The seven Archons are gods who each have high levels of control over one of the Elements. They directly channel the power of Celestia through a Gnosis, and can bestow their own power to humans through Visions.
The Archons are also known as The Seven; each Archon is associated with and worshipped by one of Teyvat's seven nations. The nation's elemental environment is based on its Archon's element.
An Archon's power is directly tied to their level of control over their nation. As a result, Venti—who travels as a bard and refuses to directly control the people of Mondstadt—is extremely weak, while the Tsarista is extremely powerful.
Humans whom the Seven have recognized will be given a Vision, a God's Eye, to wield the elemental powers of that Archon. Wielders of Visions are known as "allogene" and are also privileged with the chance of rising to godhood.
