Zhongli: Playstyle and skill-set of the character
Zhongli is Wangsheng Funeral Parlor‘s mysterious consultant who is handsome, elegant and surpassingly learned. Though no one knows where Zhongli is from, he is a master of courtesy and rules. From his seat at Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, he performs all manner of rituals.
He is later revealed to be the current vessel of the Geo Archon, Morax, who has decided to experience the world from the perspective of a mortal. After giving up his Gnosis, he retires from his position as an Archon and returns to his former identity as an Adeptus. He currently works as a consultant of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. Zhongli is a 5-Star Geo “Polearm” wielding character. His constellation is “Lapis Dei”. These are her talents are as they follow.
