As for the new 4.5 Genshin Impact characters, the only totally new one is Chiori. She ended up being teased back in January 2024. She will be a five-star Geo character who wields a sword. Brittany Lauda voices her in English, while Ayane Taketatsu plays her in Japanese. When she attacks, she’ll summon an automaton named Tamoto to assist her. There will also be a Cisoria Chapter: Act 1 story quest associated with her. The first half of the banners will feature Chiori and Itto. The second half will have Neuvillette and Kazuha.
