Genshin Impact continues to release new characters along with detailed lore for these characters. This time, we are getting a glimpse at Mona, a five-star catalyst wielding Hydro user.

MiHoYo recently released a video to detail Mona, as Mona is the character detailed in Genshin Impact's most recent event. You will be able to take part in the story ark that is focused on Mona. It is only available to those that are Adventure Rank 38 and complete the quest "The Darknight Hero's Alibi," from Noctua Chapter: Act I. After you reach those goals, you can use a Story Key to unlock the quest.

Mona, like other five-star characters, can bring a lot of utility to your team. Being a Hydro Catalyst user, you can deal some decent damage at range, inflicting the wet status to enemies.

Normal/Charged Attack - Ripple of Fate

Mona's standard attack is a five-hit magic attack that deals Hydro damage to your enemies.

Her charge attack will deal Area of Effect Hydro damage to enemies after a short cast time.

Elemental Skill - Mirror Reflection of Doom

Mona creates a phantom that will taunt the enemies while dealing periodic hydro damage. When the phantom expires, it will explode, dealing Area of Effect Hydro damage to the enemies.

You can also hold the skill allowing Mona to move backward at a brisk pace and leave behind a Phantom.

Elemental Burst - Stellaris Phantasm

Mona summons the sparkling waves and creates a reflection of the starry sky, applying the Illusory Bubble status to the opponents in a large AoE.

The Illusory Bubble traps enemies inside a bubble that prevents them from moving. While the Illusory Bubble is active, the affected enemies will receive an Omen when damaged while also removing the Illusory Bubble effect, which deals Hydro damage on removal. While the Omen is active, the affected enemy will receive increased damage.

Passive Skill 1 - Come 'n' Get Me, Hag!

When Mona uses Illusory Torrent for at least two seconds, and there is an enemy nearby, she will automatically create a Phantom that will taunt the enemy.

Passive Skill 2 - Waterborne Destiny

Mona will receive increased Hydro damage equivalent to 20% of her Energy Recharge rate.

Passive Skill 3 - Principium of Astrology

Mona has a 25% chance to return materials used while crafting Weapon Ascension items.

Illusory Torrent

When Mona dashes/runs, she will cloak herself under the guise of a water torrent. This will allow her to sprint unseen past enemies while also inflicting the wet status on them if she stops running near the enemies. Mona is also able to utilize Illusory Torrent to navigate across the water quickly.

I need to spend some more time playing Genshin Impact. I am only Adventure Rank 22. If I want to take part in Mona's story quests, I need to kick it up a notch!
