One day, Liu Biao paid a visit to Kuai Liang and Kuai Yue, asking, "At present, bandits are rampant and the people are not loyal to the government, while Yuan Shu of Nanyang is planning his moves, it's hard to restore order to the current chaotic situation. I intend to recruit soldiers from among the civilian population, but I'm worried that they might not wish to join the army. Do you have any ideas to solve this problem?" Kuai Liang replied, "The reason why the people are not loyal to the government is that officials do not show enough care and concern towards them. If the people are loyal to the government, and yet the government is still weak, that's because officials do not perform sufficient righteous deeds. If officials can govern by benevolence and justice, the people's loyalty to them will be like the flow of water from higher to lower ground. Why do you need to worry and ask for a plan to conscript civilians?"
After the battles against Sun Jian and Cao Cao, Liu Biao appointed Kuai Liang his registrar. Kuai Liang died in 208 after the Battle of Jiang Xia.
