It was ordered that Yu Xun be appointed as commander of the Standard-Bearer Guard. Xun was the son of Qi, the deceased vice commissioner of the Jiao-zhi Regional Military Commission. Initially, Qi had been the assistant commander of the Fu-jun Rear Guard. He was subsequently promoted to vice commissioner of the Si-chuan Regional Military Commission. He accompanied the expedition to Jiao-zhi and remained there to handle military commission affairs. He died of illness while there. It was appropriate that Xun inherit a post of assistant guard commander. However, the Emperor, considering that Qi had died abroad, especially ordered that Xun be appointed as a guard commander.
