Thoughts About Qiqi

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Chongyun ImageChongyun She looks like a zombie, but as an exorcist, I feel there's... something different about her. Hmm, her name is also absent from all the praised names I've seen... Where exactly does she fit in among the deities?
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao Have you seen Qiqi? Tell me where she is, quickly. I need to go seal her away, hee-hee!
Genshin Impact - Xingqiu ImageXingqiu I've always thought there is more to Qiqi than meets the eye. But it's impossible to have a conversation with her when Baizhu's around. Hmm... We could wait till Baizhu makes a home call to one of his other patients and corner her.
Genshin Impact - Yanfei ImageYanfei I heard that little herb gatherer has written out a whole set of behavioral rules for herself. She may be small, but boy, has she got her head screwed on! She's definitely destined for greatness... ''The young of today shall outperform us tomorrow,'' as they say. I must admit, she has my respect.

Qiqi's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Baizhu ImageBaizhu About Baizhu
I can never remember Dr. Baizhu's face. But I don't mind.
Genshin Impact - Hu Tao ImageHu Tao About Hu Tao
Warm. Fake Smile. Death. I despise Hu Tao.
Genshin Impact - Xiao ImageXiao About Xiao
