Genshin Impact is known for bringing a variety of characters to its game. While some are normal humans with intriguing backstories, others take their inspiration from existing folklore and blend into the world of the game. Gorou is one such character.
We first saw a peek of him during the 2.0 live stream. Since then, his appearance in the story has been highly anticipated.
Who is Gorou?
Gorou was introduced during the Archon Quest Stillness, the Sublimation of Shadow. He is the general of the resistance against Baal’s Vision Hunt Decree and is in search of like-minded people to join the cause. During his brief time in the story, he is seen to be serious about his task. When faced with the Tenryou Commission and their overbearing forces, instead of backing down, he stood his ground.
While there isn’t much information available about him in the game, other characters have a lot to say.
According to Kazuha, who spent some time with the resistance, Gorou is the kind of person he can get along with. He describes him as kind and virtuous, someone who shares in the highs and lows of his subordinates. Kokomi, the leader of the resistance, shares these sentiments and describes her general as sincere.
Since Gorou was a part of the Inazuma story quest only for a short while, there is little known about his gameplay at the moment.
What we do know is that he’ll be the first Geo bow user. There is still much debate about whether he’s a 5-star character or not. But whatever it is, we can predict that since the Genshin Twitter account posted about him, we should see him in the game very soon.
