Genshin Impact’s Shinakoin Heizou is a prodigal detective who works under Kujou Sara in the Tenryou Commission. Despite a rebellious past that trickles into his unrestrained approach to work, he’s known for being a highly intuitive individual whose unique thought process brings him to the core of the most difficult cases.

Shikanoin Heizou is a four-star Anemo catalyst wielder with a unique martial-arts-like playstyle that makes use of his fists over his weapon. Here’s everything you need to prepare if you intend to pull for Inazuma’s cunning detective.
