Gorou: Reliable Resistance General

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.

Gorou is a 4-star Geo character from Inazuma. He's the general of Watatsumi Island's army, and he is an excellent archer who serves as Kokomi's right-hand-man on and off the battlefield.

Gorou's leadership makes him highly revered by his men. He's responsible, straightforward, and always willing to lend a (fluffy) ear to a comrade in need. Because of this, Gorou was the perfect candidate to write an anonymous advice column for Yae Publishing House in "That's Life" magazine; he really enjoys this because it gives him a chance to connect with other people without his status as a high-ranking general getting in the way. Gorou enjoys mountaineering and he is fond of eating cake, but he hates onions due to an embarrassing incident that made him cry in front of his soldiers. Poor Gorou does not handle embarrassment well...

Gorou is terrified of Yae Miko, the editor-in-chief of Yae Publishing House. This is because she once forced him into drag and took a bunch of photos of him. Little does he know, these photos helped Miko create "Ms. Hina", the face of his advice column and the object of Itto's affections. Miko can easily rile Gorou up by bringing attention to his dog-like traits, such as his beautiful tail or the way his ears twitch when he's mad. Can you help Gorou deal with his fears and insecurities, and be the best general he can be? It all depends on your choices in this hangout event!

I may not have superior cunning or intelligence, but what I do have is my own two hands and my life to lay on the line. Countless battles in, I'm still here, so I guess these hands and my will to survive were both strong enough to see me through. Some even say that no matter how dire the battle may be, everyone will emerge unscathed as long as they follow me. And with that, I've somehow gained enough reputation among our forces to become the leader that I am now.
