"To cleanse the land, and defend our safe harbor." That was the first contract in Liyue. And now... the final contract, too, has been set in stone.

Rex Lapis1.png
The currencies that flow through this land are my flesh and blood. For thus did I become the guarantor of the people's hard work, wisdom, and future.
This is the trust I have placed in them.
Betray it, and you taint my blood.
~ Rex Lapis


Zhongli is a very learned and erudite character hired by Wangsheng Funeral Home. He is a serene, dutiful and respectful individual who is well versed in the arts, literature, history and customs of Liyue, including those that have been neglected or distorted over the years.

As revealed in the Liyue chapter, Zhongli's true identity is that of Morax, also commonly known as Rex Lapis by the locals, the former Geo Archon and ruler of Liyue. After realizing that his time as the nation's guiding deity had potentially come to an end, he orchestrates the events of the Liyue Chapter in collaboration with the members of Fatui to test whether Liyue was ready to leave behind the era of gods and adepts and enter a new era of prosperity.

It confers upon each Archon their status as divine protector of their respective lands and allows them to receive the power of faith from the citizens of their nation. In the case of the Gnosis of the Geo-Archon, his power also allows him to create the Mora, the currency of the world.
