The new character is named Shikanoin Heizou. He’s defined as “Analytical Harmony” and described as a “Detective of the Tenryou Commission”.

We also hear from Kamisato Ayato about him:

“Doushin Shikanoin has admirable wit and insight. While he is unfettered and unrestrained in demeanor, one should not dismiss his talents. The Tenryou Commission is incredibly fortunate to have such a man in their ranks.”

This announcement is perhaps surprising because new characters are usually revealed after an update goes live, but HoYoverse has suspended updates due to the ongoing lockdowns in China.

At the moment, there are two more pending characters that have been revealed for 2.7, Yelan & Kuki Shinobu, so unless HoYoverse condenses the updates, it’s likely Shikanoin Heizou won’t come until 2.8.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
