Genshin Impact Layla | Pocket Tactics


The cast of characters coming to Genshin Impact is ever-expanding, and is picking up even more traction with the release of Sumeru. There’s a whole nation of fresh faces to get familiar with, each as unique and exciting as the last, and we can’t wait to meet them all – and one of the freshest faces to grace us is that of Genshin Impact’s Layla.

Hoyoverse first published drip marketing for Genshin Impact’s Layla in the lead up to the version 3.1 update, showing her to be an elven Sumeru native and student of theoretical astrology. Her gorgeous blue and white costume, sleepy eyes, and pointed ears have certainly drawn plenty of attention, but who exactly is she, what’s her release date, and what type of role will she play? Let’s take a look at everything we know so far.

Who is Genshin Impact’s Layla?

According to the official Genshin Impact Instagram, Layla is a Rtawahist student who specialises in theoretical astrology. She’s a dutiful student who works tirelessly, drawing star charts to help support her thesis. Her teachers have very high expectations of her, meaning her desk is always piled high with a seemingly endless stack of papers for her to work through.

A separate official post credits a mysterious girl who calls herself ‘The Stars’ Blessing’ as saying that Layla ‘always says that she’s overwhelmed writing her thesis and drawing start charts stresses her out, but she’s more resilient than anyone, and refuses to fall behind’. Of course, Layla’s elven ears have also raised some eyebrows among the community, as they appear very similar to those of the dendro archon, Genshin Impact’s Nahida. Are they perhaps related in some way? We’ll have to wait and see!
