A new Sumeru character, Sethos, has been officially revealed as a playable character in Genshin Impact! Check out the drip marketing for Sethos and the official reveal posted on HoYoverse accounts.

“Wisdom's Measure” Sethos Reveal

Sethos is a completely new character hailing from Sumeru. He has only one official appearance, and it was in the trailer for Version 4.6. That means we can expect him to play some part in the upcoming Story Quest in that version.

As revealed by the Sethos drip marketing, he is an Electro character. His Constellation is “Basileos Delta,” meaning “Delta of the Basileus.” He's expected to be a 4-star character but no official information about this has surfaced as of yet.

When will Sethos be playable in Genshin Impact?

Sethos will be playable in Genshin Impact Version 4.7, scheduled for June 5, 2024.

Who are the Sethos Voice Actors?

Sethos' VA for the English voiceover is Zeno Robinson. His previous roles include Hawks from My Hero Academia, Junpei Iori from Persona 3 Reload, and Vane from Granblue Fantasy.

Sethos is voiced by Shoya Chiba in the Japanese voiceover. His notable previous work include Kiyotaka Ayanokoji from Classroom of the Elite, Tahomaru in Dororo, and Shinei Nouzen in 86

Sethos Official Introduction – Visitor from the Sea of Sand, Profound Providence

Inexperienced travelers often find themselves trapped by the vast, boundless sea of sand. Were it not for the timely guidance of a kind soul, their journey of exploration might have come to an untimely end, cruelly cut short. Many of those who were lost and returned to their companions on the road all had the same name upon their lips: Sethos.

A great sense of direction, enthusiastic and talkative… These are all common impressions among those who have been on the receiving end of Sethos's guidance. And it is quite true. As a desert-dweller, Sethos knows the paths between the various oases like the back of his hand, and his mastery of the techniques of navigation — such as using the sun's position to calculate direction — runs even deeper. As a personal interest, Sethos enjoys traveling by foot between desert and rainforest, and the navigational skills he's acquired are a product of his personal experiences doing so. As for being enthusiastic and talkative, by speaking with Eremites chance met on the road or listening to the fascinating anecdotes of hapless scholars rescued from swamp and marsh, not only can he broaden his knowledge and horizons, but also have a lot of fun. For Sethos, that is where the joy of the journey lies.

Perhaps it is because of this personality of his, but regardless of locale, from desert to rainforest, he always has those he can regard as friends. One researcher he met at Caravan Ribat, who had developed a deep admiration for Sethos after being struck by his distinctive understanding of the Akademiya and its knowledge system, once even went so far as to suggest that Sethos sit the Akademiya's entrance exam.

“Be a student at the Akademiya? It would be pretty fun to see how the Akademiya's teachings differ from what the old folks say back home. I'll consider it.”

Sethos will be a playable character in Genshin Impact Version 4.7, scheduled on June 5, 2024 Server Time.
