Who is Collei in Genshin Impact & Is She Playable?

Collei might appear in the game soon.

January 6, 2022

Genshin Impact might be adding at some point a new playable character called Collei – Who’s this character and where is she from?

Who is Collei in Genshin Impact?

Collei is a character from the Genshin Impact manga. Before miHoYo announced the game version of Genshin Impact on June 8, 2019, a manga was already published since 2018.

Collei first appears in chapter 2 of the Genshin Impact manga. I won’t be going into spoilers regarding her actions in the story as the manga is free on the Genshin Official site, so you don’t have any reason not to read it yourself. You’ll learn a lot on the lore too, and it’ll be much better than reading a summary.

Moreover, Collei is, in a sense, the protagonist of the manga as the story mainly revolves around her. It would make sense for her to appear in the game at some point. Especially as she’s supposed to be in Sumeru after the manga’s events, and it’s the next region to be added in the game.

Will Collei become playable in Genshin Impact?

Talented data miner Dimbreath noted that there was data regarding Collei in the files for Genshin Impact Version 2.5’s Beta Test.

[2.5 – Beta] Collei:They left an entry about one of Collei Elemental Burst gadgets. There’s not much more information about this that I have digged of so far.

This doesn’t necessarily mean Collei will be playable anytime soon though. Don’t forget that Shenhe, who was just released, was among the characters data mined at release over a year ago.

Furthermore, every playable Genshin Impact character either has a Vision or has special circumstances that let them use Elemental Power, like being an Archon. Collei in the manga doesn’t have a Vision. and she’s not an Archon either. However, the manga takes place several months before the arrival of the Traveler in Mondstadt/the start of the game’s story. It’s entirely possible Collei received a Vision since then.
