Thoma Genshin Impact character trailer

Thoma’s Genshin Impact gameplay trailer dropped on October 29, finally confirming what we’ve known about the Kamisato Clan housekeeper, and diving a little bit into his backstory.

As the chief retainer of the Kamisato Clan, Thoma is obviously well versed in both the region’s politics and characters — even if he doesn’t hail from Inazuma himself. It also showcases his sweet Polearm skills, knocking foes about with fire and fury.

Thoma story in Genshin Impact

Thoma isn’t getting a story quest as a four-star character, but he will have a Hangout Event.

Thoma is known for both his loyalty and kindness, often helping those that find themselves in the foreign lands of the Inazuma region. According to the 2.0 livestream, Thoma is “a rather special character”.


“He has blond hair, different from most other characters in the area, and his identity is naturally a bit of a mystery of its own.”

The majority of this “mystery” comes from the fact that Thoma was born in Mondstadt, but the reasons surrounding his arrival in Inazuma remain unknown. Since then, Thoma has loyally served the Kamisato clan and helped foreign travelers acclimate to life in Inazuma.
