Genshin Impact Trailer Explains Changsheng and Baizhu’s Contract

Ever since Baizhu was introduced in Genshin Impact, he’s always been seen with the talking snake Changsheng around his neck. Now that he’s a playable character, his Lagenaria Act 1 Story Quest is also live. Part of it explains the connection between the two, and HoYoVerse shared the cinematic going over their relationship and past online.

Editor’s Note: The Genshin Impact Changsheng teaser features spoilers for the Baizhu Story Quest.

The video explains Changsheng’s full history. Apparently, years ago, a doctor dealing with a plague headed to Chenyu Vale to find an “herblord.” That is Changsheng, who was apparently ill and dying. Any doctor who made a contract with the snake would be able to use extraordinary healing abilities at the cost of tying their life to hers and dying young as a result. Since that first meeting, each doctor’s passed the contract on to one of their apprentices. As a result, Baizhu formed a contract with Changsheng in Genshin Impact, which involves him accepting a shorter lifespan and illness in exchange for being able to heal people.

This is reflected in Baizhu’s moveset. He acts as a healer in Genshin Impact, with snake imagery when he attacks or uses abilities.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the Baizhu banner is available until May 23, 2023.
