Genshin Impact Leaks Hints at New Architect Character Named Kavi

A new Genshin Impact leak reveals that a popular Sumeru Architect may be joining the game’s playable roster for the foreseeable future.

After months of speculation, Genshin Impact finally confirmed the arrival of a new nation named Sumeru in the next major update. So far, developer HoYoverse has introduced three main regions to the game, Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma Islands.

Even if the arrival of a new Genshin Impact nation seems to be the main focus of the update, there also seems to be a lot of hype around the new Sumeru characters. Probably the most exciting thing about the upcoming additions to the playable roster is the fact that many of them will come equipped with Dendro Vision.

A brand new Genshin Impact leak apparently reveals more information about a new character that will be joining the playable roster for the foreseeable future. A credible leaker by the name of GenshinBLANK has revealed that the upcoming updates will introduce an architect into the playable roster and his name is Kavi. He is the creator of the famous Alcazarzaray Palace which is a unique place in the new region of Sumeru. Kavi is also known to be the roommate of a popular Genshin Impact character named Al-Haitham who has been leaked several times so far. Al-Haitham’s name is based on an Arab scientist named Ibn al-Haytham, which makes sense since the entire region of Sumeru is based on Southwest Asian and Middle Eastern cultures.

Another popular leaker, Ubatcha1, mentioned that the architect’s name is still not set in stone and his name may be changed in the future. His roommate Al-Haitham’s appearance is apparently based on a popular Honkai Impact 3rd character named ‘Su’. This won’t be the first time that developer HoYoverse has taken inspiration from its Genshin Impact honkai list characters as popular Genshin Impact characters like Venti, Raiden Shogun, and Yae Miko all have their respective counterparts in the other game.

As for Kavi’s release date, the only thing confirmed is that he won’t be part of the next Genshin Impact Version 3.0 from HoYoverse has already revealed the three characters that will join the playable roster in the first update of Sumeru, Tighnari, Collei, and Dori. All three characters will most likely be spread across both banner cycles for Update 3.0.

Players are expecting Tighnari to appear on the first banner of the update as he is confirmed to be the only new five-star character in 3.0, which means that at least one of the banner cycles will feature a replay. A few leaks have hinted that players will be able to acquire the Dendro Collei character for free by completing a few quests in 3.0.

Genshin Impact is available on Mobile, PC, PS4 and PS5.
