Gaoshun: The Apothecary Diaries character explained

Gaoshun is Master Jinshi’s trusted attendant who often serves as the person who keeps him grounded. The character is voiced by Katsuyuki Konis and Alex Hom.

Gaoshun is a constant presence by Jinshi’s side, typically tasked with ensuring they stay on track with their responsibilities.

However, when Maomao enters the palace and captures Jinshi’s attention, it profoundly impacts Jinshi, posing a challenge for Gaoshun in managing his behavior.

Maomao finds herself gravitating towards Gaoshun’s company, appreciating his respectful demeanor in contrast to Jinshi’s occasionally inappropriate conduct.

In their interactions, when Gaoshun addresses Maomao as ‘lady,’ she requests a less formal approach.

Heeding her preference, Gaoshun affectionately adopts the nickname ‘Xiaomao’ for her.
