Arataki Itto was mentioned back in Genshin Impact 2.0 as a guy with a bad reputation that lost his Geo vision against Kujou Sara during the vision Hunt Decree.
After the traveler convinced the Raiden Shogun to abolish the Vision Hunt decrees, Itto is back for revenge.
The second half of Genshin Impact 2.3 will feature Itto in a new banner and follow his steps in the Story Quest: Taurus Iracundus.

If Arataki Itto is Inazuma's bad boy, Gorou is definitely the good boy. The general of Sangonomiya's Army is the most loyal member of the Resistance against the Fatui Invasion.
Players explored more about Gorou during his hangout event, including some Gameplay. The event is available for players with Adventure Rank 30.
Gorou is excellent support, most likely the cornerstone of the new meta team, Mono Geo.
