First and foremost, you should know that Xiao may look like a young man, but he is older than you think. He is a much-revered Adepti who is used to wage war against dark forces and is devoted to protecting Liyue.

According to a blog post from developer miHoYo, Xiao is over two thousand years old. You can read that passage below:

“His youthful appearance belies his over two thousand years of age. None would trifle with him, however. Simply making his acquaintance will make it clear that he is not to be made light of. Xiao is a perilous man of few words, and his eyes are as sharp as blades.”

However, being over two thousand years old may mean more than it seems. Morax formed a contract with the Adepti, and since the former is mostly known as the playable character Zhongli, which is said to be over 6,000 years old, this opens up new and unforeseen roads for Xiao's age.

Given that the Archon Wars raged on for an unknown period of time and drew to a close over 2,000 years ago, Xiao's exact age is very difficult to say for a fact, since there are various unknown factors at play that could place him over 3,000 years old or more. Who knows, he may be 4,000 years old or more, but until we discover more tidbits of lore that help us come to a close about this mystery, we'll settle for the over two thousand years age. He's quite in top shape for someone that old, we have to admit.
