Genshin Impact Shenhe Character Demo & Collected Miscellany trailers reveals new lore

The Shenhe Character Demo trailer is pretty tame when it comes to direction and screenplay compared to Klee’s or Ganyu’s. It doesn’t have an abundance of effects like with Raiden Shogun’s trailer either.

However, the trailer teases the upcoming Archon Story Quest. Shenhe mentions how her master, Cloud Retainer, warned her of the Abyss Order’s increased activity recently.

The trailer also has a pretty funny Shenhe and Chongyun scene which made the oneeshota and obashota tags trends on Japanese Twitter.

You can watch the Character Demo trailer for Shenhe below with the Japanese and English dubs.

Shenhe is part of the same family of exorcists as Chongyun, and she’s his “aunt”. Chongyun calls Shenhe “oba” in the Japanese trailer. There are different meanings to “Oba” depending on which kanji you use. In this case, Chongyun says 叔母, which means aunt. That’s also what he says in the English dubbed version.
