Genshin Impact

Get the details below.

■ Liyue Harbor Characters

Qiqi (voiced by Yukari Tamura)

“I am Qiqi. I am zombie. And I forgot what comes next.”

Genshin Impact

An apprentice and herb gatherer at Bubu Pharmacy.

“Blessed” by the adepti with a body that cannot die, this petite zombie cannot do anything without first giving herself orders to do it.

Qiqi’s memory is like a sieve. Out of necessity, she always carries around a notebook in which she writes anything important that she is sure to forget later.

But on her worst days, she even forgets to look at her notebook…

Keqing (voiced by Eri Kitamura)

“Hmph. Let’s be real here, does Rex Lapis really know everything?”

Genshin Impact

The Yuheng of the Liyue Qixing. Keqing has much to say about Rex Lapis’ unilateral approach to policymaking in Liyue—but in truth, gods admire skeptics such as her quite a lot.

She firmly believes that humanity’s future should be determined by humans themselves, and that they can even do better than the archons and adepti have done for them. In order to prove this, she works harder than anyone else.

■ Mondstadt Characters

Mona (voiced by Konomi Kohara)

“Fate is called as such, for it cannot be changed, nor can it be reversed. It can only but be accepted.”

Genshin Impact

A mysterious young astrologer who proclaims herself to be “Astrologist Mona Megistus,” and who possesses abilities to match the title. Erudite, but prideful.

Though she is often strapped for cash and lives a life of thrift, she is resolved to never use astrology for profit… It is this very resolution that has caused her to constantly fret about money.

The miHoYo forums offer an alternate version of Qiqi’s character profile:

Qiqi (voiced by Yukari Tamura)

“”Gather herbs in the morning. Make medicine in the afternoon. Do light stretches in the evening.” — The daily schedule written in Qiqi’s notebook.

  • Pharmacist, Bubu Pharmacy
  • Vision: Cryo
  • Constellation: Pristina Nola

Genshin Impact

An apprentice and herb gatherer at Bubu Pharmacy, Qiqi is an undead with a bone-white complexion.

She seldom has much in the way of words or emotions.

“Blessed” by the adepti with a body that cannot die, this petite zombie retains her original appearance as a child. Who knows how old she really is…

Zombies must have orders before they can do anything. Somehow Qiqi ended up responsible for giving orders to herself.

Qiqi’s memory is like a sieve. Out of necessity, she always carries around a notebook.

Despite how problematic her memory may be, she is actually quite well-equipped to get through the day: she can use orders to force herself to complete tasks; if she forgets anything, she can look at her notebook for a reminder; and if any task proves difficult, her incredible strength can help solve many problems.

Recently, she has also added a section on “brain training” and “mnemonic methods.” Her notebook is a becoming a true “dummy’s guide” on just about anything.

But on her worst days, she even forgets to look at her notebook…

If while in the mountains of Liyue you see someone bumping into things, walking in circles, or chasing squirrels that don’t exist, it is almost certainly to be the adorable undead herb gatherer. If she seems to be struggling, please lend a helping hand!
