Attention: Uploading leaks will result in the player being banned and prosecuted by the developer miHoYo.
This is “Demon Conqueror” Xiao
Xiao is an adept and the only remaining member of the five yakshas sent by Morax to subdue the demonic spirits that plagued Liyue. He currently lives at the Wangshu Inn, where he isolated himself from crowds and human interactions.
- Xiao fights with a lance
- Anemo is his element
These are his abilities:
Xiao strikes up to six times in a row with his lance. Like other characters with a lance, he charges his opponents when the attack button is held down. Its two skills are:
- Lemniscatic Wind Cycling: Charge towards enemies, causing Anemo damage to anyone in his way. It Can be used in mid-air and has 2 charges. In the leaked video, we see Xiao using this ability more than 2 times. This suggests that the hero has already been further trained within his constellation.
- Bane of al Evil: Takes the form of the yaksha that terrified both demons and archons alike thousands of years ago. Increases Xiao’s attack range and ATK for its duration, while converting damage type to Anemo and improving Xiao’s jumping ability. Xaio continuously loses life points.

When does Xiao appear in Genshin Impact?
Xiao is expected to be released next month with the Genshin Impact version 1.3 update. Since Xiao appeared in the Genshins Closed Beta in early 2020, gamers have wondered when he will be added to the list of playable characters. However, players found that Xiao’s story would come with version 1.3, as it coincides with the Lantern Festival in February.
Version 1.3 is expected around mid to late February 2021. Xiao should then appear in his character banner. Hu Tao should also appear with patch 1.3 and receive their banner after Xiao.
