Gorou holds a high rank in the Sangonomiya Resistance, which is led by Kokomi. Whereas Kokomi is the brains of the grand-scale operation, Gorou is the brawn, using brute force in battle and inspiring his comrades.

Genshin Impact‘s Head of Creative Concept and Writing Team, Xiao Luohao, added:

Although he looks like a young man, he’s a general of the Sangonomiya troops. He is a character that stands his ground in combat and becomes more fierce throughout the battle. He is very dependable in critical moments.

One of the scenes shown in the New Version Special Program depicts Gorou in a standoff against Sara, who is a general in the opposing Tenryou Commission.

Gorou appears to be a Geo bow user. According to Sukuna, Gorou will likely be a 4-star character.
