In-game character attributes text
Kaeya is an outwardly confident and charming individual with a flair for the dramatic, and is sometimes seen as overly laid-back. He is surprisingly popular among the elderly of Mondstadt, even earning himself the title of "top candidate for grandson-in-law".
He seems to get a kick out of telling bald-faced lies, but this tendency becomes a talent when it comes to his role as the brains of the Knights of Favonius. He frequently does this with thieves and criminals, and then decides whether to arrest them or let them walk free. As long as everything falls into place the way he expects in the end, Kaeya doesn't care all that much about the means.
Unknown to all those around him, Kaeya is drawn to the negative emotions of others. He enjoys putting people into high-stress situations and challenging their values, and does so to both his enemies and his allies. He takes pleasure in seeing the hesitation in his comrades' eyes in the moment just before they dive into battle with him, just as he takes pleasure in the look of fear in his enemies' eyes as they face off against him.
Kaeya’s charisma and determination have earned him the admiration, respect, and favour of many people in Mondstadt, although his love for provoking others also gained him the exasperation of those same people.
Kaeya is a tall young man of lean build with dark skin, noted to give him an “exotic” and foreign look. He possesses sharp, periwinkle eyes with longer lashes than the other male characters, notably with the same diamond-shaped pupils as Dainsleif. He has navy blue hair, accompanied by streaks of lighter blue, which he keep pulled back in a long ponytail that reaches his waist. His bangs all but cover his right eye. Kaeya wears an eyepatch over this eye that he claims he inherited from his grandfather, who he claims was a pirate. This was later revealed to be a lie.
Kaeya’s clothes are form-fitting, consisting of a white fur cloak over a white jacket that exposes his chest, a navy shirt, and slim navy pants. He dons a cape resembling a single wing over his left shoulder. He also wears fingerless gloves marked with the same diamond shape as his eyes, spiked wristbands, a golden earring and chain, a belt that his vision is attached to, and high boots.
Notably, while other Mondstadt characters' vision features three feathers in its wings, Kaeya's vision only features two feathers.
