Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou

Genshin's Heizou is a character that has been mentioned multiple times in the game but is yet to be released. Fans have been waiting for a long for his arrival in the game, and now an official reveal has come as a relief for the fans.

Heizou is Sara's colleague and a (self-proclaimed) detective from the Tenryou commission who has been mentioned several times by other characters in the game. Genshin Heizou was first mentioned in the voice lines of Kamisato Ayaka and his distant elder cousin Kano Nana.

Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou - the Analytical Harmony is the detective of the Tenryou Commission, the first male catalyst, and is the commander of the Anemo element. It has been claimed by the leaker that players will get to see Shikanoin Heizou in the future 2.8 update.

Shikanoin Heizou is a young detective from the Tenryou Commission, who is free-spirited and unruly, but cheerful and lively. Kamisato Ayato while talking about Heizou says, "Doushin Shikanoin has admirable wit and insight. While he is unfettered and unrestrained in demeanor, one should not dismiss his talents. The Tenryou Commission is incredibly fortunate to have such a man in their ranks."

Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou drip marketing

Recently leakers shared a drip marketing artwork for Shikanoin Heizou and soon after the leak, Shikanoin Heizou was officially revealed by the devs.

As per the given description, Shikanoin Heizou is "Analytical Harmony, Detective of the Tenryou Commission, a young detective from the Tenryou Commission. Free-spirited and unruly, but cheerful and lively."

At first glance, Heizou seems like an ordinary young man, but he is actually the undisputed number one detective in the Tenryou Commission.

Not only does he possess a wild imagination, but he also has a mind for meticulous logic and reasoning, as well as an extraordinary sense of intuition when it comes to solving cases.

Whenever a crime occurs, his colleagues rely on experience to help them with handling the case, but Heizou brings in an out-of-the-box perspective and gets straight to the crux of the case.

People are impressed by his razor-sharp intuition, thinking that his reasoning ability and efficiency are godlike. Here, Heizou would simply reply with his signature smile: "I don't know, maybe this is something that even the gods can't do!"

Other than the official info on Heizou, datamiers were also able to dig up some info on the best Genshin Heizou build, including its ascension mats, artifacts, talent level up mats, team comps, and more.

Genshin Impact Heizou Release Date

Since the Shikanoin Heizou character has been revealed officially and miHoYo has already announced who all are going to appear in the 2.7 update, it is safe to say that either June 22, 2022 or three weeks later July 20 will be the official Shikanoin Heizou release date.

When it comes to Genshin Heizou's rarity, it's been speculated that he'll be a 4-star character who'll most likely appear in the 2.8 patch.

If the leaked data is to be believed, both Uba and Uncle Chasm (trusted leakers) indicate that Heizou's release is scheduled for the Genshin 2.8 patch, suggesting that players will have to wait until the 2.8 patch (June 22), which is likely to be the final 2.x patch before the 3.0 patch.

"Heizou will be in 2.8 as the final (currently known) Inazuma char," Uba revealed.

There are both possibilities that Heizou will be released with the 2.8 launch or will probably come with the second banner of 2.8. However, leakers claim the first case.

However, miHoYo is yet to reveal Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou's abilities.

Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou abilities

We have had multiple leaks regarding Heizou in the past, however, leakers have not revealed much on Genshin Impact Heizou abilities, except for the fact that he will be the first male catalyst who can jump mid-air like Kazuha and has a "punching" animation.

Now even though we don't have much info on Heizou abilities, leakers did give some hints on Heizou's weapon.

Genshin Impact Heizou Weapon

Jitte will be one of Heizou's weapons, according to prominent leaker @lumie, but it will not be his primary weapon. Heizou declares himself a top detective, therefore it's only reasonable that he'd utilize one of these one-of-a-kind weapons.

Yet, the leaks on Heizou's weapon are yet to be verified from other sources as we also have others claiming that Heizou can possibly be the Catalyst user.

Furthermore, we have leaked information on Heizou's height, as the leaker claimed that he will be the smallest Genshin male character while discussing Heizou's model and comparing him to some of the other short males in Genshin Impact.

"In order of Height," it was said.

  1. Arther
  2. Gorou
  3. Xiao
  4. Heizou

Heizou's height is less than 160 cm because he is supposed to be shorter than Xiao, who is currently 5'3" (160 cm). However, it is unclear how much of a height discrepancy exists between the two characters.

Genshin Impact About Heizou lines

We don't have all of the Heizou lore yet, but we do have five Genshin Impact characters who have spoken what they think about the new Anemo guy - the notorious "About Shikanoin Heizou lines."

  • Kamisato Ayaka About Heizou

Mr. Shikanoin belongs to the Tenryou Commission, just like

Kujou. He is very... principled, sometimes eve more determinedly so than Miss Kujou. The only thing is, when it comes to the question of which matters should be governed by his principles, I believe only Mr. Shikanoin himself knows the answer...

  • Kujou Sara About Heizou

Shikanoin and I may be colleagues, but I have few positive words to say about him. He seems preoccupied with his personal schemes while official duties take second place. The only reason I have not sought to bring him into line so far is that his investigations deliver results... *sigh* He is such a headache.

  • Sangonomiya Kokomi About Heizou

Initially, I was astonished to see anyone coming to Watatsumi Island wearing a Tenryou Commission uniform. A Tenryou Commission samurai would never be that brazen, and a Tenryou Commission spy would never be that conspicuous. Shortly after, I discovered that he was a self-proclaimed "detective" by the name of Shikanoin, and that he took no interest in military, government, or commercial affairs. Instead, he seemed to have arrived for a bit of sightseeing. As such, I set a few eyes on him, but refrained from taking any action to remove him from the island. Be sure to talk to him if the chance ever presents itself.

  • Thoma About Heizou

Ho, that guy is a detective for the Tenryou Commission. He seems to have his own way of doing things — not the easiest person to get along with. Also... Any situation that involves a detective is probably not one that's going to end well. I think I'll keep on giving him a wide berth.

  • Gorou About Heizou

You mean that sneaky detective that never seems to actually be working on a case? Well, no one from the Shogunate can be fully trusted, so I'll be keeping my eyes and ears on him! On a separate note, he does have some talent for investigation. But how can we know that this isn't all part of some nefarious scheme? Hmm. Only time will tell, I suppose.

These were the complete details about Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou, including its release date, lore, abilities, and more that have been revealed so far. However, some of the data has come from leaks that are subject to change.

Hence, players should think about it with a grain of salt as miHoYo can at any time decide to make changes in the main game.
