Hoyoverse’s latest Fontaine trailer confirms Genshin Impact’s Wriothesley along with a slew of other characters. He seems to fit right into the ‘tall, dark, and handsome’ category, and we’re sure his kit will be formidable, judging by his harsh black clothing and chain-link accessories.

There’s plenty more to discover about Genshin Impact’s Fontaine region ahead of its release, too – check out who Genshin Impact’s Focalors and Genshin Impact’s Charlotte are and grab all the latest Genshin Impact codes to start saving those primos.

Who is Genshin Impact’s Wriothesley?

Wriothesley looks like a cross between Honkai Star Rail’s Sampo and a Hot Topic store – and we’re very excited. He has swish black hair, ear piercings, and a careful demeanor. We got a first look at him in the most recent Fontaine trailer, and he looks good. Very good.

In the trailer, we see him sitting at a table next to a small character named Sigewinne, who offers him a drink. He doesn’t take it, though, after hovering his hand over it for a moment. From this snippet, it doesn’t appear that he works with the main justice system of Fontaine – especially given his neat wolf-shaped insignia.

Hoyoverse is yet to confirm any information, but rumors in the leak community say that he’s a five-star with the cryo element. Other details have changed many times pertaining to his weapon and whether he’s only a limited character, or whether he joins the standard pool post-release.

Wriothesley’s voice actors are Daisuke Ono and Joe Zieja.

Genshin Impact’s Wriothesley release date speculation

For now, all we can say is that Wriothesley will release in one of the 4.0 patches of Genshin Impact, in the Fontaine updates. Given that there are quite a lot of new faces in his debut trailer, we don’t know if he’ll have a 2023 release date, or further down the line.

If you’re a Hoyo fan like us, why not grab these Honkai Star Rail codes to give you a nice boost in the game, while pulling for Honkai Star Rail’s Luocha, Honkai Star Rail’s Yukong, or if you’re saving for Honkai Star Rail’s Blade.
