On the occasion of Yelan being rerun for the first time in version 3.4, MGN will reveal 7 facts you may not know about this interesting character.
Yelan is a mysterious Water-type character from the Liyue region of Genshin Impact. Her design and personality hint at her secretive nature, leaving the player with many unanswered questions about her true identity and role in the Teyvat world. Despite questions surrounding her work at the General Department, Yelan has proven to be highly capable of handling even the most complex cases. Her dedication and commitment to her work was evident, and she continues to excel at what she does.
Outside of work, Yelan shows a much more relaxed and carefree side. She likes to take a nap whenever she can, but is willing to adjust her schedule to fit the work of the day. For particularly difficult cases, she saves her energy to tackle them in one go. While her gameplay is fairly straightforward, there are still many unknowns about her personality, leaving Genshin Impact players with a lot to explore.

According to Xiangling, Yelan looks like someone who can’t stand spicy food. However, she was surprised to learn that Yelan’s dishes weren’t spicy enough for her, as she had seen Yelan eat pieces of dried Chili Chili. This means that Yelan has a high tolerance for spices, and in her lines she explains that eating the Chili Chili in this way is a family tradition.
Interestingly, her favorite dish is a unique and flavorful tea made with dried Chili Chili and the pistil of the Bouquet of Bouquets. She grinds the ingredients into a fine powder, mixes them with Van Lai tea leaves, and brews a concentrated pot of tea that will linger on the palate with a deliciously spicy aftertaste, unlike coffee.

Despite claiming to work for the General Department, Yelan’s frequent absences from work were noted by Ganyu in her lines. Her character profile further confirms this.

This.
However, now the bulletin board at Yihuyan located in Liyue Port has made it clear that the Stone Tea Shop is in fact a casino.

Yelan 5’s character story (requires the player to have at least Favorite 6 with Yelan) further confirms that the woman at the Stone Tea Shop is none other than Yelan herself. Taking advantage of that situation, she took over the teahouse and turned it into a secret base after Childe killed the previous owner.

After all, places like casinos are prime locations to gather more information and better understand criminal activities. Thus, Yelan is somewhat like a spy for Port Liyue, like Kaeya in many ways to Mondstadt.

Normally, intelligence agents would conceal their true identities to build trust and gather intelligence, and this was no different for Yelan. However, instead of sticking to a false identity, Yelan creates new ones when the situation calls for it. Her job often requires her to deal with problems between people who have difficulty communicating with each other.
As a result, these people came to Yelan without knowing that she was also negotiating with the other party. Each of them met a Yelan with a different name and identity, each believing they had a unique partnership with her. Unbeknownst to them, Yelan was able to get a better understanding from each side and realize the basic truth of the case.

In Chinese symbolism, the orchid stands for simple beauty, elegance, and integrity – all traits that can be seen in Yelan’s appearance and play.
