Before the release of the version 4.1 update, leaked characters and banner details pointed toward two new five-star Fontaine playable releases. 

Aligning with previous leaks, HoYoverse then revealed the characters and banners coming with the version 4.1 update: Wriothesley and Neuvillette. These characters are both 5-star characters, with Wriothesley being a Cryo Catalyst user and Neuvillette being a Hydro Catalyst user.
