Diona: The Bartender Who Hates Alcohol

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.

Diona is a 4-star Cryo character from Mondstadt who wields a bow in battle. She is the young bartender of the Cat's Tail, and she is determined to destroy the wine industry from the inside.

Diona's troubles with alcohol started at home. Her father Draff, the most skillful hunter in Springvale, is normally a person she loves and deeply admires. However, he becomes a different man when he is drunk, "like a wild boar rolling about in the mud!" Draff neglects his daughter and stays out for days at a time, once getting lost in a gorge and forcing her to go track him down (this incident is where she got her cryo vision). Even when Diona was really small, she would have to take care of him when he was drunk, reversing their roles. Because of its iron grip on her father, she began to despise alcohol.

Little Diona confided her problems to the spring fairy, who lived in the pool at the center of town. Since she was a young child, she could see the fairy while nonbelievers could not. The fairy was touched that someone recognized her, and so she gave the little catgirl a blessing for her seventh birthday. Every drink she made would taste delicious, no matter what was in it or how it was made. Diona is unaware that she is fairy-blessed, so she tries harder and harder every day to make the most disgusting drinks possible... which still come out tasting wonderful anyway.

Diona is proud of her Katzlein bloodline and the impeccable hunting, climbing, and stealth skills it gives her. Since she's only 12, Diona can be a little naive sometimes, but she's quite advanced for her age in other aspects, such as taking responsibility for her own care and holding down a job, which is quite sad when you think about it. She's had to put up with a lot of troubles such as rude patrons who make fun of her catlike features and grab her tail. As a result, she is very feisty and standoffish on the surface, but deep down Diona is just a kid who really wants some genuine companionship. Will you be able to grant her wish and help her out with her mission to take down the wine industry? It all depends on your choices in this hangout event!

When it comes to butterflies, I'm the best at pouncing on— err, catching them. Hey, not in a fun way! I catch butterflies to add a nasty taste to my cocktails. I'm not a cat! Meow! *hiss*
