My home is a country that reveres true beauty and elegance. Some people from other countries may find our dress sense showy and impractical, but for us there is nothing more commonplace.

Fontaine (/fɒnˈteɪn/)[1][2][3][4][5] (French: Fontaine "Fountain") is one of the seven regions in Teyvat. It is the city-state that worships the God of Justice, the Hydro Archon.

Archon Quest Chapter IV: Masquerade of the Guilty takes place in this region.

The God of Justice lives for the spectacle of the courtroom, seeking to judge all other gods. But even she knows not to make an enemy of the divine.

Of the regions of Teyvat, Fontaine prides itself as the hub of culture and the arts; or in the words of Francis, a traveling merchant from the region, "true beauty and elegance." The newspaper The Steambird is the main newspaper of the Court of Fontaine; Mona is a columnist on it, suggesting that they have writers from all across Teyvat.

Trivia

  • Fontaine seems to be inspired by France. It may specifically be based on France in the 1910s, based on the clothing of NPCs from Fontaine (e.g., Caspar).
  • Fontaine means "fountain" in French, which is fitting for the region of the Hydro Archon.
  • Rock 'n' roll originates from Fontaine.[8][9]
  • Xingqiu's novel, "The Legend of Sword," is extremely popular in Fontaine and Inazuma.[7]
  • Yanfei, a legal advisor from Liyue, notes that Fontaine's legal system is notoriously complicated in one of her Voice-Overs.[10]
  • The Chinese name for Fontaine, 枫丹 Fēngdān, may be a clipping of Fontainebleau (Chinese: 枫丹白露 Fēngdānbáilù), a commune in the metropolitan area of Paris.
  • The Kamera comes from Fontaine, as told by Xu when giving you the Snapshots World Quest.
  • Fontaine seemingly makes numerous allusions to the video game series Bioshock. The character Frank Fontaine appears as the main antagonist of the first Bioshock game. The name Fontaine or Fountain could also be an allusion to Ayn Rand's novel "The Fountainhead", from which Bioshock takes inspiration. Moreover, the Steambird could be a reference to the Songbird guarding Elizabeth's tower in Bioshock Infinite. The characters Lyney and Lynette may also be homage to the character Chen Lin, who appears in Bioshock Infinite as well.
    • Moreover, the first Bioshock game takes place in the underwater city of Rapture, while in Genshin Impact, Fontaine is the region of Hydro.
  • In the trailer Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview: Travail, under the title of the quest Masquerade of the Guilty, there is a line written in Teyvat's Latin script. It reads "Iustitia omnia vincit," which roughly means "Justice conquers all," and is modified from the Latin phrase labor omnia vincit.
  • Oceanids are all from Fontaine. It seems like they left their native region because of the ideals of the new Hydro Archon.
  • In Vol. 2 of Heart of Clear Springs, Fontaine is described as "Sapphire-Blue".
  • Midori claims that Fontaine has a "air-rail" system that allows citizens to travel along the sky, as Ramsay wrote in his diary. Although, there is no substantial evidence of this as in the World Quest International Travel Log we find out that most of what Ramsay writes in his diary is fictional.
