Though not confirmed, it is likely that the boss materials from either The Chasm's Ruin Serpent, or Inazuma's Maguu Kenki will become Heizou's Ascension Material.

The Ruin Serpent drops the newest boss material, and might be used for more upcoming characters like Heizou. On the other hand, Maguu Kenki is the only field boss in Inazuma that drops Anemo Gemstones.

Additional Info on Shikanoin Heizou

Heizou's In-Game Information

Shikanoin Heizou
Detective of the Tenryou Commission
Nation: Inazuma
Faction: Tenryou Commission
Birthday: ?
Vision: Anemo
Constellation: Cervus Minor
Race: Human
Gender: Male

A young detective from the Tenryou Commission. Free-spirited and unruly, but cheerful and lively.

At first glance, Heizou seems like an ordinary young man, but he is actually the undisputed number one detective in the Tenryou Commission.

Not only does he possess a wild imagination, but he also has a mind for meticulous logic and reasoning, as well as an extraordinary sense of intuition when it comes to solving cases.

Whenever a crime occurs, his colleagues rely on experience to help them with handling the case, but Heizou brings in an out-of-the-box perspective and gets straight to the crux of the case.

People are impressed by his razor-sharp intuition, thinking that his reasoning ability and efficiency are godlike. Here, Heizou would simply reply with his signature smile: "I don't know, maybe this is something that even the gods can't do!"

Heizou's Faction and Line of Work

Shikanoin Heizou is a detective under the Tenryou Commission in Inazuma. He works with Kujou Sara but doesn't seem to uphold the same beliefs as her since he takes no interest in military or government events. He's even been to Watatsumi Island during a war just to sight-see!

Kujou Sara is also quite annoyed at Heizou for his personal beliefs and priorities. She can't do anything about this though, because Heizou provides results.

Proof that Heizou is a Rule-Breaker

Heizou's cousin, Kano Nana, revealed that Heizou is quite the rule-breaker. She openly admits she worries she can't take care of him because Heizou is always missing. You can talk to her yourself in the Grand Narukami Shrine!

Mention of Heizou in Bantan Sango: Case Files

Genshin - Shikanoin Heizou - Bantan Sango Mention
Bantan Sango Detective Agency's Ryuuji mentions Heizou as an acquaintance for the case during the Bantan Sango Case Files: The Warrior Dog event. Heizou is described as "unique," which further paints the image of Heizou being eccentric!

Character Thoughts on Shikanoin Heizou

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Ayaka ImageAyaka Mr. Shikanoin belongs to the Tenryou Commission, just like Miss Kujou. He is very... principled, sometimes even more determinedly so than Miss Kujou. The only thing is, when it comes to the question of which matters should be governed by his principles, I believe only Mr. Shikanoin himself knows the answer.
Genshin Impact - Gorou ImageGorou You mean that sneaky detective that never seems to actually be working on a case? Well, no one from the Shogunate can be fully trusted, so I'll be keeping my eyes and ears on him! On a separate note, he does have some talent for investigation. But how can we know that this isn't all part of some nefarious scheme?? Hmm. Only time will tell, I suppose.
Genshin Impact - Kokomi ImageKokomi Initially, I was astonished to see anyone coming to Watatsumi Island wearing a Tenryou Commission uniform. A Tenryou Commission samurai would never be that brazen, and a Tenryou Commission spy would never be that conspicuous. Shortly after, I discovered that he was a self-proclaimed "detective" by the name of Shikanoin, and that he took no interest in military, government, or commercial affairs. Instead he seemed to have arrived for a bit of sightseeing. As such, I set a few eyes on him, but refrained from taking any action to remove him from the island. be sure to talk to him if the chance presents itself.
Genshin Impact - Sara ImageSara Shikanoin and I may be colleagues, but I have few positive words to say about him. He seems preoccupied with his personal schemes while official duties take second place. The only reason I have not sought to bring him into line so far is that his investigations deliver results... 'sigh' He is such a headache.
Genshin Impact - Thoma ImageThoma Ho, that guy is a detective for the Tenryou Commission. He seems to have his own way of doing things — not the easiest person to get along with. Also... Any situation that involves a detective is probably not one that's going to end well. I think I'll keep on giving him a wide berth.
