and anime series, Kingdom. He is a General for the State of Qin's military, leader of the Gaku Ka Army and is a leading figure within the Qin military as he fights to conquer and unify the various enemy states. He is the first-born son of Mou Bu, a Great General of the state Qin and first member of the Six Great Generals, grandson of the late Mou Gou the Hakurou and Great General of the state Qin, nephew to Shou Hei Kun the Chancellor of the Right and Chief of Military Affairs, and Mou Ki's older brother during the Warring States era of ancient B.C. China.
Introduced into the story as the leader of the then Gaku Ka Unit during the Third Faction Arc, Mou Ten quickly showed himself as an incredible and a rival later ally to his colleague Ou Hon and
In the anime series, he is voiced by Hirofumi Nojima.
Mou Ten is often described as looking very feminine with his long bright brown hair, short and slender frame as well as a distinct lack of facial hair, he does however have a small mole on his right cheek. He usually wears a pink robe over his armor even into battle and carries a thin sword with him. As pointed out by Ri Shin, he has virtually no resemblance to his father, Mou Bu. In season 3 of the anime, his hair became a darker shade of brown. At some point before the Koku You Campaign Arc, he began to wear a different robe with fur around his neck as well as golden vambraces as a 5000-man commander and after becoming a general he shortened his hair and added shoulder pads, necklace and a cape to his attire.
Possessing a very friendly and outgoing personality, Mou Ten is always lively and ready to joke about situations. At times, he can seem quite carefree but this conceals a very cunning side of him which shows up whenever things get serious.
He is not above using his father's and grandfather's influence to get what he wants.
Mou Ten cares very much for his family and displays a near-reckless abandon as he attacked Ren Pa when he saw his grandfather injured by the vicious Great General.
