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.

Map description

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.

Varka, the Grand Master of the Knights, is currently out of Mondstadt on an expedition with his squad; during his absence, the Dandelion Knight and Lionfang Knight Jean was appointed as Acting Grand Master.

Members follow a strict code of conduct based on the core principles of the Knights, as detailed in the Knights of Favonius Handbook.

Although they are considered separate institutions, the Knights also help manage the Church of Favonius, which is led by Seneschal Seamus Pegg.


The Knights of Favonius are traditionally led by a single Grand Master.[1] Should the Grand Master be unavailable or otherwise indisposed, a second-in-command position exists as a reserve and shall step in to perform the Grand Master's duties as an Acting Grand Master.

Knights of Favonius tradition dictates that the titles of 'Lion' and 'Wolf' were reserved for those of great leadership potential, and that such individuals would one day assume the position of Grand Master.[2] As such, it may be assumed that the current Grand Master and Acting Grand Master's titles, 'Knight of Boreas' and 'Dandelion/Lionfang Knight' are specialized variants of the 'Wolf' and 'Lion' titles.

The highest-ranking positions under the Grand Master and Acting Grand Master are the Captains. There is a total of ten Captains,[3] four of which are currently known (Albedo, Eula, Hertha and Kaeya.) Knights typically belong to a company led by one of the Captains or a special group like the Outriders. Although, there are a few exceptions to this like Klee, who doesn't belong to any company and is taken care of by everyone in the Knights of Favonius.

Becoming a squire can be part of the path to knighthood. 16-year-olds are eligible to become squires.[4]

Having a position in the Knights of Favonius doesn't require a person to be a knight either. For example, Sucrose holds the Assistant Alchemist position, but she's not considered a knight.[5]

Companies exist within the Knights of Favonius, each composed of knights specialized in a certain domain.

The Cavalry[]

This company is headed by Kaeya. All the members of this company (except Kaeya) are currently on Varka's expedition. Diluc was the captain of this company before Kaeya.


This company is headed by Albedo. The Investigation company appears to provide the Knights with inventions to help aid their endeavors, and investigate strange phenomenon.

The 4th Company, Reconnaissance[]

This company is headed by Eula. They often go into the wilderness of Mondstadt to perform reconnaissance and keep an eye on any approaching enemies or strange phenomena. Mika is a member of this company.

The 6th Company, Logistics[]

This company is headed by Hertha. This company's work are the charter and administration of the baggage train, resource management, and record-keeping. They are currently gathering help for potential missions of the Knights, such as dangerous monsters and troubles of Mondstadt's citizens in exchange for some surplus of resources.

The 7th Company, Combined Arms[]

The "Combined Arms Company" is a temporary designation integrating a balance of ranged and melee firepower. According to Phonia, the company is expected to be headed by Commander Frederica Gunnhildr, currently serving as the No. 2 in command of the expeditionary force.

The 8th Company[]

This company likely deals with magic. Its field officer, Nymph is one of the company's only known members, with Lisa having been a potential candidate for captain. It is likely they are the elemental combatants of the Knights.


This additional group is headed by Amber, who is also the only member. They seem to be the archers and scouts of the Knights.

They were a subdivision of the Knights 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.

Church of Favonius[]

The Church of Favonius, while a separate organization, is managed by the Knights of Favonius. It's led by the Seneschal, Seamus Pegg.




  1. While the Traveler is not officially in the Knights of Favonius, they have earned the title of Honorary Knight through handling the Stormterror crisis.
