Kaveh– a renowned architect from Sumeru who perhaps cares a bit too much about too many things. He is an aesthete troubled by reality.
Kaveh is a Dendro melee character who can detonate Dendro Cores and heal himself with his skills. Judging from his kits, he seems to be a rare 4-star DPS character.
His Elemental Skill can deal AoE Dendro DMG and will cause all Dendro Cores within that area to burst immediately. After his Talent, “An Architect’s Undertaking,” is unlocked, when attacks from Dendro Cores hit Kaveh, he will also recover HP based on his Elemental Mastery.
Kaveh’s Elemental Burst will allow his Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attacks to temporarily be converted to Dendro DMG, and increases their attack AoE. During this time, all Dendro Cores created by your own party members through Bloom reactions will deal additional DMG when they burst.

Normal Attack: Schematic Setup
Normal Attack: Uses Mehrak to perform up to 4 consecutive attacks.
Charged Attack: Drains Stamina over time to perform continuous slashes. At the end of the sequence, performs a more powerful slash.
Elemental Skill: Artistic Ingenuity
Use Mehrak’s mapping ability for offensive purposes, initiating a radial scan that deals AoE Dendro DMG. It will also scan all Dendro Cores in its AoE and cause them to immediately burst.
Elemental Burst: Painted Dome
Completely unleashes Mehrak’s energy and creates a cubic scanned space, dealing AoE Dendro DMG to all opponents within it, causing all Dendro Cores in its AoE to immediately burst, and granting Kaveh the following enhanced combat abilities for a specific duration:
✦ Increases Kaveh’s Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack AoE, and converts his attack DMG to Dendro DMG that cannot be overridden.
✦ All Dendro Cores created by all your own party members through Bloom reactions will deal additional DMG when they burst.
✦ Increases Kaveh’s resistance to interruption.
These effects will be canceled once Kaveh leaves the field.
Passive Talent: An Architect’s Undertaking
When DMG dealt by a Dendro Core (including DMG from Burgeon and Hyperbloom) hits Kaveh, Kaveh will regain HP equal to 300% of his Elemental Mastery. This effect can be triggered once every 0.5s.
In a land brimming with as much talent as Sumeru, one is practically spoiled for choice when it comes to designers. But when one speaks of architects, few are those who will not subconsciously think of “Kaveh.”
The Kshahrewar graduate was once named the greatest architect in several decades and is known as the Light of Kshahrewar. Kaveh himself, however, is unfortunately unmoved by this title.
Such lovely names and titles are, to him, acknowledgment and shackles both. For example, Kaveh’s insolvency remains a matter of shame for him to this day. A person with little to no standing could just admit to such a thing, but a famous architect cannot. In fact, such undue candor might result in a crisis of reputation for him. So, Kaveh cannot but avoid this topic to save face, and be forced to masquerade as a man living in leisure.
Thanks to his abilities as a designer and his astounding aesthetic attainments, people believe in his talent, and thus, in his facade also. After all, what could possibly trouble Kaveh, architect extraordinaire?
