Apparently, there are some nations in Genshin Impact. As a player of Genshin Impact, you need to know about it as you may have to visit the nations to complete your quests. One of the nations of Teyvat is Liyue. Well, let us talk more about Liyue here.
You have to know that Liyue is one of the seven nations in Teyvat. Liyue is the city-state that worships Morax, the Geo Archon. In the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview, Dainsleif says this about Liyue. This is a bountiful harbor that lies in the east of Teyvat. Mountains stand tall alongside the stone forest, together with the open plains and lively rivers, make up the Liyue’s bountiful landscape that shows its unique beauty through each of the four seasons.
Based on history, Liyue is the oldest of the seven nations in Teyvat, established 3,700 years ago once Morax signed a contract with the adepti to protect Liyue Harbor. Long before the establishment of Liyue Harbor, when lots of gods roamed the lands of Teyvat and before The Seven took their positions, many settlements existed in the lands which would become Liyue. During this time, Morax ruled with the God of Dust, Guizhong, in the land known as Guili Plains. This civilization prospered under their rule and with the protection of the adepti.
Once the Archon War broke out, the settlement met its end in fierce fighting which ended with the death of Guizhong, while the area now known as Dihua Marsh was turned from a fertile fields to a swamp. Morax brought their people south of Mt. Tianheng and established Liyue Harbor, where it continues to stand to this day. For protecting this new city, Morax made a contract with the adepti to protect it and also waged war against other gods. Between the subjugation of other gods like Osial, and the deaths of others for different reasons like Havria, finally Morax became the victor in Liyue and then took his place among The Seven as the Geo Archon.
