Xiao's In-Game Information

Character Thoughts on Xiao

Genshin Impact - Beidou ImageBeidou One year on the eve of the Lantern Rite, we ran into a storm as we were returning to port. Try as we did, we only made it back to Liyue Harbor in the dead of night, long after the lanterns had all been released. As I looked towards Guyun Stone Forest, I saw an adeptus, floating in the air, in the form of what appeared to be a young boy. I guess it is like the legends say ー there really must be those that watch over Liyue, even if they cannot be seen.
Genshin Impact - Chongyun ImageChongyun The Conqueror of Demons himself has defended Liyue side-by-side with we exorcists for generations, day after day, night after night. I have the utmost respect for Xiao. It’s just… Why must he be so disparaging towards us? He says our repertoire is lacking and our power is trivial. I’m sorry, but I just can’t accept that.
Genshin Impact - Ganyu ImageGanyu He seems like a bit of an outsider, socially. Probably just his personality... I can understand that, to be honest, but I'm not really about to try and get close to him. I mean... all the people he's ever agreed to team up with are no longer with us...
Genshin Impact - Keqing ImageKeqing I feel like now that we live in the age of mankind's rule, it's time for the legendary boy-adeptus to be released from duty. We no longer need a defender of that kind, because we are capable of working through the challenges we face on our own strength.
Genshin Impact - Qiqi ImageQiqi Name - Sounds like a historical artifact to me.
Memory - Remind me, have I met him before?
Genshin Impact - Zhongli ImageZhongli You speak of the young adeptus of Guili Plains… 'sigh' Still fulfilling his duty to this very day. Please give these painkillers to him on my behalf. Oh, yes ー be sure not to let Paimon eat them. Nothing of this world can withstand the power of this medicine.

>>7 Yup. He's another selfish DPS like Razor and needs to stay on the field for a long time in order to maximize his capabilities. Having supports that have skills that will persist even after switching characters will be most suitable for him - Characters like Bennett, Xiangling, Xingqiu, Qiqi, and Zhongli to name a few...

Does Xiao's 'Bane of All Evil' disappear when switching characters like how Razor's burst disappears or does it not go away when swapping.
