While miHoYo didn’t respond to any such complaints, the movement did gain a lot of traction. Now, the game has come under scrutiny once again due to the Genshin Impact Eula backstory.
Genshin Impact fans want to cancel Eula because of her Lawrence backstory
If you have been following Genshin Impact news lately, you might be well aware of the fact that the 1.5 Update is slated to arrive later this month. It will be adding two new characters, Eula and Yanfei, alongside a host of other things.
The update isn’t live yet, but fans are quite unhappy with Eula’s backstory. Eula is a descendant of the Lawrence clan, which ruled over the City of Mondstadt when the aristocracy grew corrupt. Here is her official Genshin Impact lore, according to Honey Impact.
For Eula is a descendant of the once-aristocratic Lawrence Clan. The blood that flows through her veins once flowed through those of Mondstadt’s oppressors during one of the darkest periods of the city’s history.
The Lawrence clan is hated, and consequently, “Eula has been viewed with contempt by the citizens of Mondstadt since birth.” The Lawrence Clan has a history of slavery in the game’s lore, as it bought Vennessa’s clan, who were slaves.

This hasn’t gone down quite well with the community as they were unhappy with the involvement of slavery in the game.
While Eula herself doesn’t support the ideologies of her ancestors and joins the Knights of Favonius for vengeance, her ancestral lineage has made a number of people boycott the upcoming character.
