(Upon reaching the ledge)
Paimon: Oh wowwwww!
(After admiring the scenery)
Paimon: That's a Statue of The Seven!
Paimon: There are a few of these statues scattered across the land to show The Seven's protection over the world.
Paimon: Among the seven gods, this god controls the wind.
Paimon: Paimon's not sure whether the god you're looking for is the Anemo God, but...
Paimon: Paimon'll take you to the Anemo God's place first, and there's a reason why~
(If you walk away from quest area)
Paimon: Hey! Where are you going? Come to Paimon!
Paimon: Don't stray too far from Paimon!
(If you continue to walk away from quest area)
Paimon: You should follow Paimon for now...
(As you go towards the statue)
Paimon: As we all know, poetry and language flow like the wind...
Paimon: There'll definitely be someone there who knows about your (sister/brother). At least, that's what Paimon thinks!
Paimon: Whether the gods actually answer you is a different story. You never know unless you try.
Paimon: So, let's hop to it!
(When you reach the lake)
Paimon: You can swim right over!
(After communing with Anemo)
Paimon: Ooh! Did you just feel the elements of the world?
Paimon: Seems all you had to do was just touch the statue and you got the power of Anemo!
Paimon: As much as they may want it, people in this world can never get a hold of powers as easily as you...
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg I think I know why, it's because...
Paimon: Ah-ha, it's because you're not from this world to begin with.
Icon Dialogue Talk.svg This can't be good...
Paimon: It's a bit rude to say that about the power the gods just gave you!
Paimon: If we keep heading west from here, we'll eventually reach Mondstadt, the City of Freedom.
Paimon: Mondstadt is the city of wind, because they worship the God of Anemo.
Paimon: So perhaps, because you got power from the God of Anemo, you can find some clues there.
Paimon: There are also lots of bards there, so perhaps one of them has heard news of your (sister/brother).
Paimon: Let's move then!
Paimon: The elements in this world responded to your prayers and Paimon thinks that's a lovely sign.
