Barbara is a playable Hydro character in Genshin Impact. She is received for free in the Baptism of Song Event for completing the quest A Long Shot during the Prologue Act III: Song of the Dragon and Freedom. She is the daughter of Frederica Gunnhildr and Seamus Pegg, and the younger sister of Jean.

Barbara is the deaconess of the Church of Favonius and a self-proclaimed "idol" after learning about them from the intrepid adventurer Alice.



The Deaconess of the Favonius Church and a shining starlet adored by all. Although the concept of a starlet is rather novel in a city of bards, the people of Mondstadt love Barbara nonetheless. "I owe everything to the city's spirit of freedom" — Barbara, regarding her popularity.

Description from Official Website[4]


Every citizen of Mondstadt adores Barbara. However, she learned the word "idol" from a magazine.

In-game character attributes and profile page text

Barbara is a charismatic individual who does her best to spread joy all around. The mere sight of her alone can boost people's spirits.[5]

She has been bright and optimistic from a young age, albeit being a bit clumsy at times. Regardless, she's able to quickly recover and jump back into it.[6]

Barbara is a hard-worker, but can be hard on herself at times. However successful she may seem to others, she shares her own mixed feelings on her achievements. Barbara will become somewhat disillusioned and doubtful when pondering about how long a smile lasts on someone's face after listening to her song.[7]

Barbara has a bit of an inferiority complex when it comes to her older sister, wanting to surpass her in at least one thing, be it popularity or grades. Even now, she continues to repress these feelings. Regardless, she unconditionally loves her just as much.

Her craving for recognition switched over into the mere desire to help people. Even with all her depressing thoughts, she quickly jumps back on her feet, disallowing herself to be depressed for more than 30 seconds.[8] Barbara continues to strive for excellence, believing she'll be of help to her sister.


Barbara has a small, petite build with ash blonde hair, tied in pigtails, and blue eyes.

She wears a white frock that is open at the shoulders with blue frills, gold lining, and a large white and blue bow, with a gold cross, in the front, along with white tights, black flats with block heels, and a blue and white cap resembling a nurse's cap with a gold cross on its front. Her white tights have a faint flower polka-dot pattern, and her flats have blue cuffs attached above her ankles.

Her Vision is attached to a gold-adorned spell-book with a light blue cover and a small cross charm hangs at her side, attached to a black strap held together with a gold hoop.
