Following tradition, on the eve of the latest Genshin Impact update going live, HoYoverse teases the feature characters of the following update. With Version 3.4 going live shortly, we have received a look at which two characters will be up once Version 3.5 goes live later in 2023.
Continuing to release story-critical characters from the Sumeru arc, the first featured character will be Dehya, the unfettered desert mercenary who wields a claymore and the pyro element. She is expected to be the featured 5-star character.
“The Eremites,” a loosely-organized mercenary organization, is Sumeru’s most powerful armed force. They consist of many mercenaries and bands of warriors-for-hire who carry out assignments independently.
One such brigade is the “Blazing Beasts,” whose most renowned member is Dehya, also known as the “Flame-Mane.”
A highly regarded warrior among the mercenary circles, Dehya is brave without being impulsive, and strong without being arrogant. Life in the harsh desert environment has allowed Dehya to accumulate much combat wisdom through various battles, and she is by no means your typical insolent and ignorant martial artist.
As long as the pay is good and the commission reasonable, Dehya is more than willing to take up her sword to defend those who hire her.
However, there is one thing these employers should be aware of. That is, the agreement they establish with Dehya is only temporary and purely transactional. The reins to tame this lioness is never, and will never be in their hands.
Although mercenaries sell their strength to make a living, their dignity and lives belong only to themselves.
The desert lioness is no one’s slave, and her sword only follows her heart.
Following his debut during Genshin Impact’s 2nd Anniversary festivities, the cryo-catalyst user Mika should be available to join your character roster soon. It is uncertain whether he will be a 4-star or 5-star character, although mumblings are that he will be this update’s new 4-star.
Mika, who is a member of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company, always diligently fulfills all the duties that come his way.
Setting up tents, lighting fires for cooking, repairing equipment… Even Hertha, the logistics captain, has nothing but praise for Mika’s excellent efficiency.
Mika’s dedication to work is not due to a weak character or his inability to say no, but instead stems from the value that he attaches to teamwork, and a genuine desire to learn from his experienced colleagues.
“Helping everyone as much as possible benefits the entire team too!”
Mika’s favorite pastime is closely linked to his primary duty as a front-line surveyor.
That is: surveying unexplored regions, recording topographical data, and drawing accurate and effective maps.
“There is an abundance of resources here, but it is surrounded by monsters. Take note to exercise caution.”
Mika, whose dream is to become an expert cartographer, adds another annotation to the new version of the military map he is designing.
