Thoma is an upcoming 4-star Pyro character that will be coming to Genshin Impact in a future Inazuma update, but a few details have been officially revealed ahead of his official release. 

Thoma is one of the Genshin Impact characters that will eventually be made available as part of the game’s Inazuma update. While many players will be saving their hard-earned Primogems for Baal (Raiden Shogun), Kokomi and Yae Miko – miHoYo has finally revealed a number of details surrounding Thoma.

The upcoming Pyro character is the chief retainer of the Kamisato Clan and a close friend of the clan’s daughter, Ayaka. Thoma is known for his friendly personality and willingness to help others in need. While miHoyo has yet to showcase Thoma’s abilities, we now have a number of leaks that have uncovered some major details. 


If you’re looking to add Thoma to your Genshin Impact roster in the game, we’ve got all the latest information about him below.


Thoma release date in Genshin Impact

MiHoYo has yet to confirm a release date for Thoma, but we do know that he will be added to the game in the 2.2 update. This news comes from renowned Genshin Impact leaker, @Zeniiet, who is known for their reputable leaks. 

This means Thoma will likely release after Baal and Kokomi have been added. Baal was added to the game on September 1, 2021, and Kokomi’s Banner will be released on September 21, 2021. Thoma will likely follow soon after. 


Thoma abilities in Genshin Impact

Thanks to the recent Genshin Impact 2.2 beta, we now have a number of details for Thoma’s abilities. In fact, Honey Impact has given a breakdown of his Normal Attack, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst. Renowned Genshin Impact leaker, @abc64real, has also leaked Thoma’s gameplay.

Normal Attack: Swiftshatter Spear

  • Normal Attack: Thoma performs up to four consecutive spear strikes.
  • Charged Attack: Thoma consumes a portion of the stamina bar and lunges forward, dealing damage to all foes in his path.
  • Plunging Attack: Thoma plunges from mid-air, striking the ground below and dealing AoE damage to all nearby enemies.

Elemental Skill: Blazing Blessing

Thoma plunges his spear into the ground and performs a deadly kick that deals AoE Pyro damage. Blazing Blessing also unleashes a Blazing Barrier, which allows Thoma to absorb a set amount of damage.

Elemental Burst: Crimson Ooyoroi

Thoma spins his spear, slicing through his foes with scorching flames that inflict AoE Pyro damage to all nearby foes. While in this state, Thoma (active characters) will Fiery Collapses that deal AoE Pyro damage and summon Blazing Barriers.


Thoma weapon in Genshin Impact

Thoma weapon type Genshin Impact
Thoma appears to be wielding a polearm.

Thoma appears to be holding a polearm in his official artwork, but this could still change before his official 2.2 release. Thoma will be the second Inazuma character alongside Baal (Raiden Shogun), who also wields this deadly weapon type. 

Both Hu Tao and Xiangling are two Pyro characters that famously wield polearms, so it certainly would be a befitting trend for Thoma.

Thoma Genshin Impact character trailer

Thoma doesn’t currently have his own gameplay trailer, but the chief retainer can be seen in the Kamisato Ayaka: Camellia in Winter Snow character demo. It’s here where we found out that Thoma actively spars with Ayaka, to help improve the Frostflake Heron’s deadly combat techniques. 


As the chief retainer of the Kamisato Clan, Thoma is obviously well versed in both the region’s politics and characters. Thoma’s official gameplay trailer will release when the 2.2 update is revealed. 

Thoma story in Genshin Impact

Thoma story quest
Thoma’s story quest has yet to be revealed.

Thoma is known for both his loyalty and kindness, often helping those that find themselves in the foreign lands of the Inazuma region. According to the 2.0 livestream, Thoma is “a rather special character. He has blond hair, different from most other Inazuma characters and his identity is naturally a bit of a mystery of its own.”

The majority of this “mystery” comes from the fact that Thoma was born in Mondstadt, but the reasons surrounding his arrival in Inazuma remain unknown. Since then, Thoma has loyally served the Kamisato clan and helped foreign travelers acclimate to life in Inazuma.

Thoma’s voice actors have obviously been known for a while as the character has been in-game since the Inzauma update. 

Thoma’s VA’s can be found below:

  • English VA: Christian Banas
  • Chinese VA: Pei Zhang
  • Japanese VA: Masakazu Morita
