Profile

Introduction

The second son of the Feiyun Commerce Guild, Xingqiu has had a reputation for being studious and polite ever since he was a young child. But there is another side to the mild-mannered Xingqiu everyone knows. A daring, adventurous and much more mischievous side...

–Description from Official Website[1]

Personality

Every merchant in Liyue Harbor knows of Xingqiu from the Feiyun Commerce Guild.

All see him as a kind and well-mannered young man who is an excellent student, a top talent in every sense.

As the second-born son of the family, Xingqiu is not required to shoulder the burden of managing the Guild's affairs. However, Xingqiu possesses a unique scholarly talent among his peers- that is, the offspring of Liyue's wealthiest merchants- and was often praised by his tutors as a young student.

Xingqiu's elder brother, while he was learning the family business from their father, firmly believed that Xingqiu would become a great asset to the business one day.

However, little did he know that Xingqiu, after finishing the dauntingly thick volumes on commerce and philosophy, would hollow them out and sneak martial art novels into them, which he read incessantly thereafter.

Sometimes, Xingqiu suddenly disappears for hours at a time with no explanation. When asked why, he simply replies: "A moment of solitude." - in-game Character Detail text.

A young man carrying a longsword who is frequently seen at book booths. He has a heart of gold and yearns for justice and fairness for all.

Xingqiu wears a jacket made up of black, white, and navy cloth and gold decals. He also wears a pair of navy- blue shorts.
