The Knights of Favonius is the order of knights that protects Mondstadt, founded by Vennessa with the help of Barbatos 1,000 years ago, to prevent aristocrats from ruling the land, as Barbatos originally intended.

The knights act as the lawmen of Mondstadt, keeping its citizens safe and creating and upholding laws for all.

Currently, the Grand Master, Varka, is out of Mondstadt on an expedition with his squad. In his place, Jean, who holds the title of Dandelion Knight and Liontooth Knight, is filling in as the Acting Grand Master.

Description

An order responsible for protecting Mondstadt and its belief of freedom. Despite its members are known as knights, none has been knighted by any royalty - knighthood is a title they earned from the noble duties they assume.

Hierarchy

The Knights of Favonius are traditionally led by a single Grand Master, with a reserve stepping in to perform the Grand Master's duties as an Acting Grand Master should the Grand Master be unavailable or otherwise indisposed.

Knights of Favonius tradition dictated that the titles of 'Lion' and 'Wolf' were reserved for those of great leadership potential. Such individuals would one day assume the position of Grand Master, devoting themselves to the leadership of a multitude of knights and the safeguarding of Mondstadt.[1] As such, the Grand Master and Grand Master's Assistant are knights that have gained one of these two titles. So far it seems that 'Knight of Boreas' counts as a 'Wolf' title, but is more specialized so not everyone with a 'Wolf' title is a Knight of Boreas.

Serving under the Grand Master are the Captains, of which there are ten.[2] Albedo, Kaeya, and Hertha are currently the only known Captains.

There are other subdivisions within the Knights of Favonius, such as the Outriders.

Outriders

"The Knights of Favonius once had a formidable team of archer scouts known as the Outriders."

The Outriders were a subdivision of the Knights of Favonius, established and led by Amber's grandfather. They were trained in his style of archery and use of wind gliders, and were renowned for their skill. However, after his abrupt disappearance, the Outriders lost their discipline and skill while rumors milled that he had defected from the Knights of Favonius. Eventually, they were all but obsolete, with Amber remaining as the division's sole member.
