How Old is Zhongli in Genshin Impact?

In his human form, Zhongli appears to be a man between 25 and 30 years of age. However, that is merely his surface identity. Zhongli's true identity is the Geo Archon Morax, who was present in the Archon War and helped shape the beginnings of Liyue Harbor.

Morax, also known as Rex Lapis by the people of Liyue, is the oldest of the seven Archons. In the main storyline of Genshin Impact, it's stated that he is over 6,000 years old, although his exact age is unknown.

Zhongli's age means that he has witnessed a vast number of major events in the history of Teyvat. He established Liyue Harbor and formed a contract with the adepti to defend it. He was one of seven victors of the Archon War that was fought 2,000 years ago, where he waged bloody battles against other ancient gods, including Osial and the Chi of Guyun.

Zhongli is the oldest character we know of in Genshin Impact, and we may never get to know his exact age, but there is no denying how fascinating this 6,000-year-old character is.
