“Remember that I don’t go easy on anyone, even you!”
Amber is from the Mondstadt region and uses a bow as well as the Pyro element. She is the last remaining Outrider of the Knights of Favonius and considers it her duty to help the people of Mondstadt with any task, small or large. Amber has mastered her use of the glider, becoming a three-time winner of the Mondstadt gliding championship. However, she has had her licence revoked many times when deciding to bend the rules. With her outgoing personality, she is an energetic role model.
Amber had a special relationship with her grandfather. Growing up, he was always trying to get her out of trouble. Some of her mischiefs included setting fire to a Dendro Slime’s leaves and dropping eggs on her grandfather’s head. Like him, Amber then decided to become a member of the Knights of Favonius.
Kelly Baskin, professional yoga instructor and voice actor, has a shorter list of roles to her name than the average Genshin Impact voice actor.

Barbara Pegg is a descendant of the Gunnhildr clan whose weapon type is a catalyst, and she uses the Hydro element. She is the daughter of Frederica Gunnhildr and Seamus Pegg, as well as the sister of Jean. As the Deaconess of the Church of Favonius, Barbara considers herself an idol. She is hardworking and charismatic but clumsy too.
Barbara’s healing abilities can cure physical ailments, and the people of Mondstadt say that just seeing her can make your problems disappear. They also say that the sight of her can make them feel motivated. She is beloved by the people of her home region. However, she doubts her own abilities and importance.
Laura Stahl is the English version’s Genshin Impact voice actor for Barbara and Xinyan. Her other video game voice acting credits include Komitsu in Monster Hunter Rise, Skyla and other roles in Pokémon Masters. She is also set to play Einherjar in God of War: Ragnarök.

“Hey, it’s just lightning. No need to fear it on the open ocean, so there’s even less need to fear it on open land.”
Beidou fights with a claymore and the Electro element. In her hometown of Liyue, she is part of The Crux, a crew of heavily armed sailors. She has stated that she is used to spending more time at sea than on land and is a frequent breaker of the region’s rules. However, she has no problem with paying off her fines.
Beidou is known for the exaggerated stories people tell of her. Some say she would kill a man if he asked her about sea shanties. Some say she can harness electro energy through her sword, and some say she once split a colossal sea monster in half with just one swing of her claymore. Regardless, she is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with.
Allegra Clark is the exceptional Genshin Impact voice actor who speaks for Beidou. She has played characters in some high-profile games, including Josephine Montilyet in Dragon Age: Inquisition, Dorothea & Shamir in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and Bloodhound in Apex Legends.

Bennett uses the Pyro element along with his sword. Discovered as a baby by an elderly adventurer, the Adventurers Guild of Mondstadt brought him up. He once feared death but has begun to change his opinion. Bennett has a passion for adventuring, believing that a good death comes at the end of pursuing secrets and wonders. He knows that after he lives his life like this, people will praise his adventures at his funeral rather than being sad for him, just like his guru who took him in.
Bennett is known for his bad luck. As misfortune seems to follow him, every other member of “Benny’s adventure team” left the group, leaving him the only remaining member. However, Katheryne of the Adventurers Guild hasn’t told him this yet.

“We shouldn’t focus only on the gains and losses of our journey. The things you see and the events you encounter along the way are equally important rewards.”
Chongyun, whose name means “layers of clouds”, is a Cryo character who wields a Claymore. Although he has a vision (Cryo), he believes that training is the natural way to become stronger. As the heir to an exorcist clan in the region of Liyue, Chongyun spends his time banishing spirits. He has always been gifted with positive yang energy, making him good at exorcisms, but he has never actually seen a spirit as they immediately recoil from him.
Positivity might sound good, but an abundance of this yang causes extreme heat. To avoid getting too hot, Chongyun only wears thin, light clothes and eats cold food. Too much heat will sometimes make him irrational or feint in extreme cases.
The fantastic voice of Chongyun is brought to us by Genshin Impact voice actor Beau Bridgland. He has also played roles in other videogames such as Rinjin in Fruit Ninja 2, BetaMaster in Wasteland 3, and Heath, as well as other voices in Seiken Densetsu 3: Trials of Mana.
In television, he has given his voice to Jimmy in Pet Hotel, Bashara Suiro in Beyblade Burst QuadDrive, and Mob in Death Battle.
“Listen, as long as you stick to your own path, it doesn’t matter what mother nature throws at you.”
Diluc, also known as the “Darknight Hero”, uses the Pyro element and a Claymore. As the wealthiest and most courteous gentleman in his home region of Mondstadt, Diluc is adorned with jewels and feathers. He is the owner of the Dawn Winery and is esteemed in high society. Although he no longer works with the Knights of Favonius, he continues to protect Mondstadt in any way that he can.
Diluc adored his father, who also worked for the knights of Favonius when he was there. After an incident that resulted in his father’s death, Inspector Eroch asked Diluc to cover up the whole incident, leading to Diluc’s loss of faith in the Knights. He believes that they take too long to solve the world’s problems and left the group, although his resentment remains.
Sean Chiplock is the talented Genshin Impact voice actor who gives his voice to Diluc. He has an impressive list of acting credits for high profile games such as Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat 11, Revali, Teba and other voices in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as well as Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and Spider-Man in Marvel’s Avengers.

“Hark! ‘Tis Thundering Retribution, an omen of dark times ahead.”
Fischl von Luftschloss Narfidort, whose real name is Amy, is an Electro character who uses a bow. She works as an investigator along with her night raven for the Adventurers Guild of Mondstadt. She can be eccentric and outlandish. However, she has gained the respect of those at the guild for her hard work.
Fischl loves roleplay and fantasy stories. She usually roleplays as a princess and speaks politely to anyone she encounters in character, which can get confusing. Oz, her raven, often must translate for her. Most people she meets aren’t a fan of her character, even those who appreciate her work. Fischl finds it challenging to make friends but will always enjoy it when someone plays along.
Brittany Cox is the Genshin Impact voice actor who brings Fischl to life in the English version of the game. Her other games roles include but are not limited to Eko in Astria Ascending, Jill West in NBA 2K21, and Nancy Drew in Nancy Drew: Midnight in Salem.

Jean (AKA the Dandelion Knight) is a sword-bearing character in Genshin Impact gifted with the Anemo element. She is the grandmaster of the Knights of Favonius and delegates tasks to the respective experts under her wing. She will help guide you in your adventure early on and works tirelessly to help the people of Mondstadt, always with their best interests at heart. She is also the sister of Barbara and a descendant of the Gunnhildr Clan.
Jean works so hard to keep Modstadt safe that other characters worry for her. She puts in 100% effort in every task, large or small and often ends up exhausted by the end of the day. For this reason, she is respected by the other knights and the people of her region.
Stephanie Southerland gives an exceptional performance for Jean in Genshin Impact. She also has other voice acting experience for games, including Aiko in Shing, Neith Swift Scurrier in Smite, and Josephine Doody in Empire of Sin.

As one of the prominent Knights of Favonius, he is Jean’s most trusted aide and acts as the cavalry captain to the knights. Loved by most in Mondstadt, he takes his work of keeping its people safe very seriously.
Although he takes his work seriously, Kaeya frequently tells lies and loves the drama it can cause. He also enjoys putting people in very stressful circumstances just to watch them squirm. Generally, the people of Mondstadt don’t know much about him and wonder why he is so secretive, but they respect his efforts to keep them safe anyway.
For a Genshin Impact voice actor, Josey Montana McCoy has a short list of acting credits. He began his career in 2014 with Neighthan Rot in the TV movie Monster High: Freaky Fusion, and since then, he has also appeared as Jonah in MK Ultra and Professor Turbo in Hot Wheels Labs.

“If you feel strongly about something you should speak up and take action. That’s the philosophy I live by.”
Keqing is an electro character who defeats her foes with a sword. She makes her own way in life, not letting anyone else’s opinions affect her. She believes that there is no higher power than humanity and that they can decide their own future. She has a strong sense of responsibility and works tirelessly to prove this.
Keqing tries not to get used to any luxuries. However, she is particularly fond of her hairpin, which, along with her sword, is one of the only items she consistently carries. She has many unexpected uses for her pin, including catching fish by shocking them, cutting grass and using it as a weapon when caught in a pinch.
Kayli Mills is the Genshin Impact voice actor who brings Keqing to life. Her other game character roles include Kalamari in Terrain of Magical Expertise, Rose in Dark Deity, and Evie, as well as Skye in Paladins: Champions of the Realm.

Klee is a pyro character whose weapon class is a catalyst. Daughter of Alice the adventurer, her care has been handed over to the Knights of Favonius, who refer to her as the Spark Knight. She is amazed by anything that can explode and has a particular talent for building bombs. She enjoys “fish blasting”, which is her version of fishing. Instead of using a rod, she simply throws a bomb into a lake and saves herself some time.
As the leader of the Knights of Favonius, Jean is mainly in charge of keeping Klee safe. She frequently sends Klee to solitary confinement for bad behaviour to self-reflect. Unfortunately for Jean, Klee has been found to spend this time creating new ideas for bombs.
Poonam Basu is an actor, writer and filmmaker from New York, USA. She lends her voice to Klee in Genshin Impact and has other character roles in games under her belt, such as Gisu in Psychonauts 2 and various voices in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

“When I practice my spells in weather like this, I can do half the work for double the impact. Haha, I’m just teasing.”
In Genshin Impact, Lisa utilises the electro element and her catalyst weapon. From the region of Mondstadt, Lisa was the most distinguished graduate in her class. She has since become the librarian of the Knights of Favonius.
Although Lisa doesn’t seem to enjoy working hard, she takes late book returns very seriously, and there is even an entire quest based around it. She finds the regular section of the library boring but spends most of her time in the restricted section. The other characters would describe her as sweet, but they also know her temper. When Lisa gets angry, the area around her becomes electrified by her vision which also happens to be her punishment of choice for those who don’t return their books.
Mara Junot is the Genshin Impact voice actor who portrays Lisa. Most of her voice acting experience has been for videogames, and this includes roles for huge titles such as Evelyn in League of Legends, Ikora Rey in Destiny 2, Luna, and Ice Queen in Fortnight.

“Astrologers must rid themselves of material desires. Only by ridding oneself of clutter can one see the true world around them.”
Mona Megistus is a Hydro character who uses a catalyst as her weapon type, and she fled to Mondstadt for safety after she unintentionally read her master’s diary. Mona intends to outdo her master, an expert Hydromancer and astrologer, to become known as the world’s most extraordinary.
Although Mona is a talented astrologist, she refuses to use her abilities to make a profit. This leaves her strapped for cash most of the time and is often found thrifting. This has also given her the skill to cook with a lack of ingredients. Mona takes her astrology practice very seriously but also has other extraordinary talents. She can tell if a person is lying, understand their traits based on their assigned constellation, and know their intentions with just one look.
Felecia Angelle from Louisiana, USA, provides the voice of Mona in Genshin Impact. For TV, film and anime, she has voiced characters such as Sakura Suzhara in Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, Bunko in Wolf Children, and Uzuki in Castle Down Dandelion.
In games other than Genshin Impact, she has given her talented voice to roles such as Supreme Kai of Time in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, Barbara in Eternal Return: Black Survival, and Daniela in World War Z and many more.
“We should look for a new investment. Mora doesn’t grow on trees”
Ningguang, whose name means ‘condensed light’, fights with a catalyst and uses the Geo element. She is one of the seven governing members of the Liyue Qixing and owns the floating jade chamber in the sky above the city.
As one of the Tianquan, Ningguang has a significant influence in Liyue. She is known for her work ethic and perseverance toward becoming exceptionally wealthy. Making money through her business became her goal after her less fortunate upbringing. She is cunning and will use people as pawns in her quest for knowledge, but only if she already knows their weaknesses. This led to many people in Liyue striking a love/ hate opinion of her as she is ruthless but benefits the city’s success with her influence.
Erin Ebers voices Ningguag but has fewer credits than most Genshin Impact voice actors. Her other videogame roles include PC Recruit in Wasteland 3 and multiple characters, including Joyce Easton, Henrietta Winchester & Starving Responder in Fallout 76.
On TV and in shorts, she has played SID Trace in LA Forensics, Airazor in Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy, and Marissa in Five Ways to Say Goodbye.
“Ready for your tea break? Please wait here while I get it ready.”
Noelle carries a claymore and uses the Geo element to create a shield. Much like many children who have grown up in Mondstadt, she has always dreamt of becoming a knight. Currently, she’s a maid for the knights of Favonius but plans to use this position to join the fold one day.
Noelle uses her role as a maid to take notes on the knights, how they talk, conduct themselves and the traditional customs. Noelle has a strong work ethic, always going above and beyond the call of duty to please her counterparts. Lisa, leader of the knights, even believes that the more work she is given, the happier she is. Her eagerness to help others does have a downside, as people can sometimes take advantage of her kindness.
Laura Faye Smith is the English voice of Noelle in Genshin Impact and has a variety of live-action and voice acting credits to her name. In other games, she has played characters such as Male Kana in Fire Emblem: Fates and Rosalina in multiple Mario titles, including Mario Party Superstars & Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash.
On television, she has played DeEtta in Grimm, A.D. Grant in Exceptionals, and Tamara ‘Meds’ Malari in The Sojourn Audio Drama.
“Good evening. How was your day? My day was fine. I think. But I can’t remember.”
Qiqi, whose name means ‘seven-seven’, is a sword-wielding Cryo character in Genshin Impact. She was brought back to life as a blessing by the Adepti before working in Liyue Harbor’s pharmacy. Her body can no longer die due to the blessing. However, it has given her a very short-term memory.
As Qiqi forgets most things, she constantly takes notes of any important information or tasks that she must carry out. If only she could consistently remember to look at her notebook. At the pharmacy, she works as an apprentice/ herb gatherer and is known to be devoid of emotion. After her resurrection, she must give herself or be given tasks to complete which cannot be cancelled. She takes her work very seriously for this reason.
Christie Cate lends her vocal talents as a Genshin Impact voice actor to the character of Qiqi. She has also played roles in other videogames such as Selena in Shadowverse, Leah in Final Shot: Clan Wars, and Mu’Kay in Star Control: Origins.
Christie’s television roles are less prominent than her experience in games. However, she has played some characters such as Dilara in 50M2, Kyoko Yamate in D4DJ: First Mix, and other roles in shorts.
Razer uses both the Claymore and the electro element in Genshin Impact. The Wolf of the North, Andrius, took Razer in as an infant after being abandoned. He then grew up in Wolvendom with the wolf pack before once again speaking with humans after meeting Varka and the Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius.
Razor is generally found hunting with his wolf pack family in the woods. He does like humans, but other humans rarely wander the same area due to his pack’s reputation. After rare exposure to other people, Razor struggles to talk in complete sentences and eat food that isn’t meat. His identity is somewhere between man and wolf, giving him the benefits of extreme agility and speed while running.
Todd Haberkorn is the English voice actor for Razor. His list of credits is one of the most impressive of the Genshin Impact Voice actors, with hundreds and hundreds of examples. His other roles in games include Kagero in Monster Hunter: Rise, Drifter in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, and Nuclear Don in Fallout 76.
Todd also has extensive experience in anime and animated television, including the likes of Natsu Dragneel in Fairy Tail, Yoji & Motomiya in A Whisker Away, and Marlo Freudenberg in Attack on Titan.
“Finding those little secrets that living creatures have and scaling them up, combining them – the results are always such a surprise.”
Sucrose, from Mondstadt, uses a Catalyst as her weapon type and the Anemo element. She is an alchemist for the Knights of Favonius, working under Albedo as his assistant and specialising in bio-alchemy. She is fascinated by the world around her and everything in it with much curiosity.
Using her alchemist abilities, Sucrose tries to transform living things. This often leads to weird creations which have undoubtedly contributed to the field of bio-alchemy. She loves to experiment and spends a lot of time researching as she intends to discover the secrets of living things whilst also modifying them for improvement. Dedicated to her craft, she will rarely be found taking a break and is usually bored when she does.
Valeria Rodriguez has a shorter list of acting credits to her name than other Genshin Impact voice actors. Her roles include a mix of video games and animated television series characters, including Surreal Bebè in L.O.L Surprise! House of Surprises, Yasmin in Talking Bratz and Strawberry Crepe Cookie in Cookie Run: Kingdom.

As you travel the world of Tayvat, you will have the option to change this hero’s elemental ability.
The player chooses the personality of this character through dialogue options and playstyle. You are given various options regarding how you answer questions, whether they are bold, snarky, or humble. The Traveller and their sibling were attempting to leave Tayvat at the beginning of the game. An unknown god then kidnaps your sibling before you wake up sometime later to begin your quest trying to find them.

Venti is a bow-wielding Anemo character in Genshin Impact who the player will meet early in the game. He is actually Barbatos, the Anemo Archon of Mondstadt, disguised as a young bard. Venti’s Anemo ability is often seen in the form of feathers as he enjoys anything as light and breezy as the Anemo element itself. Cheerful and witty, he loves friendly communication, especially when dandelion wine is involved.
Enjoying the simple life of a bard, Venti likes to trade performances for alcohol and enjoys his time living amongst the people of his region. He can usually be found in the tavern, singing ancient songs with his lyre harp or reading poems. Exceptionally gifted with music, he’s won the title of the best bard in Mondtadt various times and likes to rhyme in his regular speech too.

Mao Xiangling is a Pyro character who uses a polearm. Daughter of Chef Mao, she is the head chef at the Wanmin Restaurant in Liyue Harbour. She loves to experiment when it comes to cooking, combining flavours and ingredients that some would consider odd. However, she is a master of the culinary arts, with everyone enjoying her creations.
The Liyue region has long been raging war between its two signature cooking styles: Li and Yue. Many rare ingredients are used to try and win this battle which often leaves little to work with. After inheriting her restaurant from her father, Xiangling preferred to ignore this heated debate and create whatever interesting ideas her mind can conjure instead. Occasionally one of her recipes will fall flat, but her father once told her that passion is the most essential part of cooking, and this message has stuck with her ever since.
Jackie Lastra brings her talented voice to Xiangling in Genshin Impact. She received her first acting credit in 2011. However, her voice acting career took off in 2014.

Xingqiu, whose name means the progression of Autumn, uses both a sword and the Hydro element in Genshin Impact. He is a seemingly well-mannered boy who loves to play pranks. He also enjoys reading and can usually be found in the Wanwen Bookhouse when he isn’t working. He even wrote his own book, which became popular in the Inazuma and Fontaine regions.
He is the son of the Feiyun Commerce Guild’s manager and the unofficial practitioner of the Guhua Clan. The guild is based in Liyue and works in trading, which has made Xingqiu exceptionally wealthy. He only chooses to use the guild’s influence when there is no other option. The clan is a martial arts school that specialises in fighting with polearms. Xingqiu has done his best to revamp the clan after declining in popularity over the years.
Cristina Vee Valenzuela voice Xingqiu and Bennett in Genshin Impact.

Diona’s weapon type is a bow, and she uses the Cryo element. Diona is the daughter of Draff the hunter and comes from the Mondstadt region, where she works as a bartender at Cat’s Tail. Everyone is obsessed with her drinks. However, she hates alcohol and yet is a significant threat to her competitors in Mondstadt’s wine industry. She doesn’t know it, but she was blessed with the ability only to make delicious drinks, even when she is actively trying to sabotage the industry.
Her bitterness towards alcohol started when she noticed how her father would change after drinking. She used to idolise him, but that stopped after her youth, and she now unfairly blames Diluc for her father’s drinking problem. Draff believes that she is just going through a rebellious phase.
Dina Sherman is the voice of Diona in the English version of Genshin Impact. One of her most iconic roles has been playing Yachiru Kusajishi in various TV shows and games for the Bleach franchise.

Tartaglia, also known as Childe, is a Hydro character who uses a bow from Shezhnaya. He is the eleventh and youngest member of the Fatui Harbingers who is always chasing danger. His actions are always unpredictable, and people consistently make the mistake of trying to guess his intentions.
Growing up, Tartaglia was timid and desperately wanted to be like the adventurers in his father’s stories. Skirk then trained him before his personality changed into who he is today. Tartaglia thrives in a fight, constantly trying to improve his war capabilities by battling any foe, even when it appears he may lose. He chooses to fight with a bow as it’s his weakest weapon, which will improve his skills and make victory all the more satisfying.

Xinyan, whose name means spicy blaze, is a playable character in Genshin Impact who uses the Pyro element and a claymore. From the region of Liyue, Xinyan has a locally unusual fascination for rock music. Slowly she’s creating a fanbase for herself after the style made its way to Liyue from the Fontaine nation.
Xinyan’s fiery personality, combined with her attempt to bring rock music to Liyue, can sometimes make others afraid of her. However, she does appreciate everyone who comes to see her performances and is simply driven by a passion for the sound. She taught herself the art, fashioned her own instrument and writes her songs. She even once set her stage on fire after a particularly wild performance.
Laura Stahl is the Genshin Impact voice actor for both Barbara and Xinyan.
“Osmanthus wine tastes the same as I remember… But where are those who share the memory?”
Zhongli is a Geo character in Genshin impact whose weapon class is a polearm. His body is simply a human vessel for his true identity of Morax, the Geo Archon. After deciding to experience life as a human in the world of Teyvat, he gave up his god status to become one of the Adepti once again in a mortal disguise. He now works in the Wangsheng Funeral Parlour.
Well-mannered and polite, Zhongli is scared to reveal his identity. He has a vast knowledge of Liyue’s history from his time as their god and remembers details from a past those around him would never know. After a life spent with no need for money, he often finds himself agreeing to discounts or expensive purchases without a second thought. This leaves him needing financial help frequently from the funeral parlour even though he was previously the god of money and even created it in the first place.
Keith Silverstein is the Genshin Impact voice actor for Zhongli. He has an exceptionally long list of voice acting credits for anime and video games. He has lent his voice to some legendary characters on television, such as Professor Oak in Pokemon Evolutions, Hisoka Morow in Hunter x Hunter and Roeg in Attack on Titan.

In the investigation team of the Knights of Favonius, he is the Chief Alchemist and Captain. He also utilises his talents as a scholar and field researcher. More than anything, he wants to learn about the world around him and carefully studies every object and ingredient. The other characters in the game find him profound, mysterious, and intelligent.
It is heavily implied that Albedo was not born but created. He has stated that he has no prior memories of any family and can be seen struggling with social interactions and emotional responses. However, he will always do his best to help.
Khoi Dao isn’t just the Genshin Impact voice actor who gives his talent to Albedo. He is also known for his work as a writer and in the sound department, as well as his voice acting roles in other productions. For TV, Khoi has voiced characters such as Rinto in Pokémon, Gai in Sword Gai: The Animation, and Rei Kiriyama in March Comes in Like a Lion.

“Should we really be off work this early? There is still a lot to do…”
Ganyu, whose name means “sweet rain”, is a bow-wielding Cryo character who works as a secretary for Liyue Qixing. She performs an outrageous amount of work but believes it all to be worthwhile as it serves the wellbeing of all living things within her home region of Liyue.
Ganyu is no regular secretary. After signing a contract with Rex Lapis three thousand years ago, she has been the general secretary not for one person but the whole organisation ever since. She performs all calculations and data research behind every decision. She has been doing this for so long that she has become a little forgetful and gets embarrassed when she occasionally makes a mistake.
Jennifer Losi portrays the English voice of Ganyu in Genshin Impact. Her other roles in the gaming industry have included Hardhat Germ in Psychonauts 2, Naomi Randall in Scarlet Nexus, and Ku in Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
Jennifer has also portrayed characters on television and in anime, such as Oleana in Pokémon, Shinobu Kawajiri in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Edith Carmichael, as well as Evelyn in It Listens from the Radio.
“Hu as in WHO put me in this coffin and Tao as in, I can’t geT OUt! Hehe… No, not funny?”
Hu Tao is a pyro character in Genshin Impact who carries a polearm as her weapon class. As well as a masterful poet whose work is referenced across Liyue, she is also the 77th director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlour. She believes that she keeps the balance of yin and yang in the world by carrying out her duties. These duties include management and fulfilling someone’s last rites.
On the other side of her personality, she loves pranking the other citizens of Tayvat. She is known for being quite annoying and hating when there is nothing to do. Additional playable characters even state that they dislike her in their voice lines. However, some other characters find interest in her mischief. Her work and social self are kept separate, so she stays professional when needed.
Brianna Knickerbocker is the privileged Genshin Impact voice actor who gets to voice Hu Tao, one of the game’s most popular characters. She has also voiced roles in other games, including major parts such as Rosa Cossette D’Elise in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Akira Howard in Astral Chain, and Rin in Catherine: Full Body.
Brianna has also voiced characters for television, mainly anime. There are many of these roles in her repertoire, but some of the most prominent include Elaine in The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed by Light, Rem in Re: Zero, Starting Life in Another World, and Yuna in B: The Beginning.
“The damned will sooner die again than lay a hand on me.”
Xiao, whose name means mountain demon, is an Anemo character who uses a polearm. He is actually Alatus, one of the Adepti who is a god-like creature bound by contract to safeguard the region of Liyue. Currently, Xiao lives in the Wangshu Inn but mostly keeps to himself.
As well as being one of the Adepti with plenty of influence, Alatus is also one of the Yakshas. The Yakshas were beasts who fought the resulting monsters and manifestations of the Archon war. The gods released these monsters due to their remaining hatred after defeat, and Altus is now the only one who remains. Karmic debt made some vanish, and the others turned on each other.
Laila Berzins is the Genshin Impact voice actor who plays Xiao. She has given her voice to many other iconic game characters too. These roles include Overlord Geya’rah in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, Demeter & Persephone in Hades and Dropkick Terra in Smite.

Rosaria, a member of the Church of Favonius, is a Cryo character in Genshin Impact who wields a polearm as her weapon class. She is a sister of the church, but she acts cold towards other people. Shrouded in mystery, nobody can put their finger on her motivations or intentions.
Rosaria’s colleagues consider her very lazy, always the first to leave the church. She doesn’t like working overtime or taking part in boring conversations. Kaeya, on the other hand, believes this means that she is honest and sure of herself. Inside the church, Rosaria acts as the purveyor of justice, taking on missions to eliminate any threat. Initially, she grew up with bandits but was offered a second chance by the Knights of Favonius after they captured her family.
Elizabeth Maxwell has an extensive list of acting and voice acting credits since her debut as Dominique in 2014’s Living Like Fire. She voices Rosaria in Genshin Impact, and some of her other roles in games include Athena in DC Universe Online, Gabrielle Smith in Neverending Nightmares and Urbosoa in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

“Knights and aristocrats share the same cultural heritage, but the knights had the sense to do away with all the superfluous detail.”
Eula Lawrence, also known as the “Spindrift Knight”, carries a claymore and uses the Cryo element. She is the captain of the Reconnaissance Company for the Knights of Favonius and is a descendant of the Lawrence clan. The aristocracy that she grew up in is known for its sinners, which led to her trying to find her own path. She severed all ties with her clan and now spends her time on the battlefield, protecting the region of Mondstadt by defeating its enemies.
Although her family are known for being traitors, all of Eula’s friends and the knights who serve under her devotedly trust her. They also understand her particular sense of humour, which can often be controversial. She is a product of the way she grew up and the abuse she used to face but has managed to make good friends along the way.
Suzie Yeung is from Massachusetts and gives her voice to Eula in Genshin Impact. Most of her voice acting credits are from her roles in anime, including characters such as Yuri in High Rise Invasion, Kaban and other voices in Kemono Friends, and Yomi Takanashi in Black Rock Shooter.
In games other than Genshin Impact, she has also brought life to characters such as Sentai Mulan in Smite, Releiza in Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny, and Nightingale in Henchman Story.
“I have an invisible switch, flick it one way and I’m in normal mode, flick it the other way and I switch to work mode. Surely you must have a switch like that too?”
Yanfei, whose name translates to smoky scarlet, uses the catalyst weapon type and the Pyro element to fight. She was put into the care of Madame Ping after her Adeptus father and human mother left for an adventure and now acts as a legal advisor for the people of Liyue.
Yanfei works hard to protect the legal fairness of contracts and has a firm sense of justice. She is considered the top legal advisor in the region, and her legal abilities are even made use of by Ningguang. She is half illuminated-beast as her father was one of the Adepti. However, she doesn’t consider herself to be of higher importance than any regular human and lives a relatively everyday life for the daughter of a god-like creature.
Lizzie Freeman Voices Yanfei in Genshin Impact and has a long list of other voice acting credits. Some of her roles on television include Ellen in The misfit of Demon King Academy, Trish Una in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and Orlondi in The Seven Deadly Sins, but the list continues from here.

“This scenery is wonderful… surely enough to convince anybody to become a wanderer.”
Kaehehara Kazuha is a playable character who wields a sword and uses the Anemo element. He is a samurai belonging to the Kaedehara Clan who is now a temporary member of The Crux, Beidou’s crew of sailors. He is originally from Inazuma, where people don’t usually travel due to a lack of wealth. Kazuha, on the other hand, did travel, teaching himself how to use a blade and picking up as many skills as he could. Due to his home, he tends to be humble, finding content in life’s simple luxuries like the sun’s warmth.
As Kaehehara Kazuha has spent so much time wandering the wilderness, he has gained the impressive and unique ability to decipher the weather as it begins changing. He can predict rain or lightning before it even begins and can therefore avoid any natural dangers.
The incredible Mark Whitten voices Kazuha, one of Genshin Impact’s most popular characters. In other games, he has played such roles as General Berezin & other voices in Deathloop, Yuzuru Atsuta in Shin Megami Tensei V, and Hugo Pennywort in God Eater 3.

She is so beloved by the people of Inazuma that they have given her the title of Frostflake Heron.
She was originally a playful child. Her mother was ill when she was young, and her brother needed to work hard, so she grew up fast. As they were both signs of nobility, she decided to take up both poetry and the art of sword fighting. She may not have been naturally gifted at either, but it was her perseverance that made her skilled in both as an adult.
Erika Mendez is the talented Genshin Impact voice actor responsible for voicing Kamisato Ayaka. She has many voice acting credits to her name, and some of her most prominent characters in games are Arle Nadja in Puyo Puyo Tetris, Great Fairy Tera in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, and Mia Karnstein in Code Vein.

Sayu is a playable Anemo character from Inazuma in Genshin Impact who carries a claymore. As Sayu desperately wants to grow tall, she uses her ninja abilities to hide. This allows her to be lazy and spend a lot of time sleeping which she believes will help her grow.
Sayu is such a talented ninja that they first must find her when others need her help. Her skills precisely lie in the act of hiding and covering her tracks over her combat abilities. Those who understand her habits are the only ones who stand a chance at finding Sayu. The people of Inazuma are generally unaware of the Shuumatsuban, the secret organisation that she works for, under the Yashiro Commission. Her loyalty to this organisation is extreme as they brought her up since childhood.
Lilypichu (Lily Ki) is the Genshin Impact voice actor who gives a voice to Sayu and is an online influencer, streamer, and artist. Some of her other gaming roles as a voice actor include Io in Paladins: Champions of the Realm, Juniper in Arcade Spirits and Onion Cookie in Cookie Run: Kingdom.

They host their own fireworks show and even used the infamous Crux to ship their goods all over the world of Teyvat.
As an experienced pyrotechnician and the leading vendor for fireworks in Inazuma, Yoimiya is the queen of the summer festival. Due to the success of her work, she is beloved by the people of her region, who will happily help her out when needed.

The Commission is tasked with managing security and military affairs under direct order from the Shogun. She and the rest of the commission have been tasked with confiscating the ability to use visions from all people in the Inazuma region. If someone refuses to give up their vision, Sara will duel them on behalf of the Shogun.
Those who know Sara would refer to her as a stern, ruthless person. She has gained the respect of those she works with, and unlike the generals, she prefers to fight alongside her team instead of just managing them.

This list includes Adult Rose in Resident Evil Village, Claudia Strife in Final Fantasy VII Remake, and UAC Scientist in Doom Eternal.

The Raiden Shogun (Raiden Ei) uses the Electro element as well as her polearm weapon class. She is the body that the current Electro Archon uses in Inazuma to walk around as the people do. As the personification of electricity, she wields incredible power in the quest for her definition of eternity, a place in which nothing changes.
The Shogun acts as Ei’s assistant from afar, doing only what she programs her to do. As Ei has only really given her one purpose, the pursuit of eternity, this leaves the Shogun open to outside influences. She was even manipulated into beginning the decree to have all Electro visions revoked from the people of Inazuma. Ei herself now resides safely in the Plane of Euthymia, so only her vessel will be threatened by the effect of long-term decay.
Anne Yatco gives an incredible voice to the Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact. Her other game roles are Rosie Wong in Wasteland 3, Schoolyard Maeve in Paladins: Champions of the Realm, and Rose, Elena & other characters in Dragon Nest.

Kokomi has a long list of skills. She is adept at fighting, strategizing tactics, and has many opinions regarding military affairs. She is also well-versed when it comes to diplomacy and domestic matters. Much like Jean of the Knights of Favonius, Kokomi often finds herself burning out from the burden of trying to solely run all tasks whilst keeping her people happy. Due to her efforts, she is loved and admired by the people she protects.

He finds it easy to get on with those around him after doing some accidental travel.

Being half Oni, Arataki Itto has horns on his head and is deathly allergic to beans. The Oni have always been around and are well known for their explosive tempers but have only been accepted by human society since the blue Oni made a sacrifice. For the red Oni to be accepted, the blue Oni deliberately troubled humans so the red Oni could step in and save the day. The blue Oni never returned to keep the oath he once promised.

The Watsumi army operates under Kokomi and acts as the main resistance to the vision hunt decree which aims to remove the use of people’s elements.
On the battlefield, Gorou is known to feel a strong sense of adrenaline. He is generally inexperienced due to his young age but is supremely trusted by those around him to do the best job he can.

Shenhe is a Cryo character who makes great use of a polearm as her weapon class. As the daughter of an exorcist couple in a clan of those similar, she had a traumatic childhood experience that led to the Cloud Retainer, an Adepti, taking her away to be his disciple.
Shenhe’s father tried to sacrifice her to a god during childhood in an effort to bring his wife back from the dead. Shenhe successfully managed to defeat the god however this event changed her forever, making her exceptionally aggressive for a time. The Cloud Retainer managed to reduce these feelings however this left Shenhu with other side effects. When her feelings get too intense, she often destroys everything around her in a moment of fury.

She reveals that she is the servant to the Electro Archon, the chief priestess of the Grand Narukami Shrine and owns the Yae Publishing House in Inazuma. The Publishing House is known throughout Tayvat for its “This Novel is Amazing” competition, and Yae Miko is in her happy place when she is reading books there.
Yae Miko’s role in looking after the shrine is one of the most high-profile jobs in Inazuma. She is very kind to those she interacts with when looking after it.

“Hello, Traveller. Call me Yelan. I think you may need my help, and I just so happen to be interested in some information you have. In other words – you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours”.
Yelan, whose name means night orchid, fights with a bow and the Hydro element in Genshin impact. She claims to have a role in the Ministry of Civil Affairs, but there is no proof that she actually works there. Her identity is kept secret by her array of different disguises and characters, making her one of the most elusive and mysterious natives of Liyue. She seems to simply enjoy creating chaos before joining both sides of the conflict that it creates – nobody can tell what side she’s on or what her intentions are.
Yelan finds great value in information. She has compiled two separate lists that she considers of great importance. First is the special attention list, containing the names of all the great powers in Liyue and anyone with special abilities or skills. Secondly, she also created the classified secret intelligence list, which contains the names of anyone who could be a threat to her region. Although there is no immediate demand for this information, she keeps the lists up to date for when the time comes.

Kuki Shinobu is the deputy leader of the Arataki Gang, and she uses the Electro element and her sword in combat. She is from the region of Inazuma, and her entire family works as shrine maidens. Shinobu decided to go against her family tradition and form her own path in the world, much to their disapproval. She tried her hand at various trades and even studied in an effort to find where she belonged, but ultimately, she found this in the Arataki Gang.
Shinobu was attracted to the Gang because it allowed her to live her life as she chose – freely exploring the world. Amongst the Gang, she fills a vital role in keeping the members out of trouble with her knowledge of the law and professional manner. She is so known for her legal advice that the locals of Hanamizaka often ask her for advice too.
