He then plotted against Lin Chong and tricked Lin Chong into the forbidden military conference room. For that reason, Lin Chong was tattooed on the face and banished to Cang Zhou and was almost killed by the escorts on the way. Fortunately, he was saved by Lu Zhishen.

Yang Zhi was extremely cautious, but still was robbed of the tribute by Chao Gai and a few others. Yang Zhi was so helpless he went to Erlong Mountain; he met Lu Zhishen on the way.

To avenge his brother, Wu Song killed the murderers Pan Jinlian and Ximen Qing and therefore was tattooed on the face and banished to Mengzhou.

When visiting his friend Hua Rong, Song Jiang was framed and therefore decided to go to Liangshan leading the forces of Qingfeng Mountain. However, having fallen for a trick played by his father, he went home and was punished by the royal court with a facial tattoo and banishment to Jiangzhou. One day when he was drunk, Song Jiang wrote a “rebellious” poem, which was taken advantage of by Huang Wenbing and for which he was given the death penalty. Thanks to Chao Gai and the group he led, Song Jiang was rescued and went to Liangshan. After Chao Gai died, Song Jiang set his mind on being recruited by the government.
