Cyno is an Electro-element character that first made his appearance in Genshin Impact in Chapter III of the Teyvat Chapter Storyline: Travail, which was released in 2020. Chapter I and II characters such as Diluc, Kamisato Ayaka, and Ningguang have since become playable characters, so this could be something we could see happen to Cyno in the future.

Nahida is a mysterious girl you will meet on your journey in Sumeru. There is still a lot of uncertainty if the Dendro Archon, Lesser Lord Kusanali, is the same character as Nahida.


Nilou Genshin Impact

Nilou is a Hydro-element character described to have "went off the beaten path" by choosing to pursue art and dance. This runs counter to the traditional values such as rationality and wisdom that are especially treasured in a place such as Sumeru.
