Q: What does Xiao Yao mean at the end when he said "Do you understand?" to the Sword Saint? He calls Xiao Yao "child", is he Xiao Yao's father?
A: This question has been asked a lot, but Calcifer has come up with a reasonable response to this. "I personally thought what Xiao Yao meant by "do you understand" was "do you understand what it feels like to be left behind?" He talked about this with Yue Ru at one point (middle of Ep 22 when they were discussing what Cai Yi, the butterfly spirit, said), and he said he didn't want Yue Ru to know that kind of pain. Ling'er also said something along the same lines before she died, that the one left behind goes through the most pain. Now Xiao Yao's the one left behind, and he asks Sword Saint if he understands, since Sword Saint apparently tried to stop all this from happening."
The Sword Saint is definitely not Xiaoyao's father. Xiaoyao's father is Li San Si and is an actual character in the game prequel XianJian QiXia Zhuan 3A.
