Genshin Impact’s next big update is around the corner, and now developer miHoYo has detailed a playable character in the update – the unpredictable Tartaglia.

Here’s a brief description of Tartaglia, from the official game forums:

Warm and friendly one minute, ruthless killer the next… His shifting and unpredictable personality can leave those around him at a loss for words to describe him. But in rare, private moments, he dispenses with titles, casts off his armor and the layers of intrigue that come with it, and show his authentic self.

His name is Tartaglia, and he is devoted to the thrill and the physical feel of battle.

Don’t be under any illusion as to what he might be thinking or what his intentions are. Just remember this: Behind that innocent, childlike exterior lies a finely honed instrument of war.

Like a velvet sheath that houses an ostensibly ornamental blade, his unpredictability puts people on edge.

Here’s the new trailers:
