Genshin Impact

Character Creation Guide


This is the Character Creation Guide for Genshin Impact. Read on to learn about choosing a protagonist, entering a name, birthday, avatar, and signature.

Choosing a Main Character

At the start of the game, you will be asked to choose from one of the Twins, also known as the Travelers. Tap on either the male or female Main Character, then enter a name of your choosing.

Which Main Character to Choose

Entering a Name, Avatar, and Signature

The Main Character's name can be changed in the Summon Paimon Menu. You can also change the User Avatar and add a signature in the Paimon menu's options.

Entering a Birthday

You can also set a birthday in the Summon Paimon Menu. Setting a birthday will give you a special bonus on your entered birthdate.

Note that you will not be able to change your birthdate once you have entered it.

Character Customization is Not Available

You cannot change the Main Character's appearance in Genshin Impact. However, it's possible to change the look of their Wind Gliders by tapping the Hanger icon on the lower right of the character's Details Screen.

Tapping that icon opens the list of available skins for your character's Wind Glider.

This is the Same For Other Characters

At the time of writing, obtained characters' appearances cannot be changed. Mihoyo's characters in Genshin Impact are well designed so a time where their appearances can be changed may not come but who know?
