Cyno is a Genshin Impact character that could be released in the Sumeru region update. Find out everything we know about Cyno’s abilities, weapon type, and more.  

The Genshin Impact Sumeru leaks have revealed a number of details about the new region, but details on Cyno still remain scarce. While we’ve known about him since his reveal in the official manga, miHoYo has kept a lot of his details rather quiet. 

While the recent 2.5 leaks have caught the attention of Yae Miko fans, many travelers will be eager to discover more news about Cyno. After all, the Sumeru scholar has remained in the shadow since the game’s release. 


Whether you’re looking to save your Primogems for Genshin Impact’s upcoming 5-star characters, or just wish to learn more about Cyno, and his role within Genshin Impact, then our handy guide has you covered.


Who is Cyno in Genshin Impact?

Cyno first appeared in the Genshin Impact manga alongside Collei.

Cyno is a scholar from Sumeru Academia, a leading institute in arcane arts and historical records. He is also revealed to have a close relationship with Collei – one of the main protagonists of the official Genshin Impact manga. 

The Sumeru scholar helps seal Collei’s archon residue, which enables the otherwise ordinary girl to unleash devastating powerful abilities. In the manga, Cyno initially comes off as cold, but his willingness to help others is what makes him such a reliable character.
