All knew the falcon's protection was a blessing of Favonius,
Few knew the blessing of Favonius was from a distant tribe.

Under the tyranny of the old nobles, Mondstadt cried for freedom.
Enslaved was the exiled foreign fighter in the land of the wind.
Yet she knelt not before injustice and deception, but set a shining example.
For she overthrew the barbaric nobles and established a chivalric order and the Church.
Blessed was she to eventually walk with the gods.

This was the sword that witnessed all her hardships and feats.
A testament to her achievement in spreading justice across Mondstadt.
You can feel her unrelenting spirit when swinging this sword:

Justice for the pressed.
Freedom for the shackled.
Wisdom for the deceived.
Let the wind of justice and freedom lead.


This sword was originally wielded by Vennessa.

  • Aquila Favonia is Latin for the "Eagle of the West Wind," which is the most natural interpretation for Xīfēng zhī Yīng (Chinese: 西风之鹰), one of Vennessa's titles in the original Chinese version, whose official English translation is the "Falcon of the West." See Vennessa#Trivia for details.

  1. ZH: The bird yīng (鹰) chiefly means predatory birds of the Accipitridae (including eagles, hawks, and harriers), while it can also mean falcons in its broadest sense. See Vennessa#Trivia for details.
  2. JA: Unlike its original Chinese character 鷹 (yīng, the Accipitridae), the kanji 鷹 almost always means "hawk" in Japanese.
  3. KO: Mae (Korean: ) does not distinguish falcons from hawks in its casual usage. In modern Korean, it usually means a falcon (specifically, the peregrine falcon), while a hawk (specifically, the northern goshawk) is called chammae (Korean: 참매), literally meaning "true mae," when a strict distinction is needed.
