Xiao is called a demon slayer by Genshin Impact players. The previous trailer even specified that he was one of the five Yaksha warriors that Zhongli summoned to fight the demons threatening Teyvat. It is after this occasion that many questions were raised regarding Yakshas Genshin Impact.

Will they have a potential appearance in the future updates and what are their stories? Let’s find out right now.

Yaksha Genshin Impact
What is the origin of 5 Yakshas and who killed the Yakshas? Let us shed light on you for all these questions.

Who are the 5 Yakshas in Genshin Impact?

Yakshas Genshin Impact are 5 warriors created by Zhongli, or Rex Lapis, to prevent evils from invading Liyue. In the Genshin lore book “Yakshas: The Guardian Adepti”, they are named Bosacius, Indarias, Bonanus, Menogias, and Alatus.

Three of them are apparently dead, one goes missing, and Xiao remains the only active warrior.

We know that Alatus is Xiao, taking hints from his constellation name and the fact that both of them are called Conqueror of Demons.

Yaksha meaning and lores

What is the meaning behind Yaksha's names and what led to their vanishing?

1. Yaksha meaning

In Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain texts, the yakshas mean nature spirits whom people worshipped as guardian deities. They all serve Kubera – the god of prosperity and wealth. In several Buddhist beliefs, he is called the god of war, Vaiśravaṇa. These two epithets are attributed to Morax.

In art, Yakshas sculptures were also among the earliest deities to be depicted. They were the prototypes for the kings and gods’ attendants in later Buddhist, Jain, and Hindu art.

In various texts, Yakshas mean the guardian deities who serve the gods of war and wealth.

2. Who killed the Yakshas Genshin Impact?

Among the five Yakshas, Indarias, Bonanus, and Menogias died. It is yet possible to attach their names to the warriors shown in the Yakshas: The Guardian Adepti story teaser.

Apparently, the Pyro Yaksha broke down to madness, and the Geo Yaksha slain the Hydro Yaksha.

3. Is Xiao the most powerful Yaksha?

Xiao, being over 2000 years old, has the privilege of time and uses that to be one of the most formidable existing Adepti. Moreover, among the five Adepti assigned to be demon slayers, Xiao is the only to remain sane and alive. This speaks volumes about the power he embraces.

For the unknown, Xiao almost lost his life one night due to his karma. However, the calming sound coming from Barbatos Venti’s flute pulled him back to sanity and saved him.

Xiao is the only active Yaksha currently.

The official Yaksha trailer also hinted that the Adeptus is out and about some nights to listen to Venti’s flute. In fact, this is one of the most surprising Xiao facts that any fan will grow interest of.
