Is Part ofLantern Rite: Day 3
DescriptionMaterials which are used to make lanterns are all easily flammable, and they're piling up at Liyue's port. Between the mountains of materials, you saw a mysterious figure, which shortly got annoyed by your presence and told you off. You and Paimon shared a look and stared at the piles of wood, paper, and oil... You have a bad feeling about this and you went to the Ministry of Civil Affairs to report the situation. Now you're wondering how they're handling the situation, and you've decided to go and see.

• Talk to Jiayi at the Ministry of Civil Affairs
JiayiJiayi: Erm... Ah yes, you two were here yesterday to report some suspicious activity.Jiayi: I... *sigh* I won't lie to you, the Ministry of Civil Affairs is unbelievably busy during Lantern Rite. We simply don't have the staff to cover this case at the moment.Paimon: What? Are you kidding me!?Jiayi: I do hate to let you down like this, and I appreciate that you took the trouble to report this out of the goodness of your hearts. Hmm, I wonder if...Jiayi: I do believe we have one smaller squad that just might be able to help. They only have one assignment left today.Jiayi: They are currently subduing the monster presence at the Guili Plains. If you are able to make contact with them...
• Find the Millelith
• Defeat the hilichurls and their roadblock
• Talk to the squad of the Millelith
XinghuoXinghuo: The monster presence has been duly investigated. Dismissed! ...Huh?Xinghuo: Who are you with?Paimon: Jiayi sent us to find you, he said...Xinghuo: I see. I understand.Xinghuo: The Ministry of Civil Affairs is grateful for your support. Your case is well noted and will be scheduled for investigation as soon as possible.Xinghuo: May our paths cross again in Liyue, kind travelers.Paimon: #{NICKNAME}, Paimon is starting to feel like...
Paimon: Exactly! Paimon thinks so too!Paimon: The locals must take all their tasty treats for granted by now.Paimon: But for a poor traveler, all alone out in the wilderness, often forced to survive on nothing but the most mysterious of mushrooms...Paimon: For you, the Lantern Rite is the most important of all festivals!Paimon: So let's go back to the place where we witnessed the shady-looking guy.Paimon: Paimon hears from patrol officers that criminals love to go back for another look at the crime scene after the event. Eh, it's a psychological thing, apparently.
Paimon: That's why there's no time to lose! When there's highly flammable materials involved, once the crime happens it'll be too late!
Paimon: Paimon thinks so too!Paimon: With our wealth of experience adventuring far and wide, we should be able to get to the bottom of this.Paimon: So let's go back to the place where we witnessed the shady-looking guy.Paimon: Paimon hears from patrol officers that criminals love to go back for another look at the crime scene after the event.

• Go back to the crime scene
Paimon
Paimon: Aha! Knew it!
Paimon: Wait, there's another person—
Paimon: Wait, there's another person—
• Talk to the stranger
XiaoPaimon: ...Xiao: ...Paimon: #Hey {NICKNAME}, Paimon reckons this guy is gonna make a difficult conversation partner...Paimon: If Paimon was gonna hazard a guess, Paimon would say he's definitely not one of the good guys!Xiao: Your hazardous guesswork is a woefully insufficient means of judging between good and evil.Xiao: Nevertheless, you surmise correctly. I am a malevolent spirit. A guardian yaksha, slaughterer of monsters and vanquisher of demons - Xiao.Paimon: Guardian Yaksha!
Paimon: Yes... Someone from Liyue was telling us that yakshas are also a kind of adeptus. Supernatural beings that protect Liyue.Paimon: They stand guard over the human world in secret, protecting it from monsters and demons. But most people don't even know they exist.Paimon: ...Wait, doesn't that make you the good guys by most definitions?Xiao: ...No. Do not mistake the yakshas' guardianship for some sort of good will towards humanity.Paimon: Hmph, charming! There's a whole city of humans out there working hard to prepare for Lantern Rite, all for the sake of honoring the heroes of Liyue's history...Paimon: ...Turns out we have here an actual historical hero, who has miraculously survived through to this day... and yet, he doesn't even appreciate the gesture!Xiao: ...Paimon: So, Mr. Xiao... Uh, that is, assuming "Mr." is the correct way to address an adeptus... Why didn't you stop that shady character earlier?
Xiao: I sensed a malign influence here. I'm here to investigate.
Xiao: When a shackle is loosened in the realms of deities and demons, I take full responsibility.
Xiao: But this time, the threat comes from the mortal world — your world. Thus you shall take full responsibility, mortal traveler.
Xiao: When the time comes, I hope you shall act promptly and decisively...
Xiao: I do not wish for the tassel of the polearm that has slaughtered countless demons to become stained with mortal blood.
Paimon: What's this?
Xiao: A symbol that your suspected evildoer left behind.
Paimon: Doesn't look familiar to Paimon.
Xiao: Well, you will have to show me how much you can accomplish on your own strength.
Xiao: Because if I become involved, there is a possibility that the streets of Liyue Harbor will be painted red this Lantern Rite.
Paimon: That sounds terrible!
Paimon: Ahh, let's not be impulsive. Why don't we figure out the origins of this symbol first?
Paimon: Yes... Someone from Liyue was telling us that yakshas are also a kind of adeptus.
