"The Slave Trader" is the fourth chapter of the manga Assassin's Creed: Blade of Shao Jun written by Minoji Kurata.


Macau, China, 1526
Shao Jun stands over the lifeless body of Xiao Hu's father. Vowing vengeance on Yu Dayong, she leaves the room. In another part of the fort, she comes across a few guards taunting a young girl imprisoned in a steel cage. Hiding against the outside window sill, she attracts the guards to the window and dispatches them, before freeing the young girl. The girl informs her that several other slaves are trapped in the keep, and Jun states that she will go find and release them too.

Upon discovering the slaves, she is shocked to discover them all cowering together in the same tiny cell. There are also corpses present, leaving a vile stench. As the slaves leave the cell, guards arrive demanding to know why they have been let out. Jun immediately leaps to their defence, slaying the guards one after another with her sword, until one guard hoists a shield and manages to deflect several of her strikes. He calls to the remaining guards to use their shields as well, and they form a small defensive stance together. Jun elects to leap over them, slicing her blade at their exposed backs as she falls. Finally, she uses her Hidden Footblade to eliminate one guard, and threatens the last remaining guard into revealing Yu Dayong's whereabouts.

On the other side of the fort, Yu Dayong emerges from his quarters, demanding to know whether the Assassin has been killed. When he is informed that they have not, he storms out to demand answers from his guards. The nearest calls out to him, before slumping to the ground. Shao Jun stands over the body, with her sword drawn. Grabbing Dayong, she demands he hand over the Precursor box. He gloats in response that the box is not in the fort, that he knew she was coming, and then grabs a nearby rope, sounding an alarm. Jun stabs him in the liver with her sword, expressing her desire to see him feel but a fraction of the pain he caused both her and all of the slaves. After she makes her escape, Qiu Ju, another member of the Eight Tigers, enters the room. A dying Dayong informs him that the Assassin still remains at large. Ju calls for guards to flush out the Assassin, by lighting the harbour on fire.

As Shao Jun leaps across rooftops, she hopes that the slaves got away safely. In the distance, a bright light stands out in the night sky. The moored ships and buildings of Macau are aflame.
