Jean (right) is the older sister of Barbara (left).
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword

The acting grandmaster of the Knights of Favonius, Jean puts everything on the line to protect Mondstadt. She barely gives herself time to rest from the nation’s political affairs, although she wouldn’t have it any other way as she tries to maintain her legacy.

That same selfless personality translates onto the battlefield. Jean specializes as a tank in Genshin Impact, where she can take a lot of damage then heal a massive amount of health with her Elemental Burst. She’s also great at locking enemies in place with her Elemental Skill.

Kazuha is one of Genshin Impact’s best characters, period.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword

Kaedehara Kazuha has no fixed address on Teyvat. A wandering samurai from a famed clan, he has found himself onboard Beidou’s crew. His politeness can be quite in contrast to the rest of The Crux, but being more in touch with nature out at sea has put Kazuha at ease.

Kazuha puts his samurai heritage to good use, utilizing a mix of Anemo crowd control and plunging attacks to set up his allies as well as dish out the pain himself.

Fun Sayu fact: Her English voice actor is popular Twitch streamer LilyPichu.
  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Claymore

Sayu isn’t your typical ninja. Instead of lurking in the shadows to hunt enemies, she puts her powers to work to sleep whenever she can in an attempt to grow just that little bit taller. She is also affiliated with the Shuumatsuban, which is part of Inazuma’s Yashiro Commission.

Despite her love of sleep Sayu does have some combat ability, mostly as a damage-soaking tank. She can roll herself up into a ball to take less damage with her Skill, as well as giving her party a big heal on her Elemental burst.

Sucrose’s experiments have been a wild success for Genshin Impact players who use her.
  • Rarity: 4-star
  • Weapon: Catalyst

Sucrose is an alchemist based in Mondstadt, helping out Albedo as his assistant. With a particular interest in bio-alchemy, she tries to imbue living objects with extra power ⁠— experiencing mixed results. Despite her curiosity, she is a recluse and very shy.

Sucrose is a popular support in Genshin Impact thanks to her accessibility as a four-star. She can also hold multiple charges of her Elemental Skill unlike most other characters, which when combined with a weapon like Sacrificial Fragments allows her to clump together enemies and deal big splash damage with Swirl.

Anemo is the first element you can imbue your character with in Genshin Impact.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Sword

The original Traveler, Anemo is the first element you harness the powers of after dropping into Teyvat. After completing the Prologue you’ll become attuned to Wind thanks to the Statues of the Seven.

The Anemo variant of the Traveler ⁠⁠has access to a vortex that can hold enemies in place while applying Swirl, as well as a massive tornado with the same effect. It’s great for combining with other elemental reactions like Pyro, Hydro, or Cryo to spread damage far and wide.


Venti abilitymiHoYo
Venti uses the power of the Anemo Archon himself to set a howling gale across Teyvat.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Bow

Venti is the human form of the Anemo Archon. Also known as Barbatos, he now takes on a rather unassuming form as a happy-go-lucky bard that loves his wine. He makes a few appearances throughout the main story, mostly at Mondstadt’s Angel’s Share.

On the battlefield, Venti is a formidable Anemo support, using his abilities to throw enemies into the air and lock them in place to generate huge elemental reactions.


Xiao during Elemental Burst in Genshin ImpactmiHoYo
Xiao’s Elemental Burst is one of the strongest in Genshin Impact.
  • Rarity: 5-star
  • Weapon: Polearm

Xiao is a Liyue adeptus, and the only remaining member of the five Yakshas that defended the region from demonic spirits thousands of years ago. The “Conqueror of Demons” now finds himself isolating from modern-day Liyue so as to not burden others with his karmic debt.

Unlike the other Anemo characters, Xiao is renowned for his hard-hitting DPS. Once he pops his Elemental Burst, he can spam plunging attacks to deal a huge amount of damage in a wide area, making him arguably Genshin’s best melee carry.

That’s every Anemo character in Genshin Impact that we know of — so far. We’ll be sure to update this as miHoYo reveals more. For now, check out some of our other Genshin Impact guides:
