Mona, at her first sight, will give you the most accurate impression of an astrologer. Her attire is astoundingly mystical and attractive, and it fits well on her fair skin and curvy build. The costume she wears is a combination of a blue blouse and a red cape that floats seamlessly from her back. Her hat sits on her head and curves as if it is the one that is doing all the fortune-telling.

Like any other magician’s, Mona’s hands are covered with black gloves and her legs with the same color stockings. She has flowing black hair tied into two pigtails, and at the end of each, you can see a decoration of a golden compass that is significant of her astrologer trait.

Mona’s Vision

The Genshin Impact Mona has a deeply ingrained story behind her astrological character. As the tale unfolds, we come to learn that Mona’s characteristic fortune-telling is a present to her by her master and the only proof of their student-teacher relationship. Although this skill serves no real purpose sometimes, she truly preserves and values it. Mona believes in being modest about her vision and carries it everywhere she goes. She decides against being proud of it and takes great care of the teaching-aid she had received. She carries it along with her for every mission until we discover there is another congenital vision of her own dissolving her old teaching aid…

Genshin Impact Mona: Personality

Genshin Impact Mona is a sturdy personality. What makes her shine out among other astrologers is that she believes in the very fundamentals of astrology and doesn’t sell out her fortune-telling for money. Other astrologers may speak very extravagantly about people, but you will not find Mona among them. Mona believes in being candid, no matter how pleasant or distasteful her results are.

Because of her astrological practice’s uprightness, she has gravitated many people to read for them their fortunes. This gives Mona ample resources for her research. However, research requires money to purchase the texts and apparatus needed for it. Mona’s income is only based on her work in The Steambird’s  “All Things Astrological” Column. Every book from Sumeru and Liyeu comes with a humongous price tag that leaves Mona dragging herself through the end of each month.

However, lack of money doesn’t stop the Genshin Impact Mona from practicing her gifts. She continues to help people through the oblivion they are trying to clear when they consult her.

Other than that, she has not appeared in any other quests, like the “Archon Quest.”
