(Talk to Kaeya)
Kaeya: You've arrived.
Kaeya: Come closer. Can you smell that?
Icon Dialogue Talk.png ...I can't smell anything.
Icon Dialogue Talk.png It's the smell of burnt Pyro Slimes.
Kaeya: Something must have happened in the temple.
Kaeya: I imagine there will be slimes, hilichurls, and... whatever is giving Stormterror extra power.
Kaeya: Oh yes, it is going to be lively in there indeed!
Icon Dialogue Talk.png Will it be dangerous?
Kaeya: As bustling as it may be — no, I can't imagine it will be dangerous at all.
Icon Dialogue Talk.png No doubt nothing more than a disorderly mob of creatures.
Kaeya: Oh, ho-ho! You're quite the brave one, aren't you!
Kaeya: It's a pity that the Temple of the Wolf has been disturbed by such an atrocity.
Kaeya: Let's head in, (Traveler).
Kaeya: No one makes offerings to The Four Winds anymore, yet the old winds never vanish...
Kaeya: We need to clear out the temples, for The Four Winds.
(Talk to Kaeya again)
Kaeya: My first chance to fight beside you.
Kaeya: Think we'll make a good team?

(Approach Kaeya inside the temple)
Kaeya: Let me show you how the Knights of Favonius conquer our adversaries!
(Kaeya joins you as a trial character in the domain)
(Enter the first room)
Kaeya: Hmm. If I'm not mistaken, the end of the temple should be up there.
Paimon: Wait... How do you know?
Kaeya: Heh, experience.
Kaeya: ...The kind of experience you get after years of dealing with things like this for others.
(Defeat all the hilichurls in the room)
Kaeya: Traveler... Unless I'm mistaken, you don't seem to have a Vision.
Kaeya: So how exactly is it that you're able to channel elemental energy?
Paimon: It was a very strange occurrence.
(Approach the wind current)
Paimon: Ugh, finally... we're here.
Kaeya: Seems the path ends here. Let's use the wind currents to fly up.
(Break the Hydro Amber)
Paimon: Water! We can use this to put out fire!
Kaeya: Good idea. That's some keen observation.
Kaeya: We should get Jean to give you a title and make you a knight.
(After crossing the first set of underwater spikes)
Kaeya: Speaking of, did you know?
Kaeya: Stormterror was once one of The Four Winds.
Kaeya: I'm not aware of the exact details. If you're interested, you can ask the Acting Grand Master about it.
(Approach Stormterror's crystal)
Paimon: Is that the thing that Stormterror is using to gain its power?
Kaeya: Seems probable. Let's deal with it.
(After destroying Stormterror's crsytal)
Kaeya: Bravo! What a performance!
Kaeya: You are, to my surprise, a well-trained knight.
Kaeya: The battles you just fought were sights to behold.
Icon Dialogue Talk.png Thanks, that's nice of you to say...
Icon Dialogue Talk.png Not worth complimenting really...
Kaeya: Haha, I see you already have the knightly virtue of modesty.
Kaeya: Stories of your heroic deeds to save Mondstadt from destruction shall be known throughout the City of Freedom, well into the future.
Kaeya: Please do visit me at our headquarters when you have the time.
Kaeya: I also know a lovely tavern, if that's more your thing.

(A cinematic begins)
Cutscene's Travel Log summary:
After finishing some "clean up" with Kaeya, he stays behind by himself to take care of the aftermath — that is to say, taking care of the Abyss Mage pulling strings behind the scenes. As the two confront one another, an unfamiliar red-headed man appears and disposes of the Abyss Mage with ease. Looks like another player has entered the fray...
Kaeya: Quite rewarding, no?
Paimon: We've seized another temple from Stormterror's grasp!
Kaeya: I can take care of the rest here. You go take care of other things while I'm at it.
Paimon: See you later then, bye-bye~!
(The Traveler and Paimon leave)
Kaeya: There's no way hilichurls organized an ambush like this themselves — not with their limited mental capacity...
(A Hydro Abyss Mage reveals itself)
Kaeya: Thus YOU were behind this.
Hydro Abyss Mage: Gohus, Chiso Vonph.
(A red-headed man defeats the Abyss Mage)
???: Knights of Favonius... Always so inefficient.
Kaeya: Agree to disagree. But, your involvement in this just made things a whole lot more interesting.

(After leaving the temple - if this is the third temple that has been cleared, the skies clear up)
Paimon: Phew, it's finally done.
Paimon: Well, all that "ley flow" and "elemental lines" stuff Lisa was going on about should hopefully be back to normal.
Paimon: Wanna go back and see how the Knights are doing?
Paimon: But if you got anything more interesting to do, Paimon can come too!
Paimon: By the way, we obtained another Anemoculus in one of The Four Winds' temples, right?
Paimon: We might come across more of them in the future, so don't forget to offer them to the Statues!

Tutorial Kaeya 3.pngA flamethrower's core is what gives it the energy to shoot fire.

Tutorial Kaeya 5.pngThe blue stone in the center of the room is Hydro Amber. Breaking it will make it rain, making everything in its range Wet.
