Fatui Harbingers whom I am very happy to meet at Genshin Impact

While HoYoverse might skip too many dialogue-filled scenes to tell, Genshin Impact’s narrative and cast of characters, in particular, are well crafted. Their individual stories and the story they weave together are some of the most enjoyable aspects of the game. Two years later, we’ve now surpassed 60 playable characters, along with other non-playable characters, such as Timmie and Zhiqiong , adding significant flavor in the background.

The Fatui Harbingers, who at first glance appear to be the villains of the story, continue to be among the most complex and enjoyable characters. Unfortunately, out of eleven members, only four appeared in the game. Most of them are rumored to be playable eventually. While I’m eager to learn more about each of them, there are some that pique our interest more than others. Here are the Fatui Harbingers I’m most looking forward to meeting in Genshin Impact.

The Most Exciting Fatui Harbingers Coming to Genshin Impact, Ranked.

For the purposes of this list, I won’t include the four Fatui Harbingers we’ve already encountered in the game: Childe, Signora, Scaramouche, and Dottore. I also assume that Pierro the jester counts as a Fatui Harbinger. This recent leak claims that is not the case.

7) Harlequin

It’s certainly our personal bias, but a character heavily involved in plots to intentionally orphan children is totally irredeemable to us. We’re slightly intrigued by Arlecchino’s reference in the trailer for A Winter Night’s Lazzo to death in “foreign lands” and what that means for his character. However, it was quickly followed by a reference to “making children cry”, confirming all but that his character is directly connected to the Snezhnayan orphanages. Our interest quickly dropped. Genshin Impact may try to make their Fatui Harbingers tradeable, but Arlecchino and Dottore will almost certainly remain on our characters-I-won’t-touch-with-a-ten-foot-pole-list.

6) Pants

Although directly referenced in Yelan’s story quest, Pantalone has yet to appear in the game and remains Snezhnaya’s elusive financier. His reasoning for hating the gods seems to be tied to his obsession with “fair trade” and the lack of trade between mortals and Celestia. That, or he is upset because the only method Celestia uses to interact with mortals, bestowing vision, seems to have been denied to her. Unfair, indeed. If his character’s core is truly “fairness,” that’s reason enough to hate the gods, I guess. It’s just not the most compelling, in our opinion.

5) Ladybug

Other than his political aptitude, little stands out about Pulcinella. Perhaps that’s what makes this character so insidious, though. Perhaps he is such a cunning and talented mayor that it really gave him the power to reach rank five in the Fatui Harbingers. He wouldn’t show off that power because no corrupt politician worth his salt would. I’m curious about the extent of Pulcinella’s power, given her high rank. But his schtick of being a cunning statesman, someone who maintains control of people by any means necessary, also leaves a bad taste in our mouths.

 

4) Sandrone

Sandrone, or Marionnette, is a pretty big question mark. We know she’s involved in the Snezhnayan automaton experiments, à la Katheryne. We know from Scaramouche and Childe’s voice lines that she works on her automatons, like the one pictured holding her, maniacally. Other than that, she only had one spoken line in the teaser for Interlude, which only included two words: “Totally laughable.” Her lack of common language and striking resemblance to Katheryne almost makes us wonder if the girl pictured is really Sandrone. It could be that “she” is the Ruin Guard holding a humanoid puppet. A Fatui Harbinger who is actually a Ruin Guard, obsessively trying to figure out what it means to create life or even live,

3) Colombina

Nothing about Columbina says “evil” or even “deadly.” However, she is ranked third among the Fatui Harbingers, which suggests not only that she is extremely powerful, but that she may not even be human. Columbina appears to be mild-mannered, but feels confident enough to challenge and tease Dottore, a known psychopath, at the end of the Interlude trailer. She’s a tall, contradictory enigma who seems deceptive in ways Pulcinella can’t, and her story is something we look forward to unpacking in the future.

 

2) Captain

Revealed immensely strong and powerful by the vocal lines of Childe and Scaramouche, Capitano also seems to have another unique trait. He’s apparently an honorable villain. Capitano was not only encountered by Varka at some point during Mondstadt’s expedition to the North, but it has been suggested that he was there to help the expedition team out of a difficult situation. Or at the very least, they were both stuck in a precarious situation and Capitano chose to be cooperative. Mondstadt and Snezhnaya have very strained political ties, but it is suggested that the aid was given voluntarily and without taking. If any of the Fatui Harbingers can be made “redeemable”, it’s probably going to be this guy.

1) Stone

The man who started it all. Not only is he known to be the leader of the Fatui Harbingers, but it is virtually confirmed that Pierro was deeply involved in the events of the cataclysm 500 years ago in Khaenri’ah. Getting to know this character probably won’t come for several years, but you can bet it will come with plenty of revelations about what really happened during that time, how the Traveler’s brother was involved, and what Pierro knows about “the truth of this world. »
