HoYoverse Introduction

The official Genshin Impact account introduced Mika with the following blurb on the HoYoverse website as well as other official Genshin Impact channels.

“I recruited Mika into the expedition team to hone his combat skills. As for why he reports directly to me… Well, since Jean isn’t with us, I needed someone trustworthy to deal with all the odd errands, hahaha.”

— Varka’s “explanation” to “Alder Knight” Frederica after a session of drinking.

Mika, who is a member of the Knights of Favonius Reconnaissance Company, always diligently fulfills all the duties that come his way.

Setting up tents, lighting fires for cooking, repairing equipment… Even Hertha, the logistics captain, has nothing but praise for Mika’s excellent efficiency.

Mika’s dedication to work is not due to a weak character or his inability to say no, but instead stems from the value that he attaches to teamwork, and a genuine desire to learn from his experienced colleagues.

“Helping everyone as much as possible benefits the entire team too!”

Mika’s favorite pastime is closely linked to his primary duty as a front-line surveyor.

That is: surveying unexplored regions, recording topographical data, and drawing accurate and effective maps.

“There is an abundance of resources here, but it is surrounded by monsters. Take note to exercise caution.”

Mika, whose dream is to become an expert cartographer, adds another annotation to the new version of the military map he is designing.
