One of the many characters leaked by the Genshin Impact community recently is Dehya. She's a tall, dark-haired, and dark-clothed female character, and is now officially recognised thanks to a new trailer that Hoyoverse has released, showing her in Sumeru.
With Sumeru's desert expansion now live, we have learned more about Dehya, and her connection to newly released characters like Candace. She will likely release in later updates, and will be a familiar face through the events of version 3.1.

Genshin Impact - Dehya release date
According to leaks, Dehya is scheduled for a release in 3.5 as a 5-Star character. This seems to fit other leaks suggesting that the Claymore weapon in the Sumeru 5-Star set will release in the same patch, and will no doubt benefit Dehya.
What is Dehya's Elemental Vision?
Dehya has appeared in both parts of the Archon quest so far, and will likely return before the Sumeru story is done. Due to this, we clearly see her Pyro vision hanging around, confirming her elemental affinity.
What weapon does Dehya use?
Dehya is a two-handed weapon user, making her the third Pyro Claymore character after Diluc and Xinyan.
It appears that Dehya, in her story appearance, uses an Old Merc's Pal claymore after selling her usual weapon, but we can give her better than that. Here are our recommendations for now:
|Weapon||Rarity||Bonus stat||Skill||How to obtain|
|Wolf's Gravestone||5-Star||ATK + 10.8%||Increases ATK by 20%. On hit, attacks against enemies with less than 30% HP increases all party members' ATK by 40% for 12s. Can only occur once every 30s.||Wishes|
|Serpent Spine||4-Star||CRIT Rate||The bonus DMG is an additive buff that increases your DMG from all sources. This means no matter what your element is, it will increase your Normal Attacks, Elemental Skill, and Elemental Burst DMG.||Battle Pass reward|
|Prototype Archaic||4-Star||ATK + 6.0%||On hit, Normal or Charge Attacks have a 50% chance to deal an additional 240% ATK DMG to enemies with a small AoE. Can only occur once every 15s.||Forged|
What are Dehya's skills?
Each Genshin Impact character has two skills and a passive ability. One of the skills takes longer to charge, and is a stronger attack.
Dehya is said to use an attack that creates a 'grave', which she stabs her sword into - this causes Pyro AoE damage, and has a jumping attack with it. For a claymore user, she seems to be quite nimble.
Who is Dehya?
Dehya is a formidable foe, but a friend to many. She is a mercenary with the Eremites, part of the Desertfolk of Sumeru, and is known as the 'Flame-Mane'. She has connections to Aaru Village, and knows Candace well - the protector of the village.
Dehya works as the employed bodyguard of Dunyarzad Homayani, and this is how she is introduced into the official story of Genshin, as she helps the traveler to figure out what is going on in Sumeru.
