Ji Shao， an aide to Emperor Jin Hui during the Jin Dynasty， was handsome and talented.
Once， when his country was being invaded， he accompanied Emperor Jin Hui in defending the country， but， unfortunately， they lost the war. Most of the soldiers died or deserted， but Ji Shao stayed with the emperor to protect him.
Upon seeing this， the people were moved and said：“Ji Shao stand out like a camel amongst a group of sheep， preeminent and superior.”
This idiom is currently used to describe prominent people with good looks and impressive abilities among a crowd.
