Shenhe was one of the first data-mined characters in The Genshin effect, but has yet to be released, here’s what we know about her so far.
While an unfinished model for Shenhe was found in the Closed Beta of The Genshin effect prior to her release, she was one of the few characters whose existence was never officially confirmed until recently with Genshin Impact 2.2 and its newly added About Voicelines.
- THAN – The line “About Shenhe”
Shenli or Shenhe?
The unreleased character commonly known as Shenli is actually named Shenhe. I believe that when Shenhe was data-mined, many fans combined the two names together. The name “Shenli” is AyakaChinese surname, and unrelated to Shenhe. I used “Shenli” for SEO sake, as some fans still call the character Shenli.
The Genshin effect – Who is Shenli / Shenhe and when is her debut date?
Shenhe is one of the characters found by The Genshin effect data mining tools a few weeks after the game officially launched on September 28, 2020. The character data mined back then also included Hu Tao and Rosaria, now officially released. Along with Yao Yao and Yun Jin, Shenhe was one of the only data-mined characters at the time that remained unplayable.
Right now, a leaker mentioned before Shenhe will be released in Genshin Impact 2.4. If this is true, miHoYo will officially reveal Shenhe’s artwork for the first time in the next few days, after Version 2.3 launches on November 24.
Shenhe’s unfinished model, seen above, was announced by data miners a few months after its release. The Genshin effect. What we know of her lore so far is that Shenhe is a female character of Liyue Harbour. You can find some “how-to” videos of Shenhe on YouTube. However, they are all fan-made using 3D modeling and incomplete software such as Miku Miku Dance.
Shenhe’s Rarity, Weapon, and Sight
When she was first mined, Shenhe’s data indicated that she was a Claymore user and a Cryo vision user. After that, more data mining indicates that Shenhe is currently using the Catalyst weapon. Either way, she’s an unreleased character, so there’s no definite answer.
It’s very possible that her Sight and Weapon have been altered since she first got data mining over a year ago. The previously mentioned leaker also said that she is a 5 star character.
The Genshin effect – Is Shenhe the human form of the Cloud Keeper?
This theory has been debunked since the Introduction to Shenhe line was officially added in Version 2.2. These not only officially confirmed the existence of Shenhe for the first time, but also completely denied this hypothesis. In his lines, Ganyu mentions Cloud Retainer and Shenhe as different people.
Cloud Retainer is one of the Adepti under contract with Geo Archon, Rex Lapis. She is an Adeptus that looks like a blue flamingo, and we’ve seen her several times in the game, most notably in the Liyue Archon story chapter. This is why many fans speculate that Shenhe is her human form. Because Shenhe’s clothes look the same, and “Shenhe” can mean dog god in Chinese. You can even find some Shenhe and Cloud Retainer fanart together.
Can we have more playable Adeptus characters?
Currently, very few Adeptus characters are actually playable and humanoid like Rex Lapis/Zhongli, Ganyu, and Xiao. Looking at Ganyu’s lines about Shenhe, and how she was able to “start erasing her surroundings as her temper got better”, it’s very possible that Shenhe is also an Adeptus.
That’s all we know about Shenhe in The Genshin effect hitherto. I personally believe that with my chara design, Shenhe can make a lot of money for miHoYo. I hope to see her release in Version 2.4 or 2.5.
