The rank Local Leader was a rank among the Yellow Turbans. It seems very likely that a Local Leader, was in fact the same as a Gang Leader.


A Gang Leader (渠帥; qú shuài) was a Yellow Turban who was in charge of a selection of troops of a Division Leader.[3] According to Wiktionary the archaic meaning of '渠帥' is:

"leader of the local chapter of a bandit gang.".

From this sentence it's looks probable that a Gang Leader (or Bandit Leader) is the same as a Local Leader.
