Slowly but surely we see more and more Fatui Harbingers trickling into the Teyvat story. Let’s see Capitano from Genshin Impact, The Captain, and see what we know about the mysterious character. Hailing from Snezhnaya, the Eleven Fatui Harbingers are made up of some incredibly strong individuals, all of whom have set their sights on the Traveller.

Who is Genshin Impact’s Capitano?
You may think that Il Capitano, the captain, would be the leader of the Fatui Harbingers. However, this is not the case. His seat number is unconfirmed, although it is thought to be number four, as only four and ten remain missing (not including La Signora or Scaramouche’s empty slots).
Furthermore, there is not much to do for Capitano. We see his outfit, a snazzy helmet that hides his entire face, with a big cape to boot. He also has fantastic long black hair. His first and only appearance was in the Winter Night’s Lazzo trailer featuring all current Harbingers, mourning La Signora’s death. Here he questions Dottore about Scaramouche’s plans and whereabouts.
There are two voice lines on The Captain that can give us a little glimpse into what he’s about. Genshin Impact’s Tartaglia says he’s seen him fight before, and it’s a miracle. However, he is too low to have had any interaction with Capitano. Tartaglia’s violent streak is so great that he indicates that he wants to spar with Capitano and prove his strength.
Genshin Impact’s Wanderer, formerly known as Scaramouche and The Balladeer, also mentions Capitano. He says that the “ever just captain” who is also “brave and fearless” is constantly complimented by those around him. Wanderer, in his gruff nature, got sick of this very quickly, and we don’t blame him. He also mentions that Capitano has tremendous strength, which definitely leads us to believe that he holds the number four position, not number ten.
The only real mention of Capitano in the game is a letter from Genshin Impact’s Varka to the Knights of Favonius. This note, read by Mika from Genshin Impact at the recent Weinlesefest event, tells us that Varka encountered Capitano during his expedition. Fortunately, this was not a negative experience and both parties remained cordial to each other. He did hear that Capitano left for Genshin Impact’s Natlan region at the time. This leads us to believe that we will meet Capitano in Natlan, when the Traveler goes there after completing the Fontaine chapter.
Il Capitano is another character from the Commedia Dell’arte, like all Harbingers. This time it’s a stock character and it’s a very interesting one. Most of the time, the name ‘Captain’ is self-imposed, suggesting that the Capitano might be a bit more crooked. It is also said that the captain is often not Italian, unlike the other cast. This might suggest that Capitano is not from Snezhnaya, and has somehow made his way into the ranks with some embellishment on his part.
One theory that has surfaced is that Capitano could be the Bloodstained Knight; a member of the Knights of Favonius hundreds of years ago, appearing in the descriptions of the Bloodstained Chivalry artifact set. Not only does the set include a literal iron mask, chains, and features similar to Capitano’s design, but the descriptions seem to fit what Tartaglia says about him. Let’s not forget that the Doctor is mentioned in the Pale Flame artifact set, so it’s not too farfetched that even more, if not all, Harbingers appear on artifact sets.
Will Genshin Impact Capitano be a playable character?
Capitano will most likely become playable later in the Teyvat story unless he meets the same fate as certain other Harbingers. However, there are currently absolutely no clues as to what build he’s on.
Who are the Genshin Impact Capitano voice actors?
Capitano’s voice actors are Chris Tergliafera in the English dub and Ken Narita in Japanese. Hoyoverse will probably add more as he gets into the story.
