If you’ve been wandering Teyvat for a while, you’ve probably heard of it Fatui Harbingers of Genshin Impact. As Paimon says, the Fatui are always involved in just about every step of your journey, and those Harbingers are on top. Of course, not all of them are as friendly as our favorite Schneznayan villain, Childe, either, so let’s take a look at who they are, their rankings, their motivations, and more.
For more on the Harbingers, check out our super deep dive in the Genshin Impact Fatui Harbinger trailer explained. Or, to keep up to date with all the latest goings on in Teyvat, visit our Genshin Impact events, Genshin Impact level list or Genshin Impact banner guides.
Who are the Genshin Impact Fatui Harbingers?
The Fatui Harbingers are the executive heads of the Fatui, the wealthiest and most politically influential members of Snezhnayan society, and the closest and most trusted followers of the Tsaritsa. They act as lieutenants and have “absolute authority,” though above all their duty is always in the interest of advancing the goals of the Tsaritsa.
While each has their own abilities, the Tsaritsa also grants them delusions to increase their strength – artificial visions known for depleting the user’s vitality in exchange for extreme strength. Each of the Fatui Harbingers heads their own division within the Fatui and takes a code name from the Commedia Dell’arte, a type of Italian theater in which performers use masks to portray their character’s role in the story.
What are the names of the Genshin Impact Fatui Harbingers?
Here are all the names and codenames of the Fatui Harbingers. Check out our guides to the individual Harbingers to learn more about them.
What are the Genshin Impact Fatui Harbinger Rankings?
Currently, the rankings of each of the Fatui Harbingers are unclear, although we know that after becoming a Harbinger, the Tsaritsa gives each of them a codename and a rank. Here’s what we know so far.
- First Fatui Harbinger – Pierro
- Second Fatui Harbinger – Dottore
- Third Fatui harbinger – Pulcinella
- Sixth Fatui Harbinger – none, but previously Scaramouche (this position has been vacant for hundreds of years from Archon Quest The Night-Bird Falls at the Curtain’s Call in Interlude Chapter: Act III – Inversion of Genesis)
- Seventh Fatui Harbinger – Sandrone
- Eighth Fatui Harbinger – none, formerly La Signora (now deceased, no one has reclaimed title)
- Ninth Fatui Harbinger – Pantalone
- Eleventh Fatui Harbinger – Tartaglia
We currently do not know what rank Capitano and Arlecchino fall into. However, we can see that the Fourth Fatui Harbinger and the Tenth Fatui Harbinger remain unconfirmed.
Because each Harbinger’s ranking is based on their individual strength and overall contribution to the Tsaritsa’s cause compared to other members, and based on what we know about each of the characters so far, we predict Capitano to be fourth and Arlecchino the tenth – but we’ll have to wait and see.
What do the Genshin Impact Fatui Harbingers do?
Each of the Fatui Harbingers has their own unique methodologies, motivations, and skills, so they approach their tasks independently and often argue with each other, as seen in the Winter Night’s Lazzo teaser trailer. Their main unified purpose also remains relatively vague, except to carry out the will of the Tsaritsa and manipulate and intimidate Teyvat’s other nations into bending them to her will.
What we do know is that the Fatui Harbingers are the main protagonists in the Tsaritsa’s plan to acquire the Gnoses from the other Archons, though her reason for collecting them hasn’t been confirmed yet – but we suspect it has to do with her hatred of Celestia and her drive to “burn away the old world” after the horrors of the Cataclysm.
It currently appears that the Fatui Harbingers are scattered across Teyvat, allowing the Tsaritsa to keep an eye on each of the nations from a distance as they carry out their duties to further her plans. From the Osial incident in Liyue harbor to Fatui’s interference during the Vision Hunt decree in Inazuma, and now Dottore’s shady dealings in Sumeru, at least one of the Harbingers seems to be involved in some way at the chaos the Traveler faces at every turn. of their journey.
But the biggest question of all is when we finally get to see the bigger picture of what the Tsaritsa and her Harbingers have been up to, will we come to understand the chaos and sacrifice as necessary for the greater good? Or are all these actions the equivalent of lighting one fire in the hopes of putting out another? Anyway, we know that the Fatui Harbingers aren’t going anywhere anytime soon – and in fact, two members have already joined us on our journey.
That’s all we have for now on the Genshin Impact Fatui Harbingers. We’ll be sure to update this guide if more shenanigans and plans emerge, but in the meantime, be sure to check out our list of the best games like Genshin Impact or the best mobile RPGs for even more adventures to embark on.
