Today has been a monumental day when it comes to Genshin Impact leaks involving Sumeru's characters. Numerous new screenshots, splash art, and models have been leaked, so it's worth covering the four new characters that we found out about today:

  • Kusanali (The Dendro Archon)
  • Tighnari
  • Dori
  • Collei

These characters have been subject to various leaks over the past few weeks. Some of them ended up being reliable, while others turned out to be fake.

In this case, it's worth checking out the genuine character model and splash art leaks.

Genshin Impact Sumeru leaks: Four new characters

Kusanali (The Dendro Archon)

The first character discussed in this article is Kusanali (also known as the Dendro Archon). Given her importance in Sumeru, Genshin Impact players have often discussed her before these leaks.

Some older leaks have described her as bearing a slight resemblance to Paimon. They also mentioned her having a model close to that of a child. A few of the latter leaks even stated that she had her own unique model type in-between the child and teen models.

More important than any of that is this recent leak actually shows users what she looks like. Gamers no longer have to rely on vague text leaks to see what the new characters appear as.

It's worth mentioning that the following three characters are all slated to be playable in Genshin Impact 3.0.


Tighnari has been described as having long ears and a big poofy tail. Based on this leak, that would be a pretty accurate assessment of his character design.

One leaker even rated other people's fanart of his described traits, all of which appear to line up with what Genshin Impact users see above.

He is a five-star Dendro Bow user from Sumeru. It isn't yet known in which phase of Version 3.0 will he be playable. Gamers also do not have any footage of his kit yet.

There are only past crumbs (that may or may not be true) available to check out, along with some new text leaks.


The above leak shows what Dori, the new four-star Electro Claymore user, looks like in Genshin Impact 3.0. Some users have joked that she's one of the few female playable characters to wear pants.

More importantly, it's worth mentioning that the purple familiar next to her does have a 3D model in the game, and can be seen in the following tweet.

These screenshots give us a fair idea of her personality, although there sadly aren't any videos featuring her in Sumeru (at least, not at the time of this writing).


The final leaked Sumeru character to talk about is Collei. She looks noticeably different here compared to the official Genshin Impact manga.

Apart from looking more mature now, she has her mascot character next to her (some leaks mentioned that she would have one similar to Gouba or Baron Bunny).

Collei is a four-star Dendro Bow user expected to be playable in Genshin Impact 3.0. As with the previous characters, it is yet to be known which banner she is in.
