Genshin Impact Leaks: Who is Skirk? + Character design revealed

Genshin Impact Skirk Leaks

Whenever there’s a new banner coming, fans of the beloved Genshin Impact just cannot help but speculate and search for leaks. In the upcoming update, there has been a rumor about a new playable character, Skirk. In this article, we will find out who Skirk is and see her revealed character design. Let’s go!

Who is Skirk?

In Genshin Impact, new characters are developed to have a connection with other current characters. Skirk is no different. With all information that is hinted at in the game, Skirk is known to be the master of none other than the fan-favorite member of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers, Tartaglia.

“In those three months, the swordswoman taught Tartaglia how to pass through the Abyss unhindered and nurtured the ability to stir up havoc from within Ajax’s trouble-mongering nature.” Quoted from Tartaglia’s information in the game, the ‘swordswoman’ mentioned is likely to be Skirk.

Another hint is that Skirk is so strong, she can defeat Tartaglia in a battle using just one hand. “It’s been years since I last saw my master. I should hope that next we meet, I’ll at least be able to force her to use both hands to beat me.” -Tartaglia.

For a long time, Tartaglia’s former mentor, a swordsman from the Abyss, remained one of the most mysterious inhabitants of Teyvat. However, an anonymous data miner recently leaked some options for display estimates of Skirk in Genshin Impact.

Since the leaks are still so early, many different Skirk concepts have been published. Almost in each of them, the girl is depicted with long blonde hair, the color of which varies from ash to auburn.

The robe skirt varies between artwork leaks, sometimes fashioned in the Abyss style (dark blue with a starry sky), and other times looking more like the Reader of the Abyss gown (red with the same interwoven stars).

Skirk is frequently seen with a knife. Since the sword in the final concept is quite similar to what Childe points out in one of the still animations, it is known that she was the one who taught Tartaglia how to use one.

  • We can’t be sure that Skirk will be using a sword in the upcoming update gameplay from these leaks.
  • Official artwork showed Raiden Shogun with a blade, yet she uses a polearm in the game.

Skirk’s concept art suggests that the heroine might appear in the plot someday, but this does not mean she will be playable. It is still unknown when the mysterious woman will meet the Traveler, and which leak about her appearance is the most accurate.
