Chongyun: The Exorcist With Excess Yang Energy

Genshin Impact's hangout events are a fun way to get to know your characters better, like a dating sim with different routes based on your choices.

Chongyun is a 4-star Cryo character who wields a claymore. He's from a prominent exorcist family in Liyue, but he hasn't found any ghosts yet himself, because he was born with an excess amount of yang energy. His high levels of yang energy make him shine like a beacon, which alerts ghosts from far away. He also has a tendency to become easily riled up.

To keep his yang energy under control, Chongyun only eats cold food like popsicles and tries to avoid situations where he'll become emotional. However, this is easier said than done when your best friend is the notorious prankster Xingqiu. Xingqiu sends poor Chongyun on all sorts of wild goose chases, feeds him spicy food, and even reads him smutty romance novels to embarrass him. Yet if anyone else messes with the hapless exorcist, he swiftly seeks his revenge.

Chongyun is normally solemn and reserved, but once his yang energy is activated, he becomes the life of the party (once he jumped on stage at one of Xinyan's rock concerts and began singing along because he couldn't handle the energy of the crowd!), or a terrifying force of nature (hilichurls beware!). Can you help Chongyun reach his goal of being a great exorcist and manage his yang energy, or will you get into wacky mishaps and knock the poor guy out in the street? It all depends on your choices!

Waiting for evil to show up at the doorstep will get you nowhere — you have to go out and hunt it down. By purging Liyue of evil spirits, I bring peace of mind to people and also broaden my horizons. If an evil spirit ever bothers you, just let me know. I'll come and help you out right away.
