Lan (Chinese: 岚姐 Lán Jiě) is an NPC in Liyue Harbor. She is the Branch Master of the Adventurers' Guild in Liyue and can be found standing next to Katheryne's reception area. Despite being the branch master, she is actually illiterate and uninterested in the Guild affairs, which she leaves to Katheryne.
Her older brother, a martial artist, died in unknown circumstances. Ever since then, she has been looking for his sword which is known as the Unseen Razor.
Following a certain dialogue branch for the first time gives you seven Adventurer's Experience. However, this option is only available after you accept the quest ...What Do Adventurers Do Again? and talk to Tiantian.

Prior to completing Three Poignant Perfumes
- Lan: ...? Excuse me, adventurer. Please see Katheryne about anything Guild-related — I am not intimately acquainted with the workings of the Guild.
- Who are you?
- Lan: If you're looking for the Master of the Liyue Adventurers' Guild, I regret to inform you that, that would be me.
- Lan: By which I mean, don't expect any help from me on Guild-related matters. I avoid involving myself in such bothersome affairs.
- Lan: That is, unless you bring news about the sword.
- What sword?
- Lan: My older brother's sword. If I find it, I can finally give him a proper burial...
- Lan: It's the only fitting way to go for a martial artist like him.
- Lan: It's a flat blade, sharp enough to slide an airborne hair in two. It's named "Unseen Razor."
- How did you become Master of the Liyue branch?
- Lan: Ugh, why does everyone ask me the same question... I will make an exception for you, though, and give you the full story.
- Lan: I used to be a mercenary. I joined the Adventurers' Guild so I could take advantage of their superior intelligence network and track down the sword.
- Lan: I may not be very literate but I can read the word "sword". So I just took on every single commission that had something to do with a sword.
- Lan: Then, just when I'd finished my eighth— or was it my ninth commission? Anyway, I'd just finished it, and then word came from the headquarters in Snezhnaya that I'd apparently completed two S-rank commissions.
- Lan: ...And suddenly I found myself promoted to branch Guild Master. It was all very strange indeed.
- ... You're amazing.
- Lan: You think so? Well, I don't do it for any kind of praise or approval.
- Lan: But since I am branch master and all that, I guess I have to show I'm making an effort or something.
- Lan: I jotted down some thoughts on adventuring back when I was looking for the sword. Here, take them. Maybe you'll find them useful.
- (Obtain Adventurer's Experience ×7)
- I'll let you know if I find anything.
- Lan: Oh, thanks! I love meeting people like you who are up for everything.
- Lan: I am grateful to you, newcomer. It looks like it was worth me joining the Guild after all.
- So, have you seen someone who looks like me?
- Lan: Like you? ...Oh, I see. You're looking for family.
- Lan: I haven't, no, but I will keep it in mind.
- Lan: I've been separated from family before. I know how you feel...
- Lan: Aight, don't drag this out.
After completing Three Poignant Perfumes
- Lan: It's been a while since I saw you last. For any Guild-related matters, please talk to Katheryne.
- Have we met?
- Lan: Huh? Don't tell me you've forgotten who I am? Luckily, I still remember you.
- Lan: I'm the Master of the Liyue Adventurers' Guild, although I tend to avoid involving myself in Guild-related matters and other such bothersome affairs.
- Lan: All that interests me is news about the sword.
- The sword? What sword?
- (Rest of the dialogue is the same as everything under "What sword?")
- (Same as before)
- In the Japanese version, she is one of a few people from Liyue whose name is pronounced by kun'yomi (native reading) of kanji characters, rather than on'yomi (Sino-Japanese reading). If her personal name were pronounced by on'yomi, it would be Ran.
- Her personal name in South Korean is 란 Ran, which is the transcription of the Chinese name, instead of the expected form 남(嵐) Nam.
