A mysterious guest invited by the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. Extremely knowledgeable in all things.

Zhongli Story Overview

Wangsheng Funeral Consultant

Zhongli is mostly known in Liyue as the mysterious consultant in the Wangsheng Funeral. He basically works for Hu Tao.

The God Of Contract

Zhongli, Rex Lapis, or Morax is the Geo Archon, the God of Contracts that resides in the nation of Liyue. Leaving his life as the Geo Archon, he is now wandering along with the human just like Venti, thus people are unaware that Zhongli is the Rex Lapis.

No Mora To Spare

Zhongli's mortal form is similar to Venti. Both are Gods but now lives as a commoner. Since Zhongli is the creator of the current Teyvat currency, he tends to forgot that time has changed and every thing needs to be paid in Mora.

Voicelines About Zhongli

Voicelines About Zhongli
ChongyunChongyunThat Zhongli from the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor seems to be quite an incredible man. Just think, common folk might gang up to commit a murder, we exorcists vanquish demons ー but he alone buries the bodies of the adepti.
XianglingXianglingI've come across a lot of fussy eaters, but Mr. Zhongli is very particular and has no problem getting straight to what he as to say. The first time I served him salt and pepper tofu, he took just one bite, and then proceeded to say: "It would be better to try sea salt extracted from the shallow seas of Guyun Stone Forest, because it would bring a fresh sense of depth to the tofu." I tried it and the taste was just so different! He's just amazing don't you think!?
ChildeChildeAbout Pondering: There's far more to that man than meets the eye. As for the extent of his power... lots to look forward to, I think.
About Challenge: Tell me, how has Mr. Zhongli been lately? Not bad, you say? Seems he's had no problem acclimating to "mortal" life. Hmph, he sure had me fooled. Such a fiasco mustn't be so easily forgiven! The only way to reconciliation is fierce combat! What do you mean I'm no match for him? Hahaha...
Hu TaoHu TaoZhongli looks young but his personality is a bit dusty. Knows everything, but doesn't fret over anything. Hmm... Couldn't be that he's a... Hehe, forget it, whatever.
XiaoXiaoCan I ask...Zhongli ー what does he do with his days? Huh? Birds, antiques, flowers... Hmm... What deeper meaning do they hold?
VentiVentiHave you seen that gentleman around? Huh? He's just a normal man by the name of Zhongli now? That must be quite the change for that old block-head. Come with me to see him, will you? I have a vintage I dug up from Windrise that I can take as a condolence gift. Oh, ahh... did he still seem strong when you saw him? How strong? Am I likely to get blown away?
KeqingKeqingThe gentleman from the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor? Clearly, he's an extremely learned individual, and I do have a lot of respect for him. But his mindset is too traditional for me ー he thinks in the same tired old terms as Rex Lapis did... If he were more of an original thinker, I'm sure he'd be a great asset to me in reaching my objectives.
NingguangNingguangZhongli...Of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. He's very versed in a great deal of affairs. Although... such excellent pawns are of no use to me until I know their weakness.
YanfeiYanfeiMr. Zhongli has so much in-depth knowledge on so many topics, he's like a walking library, you know what I mean? He's a total savant, though he never flaunts it. I could tell just by looking at him. People like him rarely shy away from taking on complex problems alone, so in my estimation he's certainly not a potential client. And yet, somehow, I can't help but think I know him from somewhere, it's hard to describe the feeling... I asked my father about it, and he just said something to the effect of he didn't know either, though he seemed a little evasive. It was so strange... Anyway, makes me wonder if my father is hiding something from me. Hmph, alright then — if he won't tell me what's going on, I'll just have to find out for myself...
BeidouBeidouYou mean the gentleman from Wangsheng Funeral Parlor? My men sometimes speak of the rumors surrounding him ー he sounds interesting. Yes. if I get the chance, I'd like to meet him someday.
XingqiuXingqiuMy father and brother entertained that gentleman as a guest once. From the way they were acting, he must be a very high-profile figure indeed. I also heard that he directs funerals for the adepti, so he must surely have great depth to his character. We should do some digging and see what we can find out about him!
XinyanXinyanThere was this one fellow who invited me to perform at his place, back when there weren't many who would give my music the time of day. I was touched, let me tell you what. Like, hey someone gets it! I agreed right away... But when I got there, I found out that he was the consultant at the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. What a weird guy. I mean, how was that appropriate?

I need his shield now,...i'm suffering enough with my noelle T_T

Anonymous 13

At C6, he can heal, so shouldn't healer be put next to his character types?

Quick Fix 12

Still need to change his artifact preference to Severed Fate

Anonymous 11

You guys saying Zhongli isn't S tier are just salty you didn't get him. He's easily the best shield support and one of the best burst supports in the game. JP tier list on game8 has him @ SS tier FFS. Past C2 he's game breaking.
