Who is Genshin Impact’s Eide?

So far, we know very little about Genshin Impact’s Eide. There are no mentions of them in the current version of the game, but fans have begun speculating about who they are after a tweet from a prominent leaker.

The Twitter account Genshin_Intel posted “a quick overview of 3.5” on January 18, which included information about a new Archon Quest Interlude. According to the leaker, this quest will feature Genshin Impact’s Dainsleif, Genshin Impact’s Kaeya, and a new character called Eide.

This is all of the specific information that we have currently, but players on Reddit have been speculating that Eide may be another Abyss Herald or Abyss Lector character. We haven’t interacted with members of the Abyss Order as prominent NPCs much in the game so far, but the one notable time we do is in the From Dusk to Dawn in Byakuyakoku Enkanomiya world quest, where the character Enjou is also a pyro-aligned Abyss Lector.

As we mentioned before, we don’t know much about Eide other than their name. However, the players that think they might be the next Abyss Lector believe that they might be cryo-aligned.
