Xiao (Chinese: , Xiāo) was available as a playable character during the 2nd Closed Beta Test, but was not available in 3rd Closed Beta Test or version 1.0 (release). He is expected to be re-released eventually.



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 for thousands of years. 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[1]


Xiao may have the appearance of a young man, but his true age is something over two thousand years. Fortunately, people do not tend to underestimate him on the basis of his appearance—one only needs to spend a short time with Xiao to clarify that he is not someone to be trifled with. Xiao is a man of few words. He is highly dangerous, and has the most piercing gaze you've ever seen. He enjoys a formidable reputation and high level of seniority among the adepti, but is relatively unknown in the mortal realm. This is inevitable. Xiao is not one of those popular deities to whom people pray for wealth and protection, nor is he a mystical sage of Jueyuejian to whom pilgrims flock in search of divine wisdom.

No; if any mortal is unfortunate enough to witness Xiao unleash his true power, it is certain to be under the most dire of circumstances—and they will be extremely lucky if they survive the ordeal. This is not because Xiao seeks to harm people. Rather, since Xiao is accustomed to waging war against dark forces powerful enough to devour Liyue in its entirety, any bystanders who witness him in the heat of battle are likely to end up as victims of circumstance. To be clear, this simply means that collateral damage is hard to avoid—not that Xiao goes around silencing witnesses.- in-game Character Detail text.


Xiao has medium-length black hair, 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. Around his left arm, Xiao wears a white and gold sleeve with a red lining.

  • While visiting Qingce Village, Little Luo may mention to the Traveler that she saw a handsome, unsmiling Adeptus. Luo states that the Adeptus returned a doll some local hilichurls had stolen to her. Since none of the other known Adepti have taken human forms, this may have been Xiao.
