Genshin Impact Shikanoin Heizou Details Revealed

Shikanoin Heizou is a 4-Star Anemo Catalyst user, and a young prodigy detective from the Tenryou Commission. He's described as a burst damage dealer who gains stacks using his Elemental Skill by triggering constant Swirl reactions, then releases a huge Anemo damage-dealing vacuum with his Elemental Burst.

His normal attack, "Fudou Style Martial Arts," deals up to five Anemo attacks. His Elemental Skill, "Heartstopper Strike," deals a powerful punch of Anemo damage that can launch opponents backwards. Every time it is used, the next Heartstopper Strike deals more damage and has a higher area of effect (up to 4 times). Finally, his Elemental Burst "Windmuster Kick" creates an Anemo vacuum that pulls in enemies and items and deals AoE Anemo damage.

To level up his talents and abilities, players are going to need Onikabuto, Insignias, Runic Fangs, Transcience Scrolls, and "The Meaning of Aeons." Heizou is described as an unorthodox civil servant, who doesn't care for the bureaucracy of his job despite appearing polite and well-mannered. As the first male Catalyst user, his fun character lore and exciting kit are sure to make him a hit amongst players upon his Version 2.8 release.
