Diona Character Overview
Diona is the daughter of Draff, and according to him, she is in a bit of a rebellious phase. Although she adores her father and looks up to him with high regard, witnessing him change his personality when drunk changed Diona’s impression of him.
With this, Diona started a vendetta against alcohol and despised anyone who drinks except Lisa and Eula.
While Diona has the means to destroy the entire industry, she chose not to, and instead, she worked as a bartender and served terrible drinks.
Unfortunately, she doesn’t know that her friend blessed her with magic that makes all her drinks delicious, no matter what the ingredients are. Up to now, Diona is not aware that the beverages she serves taste exceptional.

You Might Ask (FAQs)
Is Diona good in Genshin Impact?
Depending on what you are looking for, Diona can be a good and bad addition to your team. If you are looking for pure support that can provide heals and shields, then Diona is what you are looking for. However, if you are looking for support that can also inflict some damage, you might want to start looking at other characters.
Does Diona hate Diluc?
Yes. As a bartender, Diona knows that Diluc is a regular customer at her bar. Unlike most citizens of Mondstat, Diona only has hatred towards him. However, it turns out that Diluc only goes to the bar to meet Diona since he also hates alcohol.
Is Diona better than Fischl?
Fischl remains to be the top-picked 4-Star character due to her DPS potential. Although Diona is a decent character, it is pretty hard to compete with other Cryo characters like Chongun and Qiqi. Nonetheless, Diona is undoubtedly better than Kaeya.
