Liu Yin was from Chengdu, the capital of Yi Province covering present-day Sichuan and Chongqing. While he was still a young man, Liu Yins name became famous along with those of Du Zhen and Liu Shen who were of the same commandary as him. He was known as forthright, sincere and bright.

He was a regular follower of the Grand General Jiang Wei during his many northern campaigns.

His valour and cleverness made him popular in the army and a champion among the soldiers. Later on, he was nominated as General of the Standard, Administrator of Ba commandary and Cavalry Commandant.
