Xiao (Chinese: 魈 Xiāo, "Demon"), Yaksha name Alatus, is an adeptus and the only remaining member of the Five Yakshas dispatched by Morax to subdue the demonic spirits that plagued Liyue. He currently resides in Wangshu Inn, where he secludes himself from crowds and human interactions.
One of the "Mighty and Illuminated Adepti" guarding Liyue, also heralded as the "Guardian Yaksha."
Despite his appearance as a young man, occasional legends about him have been documented in ancient books.
He is especially fond of Wangshu Inn's Almond Tofu. The reason is that the dish tastes just like the "dreams" he used to devour.
Description from Official Website
A yaksha adeptus who defends Liyue. Also heralded as the "Conqueror of Demos" and "Vigilant Yaksha."
In-game character attributes text
Xiao is shown to be quite polite, reserved, logical and determined, albeit curt and straight to the point. He is rarely in a good mood and prefers being alone. He shows almost no interest in humans and their culture, some of which he finds strange and/or pointless; however, there are a few who he finds notable, such as Hu Tao for her "interesting" humor and Beidou for defeating a leviathan by herself.
As a result of his Yaksha duties, Xiao is constantly afflicted by his negative karmic burdens due to the endless slaughter performed under the rule of an evil god. Others have taken note of the pain he constantly suffers and take pity on him, being the only Yaksha to actively protect Liyue, whereas his fellow comrades have since disappeared or died. This negative karma is also the reason he prefers being alone, as he does not wish to burden others with his own problems.
He prefers Almond Tofu because it reminds him of the dreams he consumes. He dislikes other foods and cannot stomach them.
Xiao has medium-length black hair with teal undertones, pale skin, and amber eyes. He has green markings/tattoos around his right arm.
Xiao wears a white sleeveless shirt with a black collar, dark purple pants, and dark purple boots. He wears black and dark turquoise gloves with gold decals and a necklace.

He is usually seen carrying his Yaksha mask on the back of his right hip.
