Genshin Impact 2.2: New Character Thoma Announced

The official Twitter handle of Genshin Impact has announced an all-new character today, known as Thoma. This was quite a surprise for many fans as many weren’t aware of which 4-star character will be arriving in the 2.2 Update. Leaks had only suggested that Yae will be the 5-star character that will be a part of the game.

Is Thoma a 4-star character?

Now, miHoYo has made it official that the next character arriving in the update will be Thoma. Thoma will likely be the 4-star character arriving in the upcoming update’s banner. While there is no confirmation regarding whether he is 4-star or 5-star, considering Yae is a 5-star character, Thoma will likely be the 4-star one.

Genshin Impact 2.2 Thoma- Release Date and Lore

Thoma will be arriving in the game in the 2.2 Update, which will be arriving six weeks after the 2.1 Update. The 2.1 Update goes live on 1st September so we can expect 2.2 to drop around mid-October. Here is the lore and introduction of the character.

Thoma, who was born in Mondstadt, now lives in Inazuma, where he is the Kamisato Clan’s housekeeper. He’s also a well-known “fixer” in Inazuma.

Perhaps influenced by the relaxed and happy atmosphere of his hometown, Thoma is very good at socializing. Although he is an outlander, he has built an unexpectedly powerful network of people in Inazuma.

He is an affable person by nature and can easily get involved in various topics and establish relationships with various people. When it is time to defend the rights and interests of the Yashiro Commission, he will also put his smile away and show his serious side.

Occasionally, however, Thoma will sit alone in a corner of the Yashiro Commission and think about matters concerning himself.

He is an attentive, friendly, and sociable person who cares for all animals and comrades, but perhaps he also feels some unspeakable homesickness.
