Discover, in a slightly pleased way, that what makes Three Kingdoms marginally less anxiety-triggering and marginally more readable is six weeks of hanzi study. I may have the wrong Zhuo hanzi for that particular personage-- in fact it's certain I have the wrong Zhuo hanzi for that particular personage-- but at least I have a hanzi I can associate the word Zhuo with. Mr. Filthy (濁) or Mr. Clean (濯) as per choice. This helps immeasurably in keeping people separate, especially when faced with five different Zhangs in the same chapter, only three of whom are brothers.
