Who is Cyno?
According to the Genshin Impact site, Cyno is an upcoming playable character in the game. This character is a male and he was first seen on Chapter 12 of the official webstoon. This character also appeared in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline preview. In the series, this character is seen to help Collei in sealing her Archon residue.
How is the personality of this character? Cyno is rather a separate person. He prefers to keep things clear and concise. He comes up composed and he is not showing much emotional reaction. What about his appearance? It is like the culture of his region, the clothes that he wears are inspired by traditional Arabian outfits.
However, as you are able to see that his headpiece is more similar to Egyptian inspiration. The clothes that he wears is the same as the dancer outfits of ancient times during the merchant trade boom in the Middle East which takes inspiration from tales like that of One Thousand and One Nights and it is rather base bare as you are able to see in the original stories like Aladdin.
What Is the Element of Cyno?
Since this character is still upcoming, there is no information about which element he is. However, based on the Egyptian theme, he could be a Geo user. Cyno will be able to be met in Sumeru. It is the city-state which worships the God of Wisdom, the Dendro Archon. Also, Sumeru was where Lisa attended the Sumeru Academia for her studies.

- Geo. There is no status effect for this element.
Reaction Description: Crystallize-> it absorbs the element and drops a crystal of that similar element. The crystal will give an elemental shield and the shield will absorb all types of damage. However, it can protect more efficiently against the element of the shield.
- Electro. The status effect of this element is shock status.

- Cryo. This element applies the Cold status and it can reduce movement speed.

Frozen->It will be able to freeze the target and if the frozen target is hit by Claymore, a Plunge Attack or Geo DMG, it will cause Shattered.

It is important for you to know that elements that do not apply status effects naturally upon hit by the element are not able to be used as a catalyst for Elemental Reactions such as Anemo. Thus, it must be applied last. Only Cryo applies an actual status effect. The other elements applying status effects are only used as catalysts for Elemental Reactions.
