Shikanoin Heizou Genshin Impact is also known to be a distant relative of Kano Nana, an NPC that appears in hangouts Glazed.

You can tell what Heizou's character is like from a few voiceline character regarding Heizou here:

Character Voicelines
Kamisato Ayaka Mister Shikanoin is a member of the Tenryou Commission, just like Miss Kujou. He is very…principled, sometimes even more assertive than Miss Kujou. 

The only thing is, when it comes to the question of which matters should be governed by his principles, I believe only Lord Shikanoin himself knows the answer…”

Thomas Ho, that person is a detective for the Tenryou Commission. He seems to have his own way of doing things—not the easiest person to get along with. Also… Any situation involving detectives is a pro”
Kujou Sara Shikanoin and I may be colleagues, but I have some positive words to say about him.  He seems preoccupied with his personal schemes while official duties come second. 

The only reason I haven't attempted to bring him to the line this far is that his investigations yielded results… *sigh* He's such a headache.”

Sangonomia Kokomi “At first, I was surprised to see that there were people who came to Watatsumi Island wearing Tenryou Commission uniforms. 

A samurai of the Tenryou Commission could never be so bold, and never could a spy of the Tenryou Commission be so conspicuous. 

Shortly after, I discovered that he was a self-proclaimed “detective” going by the name Shikanoin, and that he had no interest in military, government, or commercial affairs. 

Instead, he seemed to have come for a bit of sightseeing. Thus, I paid attention to him, but refrained from taking any action to get him off the island. Make sure to talk to him if you get the chance.”


Gorou You mean the sneaky detective who never seems to actually work on a case? Well, no one from the Shogunate can be completely trusted, so I'll keep an eye on him! 

On a separate note, he does have some talent for investigation. But how can we know that this is not part of some evil scheme? Hmm. Only time will tell, I guess."
