This page or section is in need of cleanup.
It needs to comply with the Genshin Impact Wiki's quality standards.
It may be disorganized, difficult to reference, have problems with styling or layout, have ambiguous information, or more.
Please help improve this page if you can.
References between Timeline and Nation History subpages need to be standardized to follow the Manual of Style, and need a standardized ref name to prevent errors in the References section.

A very rough estimation of the timeline of the Genshin Impact universe, incorporating historical records, myths, and folk tales. A constant work in progress; take information given with a grain of salt.

To view the timeline by nation, see Region Histories and click on the respective nation's page.

Note: Due this article's size, timelines for specific regions are directly taken from their History subpages. As a result, information related to multiple nations may be duplicated, and updates to their information must be made on those articles.

References are provided as much as possible. Notes expand on the deduction and reasoning used to draw certain conclusions, which can be read either by hovering over (desktop-only) or clicking on the note. Some specific types of notes found on the page:

  • Lore Discrepancy: When information provided in the game is self-contradictory, retroactively changed, or contradicts information from outside media (such as the manga), it is considered a lore discrepancy. This is different from a translation discrepancy, in which information is contradictory or misleading due to inaccuracies in localization. In the case of a lore discrepancy between in-game information and outside media, the in-game information always takes priority.
  • Translation Note: Used when the original Chinese text and then official English localization do not match, or if something is clearer in Chinese. In the case of a translation discrepancy, the original Chinese text always takes priority.
  • Assumptions: To make sense of the lore — which the miHoYo writers often deliberately obscure by withholding critical information until later versions, giving contradictory evidence, and scattering information across various item sets — editors will sometimes make assumptions to determine the order of events or connect pieces of lore together. However, they may be obsoleted and proven incorrect by new lore and story. These notes serve as a disclaimer, and expand on the editors' reasoning for their conclusions.

If you have any proposed changes for the timeline, please leave a comment and cite your evidence.

The Old World[]

All events take place an unknown time in the past, but allegedly predate Morax's birth over 6,000 years ago.

The Seven Sovereigns[]

  • Dragons and vishaps are the dominant species, led by the Seven Sovereigns and the Dragon King Nibelung.[1][2]
  • All elemental beings come from the Light Realm, also known as the Vishap Realm.[3][4]
  • Each of the Seven Sovereigns holds one of the seven elemental Authorities, and they are the strongest dragon of their respective element.[5][6] The world is divided among them, and each one's respective land is attuned to their elemental affinity.[7]
  • In Sumeru, Apep holds the Dendro elemental Authority. She rules the land while nurturing some of the most ancient and primordial beings, which are known simply as Dendro lifeforms.[2]
  • The Hydro Dragon, in addition to holding the Hydro elemental Authority, also presides over the Primordial Sea and could be considered the original "God of Life" as all life on the planet can trace its origins back to the Primordial Sea.[8] Because of this, it is sometimes referred to as "birthing waters" or "amniotic fluid."[9] Life within the Primordial Sea was a collective rather than made up of individuals.[10]

Eternal Throne of the Heavens[]

  • The Heavenly Principles (also known as the Primordial One, or the "eternal throne of the heavens") descends on this world[7] and takes a portion of the Seven Sovereigns' elemental Authorities for itself.[6] It creates the Four Shades, four shining shades of itself, to help fight the Seven Sovereigns.[7]
    • Phanes, a candidate for the identity of the Heavenly Principles, arose from an "egg" as an androgynous figure. For the world to be created, the eggshell had to be broken; however, it used the eggshell to split the "universe" from the "microcosm of the world." It then came to the world as its true lord and claimed the heavens as its eternal throne.
    • Istaroth, the god of time and wind, is likely one of the four shades.[7][Assumption 1]
  • 40 years after the Heavenly Principles appears — The Heavenly Principles and its shades emerge victorious over the Seven Sovereigns, and the world falls under the control of the heavens while the Sovereigns' subjects escape to the oceans. The Heavenly Principles begins creating heaven and earth for the sake of humanity and its creations soon after.[7]
    • This leads to the existence of the Human Realm created by the Heavenly Principles.[4][3]
  • Gnostic Chorus Story — At some point, a kingdom is established in the heavens with a king and two heirs. The first heir is tasked with finding the Genesis Pearl from the Kingdom of Darkness, but she is deceived, and her memory is changed to make her believe she was the queen of the Kingdom of Darkness. The second heir is sent out for the same task, and it is unknown if he succeeded or not.[11]
    • This story is framed as an allegory for the Traveler's story, with the Traveler as the second heir and the Traveler's Sibling as the first heir. While it is not necessarily a retelling of historical events, it may suggest a relationship between the twins and Celestia.

The First Era[]

The term "first era" is derived from The History of the Decline and Fall of Remuria.

  • 400 years after the Heavenly Principles appears — The Heavenly Principles finishes preparing the world for the arrival of humanity. It and one of its shades create all animal life, and humanity creates a covenant with the Heavenly Principles. The Heavenly Principles creates a "sacred plan" for humanity, an era referred to as the "Ark's Opening." Humanity tends to the land and it flourishes, leading to a period known to the Enkanomiyans as the "Year of Jubilee."[7]
    • The Prayer artifact sets — Prayers to Springtime, Prayers for Illumination, Prayers for Destiny, and Prayers for Wisdom — describe a time when the earth was once covered by raw elements — unending ice, flames, and the like. Envoys of the gods made the earth more hospitable for humanity and dwelled among them, while humans could communicate with Celestia directly. The white Irminsul trees, connected to the ley lines in the earth, held great importance in the religious rituals of these ancient civilizations.
    • Life during this era is described as one of abundance and seemingly endless prosperity, and divine envoys with direct connections to Celestia dwelled among humanity.[7][12] The Four Shades are among the divine envoys.[10]
    • Once upon a time, the people of the land could hear revelations from Celestia directly. The envoys of the gods walked among benighted humanity then.[13][14] In those days, life was weak, and the earth was blanketed in unending ice.[13] The eternal ice had just begun to thaw, and the first fires were still new.[14] [...] the ancient flames were extinguished amidst the first falling rains.[15] [...] the waters ran dry as thunder first pierced the skies.[16]
  • The nature of the world Celestia created was cyclical; humanity would thrive and prosper under Celestia's blessings before coming to an end, and then the earth would be renewed and the cycle begins once again.[13] However, humanity was not meant to know this, so when people questioned how long their prosperity would last, the heavenly envoys remained silent.[14][15]
    • To receive answers from Celestia, the people appointed chief priests who, wearing a crown made of Irminsul branches, would head to the depths of the world to attain enlightenment.[14][15]
  • Eventually, humanity grew prideful and ambitious. They challenged the gods' authority, seeking to take the heavens for themselves and control their destinies. This angered Celestia and the heavenly envoys.[15][12]

The Moon Sisters and the Seelie[]

Events in this section run concurrently with those in the events above, although their exact placement in the timeline is unclear.

  • There were three moons, who were sisters named Aria, Sonnet and Canon. They dwelled in the Lunar Palace, changing places three times a month to ride around the heavens in a silver carriage.[17][18][Translation Note 1]
    • Around this time existed the Seelie, a race with beautiful, humanoid forms and great wisdom. They dwelled across the world and were tasked with guiding humanity. They built a large and prosperous civilization across the world and erected large palaces.[19][20][Translation Note 2]

Liyue[]

Inazuma[]

Fontaine[]

  • Towards the end of the "first era" — likely the era established after the Heavenly Principles's rise to power — humanity begins to covet things that belongs to Celestia and attempt to break away from their fates.[24]
  • The people are eventually punished by having their cities destroyed by tsunamis and then buried underwater after 100 days of rainfall, which "drowned all sin and arrogation" and forces humanity to rebuild civilization all over again.[24]
    • Sybilla, a divine envoy tasked with guarding an Irminsul tree, remains as the sole survivor of the flood.[25][26]

The Great War[]

The term "great war" is derived from Neuvillette's Vision Character Story, which refers to a "great war of vengeance" which badly wounded the Heavenly Principles.

  • After his initial defeat when the Heavenly Principles descended, the Dragon King Nibelung continues searching for a way to turn the tides. He eventually discovers the otherworldly power of forbidden knowledge and brings it to this world.[2]
    • Individuals may also have entered Teyvat alongside forbidden knowledge. "Invaders" descend from "beyond the firmament," wreaking havoc across the land and spreading diseases. The Seelie waged war against them, but the forbidden knowledge they held allowed them to break the "shackles to the land."[27]
  • The arrival of the Second Who Came, or the second throne of the heavens, causes war to break out between the Heavenly Principles and the Second Who Came, which results in the destruction of the heavens and earth.[7][28]
    • Enkanomiya falls into the ocean during the disaster and is severed from the surface world.[7]
    • After the war — The Heavenly Principles emerges victorious and forbids knowledge of the history that predated this war.[28]
  • ~6000 years ago (while Morax was young),[29] — The Seelie civilization comes to an abrupt end after a Seelie ancestor falls in love with a certain traveler from afar, possibly as a result of the curse laid upon them that would rob them of their intelligence and strength if they fall in love with humans.[17]
    • Thirty days after they pledge their union in the Lunar Palace, disaster befalls the world and the two attempted to flee from the catastrophe. The calamity caught up to them, however, and they were punished with eternal separation and a curse that robbed them of their memories.[19][20]
    • The moon sisters Aria, Sonnet and Canon witness the disaster that befell the Seelie ancestor and the traveler from afar and mourn their fate. For unknown reasons, their silver carriage is "overturned" while the "hall of stars" is destroyed. The three sisters eventually turn on and kill each other as well. One of their corpses now remains as the sole moon.[17][30]
    • The wolves in Teyvat have a connection to the moon sisters and mourn their fate.[17]
    • The lost civilization that created the Spiral Abyss has heavy connections to the moon and the Moon Sisters.[31]
    • The Solar Chariot falls to the west of what is now Dunyu Ruins, creating The Chasm. This prosperous mining area would sustain the Dunyu area for thousands of years, up until the cataclysm 500 years ago.[32] The tribespeople in the area repair it and eventually it returns to the sky.[29]
      • In alternate versions of the tale, the Solar Chariot is not a literal chariot, but is instead a star which fell into the area now known as The Chasm and returned to the heavens of its own accord during the Archon War.[32]
  • Following the calamity, the heartbroken Seelie withered away in their grief, turning into the small spirit-like forms that are seen today. Cursed to forget their pasts, they pursue the memories they have left by guiding travelers to their old dwelling places, the Seelie Courts.[19]
    • The Seelie Courts in Enkanomiya are notably in better condition than those in Teyvat, which may suggest that the Seelie civilization came to an end around the same time that Enkanomiya fell into the ocean, and thus their courts have been exposed to fewer weather conditions than they would in Teyvat.
    • Not all Seelie withered away into their tiny spirit-like forms; a few managed to retain their humanoid forms. After the fall of the Seelie, a certain wolf-king (possibly Boreas) would meet one of its remnants who had not yet withered away, and befriended her.[20] It is possible she is the "ancient god" from whom Boreas gained his god-like power.[33]
    • A survivor of the Seelie race, heavily implied to be Nabu Malikata, went on to befriend Greater Lord Rukkhadevata and King Deshret.[34][35][27]
    • The divine nails are cast
    • After the war ― The victor of the war — ostensibly the Primordial One — became known as the Heavenly Principles and forbade knowledge of the history that predated this war.[28]
      • When the people of Enkanomiya attempt to return to the surface a year after building the Dainichi Mikoshi, they are unable to find a way out. They believe this "power of prohibition" to be the work of the Primordial One and conclude that the Primordial One emerged victorious over the Second Who Came.[7][28]

Sal Vindagnyr (Dragonspine)[]

  • A group of people seeking refuge from a land of snow and strife[Note 1] find a bountiful and green mountain. They erect a monument on its peak and establish a civilization there, naming it Sal Vindagnyr, and the mountain Vindagnyr. Over time they built a large and extravagant castle on the mountain.[36][37][38]
  • The civilization has a large white tree of great significance, and the princess is born under this tree. Her mother, the priestess, passes her blessings on to the princess, which include the ability to foresee events in the future.[36]
  • At some point later, the princess has a dream of Durin spreading poison upon the land. The people fear that this prophecy is a curse upon them.[39]
  • For some unknown amount of time, Celestia is moored above the mountain of Vindagnyr.[40]
  • The Skyfrost Nail descends from the skies, shrouding the city with clouds and snowstorms.[41] One day, it shatters into three fragments, one of which turns the Irminsul tree into the Frostbearing Tree. The outlander Imunlaukr is living in the kingdom at the time, and the princess gives him a greatsword made of starsilver as he leaves to find answers. She promises to make a fresco for him, hoping to meet again.[37][42]
  • The princess is working on a fresco and her father, the priest, goes up the mountain for guidance since the trees are starting to wither. He hopes that the princess' third painting will be of melting snow, but unfortunately she's unable to finish the painting. The Skyfrost Nail splits in three pieces, then fragments further, releasing three orbs that freeze particular locations, including shattering the white tree. The princess takes the most complete branch and tries to graft it onto another tree, but it withers and she dies next to it. Someone else comes along trying to heal the leylines, but is unable to and buries the princess.[36][37][39][43][44][45]
  • Imunlaukr returns, finding everyone dead. He stores the greatsword made of starsilver among the frescoes and then goes off to fight in a war since he's decided Celestia only cares for bloodshed.[37]

Liyue[]

  • >6000 years agoMorax, a god with dominion over Geo, is born.[46]
  • ~6000 years ago, while Morax was young — The Solar Chariot falls to the west of what is now Dunyu Ruins, creating The Chasm. This prosperous mining area would sustain the Dunyu area for thousands of years, up until the cataclysm 500 years ago.[32] The tribespeople in the area repair it and eventually it returns to the sky.[29]
    • In alternate versions of the tale, the Solar Chariot is not a literal chariot, but is instead a star which fell into the area now known as The Chasm and returned to the heavens of its own accord during the Archon War.[32]
    • The Spiritstone at the bottom of the present day Chasm is a Divine Nail implied to have been cast down during this time period, but it's relationship with the Solar Chariot is unknown.
    • The ancient civilization in this area is destroyed, and the inhabitants move to Chenyu Vale.

Tsurumi Island[]

  • ? years ago ― The civilization on Tsurumi Island comes to an end through unknown means.
  • ? years ago ― An eagle known as the Thunderbird spots a fog-covered Tsurumi Island and decides to make its home there. At some point, objects fall from the heavens — possibly the Divine Nail[Assumption 3] —, one of which lands on Tsurumi Island. This temporarily clears up the fog, only for the fog to return in even greater force later.[47]
    • Humans on the island begin gathering the Thunderbird's shed feathers and worship it, but the bird does not think much of them. The people learned to use Maushiro to locate each other amidst the fog, and they feared and worshipped the eagle. However, the Thunderbird paid them no heed, seeing them as no different from other animals.[47]

Enkanomiya[]

  • The people of Enkanomiya clash with the Dragonheir of the Depths, vishaps who fled into the ocean depths after the Heavenly Principles defeated the Seven Sovereigns of the old world. Because there was no light in the ocean depths, the vishaps had a great advantage.[7]
    • Istaroth, the undying wind and presumably one of the Heavenly Principles's four shining shades, is the only one who does not forsake the people of Enkanomiya,[7] as they are able to detect her undying wind from the depths of the ocean.
  • The sage Aberaku (originally known as Abrax) builds the Dainichi Mikoshi (which he dubbed "Helios"), creating artificial light to drive away the vishaps. It is believed that Istaroth granted Abrax wisdom.[7][48]
  • 1 year after the Dainichi Mikoshi's construction ― People attempt to find the way back to the surface, but are unable to. They interpret this as a ban from the Heavenly Principles, and that meant the Heavenly Principles had defeated the Second Who Came.[7][48]
  • ? years ago ― A cabal of corrupt nobles[49] manipulates the people of Enkanomiya into worshipping the Dainichi Mikoshi as a god, and chose a child to be the Sunchild and rule over the land.[50] The Sunchildren were puppet rulers controlled by these nobles. Abrax, and later Spartacus (Supada no Hiko), opposed the corrupted nobles only to be imprisoned by the Sunchildren.[7][49]

Sumeru[]

Fontaine[]

  • Sometime following its defeat, the original Hydro Dragon withers away.[1][52][Assumption 4]
    • According to the Oceanids, Egeria is created as the Primordial Sea's new heart by the Shade of Life, a divine envoy and one of the Heavenly Principles's Four Shades. Despite being created by a "ruler of humans," Egeria is created entirely from material originating from Teyvat.[10]
    • No new Hydro Dragon can be born so long as Egeria resides within the Primordial Sea.[53]

Khaenri'ah[]

  • ? years ago ― Around the time of Sal Vindagnyr's fall, the Kingdom of Khaenri'ah is established as a godless nation.[54]

Currently Unknown Regions of Teyvat[]

  • ? years ago — The Beast of Thunder enslaved a group of people with lightning and wreaked havoc on the land. The Thundersoother, whose family was killed in some sort of sacrifice, went to the cave of the Beast of Thunder, which was either near or in a volcano. He fought and beheaded the Beast of Thunder, and received a crown for his accomplishment, but spent his final days in solitude.[55]
  • ? years ago — The Berserker's homeland was consumed by flame during a war between gods and mortals. Seemingly the only survivor and a powerful warrior, the Berserker's iron mask was burned onto his face when his homeland fell and he went insane from the desire for revenge against Celestia. He went on a rampage, fighting humans, monsters and gods alike over time. At one point he even apparently fought a single giant monster for several years before killing it. However, it seems he eventually died, either in battle or after defeating whatever his last enemy was.[56]

The Interim Period[]

While not formally established as its own period in time, Liyue lore indicates there was a stretch of peacetime between the Great War and the Archon War.

Mondstadt[]

Old Mondstadt[]

Note: Very little information exists about the region of Mondstadt before the fall of Decarabian's Mondstadt during the Archon War.[Note 2] As a result, the order of events and information listed may be highly inaccurate.

  • ? years ago ― An ancient civilization in the Windwail Highland area establishes Cecilia Garden, where they grew Cecilia flowers in greenhouses.[57]
    • Based on the architectural and ornamentation style of the ruins around Cecilia Garden, it may have been constructed by Decarabian or people from his civilization. However, there is currently no textual evidence of any link between Cecilia Garden and Decarabian's Mondstadt.
  • ? years ago ― An ancient civilization at Starsnatch Cliff establishes the Sommernachtgarten. When the civilization fell, the Sommernachtgarten was buried underground and became Midsummer Courtyard.[58]
  • ? years ago ― At some point, Boreas, known as the King of the North Wind (or some variation thereof), gains his powers from an ancient god[59] and becomes a god himself.[60]
  • ? years ago ― Decarabian establishes his capital city, Mondstadt,[61] in the area now known as Stormterror's Lair.[62] His territory expands to the Brightcrown Mountains and Windwail Highland areas, going as far south as the Teleport Waypoint between Dawn Winery and Stone Gate.[Note 3]
    • Brightcrown Canyon was once filled with Decarabian's soldiers, guarding the entrance to the city. The city, meanwhile, was arranged in a circular formation around Decarabian's tower. Residents were assigned their own spots within the city.[63]
    • Decarabian's tower — which is already located in a very deep valley compared to the rest of modern-day Mondstadt and Liyue — extends even deeper into the ground. However, attempting to reach the bottom level of the aboveground portion of the tower results in an abrupt black screen, after which the player will find themselves on the wind current ledge above it and see unique out-of-bounds dialogue from Paimon: "Watch out! Don't go near there!"
  • ? years ago ― The region of Mondstadt is filled with blizzards, turning it into an inhospitable wasteland. It is caused by Boreas,[64][65] although whether it was intentional or not is somewhat ambiguous.[Translation Note 3] To protect his city from the blizzards, Decarabian creates a storm wall around it.[66]

Liyue[]

Guili Assembly[]

Note: The two main sources of information about the Guili Assembly, Stone Tablet Compilations: Vol. I and the World Quest Treasure Lost, Treasure Found, currently contradict each other on whether Guizhong or Morax descended on the land first and which one moved to the area afterwards. Because Stone Tablet Compilations has more information corroborated by other in-game sources,[Note 4] the wiki will assume it has the correct version.

  • ? years ago — Morax descends on the region of Liyue, where he raises Mt. Tianheng, quells the seas, and lowers the tides.[67] To pacify the seas, he defeats many sea monsters including one beast known as Baqiu.[68] Jueyun Karst was created in such a way at an unknown point in time, with the water being drawn into an underground reservoir.[69]
  • ? years ago — Guizhong, the Lord of Dust, befriends Morax. At some point, she and her people move north of Mt. Tianheng for reasons unknown. Morax and Guizhong establish the Guili Assembly, which derives its name from the first character of Guizhong's name, and one character of Morax's (using his name at the time, which is unknown).[70] This civilization spanned the area between Mt. Tianheng and Stone Gate. It was extremely prosperous, flourishing under the trades of agriculture and mining,[67] and became a trading hub.[69]
    • Guizhong establishes four commandments to guide her people:
      "To unite in ambition is to be steadfast and immovable for all time."
      "Wisdom is like water, it nourishes all those who receive it and in it is a reflection of the truth."
      "Fortify the bones, that movement be supple when the time comes."
      "Virtue grows tall like a tree, though there be shade it will flourish forever."[70]
    • Guizhong and Cloud Retainer, among other adepti, create the Guizhong Ballistas to defend the Guili Assembly from external threats.[67][71]

Lisha Civilizations[]

Note: It is unknown whether the Sea God truly existed or whether he had any link to the Lisha region, but his story and the legends regarding Lisha seem to have some relation.

  • ? years ago — Early civilizations in the Lisha region of Liyue are established at Dunyu Ruins, Lingju Pass, Qingxu Pool. At some point either before or during the Archon War, the civilizations at Lingju Pass and Qingxu Pool were destroyed and submerged underwater, only reemerging after the end of the Archon War.[72]
    • Legends say that these ruins predate the Geo Archon's rule over Liyue. The whole of Lisha was covered by water at the time of the Archon War, and back then this rocky outcrop was nothing more than a little islet that rose above the water's surface. After peace was restored, the region of Lisha unfurled once more as the tides withdrew, revealing the ancient buildings erected by the early peoples.[72]
    • What [Soraya] told me was that these ruins were left behind by an evil god, whose name has been wiped from the record, and its people. But in the end, the sea gave way to forests and fields, the self-serving god was defeated, and the strongholds and temples of the ancient city the god's people once built were left to crumble. That is how Qingxu Pool came to be. The ruins were submerged until the long Archon War finally came to an end, emerging on the landscape as the tide subsided."[72]
  • ? years ago — The Sea God gives his people a year without storms and tsunamis in exchange for a human bride. After many generations, one such bride — whom he had permitted to return to the surface world — caused the destruction of her village after she asked for the Sea God's aid when her daughter was to be taken away from her to be offered as his bride.[73]
    • "The Sea God looked majestic indeed as he sat center stage in his giant clam, holding in his hands the reins of two sea serpents. They stood as imposing as Mt. Tianheng before the royal carriage as their master accepted the gifts of pearls from the village elders and welcomed his new bride aboard the carriage. In return, the village would receive the Sea God's blessing: a year free from tempests and tsunamis."
      [...] The Sea God responded to the call, rising up from the billowing waves to greet the village. But his embrace was a tidal wave that engulfed the village, and took the villagers and elders in their sleep.
      [73]

Chenyu Vale[]

  • The surviving inhabitants of the Chasm civilization relocates to Chenyu Vale.

Other Regions of Liyue[]

  • ? years agoHavria, the God of Salt, establishes her domain in Liyue; the original expanse of her territory is unknown, but it included Sal Terrae.[74][75] She was known for being gentle and kind-hearted, but weak.[76] It is theorized that Liyue's flower ball wedding tradition may have derived from Havria's act of handing out bunches of flowers to her followers.[75]
  • ? years ago — The village at Wuwang Hill is established. It would exist in relative peace until some time after Liyue Harbor was established, after which the bewitching song of a whale-like sea monster (potentially the Oceanid Rhodeia of Loch, considering the monster's physical description and current location) led all the youths of the village to their doom, and its elders died with no one to carry on the village.[77]

Inazuma[]

  • ? years ago ― The Tanuki, creatures native to Inazuma, evolve and gain sentience. The Kitsune immigrate from mainland Teyvat and attempt to colonize the islands, instigating a war between the Tanuki and Kitsune over control of Inazuma.[78][Note 5]
    • 1600 years later ― The Tanuki-Kitsune War finally comes to an end after 1600 years of fighting after negotiating a truce. The Tanuki refuse to admit a loss in the war but cede the "giant Thunder Sakura" (likely the Sacred Sakura) to the Kitsune. Over the course of the war, the tanuki and kitsune's constant transformations and trickery lead members of both groups to become confused on their original identities and allegiances; this resulted in the emergence of humans.[78]

Sumeru[]

Note: It is unclear when the civilization of the three God-Kings, its destruction, and the span of various human city-states existed beyond "thousands of years ago," so they have been tentatively placed under the The Interim Period.

Fontaine[]

  • According to legend, the first Oceanid is born after Egeria sheds the "first tear," which later gives birth to all other Oceanids. Egeria bestows a task to the Oceanids "to seek an understanding of the diverse array of species and to love every creature."[82]
    • To fulfill Egeria's desire to connect everyone in the world, the Oceanids disperse across the waters of Teyvat to act as "spies." However, Rhodeia of Loch denies any ulterior motive on Egeria's part.[83]
  • Some Oceanids soon desire to live on the surface, having seen and envied human life. Not wanting to refuse her followers, Egeria decides to fulfill their request by taking water from the Primordial Sea and pouring it into the Oceanids' "blood" vessels, thus creating humanoid forms for them to walk on land.[84]
    • Celestia deems Egeria's "act of life" a sin and sentences her to be sealed for her crimes. At some point, Fontainians learn of a prophecy claiming that water levels would rise and eventually, the people of Fontaine will be dissolved in order to wash their sins, reverting back into what they once were.[84]

The Archon War (?–2000 years ago)[]

Note: The term "Archon War" is a catch-all term for the various, scattered conflicts across Teyvat to determine who would become one of The Seven, which arose as a result of the creation of the Gnoses. Due to the timeline's ambiguity, this section also includes events after the divine nails were cast down.

  • ? years ago — Seven divine seats in Celestia open up, causing the gods to become embroiled in a bitter struggle for supremacy.[70]
    • Many gods fought for the sake of their ideals for a prosperous humanity. "That which lurks within and animates this relic are the divine remains of lamenting gods. They are unrealized ideals, designs for a prosperous humanity that could never be."[85]
    • During the Archon War, the infighting amongst gods was but one cause of conflict in Teyvat; other creatures and entities also sought to expand their domains, taking advantage of the chaos to encroach on the continent.[86]
      • In Liyue, legends of sea monsters are commonplace due to the "other-shore," a region that lies outside of Teyvat.[87] People in ancient times would use the bones of such sea monsters as figureheads on their ships to frighten away the beasts.[88]

Mondstadt[]

The Age of Kings(?–2600 years ago)[]

  • >~2600 years ago[Note 6]Boreas declares war on Decarabian, but fails to land even a scratch on Mondstadt.[89] The war between the two Kings of Ice and Frost[90] turns into a stalemate,[Assumption 6] and Decarabian's people begin to view his rule as one of despotism and tyranny.[91]
    • A boy only known as the Nameless Bard befriends a tiny, insignificant wind spirit that would later become Barbatos. The boy dreamt of seeing birds in flight, green grass, and the world outside the city.[61]
    • The clan now known as the Gunnhildr Clan once dwelled inside Mondstadt. However, Gunnhildr's father, the clan's leader, grew disillusioned by Decarabian's despotic control and led his people out of the city. Outside the city was only relentless cold and engulfing blizzards, however, and the clan struggled to survive. As they prayed for salvation, a wind spirit that would later be known as Barbatos[Assumption 7] responded to their prayers,[91] as did the God of Time.[92] The clan's faith in the spirit empowers it, granting it more powers that it uses to create a shelter for them.
    • The first wines are brewed in Mondstadt when a certain mischievous wind spirit takes the form of a fox and ferments some apples under a negligent guard's care. When the guard awoke, he bit into one of those apples and, finding that he enjoyed the flavor, squeezed the sack that contained the apples to create wine.[93] Also brewed in ancient times was a wine said to make a person forget the past, used so the people could have the strength to keep surviving.[94]
    • Inside Old Mondstadt, people who grew discontent with Decarabian's rule began planning a resistance. The "Windblume" was used as a code word amongst the resistance, with the Red-Haired Warrior among the first to use this codeword.[95]
    • Leonard the Adventurer invents the wind glider. His life goal is to scale Pilos Peak (now Musk Reef), but he fails his attempt and is forced to turn back. He writes the book "Of Mountains and Seas" as an account of his journey.[96][Assumption 8]
    • Boreas realizes that his blizzards could not nurture life and decides that between his powers and his disillusionment with human society,[97] he did not have the qualifications to become one of the Seven Archons.[98] He chooses to allow his physical body to die while his powers flowed into the land of Mondstadt to nourish it.[65] Despite losing his original physical form, Boreas' spirit remains extant and his powers are still strong enough that he can manifest a body of ice and wind.[99][Assumption 9]
  • 2600 years ago ― Decarabian's people rise up in rebellion, led by the Nameless Bard, Barbatos (then known as the "elf" or "wind spirit"), Decarabian's former lover Amos, a knight (originally referring to the Red-Haired Warrior, now possibly referring to Gunnhildr),[100][Lore Discrepancy 2] and the Red-Haired Warrior.[101] The Gunnhildr Clan, led by its current namesake Gunnhildr, also participates in the battle.[91] Decarabian is slain in the battle, as are Amos[102] and the Nameless Bard.[66] With Decarabian's death, Barbatos is elevated to godhood himself.[66][91] He uses his newfound powers to create a vessel in the form of the Nameless Bard's, and takes up the bow in honor of Amos.
    • The Red-Haired Warrior, for reasons unclear, turns his back on Barbatos and his name is eventually forgotten by the people of Mondstadt, though his deeds are still remembered. He eventually has a family that would eventually produce Ragnvindr and the Ragnvindr Family.[95]
    • Using his powers, Barbatos reshapes Mondstadt, using his winds to blow away the snow and ice covering the land and terraforming the region of Mondstadt in the process.[66][103][104] Among the notable changes to Mondstadt's landscape was the eradication of Pilos Peak, which was turned into the modern-day Musk Reef.[96] He then takes his people from Decarabian's old city and moves to Cider Lake, where they build the modern city of Mondstadt. Prominent clans among them are:
    • The God of Time worked alongside Barbatos for Mondstadt's protection, and both were worshipped by the Mondstadters of old as the "winds of time,"[109][110] with the belief that "Anemo brings stories while Time nurtures them."[105] However, at some point in time, the worship of the God of Time as well as most records of them disappear and are forgotten.[92]
  • ? years ago, after the establishment of Mondstadt ― Seeing that his people had enough wisdom and strength to live on their own, Barbatos departs so he would not be able to become a tyrant.[111]
    • The Windblume Festival is established in memory of those who fought for freedom during Decarabian's reign. The codeword Windblume became conflated with literal flowers,[95] while the festival became one about finding love.[112]

Haar Islands (Golden Apple Archipelago)[]

Liyue[]

The Fall of the Guili Assembly[]

  • 3700 years ago[115] — One particular battle occurs in the Guili Assembly — despite being a nation protected by Morax, Guizhong, and the adepti, it ravages Guili Plains and causes landslides that transform Dihua Marsh from a fertile islet into a swamp. Guizhong is also slain in the process.[67][70] The exact cause of its destruction is unknown and many theories exist among Liyue folklore.
    • >10 days later[116][Translation Note 4] — Following the fall of the Guili Assembly, Morax, Marchosius, and the adepti lead their people south of Mt. Tianheng, where they establish Liyue Harbor. Morax creates a contract with the adepti to defend it.[71][117]
    • The Millelith Brigade is established to protect the people and defend against monsters.[67][118]
    • Morax teaches his people how to create houses, using Mora to create a model home. He also establishes minted Mora as Liyue's currency, for convenience.[119][Note 7]
    • After creating Liyue Harbor, Morax decides to wage war against the other gods, seeing it as the only way to restore order and protect humanity.[117][120]
      • "He sought celestial order, to stay the tide of turbulence.
        Adepti rallied round him, yaksha guardians charged ahead,
        Frightened by the courageous people the demons fled."
        [120]
      • "I wish not for dominion, yet I cannot watch the common people suffer."[117]
  • December 2, >3000 years ago — Sometime either before or during the Archon War, Ganyu is born. She later participates in the war to protect Liyue Harbor, signing a contract with Morax.[121]
    • There are no details on when exactly she was born, however it is speculated that Ganyu may have been alive during the Guili Assembly era based on the wording in her third Character Story.[122]
    • During one battle, Ganyu — who was much more rotund during this time — unintentionally chokes a monster to death when it underestimated her girth and tried to eat her. This incident has led her to maintain a strict diet in order to keep a slim physique.[123]
  • >2000 years agoMorax hears the pleas of Azhdaha, a blind Geo elemental dragon who dwelt beneath the mountains of Nantianmen. He takes pity on the dragon and takes it aboveground, bestowing sight upon it with just a touch. They form a contract, where Azhdaha agrees not to endanger humanity in exchange for living alongside them. Azhdaha then aids Morax in battles across Teyvat.[124][125]
  • 3700–2000 years agoThe following events presumably occur sometime between Liyue Harbor's establishment and the end of the Archon War. The events are listed in a tentative chronological order, but there is no confirmation on when exactly they occurred relative to the present.
    • During a certain battle in the Archon War, the opposing god slashes Mt. Tianheng, creating a crack in the mountain's foundation and threatening to collapse on the village at the base of the mountain. To prevent this, the adeptus Skybracer has a friend cut off his antlers — a gift from Morax himself, made of his divine essence and thus the hardest material in Liyue — and uses them to prop up the mountain. This act causes the mountains to elevate higher than it had been originally. Skybracer then continues to fight until he dies from blood loss, his blood turning into the Bishui River.[126] The people who lived at the base of the mountain held him in high regard for this action, even more so than Morax.[127]
    • Havria, whose gentle nature and weak martial prowess put her at a disadvantage during this brutal era, futilely attempted to peacefully resolve the conflicts that erupted. Realizing it was too late for anyone to stop, she turned her efforts to creating a place of refuge for humans displaced by these wars.[75][76] However, due to her relatively weak powers, she stood no chance against other gods and chose to make concession after concession, until she lost all her lands besides Sal Terrae. There, she created a small city with her followers — but they, seeing that she had no chance of surviving through this war, decided to give her a swift and painless end rather than consign her to defeat at the hands of other gods. However, the power that surged from her body after her death salinified the city and its inhabitants, while her own body withered away into a small salt flower.[74]
      • Her followers who managed to escape salinification were scattered across Liyue after the loss of their god and home. Many went to Liyue Harbor and eventually became Yinyuan Hall of the salt industry, one of the Eight Trades. Some descendants of those people, fearing Havria cursed them for their ancestors' betrayal, risked their lives to enter Sal Terrae and break the sword used to kill her. By the time of the present, however, Havria's story has been twisted among the people of Yinyuan Hall, and they now believe she was a powerful god who was assassinated by Morax out of envy.[74]
    • Morax defeats many gods and sea monsters at Guyun Stone Forest, including the ancient god Osial, by throwing down massive stone spears to pin them to the ocean floor,[128][129][130] and using Sigils of Permission to seal them. The resulting stone formation, when viewed from above, takes the general shape of his own Geo symbol.[69]
      • ~2600 years ago[Assumption 10]Chi (in the ancient language, Qingce) makes its nest in the area now known as Mt. Qingce and takes over the region.[131] Morax fights it at a "great height" and succeeds in subduing it.
        • In fantastical Liyue legends, although Zhongli (Morax) reveals they are merely the product of people's imagination,[132] Chi and its nest transform the area around Mt. Qingce into its current state after its death — its body turns into stone, its blood becomes water, and its scales turn into terraced fields. Even after its death, however, Chi's power seeps into the land, creating the Blood-Fed Trees and suspicious orange stones at Bishui Plain that poisoned the area. To suppress its power, Morax seals its remains in five different locations with Geo Seals and water to prevent its revival.[133]
        • People during this time used images to record major events, purportedly because writing had not yet been invented.[133] The veracity of this claim is dubious since the ruins at Guili Plains use written language, although it is possible that Chi was defeated long before the seals to contain it were created.
      • While combating the other gods and sea monsters, Morax used a variety of methods to combat them: along with massive stone spears (pillars), he also summoned meteors,[134] a Geo Whale,[68] and stone birds.[135]
    • The original village at Wuwang Hill falls after a whale-tailed monster leads the youth to their death.
  • 3000–2000 years ago — Alatus (Xiao), whose true name is yet unknown, is born.[136] An evil god discovers his weakness, using it to enslave him and force him to perform cruel and violent acts. During one battle in the Archon War, the two ran afoul of Morax, who defeats the evil god and liberates Alatus, bestowing the name "Xiao" onto him for his protection. Xiao afterwards becomes one of the Yakshas to repay his debt to Morax.[137]
  • ? years ago — The bodies of the gods and monsters Morax defeated over the course of the Archon War were compressed, decomposed, and became part of the earth, while the gods' spirits lost their senses of self and were no longer capable of holding personal grudges.[138] However, their lingering hatred and resentment still remained, creating miasmas, curses, and monsters. Morax summoned the yakshas, a certain subset of the adepti, to aid him in suppressing these manifestations of evil gods. They carried out this duty for some thousand years, even after the Archon War ended.
  • ? years ago — An unknown doctor takes the frontline in eradicating the karmic disease caused by the corpses of the malevolent gods whom the Yakshas had slain. The negative karma had become a pestilence that spread across Liyue. The bodies of the infected humans only furthered its spread, "as the dead were a breeding ground for the disease".[141] The Rite of Homa prevented further spread by cremating corpses which, eventually, caused the epidemic to come to an end. Furthermore, the pioneers of this practice were the founders of what is now known as Wangsheng Funeral Parlor.[141] The practice and parlor have been passed down from generation to generation. The quote of the family is "only an unbound flame can purify this world."[142]
    • The rite conducted by the staff clears the corpses of traces of evil karma so they are able to free themselves and carry on to the afterlife. Their spirits take the form of an ashen butterfly. The doctors (who eventually became the directors of Wangsheng) have never had any regrets due to their altruistic lifestyle, and as such pass on without regrets, also in the form of a fiery butterfly.[143]
  • >2000 years ago[Assumption 11] — After suppressing all other gods in his region, Morax becomes the Geo Archon, restoring peace to the land now known as Liyue.

Inazuma[]

  • ~2000 years ago ― The twin gods Raiden Makoto (Baal) and Raiden Ei (Beelzebul) slay all other gods in the Inazuma region. Ei, although the stronger fighter, believed Makoto to be better-suited for the role of Archon and sacrifices her body so Makoto can ascend to Celestia. Makoto becomes the first Electro Archon, the God of Eternity[144][Note 8][Lore Discrepancy 3]
    • Makoto uses her new powers to recall Ei's divine will and reforge her body. Ei becomes her kagemusha (body double),[144][145] and most people in Teyvat gain the impression that there was only one god, Baal (also referred to as the Narukami Ogosho, Raiden Shogun).[Note 9]
  • ~2000 years ago[Assumption 12]Orobashi flees from an unknown region to the nation of Byakuyakoku, specifically The Serpent's Bowels. It stayed there for a while until a child from the underground nation found it and asked it to become their gods. Together they fought the Sunchild's reign and came out victorious,[48][146] after which it became known as "Orobashi no Mikoto" and the "Watatsumi Omikami" (Great God of the Oceans).[147]
    • It is supposed that the ban placed by the Heavenly Principles must have been weakened to allow Orobashi to fall to Byakuyakoku.[28]
    • Orobashi supposedly stayed with the people for a while before leading them back to the surface. It used its power to bolster the Dainichi Mikoshi to have stronger light, and eliminate the threat of the Dragonheirs of the Depths.[48][148] It also supervised the research of the Dragonheirs, now called Bathysmal Vishaps.[4]
    • The Divine Priestess was chosen among the sea-daughters who collected pearls,[149] and was likely the origin of the Sangonomiya Clan. Other clans like the Yuna Clan also originated from Enkanomiya.
    • Orobashi had its people adapted to Narukami Island's language and culture to be prepared for a new life above the sea.[4]
    • Orobashi creates Watatsumi Island out of the coral that grew from its body, allowing them to live above the surface once more as part of the Inazuma archipelago.[23]
      • On the last day of Enkanomiya before the people relocated above the sea, envoys from Khaenri'ah along with a Ruin Guard came and stole the book Before Sun and Moon, a book that Orobashi personally placed a ban. Antei fought them and prevented the loss of the book, but was also critical injured.[150]
    • Orobashi's people call this land Sangonomiya, and themselves the Sangonomiya Clan. They begin calling Byakuyakoku, "Enkanomiya," to contrast it with Sangonomiya.[146]
  • ? years ago ― The Kitsune Saiguu is born in the Hakushin Lands.[151][Assumption 13]
    • The Kitsune Saiguu and the bake-danuki Ioroi often compete with each other. One day, Saiguu decides to trick both Ioroi and Baal at the same time: she challenges Ioroi to pluck a Naku Weed from the Tenshukaku gardens. When Baal catches him in the act and nearly kills him for it, Saiguu comes to his rescue and persuades Baal into not only sparing him, but also putting him under her command as the Hidden Protector of the Grove, the protector of Chinju Forest.[152][153]
  • ? years ago ― The Sacred Sakura grows from "her" body after "her" death;[154] at this point, the tree does not have a fox-like appearance.[155]
    • Above is the knowledge of people (excluded Ei) who lived before and in the cataclysm. The true Sacred Sakura was not planted until the present.[156]
    • A ritual involving the worship of both the Raiden Shogun and Orobashi is developed. This ritual must be performed before starting any other ritual. The Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual is also developed at some point, presumably after the aforementioned ritual.[157]
    • The Thunder Sakura are planted across Narukami Island, using branches of the Sacred Sakura and parts of the Electro Archon's own spirit, to absorb filth from the land.[157][158][159]
  • ~2000 years ago[Assumption 12] ― After Watatsumi Island's infertile land leads to years of famine and disease, Orobashi reluctantly agrees to the Watatsumi people's plan to invade and conquer part of Yashiori Island. A brutal war erupts between Watatsumi and the Narukami Shogunate, led by Ei, which ends with Orobashi slain and Watatsumi's major figures either dead or Missing in Action.[160]
    • Major figures on the Narukami side, not including Ei:
      • The Great Tengu Sasayuri, Ei's lieutenant. He is slain during battle, likely against Akuou, who had sought a "joyful" duel against him.
    • Major figures on the Watatsumi side, not including Orobashi:
      • The shrine maiden Mouun was particularly skilled in the Yuna Clan's whale-songs and employed the aid of a massive whale. She taught Akuou and was close to him. During the war, she and her whales were ambushed and killed by Sasayuri's subordinates, and their bodies were taken away by the Shogunate.[161]
      • "Umigozen" Ayame, Mouun's twin sister. She was the general of the Watatsumi navy, and disappeared in the midst of battle with her fate left unconfirmed.[161]
      • The "Viceroy of the East" Akuou, also known as Touzannou, was found as an orphan and taken in by Orobashi, and later trained under Mouun. He conquered one of the mountains on Yashiori Island, which the Watatsumi people called "Touzan" (Eastern Mountain), and built the Formation Estate on top of it. He was ultimately slain alongside Orobashi when Ei used her ultimate technique, Musou no Hitotachi.[162][163][164]
    • Some believe that Orobashi participated in this war, despite oracles of its inevitable failure, due to an order from Celestia.[160]
      • It was revealed that since Orobashi had contacted with the people of Enkanomiya, both Orobashi and Watatsumi as a whole were found guilty of four counts of profanity and eight counts of deceiving living souls. Orobashi was allowed to take all of their transgressions on itself and sacrifice itself so its people would be spared and taken under the rule of Celestia once again.[3]
  • The Tatarigami supposedly spawned after the death of Orobashi in Yashiori Island. Ei created wards called Narukami Pillar to suppress the soul of Orobashi, hence subduing the Tatarigami, while the Yashiori Guardians led by the Kitain Clan also took up the mantle of suppressing the Tatarigami.[165][166][167]

Tsurumi Island[]

  • <2,600 years ago[Assumption 14]Ruu is born among the people of Tsurumi Island and makes preparations to participate in the rituals to the Thunderbird. While practicing his singing, the Thunderbird overhears him and is captivated by the sound of his song. Ruu attempted to befriend the god and give her the name "Kanna Kapatcir," as the Thunderbird had forgotten her own name. They promised to meet each other again in the future.[47]
  • However, as the situation on the island worsened and many islanders left only to never return — which people took as a sign that they had died, when in actuality they had settled onto the other islands of Inazuma — Ruu volunteered to be sacrificed, believing this would please the Thunderbird and bring the missing people back. Instead, she becomes enraged upon witnessing his death, viewing his sacrifice as the killing of innocents and a promise broken, and retaliates by destroying the area and killing the entire tribe. To hear Ruu's singing again, she uses her powers to cause a ley line disorder, resulting in the entire island continuously reliving its day of destruction.[47][168] Afterward, the Thunderbird flies over to Seirai Island.[47]

Sumeru[]

  • Nabu Malikata, Greater Lord Rukkhadevata, and King Deshret befriend each other and become known as the God-Kings of Sumeru.[34][51][171]
  • At some point in time, Nabu Malikata foresaw the coming of the cataclysm. She creates a shard of Khvarena and leaves it in the care of Greater Lord Rukkhadevata.[172]
  • Rukkhadevata would turn the shard into the divine bird Simurgh. She charged Simurgh with "the guardianship of the border between new birth and death".[172]

Ay-Khanoum[]

  • Nabu Malikata, King Deshret, and Greater Lord Rukkhadevata — collectively known as the three God-Kings of Sumeru — build Ay-Khanoum, the "City of Amphitheaters." Its name means "City of the Moon Maiden" in the ancient language of the Jinn.[173][174]
    • Nabu Malikata is said to have an "amicable relationship" with the Jinn.[174]
    • According to some legends, King Deshret captured the Jinn in magic bottles marked by his seal, although the Jinn were also his willing servants in his cause of conquering the world. He created Ay-Khanoum as a city for the Jinn, while they created the entrance to the Mausoleum of King Deshret.[173][Lore Discrepancy 4]
  • Nabu Malikata dies "due to the malice of the burning sun and yellow sand"[174] and the city of Ay-Khanoum is destroyed.[175][176]
    • Nabu Malikata desired a "spectacular death" so that the bitterness of her death would preserve her legacy forever. King Deshret, who was enamored with her, never realized this,[177] sending him into an obsessive spiral over the shared vision the three God-Kings once had.[175]
    • The "promised land of 'Valivija'" is buried by the desert sands, which may correspond with Ay-Khanoum.[176]
    • Following the fall of Ay-Khanoum and the death of Nabu Malikata, King Deshret and Greater Lord Rukkhadevata parted ways to create their own civilizations.[176][178]

Dharma Forest[]

Note: Events in this section are currently assumed to be concurrent with King Deshret's Civilization and Gurabad.

  • After separating from King Deshret, Greater Lord Rukkhadevata comes to the East of the Great Red Sand and creates the Varuna Contraption that terraforms part of desert into a rainforest.[178][179][Note 10]
    • At the border between the forest and the desert, the Wall of Samiel was erected to prevent the forest from undergoing desertification.
    • After the forest labyrinth was created, the lord of the forest Viaghara was born from the moon's reflection on the water, resembling a tiger in shape.[180]
  • With the help of her followers, who would go on to establish the Amurta Darshan of Sumeru Akademiya, Rukkhadevata developed a flourishing rainforest. Sumeru City was built on the Divine Tree, a particularly massive tree located in Sumeru's forest region, and the sages of Sumeru Akademiya assisted Rukkhadevata in managing the nation's affairs.[181]
  • Rukkhadevata also created the Aranara, small plantlike creatures with the ability to control dreams.[182]
  • Thousands of years ago ― Rukkhadevata briefly returns to the desert to help rescue King Deshret's people from the effects of forbidden knowledge, and creates the Akasha System to help combat it by uniting the people's wisdom.[79] However, the endeavor exhausts much of her strength and shrinks her into the stature of a child.[183]

King Deshret's Civilization[]

  • While Rukkhadevata creates a rainforest in a corner of the desert, Deshret continues ruling over the Great Red Sand.
  • Thousands of years ago ― King Deshret eventually succumbs to the "poison" of forbidden knowledge.[81][183][Lore Discrepancy 5]
    • The forbidden knowledge brings calamities upon Sumeru. "People's minds were filled with crazed whispers, dark gray scales spread across their bodies, even the land was stripped of its vigor."[183]
    • King Deshret asks Greater Lord Rukkhadevata for help, for the sake of their mutual friend.[81] The Lord of Verdure gathered the priests, instructing them to build temples and creating Aaru Village as the last bastion of Deshret's civilization. She also expended a great deal of her power to suppress forbidden knowledge and regressed into a childlike form. Even this, however, was not enough; in the end, Deshret sacrificed himself to finally put an end to it.[183]
  • King Deshret's civilization fell and splintered into many smaller, human-led city-states.[184][185]

Gurabad[]

  • The vassal city-state of Gurabad rises after the death of Nabu Malikata, during what is known as the vassal states era.[176][186][Lore Discrepancy 6]
    • The story of Gurabad is first known with the vassal king Ormazd Shah. Ormazd has 300 kins, one of them is Shirin, the half-fairy daughter of him and the fairy foremother Liloufar. Liloufar's three prophecies and three admonitions later become the ultimate destruction of Gurabad.
      • Ormazd adopts Kisra, and give him the surname "Parvez" for his enormous campaign.[176]
      • Kisra Parvez and Shirin are married, though their marriage is not a happy one.[187]
      • Shirin and Kisra murder Ormazd and his 300 heirs, and Kisra takes the title of the vassal king. He adds the name "ravan" to his bestowed surname, and now his name is Kisra Parvezravan.[176][187]
      • The son of Parvezravan and Shirin is born, and is named Shiruyeh. Fearing Liloufar's admonitions, Parvezravan banishes his son, forces him to cover his face, and forbids him to set foot into Gurabad.[187]
      • Shirin disguises herself as a divine princess of the temple to the moon goddess, and gives Shiruyeh false divination to confront Parvezravan. After that, Shiruyeh assassinates his father, claims the throne, and is forgiven by his mother.[187]
      • The reign of Shiruyeh does not last long, as he is forever tormented by inescapable nightmares, until one day he fell into a great black chasm during one such frenzy. After that, a great plague emerged from that chasm, and Gurabad, without its king, collapses due to the calamity and the sand.[187]
      • The fate of Shirin is questionable: some people say that she was subdued by King Deshret, while others say that she is still searching for her son until today.[187]

City-States Era[]

  • Thousands of years ago, after the extermination of forbidden knowledge[184] ― Somehow, a man known as Shah Ramshahr comes to be credited with building the seven towers that were built during the eradication of forbidden knowledge. The towers, which are only known to have been built at the time of King Deshret's death, come to be known as the "Towers of Betrayal."[188]
    • According to inscriptions in the desert, seven cities were built around the seven towers, among which included Ay-Khanoum (which was apparently rebuilt after its initial destruction), Gurabad (a rebuilt version), Saleh, and Tulaytullah.[189]

Fontaine[]

  • Sometime after the fall of Gurabad in Sumeru, Remus arrives in the High Seas seeking a place to die. There, he accidentally discovers the ruins of a forgotten city and meets the city's only surviving inhabitants: Sybilla, a former envoy tasked with guarding the Irminsul tree there, and the other Golden Bees. They foretell that Remus was destined to come here; that he will create a new, prosperous and thriving nation; and that the nation's desire for justice will lead to its downfall. Remus' begrudging acceptance of his destiny causes the Irminsul to turn into a golden ship,[26] which they use to establish the empire of Remuria over the waters.[190]
  • Remus' reign is prosperous, becoming known as the "golden era" and the "grand symphony" of Fontaine. Remus is credited for helping his people develop agriculture, construct giant cities and temples, and spread the beauty of music and art.[191] To push his dream of creating a harmonious, enlightened civilization,[192] he uses the Fortuna to call other tribes to join the empire of Remuria and conquers any tribe which refuses to join him, such as the tribe which Erinnyes and Cassiodor hailed from.[193]
  • After turning Remuria into a flourishing civilization, Remus' worries about its future leads him to seek a way to avert the destruction which Sybilla had prophesied. Though she believes it to be a futile effort, citing the rise and fall of civilizations as the law of Fortuna, she points him to Egeria, who was imprisoned in the depths of the Primordial Sea, to find a possible solution.[194]
    • Scylla, who is guarding Egeria's prison, attacks him, and they battle for thirty days and thirty nights. Afterwards, their exhaustion gives Remus an opening to explain the reason for his arrival. Bemused by Remus' futile dream, Scylla grants him passage to visit Egeria.[195]
    • To Remus' dismay, his meeting with Egeria yields no results, as Fontaine's fate was sealed by her "original sin" of creating a new race of humans using the Primordial Sea's power.[195][196] Egeria gives Remus a goblet of primordial water, which he intends to use to "create a world of endless prosperity, one without conflict." Intrigued by Remus' ideals, Scylla decides to leave the Primordial Sea to join his cause.[197]
  • Remus believes that so long as the "harmonious symphony of prosperity" continues to play, Remuria will prosper forever. He sets about perfecting his civilization, paying particular attention to his capital city, Capitolium.[24]
    • Hoping to make Remuria's peoples escape the flood, he mixes the primordial water with an immortal stone to create a Golden Ichor who would contain the souls and minds of his peoples and places this Ichor full of souls into Golems, and tries to replace the entire Primordial Water with his golden Ichor.[24]
    • To escape the prophecy, Remus aims to eliminate all which might bring about such destruction or who does not accept his rules: Lochfolks, Vishaps, Barbarians.[198]
  • Barbarians and Vishaps eventually start a rebellion under the leadership of Scylla against Remus and his golem army and golden troupe.[199]
    • Remus eventually realizes his wrongs while Remuria is being destroyed and gives out his final orders, attempting to restore peace back to Remuria.[200]
    • The Harmost Boethius sees his retreat as a betrayal, steals the golden Ichor and seals the Dragon Scylla with it.[200]
  • Remuria and its peoples are sunk under the sea at the same time the Dragon is sealed.[201] The golden Ichor is eventually corroded by the Primordial Sea and the survivors turn back into "Barbarism and Annihilation".[192]
  • After Remuria is destroyed by conflicts and rebellions, Celestia commands Egeria to return from her primeval prison to take over Remus' position and rule Fontaine.[202]
    • Egeria returns to Fontaine and gathers the survivors, mediating between their feuds, and instructs them to establish new cities around flowing springs, thus commencing an era guided by law which endures to the present day.[24] She is awarded a Gnosis,[10] ascends as the Hydro Archon, and becomes one of The Seven.[203]

Khaenri'ah[]

  • ? years ago ― Khaenri'ah is ruled by the Crimson Moon Dynasty.[204]
    • At some point, the Crimson Moon Dynasty is replaced by the Eclipse Dynasty as the ruling dynasty of Khaenri'ah.
  • Perinheri arrives in Khaenri'ah from another world and is accepted into an orphanage.[205]
    • Perinheri eventually becomes one of the mightiest figures in the kingdom, known as Perinheri the undefeated.[204]
  • At some point, the development of Field Tillers (Ruin Guards) and other machines now known as Ruin Machines began, likely with the purpose of combating Celestia.[206]
  • >2000 years ago ― A diplomatic team from Khaenri'ah, including Oogura and Ooshima, travels to Enkanomiya.[Note 11] The team attempted to steal the forbidden book Before Sun and Moon, but the attempt is thwarted by Antei, who managed to destroy their Ruin Guard at the cost of his own life.[150]

Post-Archon War[]

  • 2000 years ago — The Archon War comes to an end as the final divine seat in Celestia is claimed, cementing the positions of The Seven's original members.[207][208] Defeated gods who refused to live under The Seven's rule fled to islands in the Dark Sea, where they became evil gods.[209]
    • After Barbatos pays a visit to Morax — not in need of assistance, but rather to explore the neighboring country — the first iteration of The Seven would often gather in Liyue Harbor.[46][207][208]
  • 2000–500 years ago — Over the course of 1500 years, the original Cryo, Dendro, Electro, Hydro, and Pyro Archons pass away, leaving only Barbatos and Morax as the remnants of the original Seven.[46][207][208] It is unknown how many times those positions have changed hands, but they have since been replaced by the Tsaritsa, the Lesser Lord Kusanali, Ei, Focalors, and Murata, respectively. Of them, the Lesser Lord Kusanali is the youngest, having been born after the cataclysm 500 years ago.[210]
    • The original Seven's sworn duty to guide humanity is no longer honored by some of the newer Archons.[208]

Mondstadt[]

Mondstadt's Aristocratic Period (2600–1000 years ago)[]

Early Aristocratic Period (2600–1600 years ago)[]
  • <2600 years agoDvalin, an elemental dragon, is born from pure Anemo energy located in the high heavens. The birth of an elemental dragon is a rare occurrence, and such dragons are equal in strength to the gods; historically, they have come to blows with the gods of old. However, Barbatos befriended Dvalin and the dragon became the first among the Four Winds to be worshipped by humanity.[211]
  • ? years ago[Assumption 16] ― The Hexenzirkel challenged Barbatos into a fight, but he refused and offered to resolve the conflict through song instead. From then on, they became allies, and Barbatos agreed to conceal one of the group's meeting place and its lantern.[212]
  • ? years ago ― Barbatos departs, and a class of aristocrats blessed with divine powers arose as leaders of Mondstadt. The clans in the aristocracy derived their lineages from heroes who lived during the early ages of Barbatos' Mondstadt.[213] Known clans include the Lawrence Clan, Gunnhildr Clan, and Imunlaukr Clan.[214]
    • Venerare, leader of the Lawrence Clan at the time, built the Barbatos Statue in front of the Favonius Cathedral to commemorate Barbatos' descent. Beneath the statue was an inscription written by the leaders of the clans, pledging their defense of Mondstadt.[108]
  • During this time, the people of Mondstadt worshipped both Barbatos and the God of Time. However, at some point, the God of Time and the worship of them were forgotten by the people of Mondstadt.[215]
  • Many of the festivals and customs in Mondstadt were enacted by the aristocracy for the betterment of the common people.[213] Such festivities included:
    • Hunting, a regular hobby of the aristocracy in which they worked alongside the common people and shared the spoils.
    • Ludi Harpastum, a 15-day festival which celebrates the blessings of wine, song, and flight Barbatos bestowed upon the people of Mondstadt.[104]
    • Windblume, a festival that celebrates the Thousand Winds.
    • Weinlesefest, a festival that celebrates the return of the Anemo Archon when the west wind blows every fall during the harvest season.
  • 2600–500 years ago[Note 12] ― The incident known as "The Tyrant's Final Fury" occurs.
    • For about one year, the first Field Tiller shot missiles from Stormterror's Lair at anyone who approached.[216] The first Field Tiller had wandered into the abandoned tower of Decarabian after being damaged by Lupus Boreas, who mistook it for a challenger when it wandered into his arena.[216][217]
Late Aristocratic Period (1600–1000 years ago)[]
  • ? years agoUrsa the Drake starts terrorizing Mondstadt.[104]
  • ? years ago ― The Lawrence Clan became the foremost clan in Mondstadt and became the main rulers of the city.[104] However, they grew corrupt and fell to degeneracy, eventually becoming tyrants who enslaved and tormented the common people while viewing themselves as overlords and kings.[107]
    • The Gunnhildr Clan allegedly maintained its honor,[91] but were less influential than the Lawrence Clan which ruled Mondstadt. The status and fate of the Imunlaukr Clan are unknown, while other clans among the aristocracy followed the Lawrence Clan's lead.
  • ? years ago ― The aristocracy used various methods to control the people and keep them ignorant. Anyone who posed a threat to their reign was enslaved and used for labor or entertainment;[213][218] knowledge of the past was suppressed, and cultural and historical relics that would point towards the truth were taken down.[108]
    • The knight order at the time, who referred to themselves as the "starlit knights," served the aristocracy and upheld its degeneracy, using their strength to oppress the commoners.[111][219]
    • The royal mages no longer instilled virtue in the nobles, and instead helped them keep the people ignorant. The Church also used their influence to justify the aristocracy's actions and keep the commoners from realizing the truth.[220]
    • The Church of Favonius suffers a schism, with the higher-ranked clergy backing the nobility.[221]
  • >1010 years agoVennessa and her younger sister Lind are born into a nomadic tribe of the southern plains, exiled from its homeland for reasons unknown.[218][222]
    • 1010 years ago ― After running afoul of Ursa the Drake and being starved by the dragon over the course of several days, she and her people flee to Mondstadt, only to be enslaved by the aristocracy.[104] Because of her great strength, Vennessa was made into a gladiator, bound by chains. The chains themselves could not bind her; as a child of Murata, Mondstadt's ordinary-quality ores and lack of her homeland's divine flame meant its metals were nothing before her strength. What kept her subservient was her responsibility to her people.[223]
  • ~>1000 years agoEberhart, an illegitimate heir to Landrich's clan, was a particularly manipulative and ruthless figure who lived at the end of the aristocratic era. He grew up in a noble home with his older half-brothers, Parsifal and Ingbert. Due to his illegitimacy, he was never looked on the same way as his older half-brothers which bred discontentment within Eberhart. He also knew how far the aristocracy had fallen from its golden days and sought to restore the ancient aristocracy's glory. To this end, he used his cunning to become a key figure in the aristocracy's downfall.
    • ? years ago ― Eberhart goaded his older half-brother Parsifal's love of chivalry and play-acting,[224] convincing him to become a Phantom Thief, then deceived him in some unknown manner, forcing Parsifal to flee Mondstadt and removing him from the line of succession.[225]
      • During the late Aristocratic Period, spears and polearms came to be viewed as weapons used by lowly commoners and slaves, likened to gladiators' weapons compared to the noble and elegant sword. However, Eberhart secretly trained to use one in order to overthrow the aristocracy,[226] and even became the disciple of the witch who created the Crescent Pike, using her love for Parsifal to get close to her before discovering her weakness and killing her.[225][227] It appears that he took up the lance to gain an element of surprise against Ingbert, a Vision user, who would have easily bested him in combat otherwise.[224][228][Assumption 17]
  • >1000 years ago[Assumption 18] ― The Wanderer's Troupe is established, comprised of people from all over Teyvat.[229] It was both a musical troupe and a militaristic troop, gaining the moniker "Swordsman's Troupe" as they traveled throughout the continent. At one point, they faced an unknown foe in the Mare Jivari, and they made their final stop in the City of Mondstadt. They tried and failed to overthrow the aristocracy, and most of its members were slain during the battle, enslaved afterwards, or fled.[230][231] Known members include:
    • The founding member was the Conductor who wielded The Widsith, a collection of the Troupe's travels and musical compositions. He was slain in battle.[231]
    • The Sojourner, also known as the harpist and lyrist, who wielded The Stringless. He hailed from Fontaine and left his home country in search of his true fate. He was the second member of the Troupe, having met the conductor by chance. He fell in love with a Mondstadt girl, only for her to be chosen as the Ludi Harpastum princess — which meant she would be claimed by a member of the Lawrence Clan. In the attempted rebellion, he lost his life to protect his allies.[229][232]
    • The Dawnlight Swordswoman, also known as the sword dancer, wielded The Flute and was the third to join the Troupe.[232] She was enslaved after the attempted rebellion and turned into a gladiator, where she ultimately met her end. Even while enslaved, she sang of freedom and openly questioned the aristocracy's reign and the people's acceptance of their rule. Her interactions with Ragnvindr inspired him to rise up against the aristocracy, and he adopted her epithet in his title, "Dawn Knight."[233][234]
    • Kreuzlied, who abandoned the Lawrence Clan, was the fourth to join the Troupe.[232] He wielded The Bell and is the only known survivor of the Troupe, spared because of his lineage. Despite the Troupe's disbandment, Kreuzleid did not give up resisting the aristocracy; he established an underground organization, which would remain active even 500 years later, and used it to aid Vennessa's rebellion.[235]
      • 500 years later, it was secretly used by Rostam to aid the Knights of Favonius from the shadows. It is unknown whether the organization is still active in present day.[235]
  • ? years ago ― After many years of loyally fighting under his master Eberhart, the Gladiator who wielded the Deathmatch (and who the Gladiator's Finale set belongs to) meets his end at Vennessa's hands. Despite fighting many bloody battles for Eberhart's and his own glory, even after he had already won his freedom — having been manipulated by Eberhart into continuing — the Gladiator finds that Eberhart had already left the scene for reasons unknown.[236][237]
    • ~1000 years ago, after the Gladiator's death[238] ― Landrich organizes an aristocracy-led expedition to Sal Vindagnyr, hoping that the expedition will be a great success and their achievements will quell those hoping to rebel against the aristocracy. The expedition party included Ingbert, Eberhart, Luther, Nick, and several other promising young aristocrats. However, the expedition party never returned, so documentation on the event is sparse.[239]
    • Sometime after arriving at the mountain, the team gets caught in a snowstorm and the unnamed members get separated from the others, who meet up at the South Base Camp. Eberhart convinces the others that the unnamed members should be able to find their way back to the camp, and additionally persuades them to investigate a secret room that supposedly contains frescoes and weapons forged from starsilver.[240]
    • Not only are they unable to open the locked door of the secret room, but a cave-in kills Nick, burying his supplies with him. Returning to the South Base Camp, they notice the unnamed members have still not returned and Luther hopes they made it back down the mountain to get help. They decide to return to the original plan of exploring the cellar in the southwestern ruins once the storm dies down a bit.[238]
    • Eberhart leads Ingbert and Luther into the cellar and then takes out a polearm, striking Ingbert first and trying to kill them both. While he gravely injures both, Ingbert uses his Vision to launch a counterattack,[228] forcing him to retreat heavily injured. While bleeding out in the cellar, Luther realizes Eberhart's large-scale scheme, writing down an apology to Priscilla before leaving a message for whoever reads the journal to warn Landrich.[224]
    • After leaving the cellar, Eberhart takes refuge in an area where a prison used to be and plans to follow the waterway to where his supplies are hidden. Either at the prison or between there and the supplies, Ingbert catches up to him and Eberhart manages to kill him. Eberhart then heads east to reach the sea and finds his boat and more supplies untouched. He then leaves for Mondstadt with the knowledge that if news reaches the city, Priscilla — who unbeknownst to Luther, was one of Eberhart's co-conspirators — will warn him by lighting a torch at Stormbearer Point.[228] However, there are no records of Eberhart's return, leaving his ultimate fate a mystery.[239]
      • Eberhart's boat never reaches the shore and the waiting Priscilla gets caught by the nobles after the plot is revealed.[241]

Mondstadt Reborn (1000–500 years ago)[]

  • 1000 years ago, after Ludi Harpastum[Assumption 19] ― The prayers and cries of the oppressed awakens Barbatos from his slumber, and he descends on Mondstadt under the guise of Venti. He befriends Vennessa after she raised the ire of Barca Lawrence, the heir to the Lawrence Clan, and was sentenced to undergo a series of gladiator matches to win her and her people's freedom. Her last battle is against Ursa the Drake itself, as Lord Lawrence had bartered with the evil dragon to give Mondstadt peace with her and her tribe as an offering. At this moment, Barbatos descends on the battlefield and reveals his true form, giving Vennessa the power to prevail against Ursa and freeing the people from the aristocracy's villainy.[104][242]
    • The above is the official history recorded by Mondstadt's historians. However, this was the beginning of a longer rebellion, during which Barbatos forged a contract between the aristocracy and Morax, claiming that the aristocrats had sold all of Mondstadt to the Geo Archon — including their own troops. After it was discovered, this "treachery against the wind" caused the troops to rally against the aristocracy, hastening its end. Only many years later did scholars discover that this treaty was fake.[111]
    • Ragnvindr[243] and Kreuzlied[235] are among those who assisted Vennessa's rebellion, as were adherents to the Church of Favonius mobilized by the Nameless Shepherd.[221] It is unclear whether the rebellion Eberhart intended to assist when he sabotaged the Dragonspine expedition was Vennessa's, or if it was a different one that was being plotted around the same time.
  • After Vennessa's rebellion succeeded, most of the aristocracy and those who had collaborated with them, such as the royal mages, are exiled from Mondstadt.[244] Those who proved themselves uncorrupted, such as the Gunnhildr Clan, were allowed to remain.[91]
    • Vennessa establishes the Knights of Favonius, with herself as its first Dandelion Knight and Grand Master, and restores the Church of Favonius to prevent tyrants from taking over Mondstadt again.[222][245][246]
      • After the Knights of Favonius was established, a certain Knight of Boreas arrives at Mondstadt and joins them.[247] However, the wolf companion he originally journeyed with chose not to follow him into the city, preferring the wilderness. The two continued to fight together whenever the Knight left the city to hunt or do battle. When the wolf dies of old age, the Knight buries it in the remote countryside and leaves the Knights of Favonius to become a wanderer.[248]
    • Ragnvindr converts the aristocrats' indoor bathhouse into the original Mondstadt Library. It would eventually become the largest library in all of northern Teyvat, up until the Great Fire of Fall Equinox reduced it to one-sixth of its original size.[243]
      • The Barbatos Statue, which was originally erected by Venerare but taken down by the late aristocracy, is also restored, though the original inscription on it has been lost.[108]
  • ? years ago ― The Four Winds are established, with Boreas as Wolf of the North and Dvalin as Dragon of the East. Vennessa was simultaneously the Lion of the South (as the first Dandelion Knight) and Falcon of the West.[246][Lore Discrepancy 7]
  • ? years ago ― Vennessa is chosen by the gods and ascends to Celestia at Windrise. A massive oak tree grows where she stood when she ascended.[111][249]
    • This tree has a mysterious connection to Celestia; Venti channels power from it to purify himself from the Abyss' influence,[250] as well as to heal his body after getting his Gnosis forcefully taken by Signora.[251]
  • ? years ago ― The Great Fire of Fall Equinox reduces the Mondstadt Library to one-sixth of its former size. However, the contents within the library's restricted section, located behind the poplar doors in the library basement, were left untouched.[243]
  • ? years ago ― Boreas and his wolf pack did not originally live in Wolvendom, but moved there at an unknown point in time.[93] It is unclear whether the Temple of the Wolf, located near the Thousand Winds Temple, formerly housed Boreas' spirit.

Liyue[]

  • After Barbatos pays a visit to Morax — not in need of assistance, but rather to explore the neighboring country — the first iteration of The Seven would often gather in Liyue Harbor.[46][207][208]
  • 2000 years ago — With their combat prowess no longer needed, some adepti seclude themselves in Jueyun Karst. Others ask Morax to transform their mortal bodies into stone, resulting in the stone figures seen around Liyue.[252]
    • Unlike the adepti, the Yakshas suffered a gruesome fate. The hatred emanating from the demons tainted their souls, while the unending slaughters they participated in accrued karmic debt. One by one, the yakshas went mad, died, and/or disappeared.[120][129][253]
      • Bonanus and Menogias most likely both died when the two fought against each other. Indarias went mad with fear and was also dead.
    • The Liyue Qixing, an organization comprised of the seven foremost businesspeople in Liyue Harbor, are established.[254] Ganyu becomes secretary to the Liyue Qixing.[46]
  • ? years ago — A martial nomad named Guhua was known throughout Liyue; his life is shrouded in mystery, but some claim he was an adeptus and ascended to Celestia at the end of his journey. After his ascension, a person who was close to him established the Guhua Brotherhood in his honor.'[255] After several hundred years, however, the organization dwindled and became the Guhua Clan.
  • March 3, ? years agoQiqi is born as a human.
  • ? years ago — During one of the battles between adepti and demons, the herb gatherer Qiqi ran afoul of the combatants and became trapped between life and death as a result. Her desire to live granted her a Vision, which the adepti saw as a divine blessing. To save her life, each gave her a portion of their adeptal energies; her life was indeed spared, but she was turned into a zombie, and her mortal vessel could not handle the adeptal power and she went berserk. To quell the disturbance, Mountain Shaper trapped her in amber, where she would remain for several hundred years.[256]
  • >1000 years agoAzhdaha begins to forget those around him, his memories eroding. Morax attempts to help him fix his deteriorating memory, but the solution doesn't work. He begins to become irritable, his spirit naturally angry for whatever reason.[257]
  • 1000 years ago — The people of Liyue mine in the mountains, overexploiting the area for resources. This causes the Ley Lines to quake, causing great suffering to Azhdaha, who is sustained and nourished by their energy. The pain, combined with his inability to recognize his loved ones, enrages him, and he attacks the Chasm in an attempt to stop his anguish.[257] He destroys the settlement at Tianqiu Valley in the process.[258]

Inazuma[]

Fontaine[]

  • Egeria exiles all of the criminals from her nation, who live in misery as they are shunned by society.[190]
    • Eventually, some of these criminals beg for forgiveness, which Egeria heard through the waters. Egeria grants their wish for redemption, ordering them to guard her secret — the entrance to the Primordial Sea — beneath the waves. This results in the construction of the Fortress of Meropide, where the prisoners live and guard the path to the Primordial Sea. However, this secret would eventually become forgotten over time.[190]

Natlan[]

  • >1000 years ago[Assumption 21] ― A historical figure named Tenoch, known for his giant obsidian club, recruited allies from each of the six major tribes of Natlan to defend Natlan against a "turbid black tide."[261]
  • >1000 years ago ― The Pyro Archon, Murata, held martial arts tournaments between Natlan tribes.[104][Note 13]
    • ? years ago ― For reasons currently unknown, Vennessa's tribe — the Children of Murata — leave Natlan and wander the plains for many generations, until they run into Ursa the Drake 1010 years ago.[104] (See Vennessa's section)

Golden Apple Archipelago[]

  • <2600 years ago ― After Minacious Isle is formed,[262] a group of people gets shipwrecked there,[263] including a grandmother with a family heirloom from her hometown.[264] These people go on to live across the archipelago[262] for at least five generations.[265]
    • The speakers of Conch Retrospection I: Songs of a Distant Home (Five Mountains, Two Paths, One River, Four Winds, and Clan of Song) span a minimum of four generations starting with the grandchild of the first grandmother (the addressee and speaker, respectively, in Five Mountains), or five when including the first grandmother. It is unknown how many generations are not represented by the Echoing Conches. The tightest plausible timeline is as follows:
      • Let Person Z be the speaker of Five Mountains. Her grandchild, who she speaks to in Five Mountains, is Person A. Person A is from generation #1.
      • The speaker of Two Paths could be Person A (generation #1), now grown. She could be referring to herself as "Mommy" in third person, because she may be addressing her child. She speaks to Person B, who would be from generation #2.
      • The speaker of One River, "Grandma," could be Person B (generation #2), now grown. She speaks to Person C, who would be from generation #4.
      • The speaker of Four Winds could be Person C (generation #4), still a child.
      • The "Mother" in Clan of Song is likely not the speaker of One River, as while they both sound elderly, they have different voices.[Note 14] She could be the mother between Person B (generation #2) and Person C (generation #4), which would make her from generation #3. This would also make the other speaker in Clan of Song Person C (generation #4), now grown.
  • 500 years ago[266] ― A pirate crew from a Shogun-ruled Inazuma[267] is separated when their boat splits in half. One group gets shipwrecked on the Nameless Island between Broken Isle and Twinning Isle, while the other group drifts southeast until they end up southeast of Twinning Isle. The pirates lose all of their treasure except for a samurai puppet that they stole, which is later relocated to the Central Platform.[263][267][268][269]
  • 500 years ago ― The pirates and islanders figure out a way to get off the archipelago.[263][270][271][272][Note 15]

Pre-Cataclysm (>500 years ago)[]

Mondstadt[]

  • >500 years agoArundolyn, Rostam, and Rosalyne-Kruzchka Lohefalter are born.
  • >500 years ago ― Arundolyn and his childhood friend Rostam grow up together in Mondstadt and eventually both join the Knights of Favonius. Arundolyn becomes the Grand Master known as the "Lion of Light," while Rostam becomes the "Wolf Pup."[273][274][275]
    • Rostam gained the title of Wolf Pup when he was 27 years old.[276] He preferred doing dirty work in the shadows, without restraints of being a knight, so that Arundolyn could remain a model knight.[277] It is said that he continued running the secret society established around 500 years earlier by Kreuzlied.[235]
    • Rostam taught the Knights of Favonius his sword style, the Favonius Bladework, which continues to be used to this day.[276][277] Arundolyn's fighting style, which wielded a greatsword in one hand and a longsword in the other, required immense strength that few were able to replicate, and so it soon died out.[273]
  • >500 years ago ― Rostam and Rosalyne-Kruzchka Lohefalter fall in love.
  • >500 years ago, just before the cataclysm ― Rosalyne leaves Mondstadt to study at Sumeru Akademiya.

Liyue[]

  • Morax signs a contract with an unknown party, agreeing to not disclose whatever is about to happen in the cataclysm.[257]
  • Among the five Yakshas, only Bosacius and Alatus remained. Before he went insane, Bosacius wished to seal off his treasure and to be done with this world.[278]
    • After Bosacius went insane and abandoned his post, he was drawn by the conflict of The Chasm and went there to fight.[140]
    • Ultimately, Alatus (Xiao) became the sole known yaksha left in this world.[253]

Inazuma[]

Fontaine[]

  • While knowing she could not make an enemy of the divine, Egeria did not want harm to befall her followers because of the prophecy. She assigned Focalors, one of her Oceanid followers, to be her successor, hoping that she would be able to concoct a plan to deceive Celestia.[285]
  • The Fleuvre Cendre, ruled by the outlaw Eduardo Baker, runs afoul of the bureaucracy of the Court of Fontaine; it is raided by the Maison Gardiennage and its leaders arrested. Eduardo is sentenced to exile in the Great Red Sand.
    • The Siege of Poisson — While being led to exile, Eduardo is freed by his henchmen and flees to Poisson, taking the Maison Gardiennage personnel who had been escorting him as hostages. Poisson is razed in the ensuing battle between Eduardo's faction and the Gardes, resulting in the deaths of many of its residents. The mayor of Poisson, Renault de Petrichor, likely died in the siege.
    • In the aftermath of the siege, Renault's son, Rene de Petrichor, and Eduardo's son, Jakob Baker, are sent to the Narzissenkreuz Institute, where they befriend Alain Guillotin and Mary-Ann.

Khaenri'ah[]

  • >500 years agoDainsleif is born.
  • The Traveler's sibling arrives in Khaenri'ah.
  • ? years agoPierro is unable to stop the ruler of Khaenri'ah or the sages from "tearing away the veil of sin." This results in Khaenri'ah's destruction at the hands of the Heavenly Principles.[286]

The Cataclysm (500 years ago)[]

  • Monsters from the Abyss invade the aboveground world of Teyvat, causing widespread devastation.[287]
    • The people of Teyvat attribute the creation of these monsters to a "great sinner," Gold,[287][211] also known as Albedo's master and mother Rhinedottir.[288] Her creations, the Alfisol were the advance guard for the monsters from the Abyss[289]
  • The Kingdom of Khaenri'ah is destroyed by the Heavenly Principles,[155] causing the fall of the Eclipse Dynasty and the entire civilization.[211] Khaenri'ah's destruction causes a devastating ripple effect.[290]
  • Aether and Lumine fall to Teyvat while traveling between different worlds after their home world was destroyed.[291] They crash-land and fall unconscious from their "meteorite" impact.
    • The Traveler's sibling wakes up first and learned more about Teyvat. The sibling witnesses the cataclysm[292] and the Gods destroying Khaenri'ah. They rush back to their impact-point and wake up The Traveler, showing them the destruction that's being wrought in Khaenri'ah.[293][294]
      • Due to the Traveler's sibling's journey with Dainsleif taking place after the cataclysm, it is presumed that the sibling here has only briefly explored Teyvat before encountering the cataclysm.[295][296][Assumption 23]
    • Before meeting the Unknown God, Lumine twines an Inteyvat in her hair.[297][298]
      • If Aether is chosen as the Traveler, it is implied Lumine picked the flowers from Khaenri'ah herself. If Lumine is chosen as the Traveler, it is implied Aether gifted them to her after returning from Khaenri'ah to wake her.
    • The twins attempt to leave immediately, only to be stopped by the Unknown God. The twins battle against the Unknown God in last-resort attempt to leave, spawning wings and custom swords. The twins lose the fight, with the Unknown God trapping the Traveler's sibling first within a cube, and then the Traveler after they attempt to free their sibling. The Traveler falls asleep within the cubes once again for the next 500 years.[293][297]

Mondstadt[]

  • During the cataclysm, The Knights of Favonius, led by the current Grand Master Arundolyn and Rostam, go on an expedition to Khaenri'ah to fight the monsters.[274]
    • Rostam mentors a man known as the White Knight (possibly "Roland"[299] who loved justice above all else and fought against the monsters of Khaenri'ah.[277][300][301] As he fought monsters, he came to be known as the Bloodstained Knight, and people started fearing him.[301] He then ventures deeper into Khaenri'ah and dies battling monsters. In the depths of the world, he learns about the origin of the monsters that destroyed Khaenri'ah and the ultimate injustice that turned the people of Khaenri'ah into monsters, therefore joining the Abyss Order.[301]
  • An alchemist from Khaenri'ah, "Gold" Rhinedottir, creates one of her masterpieces, Durin.[302][303][288] She sends Durin and other creatures she created to the continent of Teyvat to "display [their] beauty."[304] Upon reaching Mondstadt, however, Durin lays waste to the city,[247][303][287][305][306] although it is suggested that Durin was not conscious of his actions after reaching Teyvat until Dvalin fatally wounded him in their battle.[307]
  • At that time there was no Lionfang Knight, as Arundolyn, then Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius and Lion of the South, gave up fighting after his friend Rostam died during the expedition to Khaenri'ah.[247][273][274][275][276][277] As a result, there was also no one strong enough to take on Durin.[Lore Discrepancy 8][Translation Note 5]
  • The people's cry for help are heard by the Anemo Archon, who calls upon Dvalin. The two engage Durin in battle and eventually defeat him, but Dvalin ingests Durin's poisonous blood, corrupted by the Abyss' power, in the process. To recuperate, Dvalin takes refuge in Decarabian's Tower in Old Mondstadt and falls into deep slumber.[247][303][305][306][308]
    • Durin's corpse falls over on Dragonspine and the power inside Durin's blood seeps into the land, reviving the Frostbearing Tree. Durin's blood appears to coagulate as Scarlet Quartz, due to the high concentrations of the mineral in Wyrmrest Valley, wherein Durin's heart still beats.[307]
  • Rosalyne-Kruzchka Lohefalter returns to Mondstadt and learns of Rostam's death. In her rage and despair, she uses the art of liquid flame she learned at Sumeru Akademiya to turn her body into that of living flame to avenge him, and becomes known the Crimson Witch of Flames.[309][Assumption 24]

Liyue[]

  • The Chasm and Dunyu Ruins are two known locations majorly impacted by the cataclysm.
    • An 'iron meteorite' impacted the Chasm and then monsters poured out of the Chasm and in response, Morax sent the Millelith to defend and evacuate the miners.[310]
      • An unnamed yaksha — who had once abandoned their duty to defend Liyue — returned to fight alongside the Millelith. The yaksha and Millelith who chose to lead the vanguard ultimately perished in battle.[310]
      • The monsters' threat was diverted by the combined efforts of the Yaksha — who revealed to be Bosacius, a mortal thaumaturge named Boyang, and the Millelith vanguard. They contrived a stratagem to trap and seal the beasts in the depths of The Chasm by using the Fantastic Compass, a catalyst which had the power to manipulate space. In the critical moments of the fight, Bosacius, Boyang and the Millelith vanguard ultimately sacrificed themselves by sealing themselves along with the beasts because the compass needed constant energy flow from a mortal and an adeptus to operate.[140]
      • There were very few survivors of the conflict in the Chasm. One such person was Rongzhao, Boyang's brother, but he went insane when returned to his family.[311] Another figure was a Millelith who lost all four limbs when rescuing the miners and fending off the monsters, but later he taught himself to become a famed doctor. He set up the memorial of the fellow Millelith comrades after he received a Vision.[312]
    • What occurred in Dunyu Ruins is unknown, but its people decided to abandon the city and move to Liyue Harbor; none of the refugees nor adepti have spoken about what happened there.[32]
      • The emerging abyssal influence was said to be the reason people abandoned Dunyu Ruins, and it became a ruin.[32]
      • Dunyu Ruins may be the byproduct of the main conflict in the Chasm, due to the fact that Bosacius commanded the Millelith force to hold the line at 60 miles outside The Chasm at all costs,[313] which can mean the nearest location, Dunyu Ruins, was also affected by the Chasm's waves of monsters as well.

Inazuma[]

  • Takamine the Mistsplitter and Mikoshi Chiyo are among those who campaigned alongside Ei (acting as the Raiden Shogun) against the dark forces that emerged during the cataclysm.[280][314]
    • Takamine is eventually overwhelmed by the monsters and disappears, despite his determination to return to Asase Hibiki's side.[315]
    • Chiyo is swallowed whole by a "beast of sin" with a tiger's body and a snake's head. Though she manages to tear the beast apart from the inside out, she is stained by its deep sin.[316]
  • ? years ago ― Chiyo turns her blade on Ei, only to be defeated and driven away. This betrayal tarnishes the Mikoshi Clan's reputation.[316]
  • ? years ago ― The Kitsune Saiguu is consumed by the dark forces and most of her memories are dissolved into filth.[152] The uncorrupted remains of her memories eventually manifest as Hanachirusato.[318]
  • During Khaenri'ah's destructionMakoto leaves Ei behind to defend Inazuma, and Makoto alone goes to Khaenri'ah, where she is slain.[155][156]
    • When Ei arrives to Khaenri'ah, she finds Makoto dying in her arm. She enters Makoto's mind and hears Makoto's last word. Ei decides to save Makoto's realm of consciousness and bring it back to Inazuma.[319]
  • When Ei returns to Inazuma, she finds that the Sacred Sakura miraculously appears at the top of Mt. Yougou, although according to everyone else, the Sacred Sakura has existed for ages. Ei eventually accepts that the tree is the result of the miracle surrounding Makoto's consciousness while also surmising its sudden growth was the work of Istaroth, one of the Four Shades.[319]
    • The Sacred Sakura's power help Ei to overcome the monsters and quell the disaster in Inazuma.[319]

Sumeru[]

Girdle of the Sands[]

  • Greater Lord Rukkhadevata travelled to Tunigi Hollow, where abyssal monsters were active. The former Hydro Archon Egeria's remains formed the Amrita Pool. In order to anchor Egeria into the mortal realm, Rukkhadevata grew the Harvisptokhm.
  • Simurgh finally awakes from its slumber. As destined, Simurgh drank the Amrita, purifying it from the abyss and sacrificed itself. Simurgh's form was shattered into countless Khvarena, the most sentient of which became the Pari.[323]

Fontaine[]

  • 500 years ago ― Egeria dies and Focalors takes over. Due to differences in ideology between Egeria and Focalors, the Oceanids refuse to obey Focalors and go on self-imposed exiles from Fontaine.[83][324]
    • The director of the Narzissenkreuz Institute, Lyris, who was herself an Oceanid, also disappears.
  • The great beast Elynas appears in Fontaine, spreading severe pollution to the land and sea. Basil Elton, vice-director of the Institute and former Admiral of the Fontaine Navy, comes out of retirement to fight against the threat. The Fontaine Armada set off for what would be their final battle; for 35 days it pursued Elynas, all the while attracting monsters from the Abyss. After finally catching up to the beast, the armada slammed into him, which destroyed the ship and killed all its crew while also mortally wounding Elynas.
    • Elynas eventually dies from his wounds, but maintains his consciousness.
  • A massive flood later called the "first diluvian period" (or "first flood period") submerges much of Fontaine, including the Narzissenkreuz Institute. The Institute, now flooded and without a director or vice-director, officially closes; Jakob and Rene are adopted by Karl Ingold, while Alain and Mary-Ann are adopted by Emanuel Guillotin.

Khaenri'ah[]

  • Dainsleif, known as the "Twilight Sword," is a royal guard of the Eclipse Dynasty. He is unable to protect the people of Khaenri'ah and is cursed with immortality, wandering aimlessly, and forced to watch the people he was meant to protect turn into monsters of the Abyss[217] and hilichurls.[325]
  • Khaenri'ahns who are of pure-blood descent are deemed as "the greater sinners" and punished with the curse of immortality, while all other citizens (those who are half-blood or hail from other nations entirely) are punished with the "curse of the wilderness."
  • The Traveler's Sibling witnesses Khaenri'ah's destruction. They return to where the Traveler still lay unconscious from their crash-landing on Teyvat, wake them up, and briefly takes them to Khaenri'ah before attempting to leave this world and move onto another one.[206][293]
  • The one-eyed king Irmin grew weak. The Alberich Clan stepped in as regents.[326]

Post-Cataclysm (500–100 years ago)[]

  • The amount and activity of hilichurls in Teyvat drastically increases,[327] suggesting some of them may have been Khaenri'ahn denizens who were transformed into hilichurls as punishment for the cataclysm.
  • <500 years ago — The Traveler's sibling wakes up first (again) after being trapped by the Unknown God.
    • The sibling spends some time traveling with Dainsleif, until they met Eide (real name Chlothar Alberich) in Sumeru, where he tried to cure his now-turned-to-hilichurl illegitimate son named Caribert.
    • After witnessing the miracle granted by a strange being (who called itself a "sinner"), Chlothar declares the founding of Abyss Order.
    • Not long after the founding of Abyss Order, the sibling parts ways with Dainsleif due to "finding the truth about this world."[296][328]
    • 100 years after Abyss Order was founded, the Traveler's Sibling assumes leadership of the Abyss Order.[329][217]
  • After the cataclysm, September 13Rhinedottir creates Albedo. He is born after the destruction of Khaenri'ah and has never seen the nation firsthand.[288]

Mondstadt[]

  • ? years ago[Assumption 25] ― Before the Crimson Witch of Flame could be fully devoured by her own flames, Pierro of the Fatui Harbingers, finds her and recruits her, giving her a Cryo Delusion to put out her flames.[330][331][332][333] The Crimson Witch of Flame becomes Signora, the 8th of the Fatui Harbingers.
  • 400 years ago ― An ancestor of Ella Musk and Dr. Edith writes "An Investigation into the Cultural Customs of the Wind Kingdom," which is excerpted in Breeze Amidst the Forest.[Translation Note 6]
  • >300 years agoOlaf, a denizen from Springvale, is born.
  • 300 years ago ― Olaf is frozen by a Cryo Regisvine while attempting to hunt a certain breed of boar, prized for its extraordinarily sumptuous taste, that is driven to extinction everywhere except for Dragonspine.[334] According to stories passed down during his time, Springvale was formed around a spring created by melted ice and snow from Dragonspine,[335] so it was established after Sal Vindagnyr froze over.
  • <200 years ago ― A Lochfolk named Callirhoe, also known as the Spring Fairy, moves to Springvale from Fontaine and blesses the waters.[83] According to Olaf, there were no stories about the Spring Fairy during his time, indicating she probably arrived after his accidental cryopreservation.[335]

Liyue[]

  • <500 years ago — In Liyue, the cataclysm created a martial arts renaissance as people sought ways to fight the monsters that continued appearing even after the immediate monster threat ended. Yun Hui of the Yun Family, a clan of blacksmiths, joined forces with master craftsman Han Wu to produce a series of weapon designs now known as the "prototypes."[336][337]

Inazuma[]

  • After the cataclysmEi officially takes up the position of Electro Archon after Makoto's death. As she was Makoto's kagemusha and adopted Makoto's titles as her own, most are unaware of the original Archon's death.[338][339]
    • Disillusioned with Celestia after witnessing the events at Khaenri'ah,[145][338] and in her grief on the losses she sustained over the course of the cataclysm, Ei decides to attain "eternity" by creating a puppet in her likeness. She first experiments with the technology and creates her first prototype, which takes the form of a young male vessel.[338] After seeing him shed tears after his creation, Ei decides he is too delicate to handle the Gnosis and instead seals his powers and leaves him to live his own life. Now armed with the knowledge of how to create puppets, she makes several other failed products before abandoning her quest to create a new vessel to house the Gnosis entirely.[340]
    • ~400 years ago ― Ei ultimately creates a puppet known simply as "the Shogun," intended to rule Inazuma based on the guidelines for "eternity" she had set. After giving the Shogun the relevant information about herself, Ei discards her physical form to enter the Plane of Euthymia, in which she will meditate for all eternity to stave off erosion.[341][342] Before entering the Plane of Euthymia, she gives her Gnosis to Yae Miko.[338]
    • The Yougou Three part ways, never to reunite:[281]
    • Mikoshi Michihiro, Chiyo's biological son, goes into seclusion in the forests near Konda Village out of shame over his mother's actions.[284]
    • The Great Tengu, enraged at her own inability to protect the Kitsune Saiguu, departs from the mortal realm and leaves behind her daughter, Teruyo.[280]
  • ? years ago ― Michihiro meets Teruyo when she finds him in the forest. She bestows him with the name "Iwakura," and he is thereafter known as "Iwakura Michihiro."[284]
    • 13 years later ― During their tenth duel, Michihiro finally catches Teruyo. Teruyo gives him the title "Tengu Victor" and decides to disappear from his life to focus on her responsibilities to her clan.[284]
  • ? years agoTakamine the Mistsplitter somehow emerges from the Abyss after disappearing from Teyvat for many years. He encounters Asase Hibiki, whom he still recognizes, but she immediately kills him.[283]
  • ? years ago ― The pirate Ako Domeki Zaemon of Seirai Island leads a rebellion against the Shogunate. Hibiki, who is reminded of Takamine when she sees him, decides to assist his cause and later uses the magic she learned from the Tengu to release the seals over Seirai Island. This releases the lingering hatred of the Thunderbird,[282] whose power — manifesting as a massive Electro storm at the center of the island — fragmented Seirai island and swept both the Shogunate and Ako Domeki's ships far from the island.
    • The Shogunate evacuates the people of Seirai Island and moves them to Narukami Island. Although the area immediately surrounding Asase Shrine is unaffected by the Thunderbird's hatred, the shrine is left abandoned save for Neko and the other cats residing there.
    • Iwakura Michihiro develops the Iwakura Art sword style and becomes the sword instructor for the Kujou Clan, receiving the title "Douin."[284][343][Assumption 26]
      • After Michihiro develops the Tengu Sweeper techniques, a series of Maguu Kenki puppets modeled after his fighting style and memories are created.[344]
  • ? years ago, after the creation of Maguu Kenki ― Ako Domeki defeats a Maguu Kenki doll and steals it for himself.[345] The ship carrying it, however, somehow gets lost and becomes shipwrecked on the Golden Apple Archipelago.[346] While the sailors eventually manage to escape the archipelago alongside the original islanders, the puppet is left behind.
  • ? years agoIoroi, having been tricked by the Kitsune Saiguu into staying away from the conflicts of the cataclysm, believes her to still be playing hide-and-seek. Unable to get her to show herself, however, he begins breaking the kitsune statues around Narukami Island and in one, finds an important-looking comb and steals it. The Shogunate learns of Ioroi's antics and dispatches Harunosuke, who had returned to Inazuma, to deal with Ioroi. Harunosuke seals Ioroi and many of the bake-danuki into stone statues.[153][347]
    • Sometime later, Harunosuke performs a Minor Cleansing with the help of Hanachirusato.[347]
  • ~400 years ago ― Ei's first prototype puppet awakens in Shakkei Pavilion, having no name for himself and only a feather as proof of his connection to the Raiden Shogun.[348] He is found by Mikoshi Nagamasa's yoriki, Katsuragi, and joins the group consisting of Armory Officer Niwa Hisahide, Inspector Mikoshi Nagamasa, Katsuragi, Kinjiro, Nozomu, and Vice Armory Officer Miyazaki in Tatarasuna.[340] Others in the group refer to him as the "Kabukimono" (Japanese: 傾奇者 meaning "wandering eccentric").
    • The Kabukimono is well received by the people of Tatarasuna, teaching him various skills, including forging swords. He becomes good friends with the people of Tatarasuna.
    • Nagamasa forges his crowning achievement, the Daitatara Nagamasa. In their joy, Nozomu makes a painting of the nagamaki while Katsuragi and Kabukimono perform a sword dance.[349]
    • A Fontaine mechanic, Escher, comes to Tatarasuna to collaborate. He implements some technologies to the Mikage Furnace, but this ended up releasing dangerous Tataragami and poisoning the people of Tatarasuna, and caused the Mikage Furnace to spew lethal doses of Tatarigami.[348][350]
    • Niwa sends people to Inazuma City for aid from the Shogunate, but none of them returns. Then Kabukimono is sent to Inazuma City for aid, but is rejected by the Shogunate because earlier in the same year, Ei's Shogun has activated and she has entered the Plane of Euthymia. Then Kabukimono asks for help to Yae Miko, who does send aid to Tatarasuna, but they were all shipwrecked. Kabukimono is unaware of this, and considered that the Shogunate had abandoned Tatarasuna.[351]
    • Meanwhile, Niwa confronts Escher, who then murders Niwa and reveals himself to be Il Dottore.[348] He then, as Escher, lies to the people of Tatarasuna, claiming that Niwa fled Tatarasuna. When Kabukimono returns empty-handed, Escher told him that he has been tasked to disable the furnace, giving him a device to help absorb the miasma. After Kabukimono successfully disables the furnace, Escher reveals that inside the device was "a heart that Niwa took from the chest of one of his men," but in truth, Dottore had taken Niwa's heart and placed it into the device. Kabukimono, horrified of this, grows disdain for Niwa and humans, and leaves Tatarasuna.
    • With Niwa's disappearance, Nagamasa, the second-in-command, becomes responsible of the events in Tatarasuna. Katsuragi is willing to face capital punishment in place of his master, and thus Nagamasa cleaves Katsuragi with the Daitatara Nagamasa before throwing the blade into the furnace.
    • Nozomu throws himself into the furnace to save the blade but later dies from the wounds he sustained; Kinjiro afterwards hides the remains of the blade as well as Nozumu's painting in the Arsenal.[349] Both Nagamasa himself and the Daitatara Nagamasa are thereon known as the Katsuragikiri Nagamasa (Katsuragi-Slashing Nagamasa).
    • After Kabukimono leaves Tatarasuna, he encountered a sickly child who is affected by the Tatarigami, his parents, likely workers of Tatarasuna, died of the same cause. Kabukimono and the child makes a promise to stay together forever.[352] But the child dies young due to the Tatarigami. Kabukimono enraged by this, burned the child's house down.[353] His hatred towards gods and humans grows further.
    • After the events above, during his wanderings in Inazuma, Kabukimono names himself Kunikuzushi (Japanese: 国崩 lit. "Country Destroyer").
      • As a result of Scaramouche removing all information about himself from the Irminsul in Inversion of Genesis, various aspects of the Tatarasuna incident and the fall of the Raiden Gokaden are vastly altered. All instances of Kabukimono or Kunikuzushi are entirely removed from history, and is replaced by entirely new characters. Dottore still caused the incident, but there is a "brave swordsmith" of the Hyakume Clan who rushed to the scene. He and Niwa both sacrificed themselves to disable the furnace, but neither of them survived.[354]
  • At some point, the Sacred Sakura takes on the shape of a kitsune head[155] as a result of the kitsune's care for the Sacred Sakura.[156]

Sumeru[]

  • <500 years ago, October 27 ― Following the cataclysm, Lesser Lord Kusanali is born and rises to the position of Dendro Archon to replace Greater Lord Rukkhadevata, who disappeared during the chaos.[46]
    • Following the events of Akasha Pulses, the Kalpa Flame Rises when the memories of Greater Lord Rukkhadevata were erased from Teyvat, Lesser Lord Kusanali is believed by all, including herself, to have always been the original Dendro Archon, and that she lost all of her memories and knowledge during the cataclysm, resulting in her imprisonment by the sages.
  • >400 years ago ― The Temple of Silence, an organization hailing from the desert that were responsible for knowledge from the era of King Deshret, departs the rainforest due to the corruption of the sages back to the desert, and settle into a large underground temple in Thamud Oasis.[355]
    • Upon their departure, the Akademiya, seeking to cover up their departure, creates a front organization that is responsible for the custody and disposal of information and documents not fit for public dissemination.
  • 200 years ago ― The most talented scholar of Sumeru Akademiya (before Lisa) graduates.[356]
  • >120 years ago, August 20Faruzan is born.
    • >100 years ago ― Faruzan is trapped within ruins related to King Deshret's civilization and was unable to escape until a century later.

Fontaine[]

  • ~499 years before the Archon Quest The Opera of Noirceur and Blancheur in Chapter IV: Act V - Masquerade of the Guilty[Assumption 27] ― Focalors avulses her divinity from her body and spirit, leaving behind Furina as her ''humanity''. Furina was then instructed by Focalors to publicly take the mantle of the Hydro Archon as a measure towards saving Fontaine from the prophecy.
    • Focalors then creates and proceeds to seclude herself in the Oratrice Mecanique d'Analyse Cardinale, acting as the Oratrice's verdict-giving system. Continual trials to be held in the Opera Epiclese would allow Indemnitium—a form of power derived from people's belief—to be accumulated in the Oratrice, of which Focalors would allot a small amount to power Fontaine. The majority of the remaining power was to be stored and utilized when the people of Fontaine would hold the trial of the Hydro Archon, as stated in the prophecy.
    • ~499 years later, the Oratrice sentences the Hydro Archon to death. Focalors bears the punishment, and has willingly given up her full authority as the Hydro Archon to the Hydro Dragon Sovereign, thus clears the people of Fontaine from their 'Original Sin', and making them - including Furina - fully human. As the result, the Hydro Archon's divine throne is destroyed - hence there will be no further Hydro Archons and the Oratrice is no longer functional - and the people of Fontaine can no longer be dissolved by the Primordial Sea water.
    • Due to the extreme exhaustion and stress she endured for the last 499 years, Furina leaves the Palais Mermonia and Opera Epiclese, where she settles down in an apartment.[357]
  • ? years ago
    • Karl, Rene, and Jakob explore the Khaenri'ahn ruins in Vourukasha Oasis and Madinat al-Nuhas, guided by the Order of Skeptics. During the trip, Jakob's weak constitution caused his health to deteriorate. Unbeknownst to Karl, Rene went behind his back and used Abyssal power to save Jakob. During this trip, they also deduce the "world-formula" from the records they found in the ruins, predicting a second flood period which would destroy Fontaine in the next few centuries.
    • Jakob and Rene return to Fontaine and soon discover Elynas' remains. They begin conducting secret experiments on the remains, namely by having Jakob absorb Elynas' blood. After some time, he became able to survive without eating by subsisting mainly on Elynas' flesh.
    • During their research into Elynas, Jakob and Rene bump into their childhood friends Alain and Mary-Ann. They are accepted into the Institute of Natural Philosophy following Alain's recommendation.
      • Rene begins recruiting researchers from the Institute of Natural Philosophy into a secret society he has named the Narzissenkreuz Ordo, created to help Fontaine survive the coming apocalypse that he and Jakob had predicted.
      • Jakob and Rene conduct a failed experiment to try to save the life of Carter Scherbius, Alain's sickly research assistant who the two had grown close to. However, the experiment goes horribly wrong and Carter is left in a semi-conscious state with the tissues of his body destroyed, leading Alain to cut off ties with them.
    • Some time after the split, the Guillotin siblings become members of the Marechaussee Phantom. Alain creates a mechanical assistant prototype and names it Seymour, tasking to always accompany and protect Mary-Ann.
    • Lyris returns to Fontaine, although she spends her days alone in the remains of the Narzissenkreuz Institute longing for the past. Rene and Jakob eventually find her and convince her to join the Ordo.
    • Rene decides to become "the first subject" of his radical experimentation and have his personality removed, using the Holy Blade of Narzissenkreuz alongside Lyris' purified essence to dissolve himself into a pure base personality for the gestalt. However, the ritual was a failure, and Rene is almost dissolved completely into the pure waters, only partially saved by Jakob through some unspecified method.
    • Jakob takes over as the de-facto leader of the Ordo. During this time, the construction of the Tower of Ipsissimus, the Ordo's base of operations, is finally completed.
      • Jakob eventually creates a Hydro Tulpa to store Rene's disembodied consciousness, using Lyris’ essence, Alain's pocketwatch and Carter's corrupted remains as the basis for his body. He names the new body "Narzissenkreuz," and the newly reborn Rene returns to leadership at the Ordo.
      • Narzissenkreuz then uses what remained of Carter's body to create Caterpillar, a hilichurl endowed with sentience. He also teaches Caterpillar human speech.
    • Emanuel Guillotin is assigned to investigate the Ordo. However, he, along with the Champion Duelist Marfisa, are ambushed and absorbed by Narzissenkreuz. From absorbing their memories, Narzissenkreuz learns that the Court of Fontaine is hot on the Ordo's trail.
  • ~400 years ago — Narzissenkreuz orders Jakob, Caterpillar, and Lyris to enter Elynas' remains, a ploy to draw the attention of the Marechaussee Hunters away from himself. Mary-Ann and Seymour are among those sent to Elynas to arrest the Ordo members.
    • During the battle, someone triggers an explosion which causes multiple human casualties and damage to Elynas' remains. Mary-Ann is fatally wounded and, for reasons unknown, has her personality absorbed by Lyris. Seymour is also heavily damaged. Jakob, however, survives the incident.
    • The Melusines are born from the wounds in Elynas' remains, caused by the shrapnel of destroyed clockwork meka flying through the air from the explosion and piercing through its body.
    • Narzissenkreuz falls into the Primordial Sea hidden beneath the Tower of Ipsissimus.
    • Caterpillar is found guilty of being an accessory to Narzissenkreuz's schemes and imprisoned in the Fortress of Meropide.
  • ~400 years agoNeuvillette is instated as the Iudex or Chief Justice of the Court of Fontaine.
    • The newly appointed Chief Justice of Fontaine brings the Melusines from Elynas into the rest of Fontaine for the first time. However, Fontanians were hesitant to accept Melusines into their society, believing them to be creatures of calamity due to an increase in "strange incidents," coupled with Neuvillette having just been appointed as the Iudex.
    • Carole is one of the first Melusines to live among humans in Fontaine. She worked alongside the then-leader of the Special Security and Surveillance Patrol, Vautrin, in order to foster goodwill and cooperation between the two species, in spite of the distrust towards the Melusines at the time.
    • 5 years later, Neuvillette awarded Carole and Vautrin with the Medal of Peace for their hard work in developing the relationship between Fontainians and the Melusines. However, not long after, a group of hardliners opposed to Neuvillette, including Thibert and Suavegothe, committed a murder and successfully lured Carole to the crime scene. They then framed her for the murder and incited a crowd of people into ordering her detention, resulting in chaos between the Gardes and the mob. As a result, Carole committed suicide to pacify the situation. Vautrin subsequently became enraged by her needless self-sacrifice and sought revenge on the hardliners, killing them to exact his own form of justice. Neuvillette was likewise upset at the turn of events.
      • After being exiled to the Fortress of Meropide, Vautrin became a model prisoner and established the Mutual Aid Society, which used a design similar to Vautrin's Medal of Peace as their badge for the next 400 years.
      • 400 years later, the Melusine Kiara would have a similar incident where someone threatened her, prompting Neuvillette to personally investigate to ensure an incident would not happen again. Kiara, who was kept inside the Palais Mermonia for her own safety, had a dream where she encountered Carole, who remarked that she was delighted to see the Melusines' dreams of living peacefully with humans come to fruition.
    • The Melusine Sigewinne, wanting to save a human friend, accepts a potion from her teacher to give her a more human-like appearance, with more natural skin and human hands. However, she ends up breaking an ancient Fontanian law regarding turning other species into human, resulting in her being sent to the Fortress of Meropide to serve out her sentence. She chooses to stay after her sentence is lifted to help the inmates with medical needs.
  • ? years ago — Alain leaves the Marechaussee Phantom and establishes the Fontaine Research Institute of Kinetic Energy Engineering.

In a fit of rage, Diluc resigns from the Knights of Favonius and abandons his Vision to investigate the truth behind Delusions for himself.[371][372]
    • Details on Crepus' death are left ambiguous in-universe: Diluc's character stories and one of Kaeya's character stories say the power of the Delusion backfired and killed Crepus,[373][374] but according to Kaeya's Vision story and his description of Diluc in the manga, Diluc personally killed Crepus to spare him the suffering caused when the Delusion backfired.[365][375] The manga's flashback is ambiguous and can favor either interpretation.[369][Note 18]

Grand Master Varka sought to promote her to Captain of the 8th Company immediately, but this notion was opposed by its Field Officer, Nymph. After a field test, Lisa decides to take the position of Librarian instead so she wouldn't have the responsibilities of captaincy.[382]

Shortly thereafter, Rhinedottir disappears, leaving Albedo only a note instructing him to uncover the "truth and meaning of this world," a recommendation letter to give to her friend Alice, and a part of the classical text Opus Magnum.[392] After finding Alice, Albedo is sent to the Knights of Favonius, who could supply him with a laboratory with which to conduct his research.

After word got out, counterfeits have flooded the black market and since then, Diluc and the Fatui have been in a purchasing war in their attempts to each secure the genuine artifact.[400]
  • Last Ludi Harpastum (~1 year to 6 months ago)[Lore Discrepancy 11] ― The events of the manga's main story occur.
    • The Fatui, led by Il Dottore, attempt to take of Ludi Harpastum to recruit more test subjects, but are thwarted in their initial attempt by Diluc and Kaeya's plan, and Dottore loses interest in the city. As some Fatui diplomats are about to leave on Dottore's orders, they run afoul of Collei, who needed a distraction to slip into the city. She uses the power of her Archon Residue to create a serpent of black fire that kills the diplomats, and the Knights of Favonius are obligated to investigate the situation to maintain relations with the Fatui.
    • Collei, seeking information about Barnabas to exact her revenge, runs into Amber, then Jean and Lisa. They give her permission to enter the library as they continue investigating the Black Fire Incident, and discover that the power that slew the diplomats is similar in nature to the Delusion (Evil Eye) used by Crepus several years earlier. Amber, who had encountered Dottore as he departed from Mondstadt, grows suspicious after noticing that both he and the Delusion smelled of Mist Pollen. She decides to try and track him down, and manages to find a Fatui device inside a hilichurl camp. However, she is then attacked by Krupp, a former Fatui researcher whom Dottore transformed into a Ruin Hunter. Together with Jean, who went to reinforce her, they take down Krupp for good and return to Mondstadt with evidence against the Fatui.
    • Realizing that the Fatui are hoping to instigate a swarm of monster attacks during the festival so they can take the credit for defeating them and saving Mondstadt, the Knights of Favonius decide to track down the Fatui devices and destroy them. In the meantime, Lisa contacts her teacher at Sumeru Akademiya to see if anyone would be able to seal Collei's Archon Residue. Amber takes advantage of the situation to let Collei experience Ludi Harpastum's festivities, but their fun is interrupted by Kaeya, who lures Collei away and attacks her to draw out her powers, confirming that she was behind the Black Fire Incident.[401] Upon realizing that Collei herself is innocent, and Amber's interruption allowing her to get away, Kaeya decides to enlist Diluc's help in creating an alibi for the girl.
    • Barnabas, who came to deal with the Black Fire Incident in Dottore's stead, confronts Kaeya about Collei, having witnessed Amber help her escape. Kaeya pretends to help, with Diluc posing as the perpetrator behind the incident to Barnabas' guards. However, Barnabas himself notices the archon power emitted when Cyno — who was sent from Sumeru Akademiya in response to Lisa's message — seals away Collei's Archon Residue. He confronts and attacks Collei and Amber after Cyno leaves to report to Lisa, but is eventually thwarted by Amber and Diluc's efforts.[402]
    • Kaeya "traps" Diluc after Barnabas' defeat, allowing the Fatui guards to arrest him and take him away, thereby absolving the Knights of Favonius from any responsibility. Shortly thereafter, Diluc breaks out, leaving behind his mask and Delusion for an uninterested Dottore. The Harbinger also grows irritated by Barnabas' failure and has his guards get rid of him.[403]
      • In the manga, Kaeya returns Diluc's Vision after he breaks out of prison, hiding it inside the Strange Vase that can be seen inside the Dawn Winery in-game.[Lore Discrepancy 12]

However, she is still alive thanks to the adeptal energy bestowed upon her and, with the seal having worn off over hundreds of years, manages to escape in the middle of the night. She stumbles upon Baizhu, who decides to employ her at Bubu Pharmacy due to her unique nature.[410]
  • >2 years ago[411]The Chasm is sealed off due to numerous reasons: mysterious accidents,[412] miners dug up a strange, harmful "Wish Granter",[413][414] and strange earthquakes.[415] The decision was made despite the Chasm's wealth and quite surprisingly.[413]
    • The Liyue Qixing set up a seal called the Seven-Star Array to seal off the underground mine. The vital points (and weak points) of the seal lied on the set of Bedrock Keys around the seal.[415]
    • For over 2 years, the phenomenon call the Cage-Shaped Geo Formation began to erect from the bedrock of the Chasm. They have been absorbing Geo elemental energy from the surroundings, slowly eroding the structure of the Bedrock Keys.[415]
    • The Chasm actually was never closed off entirely, professional miners were still working here in case of emergencies.[416] Treasure Hoarders also infiltrated the mine and did illegal mining.[417]

Inazuma[]

  • ~100 years ago ― To enact his revenge against the "bladesmith," Kunikuzushi masterminds the fall of the Raiden Gokaden, eradicating three of the five schools before losing interest in and abandoning his project.[340][423] His revenge involved instigating a famous swordsmith, Akame Kanenaga, to betray Inazuma;[424][425] because swordsmithing and the Raiden Gokaden are viewed as a cultural institution, they were under the jurisdiction of the Yashiro Commission. As a result, their inability to prevent the situation dealt a large blow to the Kamisato Clan.[426]
    • Yae Miko, predicting that the Kamisato Clan would play a major role in Inazuma's future events, intervened in the Kamisato Clan's judgement before the Raiden Shogun and spared them from punishment.[423]

    • As a result of Scaramouche removing all information about himself from the Irminsul in Inversion of Genesis, various aspects of the Tatarasuna incident and the fall of the Raiden Gokaden are vastly altered. All instances of Kabukimono or Kunikuzushi are entirely removed from history, and is replaced by entirely new characters. From Kunikuzushi being the one who masterminds the fall of the Raiden Gokaden, instead, a descendant of the "brave swordsmith" of the Hyakume clan is the one who masterminds it. When the descendant got to the Kamisato and Kaedehara clans, they retaliated, and killed the descendant.[354]

    • The Sangonomiya Resistance is formed to resist the Vision Hunt Decree. Since then, the Shogunate Army and the Sangonomiya Resistance have been at war, which has halted to a stalemate.
    • An individual protested against the Vision Hunt Decree by declaring a duel before the throne. However, he lost to Kujou Sara and was promptly executed by the Shogun, but not before his Vision was seized by Kaedehara Kazuha who flees Inazuma after being branded a criminal.[437]
    • The wards which suppressed Orobashi were destroyed by Orobashi fanatics with the help of Nathan, a Fatui agent who infiltrated the Watatsumi Army.[438] This led to the Tatarigami spreading again.[439]
    • During the heat of the civil war, the Mikage Furnace began to malfunction, forcing Xavier to erect a safety dome to contain the Tatarigami. Production at Tatarasuna comes to a halt, and the evacuation order for the armory was issued.[350]

The Beginning[]

Notes[]

  1. While snow and strife could be the interpretation and the result of the war between Decarabian and Boreas in the Archon War, the existence of the Divine Nail meant that snow and strife were the results of the war between the Heavenly Principles and the Second Who Came.
  2. Book: History of Kings and Clans: Prologue
    Starts recording Mondstadt's history from the Age of Kings, which is the war between Boreas and Decarabian; whether the Northland Historical Society has any record of history before that is unknown.
  3. Ruins containing the ornamentation style found primarily in Stormterror's Lair can be seen across Brightcrown Mountains and Windwail Highland. It is unique from other ruins' ornamentation styles, making it easy to connect them.
  4. Stone Tablet Compilations names Morax as the co-ruler of Guili Plains alongside Guizhong, which is confirmed by the table at Mt. Aocang and the description for Memory of Dust. It also briefly mentions the Guizhong Ballista, which was not within Soraya's scope of interest during Treasure Lost, Treasure Found.
  5. Toki Alley Tales is a relatively unreliable source that has little information that can be cross-checked. As a result, while its account of Inazuma's history has been recorded, its veracity is highly questionable.
  6. The Biography of Gunnhildr gives the earliest known date for Boreas and Decarabian's war at 3000 years ago. However, this only records the start of the Gunnhildr Clan's story, so it may have begun well beforehand, while Venti's character stories give a more precise date for the fall of Old Mondstadt at 2600 years ago.
  7. While Rex Incognito mentions that people once used jade plaques as currency, the unnamed nobleman — a disguised Morax — reveals at the end of the book series that he made up the story about the jade plaques, likely with the intent of seeing whether it would be taken as fact generations later.
  8. In Radiant Sakura, Makoto confirms that her ideal is also eternity, that "Eternity extends time into infinity, dreams illuminate each moment within." Ei comments that Makoto's understanding of eternity is much more profound than her, leading to her "no longer pursuing an eternity defined by stasis." In Wishes in Chapter II: Act III - Omnipresence Over Mortals, Yae Miko points out that Makoto "in each moment cherished the beauty of what was before her."
  9. While Baal is Makoto's Goetic name and Ei's is Beelzebul, Zhongli refers to Ei as "Baal" in The Fond Farewell and Venti and Zhongli's Voice-Overs about Ei are both titled "About Baal." Given that they are aware of the distinction between Makoto and Ei, it is presumed that they continue to use Makoto's title for Ei out of respect for the twins' decision.
  10. The Chinese description for The Coordinates of Sun and Rain details: 依照传说,司草木的女神在沙漠的一角唤出能召来甘霖的精灵,名之曰「法留纳」亦即「水天」。 "According to legend, the goddess who controlled plants summoned, in a part of the desert, a spirit of sweet rains, whose name was Varuna, or "Water-Sky.""
  11. The Khaenri'ah diplomats appeared in Enkanomiya shortly before the move to Watatsumi Island was completed.
  12. It is unclear whether the first Field Tiller came to Mondstadt before or after the cataclysm. Barbara's story only vaguely frames the story between Decarabian's death and before the present day, and Boreas' account of his fight against the Field Tiller places it after he moved to Wolvendom — except there is no timeframe for that either. Note that Guizhong, who lived far before Decarabian fell, had access to Ruin Guards and Ruin Hunters, so it is possible that the first Field Tiller wandered into Mondstadt before the cataclysm and not after it, like most other Ruin Guards.
  13. The Chinese version of the Manga Prologue calls Murata the God of War and the God of Pyro. Venti, while talking about Murata to Vennessa, says that "in our time," the tribes would hold martial arts tournaments in which all participants would promise to dedicate their victories to Murata.
  14. This is true for all four voice acted languages.
  15. The first speaker in Pro-Exit Persuasion (the grandchild of "Grandpa") appears to have the same voice as the islander speaker in Conch Retrospection V: Grand Line in all four voice acted languages.
  16. Since the Loom of Fate operation is still in its early stages in Present Day, the Defiled Statue was likely stolen somewhat recently. However, it was stolen long enough ago that Barbara says that it's an "old story" and happened "a long time ago."
  17. It is currently unknown exactly when Kaeya told his story that happened "a decade ago" to the Grand Master.
  18. In the flashback, the pacing suggests that the battle with Ursa ends, Crepus collapses, Kaeya and other knights arrive at the scene, and Crepus dies in Diluc's arm's all in very short order, with no suggested timelapses. However, when Crepus dies in Diluc's arms, there is blood on Diluc's face that was not there when Crepus collapsed after the battle ended.
  19. Crepus' death occurs 3 years before the manga's events while Diluc's character stories place it 4 years before the game's story, making the manga set roughly a year before the game. However, according to Diluc's stories, he returned to Mondstadt after Varka left on his expedition, making his return occur sometime within 6 months before the game's story. The message on the Cat's Tail Message Board about Collei says she was seen at the "last Ludi Harpastum" before the game's story, with no indication of how long ago it occurred.

Lore Discrepancies[]

  1. The narrative in The Lay of Al-Ahmar suggests that he once lived in Celestia. However, this is not corroborated by the narrative of The Shepherd and the Magic Bottle (which states that he learned the story of the Moon Sisters from the Jinn) or the description of Staff of the Scarlet Sands (which is narrated from Deshret's point of view and says that "she" — either Nabu Malikata or Greater Lord Rukkhadevata — told him the story instead).
  2. In Amos' Bow's description and the The Boy and the Whirlwind trailer, both from the Closed Beta Test era, there were four leaders of the rebellion: the Nameless Bard, the elf/wind spirit, Amos, and the knight. Based on process of elimination, the red-haired man in the trailer was the knight. Much later, in Version 1.6, Freedom-Sworn named the Red-Haired Warrior as a fifth leader and thus left the identity of the knight a mystery. Based on process of elimination again, the knight would probably be Gunnhildr, whose involvement in the rebellion was otherwise only attested to in Biography of Gunnhildr.
  3. According to Yae Miko in Wishes, Makoto and Ei "won the Archon War together," whereas Treasured Tales indicates that Ei technically "lost" the Archon War by sacrificing her body so Makoto could ascend. Based on current prevailing in-universe sentiment that the Archon War had a "last man standing" rule, and lore about Boreas choosing death so he would not become the Anemo Archon, the wiki assumes Treasured Tales' account is correct.
  4. Because The Shepherd and the Magic Bottle is a story of unknown and unverifiable origin and excludes any mention of Nabu Malikata, it is highly likely that some of its contents are inaccurate. The wiki currently assumes that Oasis Garden's Mourning's description is more accurate in its depiction of Ay-Khanoum's history.
  5. The Lay of Al-Ahmar suggests that King Deshret heeds the three retainers, builds a great maze for hundreds years, and the kingdom collapses after one night. Since the description of the book states that the information is questionable, the information from the Archon Quest takes advantage.
  6. According to The Tale of Shiruyeh and Shirin, Gurabad was part of a vassal states era which drew to an end after King Deshret and the Sage-King of the Greenwood (presumably Greater Lord Rukkhadevata) regathered their subjects and recreated their oasis paradise. There is currently insufficient information to confirm or deny its account of the timeline, although there has been no indication of a second Deshret-Rukkhadevata civilization.
  7. The manga suggests that Vennessa became Falcon of the West after her ascension, but Venti's Character Tale depicts her as a mortal after the establishment of the Four Winds, which indicates that she was both while she was alive.
  8. Breeze Amidst the Forest appears to place Rostam's death (indicated by "The Lionfang Knight was without a suitable heir") before Barbatos and Dvalin began to fight Durin. However, Elegy for the End says that Rostam fought at the same time as Barbatos, Dvalin, and Durin and that Rostam died at around the same time Durin did.
  9. Mask of the Kijin reveals that the preceding materials in its series regarding Torachiyo were all distortions of Chiyo's story. Torachiyo did not actually exist.
  10. Amber's Character Story 3 and Vision Story conflict on whether she joined the Outriders before or after her grandfather's disappearance.
    One possible resolution of this discrepancy is that trainee Outriders are not considered Outriders proper until they're no longer trainees, as Amber's Vision Story specifies that she officially became an Outrider after her grandfather's death while her Character Story 3 only says that she was admitted to the Outriders before her grandfather's death without specifying if being admitted to the Outriders means officially becoming an Outrider or if it can also mean being admitted as a trainee.
  11. Crepus' death occurs 3 years before the manga's events while Diluc's character stories place it 4 years before the game's story, making the manga set roughly a year before the game. However, according to Diluc's stories, he returned to Mondstadt after Varka left on his expedition, making his return occur sometime within 6 months before the game's story. The message on the Cat's Tail Message Board about Collei says she was seen at the "last Ludi Harpastum" before the game's story, with no indication of how long ago it occurred.
  12. The Strange Vase exists in-game and is also referred to in A Child's Secret. However, the events of the manga happen in at least three days, which means that Diluc — who hosted a large party at the beginning of the manga with esteemed guests such as Seamus Pegg — had already been back in Mondstadt for at least three days by the time he received his Vision in the vase, conflicting with his Vision story, which says that he took up his Vision the same day he returned to Mondstadt.

Translation Notes[]

  1. The English localization of Moonlit Bamboo Forest (III) states that disaster would befall the world if the three sisters failed to switch places in time. This is a major misinterpretation of the original Chinese text, which says that they continued switching places up until the great disaster descended. (See Moonlit Bamboo Forest § Notes for details.)
  2. In the original Chinese text for A Drunkard's Tale (III), the sentence "This wasteland is said to be a land beyond the dominion of the deities, inhabited only by [...] fallen gods, where the former palaces of the Seelie now stand empty" refers to The Seven when it uses "deities" (Chinese: "gods,") juxtaposed against the term "fallen gods" (Chinese: 魔神 "demon god,") a term which, at the time the book was released in-game, only referred to gods who lived before the end of the Archon War. It can thus be assumed that the Seelie civilization — and, by extension, primordial human civilization — spanned the entire world and not just the surface-level continent of Teyvat that The Seven now rule over.
  3. The original Chinese version of "This land was once a realm of sub-zero blizzards and ice storms filled with razor-sharp ice shards, all at the command of Boreas" uses a more passive tone which suggests that Boreas did not actively will it, but rather caused it simply by existing.
    Chinese text: 这片大地上曾经北风呼啸,呼气凝霜。 "Long ago did the North Wind howl on this land, his breath congealing into frost."
  4. The English localization says "a dozen days," whereas the original Chinese text says 十多天 "over 10 days."
  5. In Breeze Amidst the Forest, the English translation treats the paragraph beginning with "It was an especially difficult time for Mondstadt." as a cause and the paragraph beginning with "The prayers of Mondstadt's people awoke the Anemo Archon" as the effect. However, the original Chinese text treats them more like two descriptions of events that happened in the same timeframe instead of cause and effect.
  6. The original Chinese text attributes "An Investigation into the Cultural Customs of the Wind Kingdom" to an unspecified Musk Family member; Jacob Musk is not specified like he is in English.

Editors' Assumptions[]

  1. In Before Sun and Moon, the author claims during "The First Year of Darkness" that the Heavenly Principles and its "three other" shining shades did not hear their lamentation, leaving one shade unaccounted for. In "The Third Year of Darkness," the author calls Istaroth the "only one who had not forsaken us," making her the shade that (they believe) heard them.
  2. It is presumed that this civilization was likely part of the same unified civilization as Enkanomiya due to the identical architecture.
  3. Celestia is depicted in one of the murals below the island, and the object fits the description of the nail.
  4. As Neuvillette has memories of the "great war of vengeance", this makes it the earliest point in time when the original Dragon of Water could have died. As Egeria's existence prevents the rebirth of a new Hydro Dragon, there is little possibility for an incarnation to have been born between the original one and Neuvilette's present form.
  5. Given that Sal Vindagnyr, a Divine Envoy era civilization, fell after its ancient white tree (presumably similar to, or a branch of, Irminsul) was destroyed by the Skyfrost Nail, it can be assumed that Irminsul also existed during that era. However, this does not indicate when exactly Rukkhadevata came into existence.
  6. According to Fragment of Decarabian's Epic, Boreas declared war on Decarabian but was unable to break through Decarabian's storm wall. However, there is currently no in-game reference to Decarabian's response towards Boreas. It can be assumed that Decarabian either had no interest in fighting Boreas or was equally incapable of overcoming the other god. Boreas eventually chose to die of his own volition while Decarabian was slain by humans and the wind spirit, leaving their conflict a draw.
  7. The wind spirit who saved Gunnhildr's Clan is not explicitly stated to be Barbatos. At the same time, there is no evidence that suggests they worshipped another wind spirit, and there is too little information about the God of Time to draw any conclusions about them.
  8. Assuming Barbatos terraformed Mondstadt shortly after his ascension, Leonard's attempt to scale Pilos Peak must have come before 2600 years ago, even though Mona rounds his time period down to 2000 years ago. He also mentions Venerare, the leader of the Lawrence Clan at the start of Barbatos' Mondstadt, which means he had to have lived around the end of Decarabian's Mondstadt.
  9. It is unknown when Boreas died. The land outside of Decarabian's Mondstadt was a snowy wasteland, which would indicate that Boreas had not yet let his powers flow into the land to nourish it, but Barbatos became Anemo Archon shortly after Decarabian fell, which suggests that Boreas had already chosen to remove himself from the Archon War via death by the time Barbatos rose.
  10. It is unclear whether Chi was defeated at this time or if the seals were established years after its defeat, but the seal at the highest point of Mt. Qingce has a statue facing a "wind-swept ruin," which is Decarabian's capital city. As a result, the seals must have been established after Barbatos' rise as Anemo Archon 2600 years ago.
  11. Zhongli's fifth Character Story implies that he was already Geo Archon by the time the final divine seat was claimed and the Archon War era drew to a close.
  12. 12.0 12.1 It is unclear when exactly Orobashi fled to the Dark Sea and later created Watatsumi Island, or when it was defeated. Orobashi peacefully lived under Baal's rule for a while, which means it was alive after Makoto ascended to Electro Archon, but it was stated to have died during the Archon War. This indicates that both Makoto's rise to Electro Archon and Orobashi's death occurred before the official end of the Archon War 2000 years ago.
  13. Ei, Chiyo, the Kitsune Saiguu, and Sasayuri are depicted together in Character Teaser - "Raiden Shogun: Nightmare," which indicates they were all alive before the war against Orobashi, during which Sasayuri lost his life.
  14. Kanna Kapatcir tells Ruu that she heard "the melodies sung by the blue flying dragon of the far north." This dragon is currently believed to be Dvalin, who descended onto Mondstadt after Barbatos became Anemo Archon. Assuming that is correct, this means Ruu lived sometime after Barbatos ascended 2,600 years ago.
  15. Based on the sequence in Story Teaser: Promise of a People's Dream, Kanna Kapatcir was killed after Orobashi.
  16. Based on the frequency of Barbatos's descent and the Hexenzirkel's possible time frame, the event has been tentatively put here without clear evidence. One of Alice's titles, "Defender of Old Mondstadt," might have been coined during this event.
  17. Ingbert is never specified to be an allogene. However, Ragged Records refers to someone as one of "the chosen"; this must be Ingbert, based on Ancient Investigation Journal: Part III. So far, those who are referred to as "chosen" are largely, if not exclusively, Vision bearers.
  18. No dates have been specified for the Wanderer's Troupe's active period, but it disbanded a few years before Vennessa's rebellion at most. Ragnvindr and Kreuzleid were both around for the fall of the Troupe and would later assist Vennessa's rebellion.
  19. It is unclear when Vennessa's rebellion occurred relative to the failed Dragonspine expedition, but it likely came afterwards or coincided with it at earliest. Vennessa offends Barca on the last day of Ludi Harpastum, after which she was purchased by Lord Lawrence and sentenced to do battle in the arena to win her freedom, but we don't know how long those battles took.
  20. 20.0 20.1 In New Chronicles of the Six Kitsune: Prologue, the chief editor (Yae) tells the author "'I wasn't even born yet when she left,'" to which the author writes, "And I was still in my youth back then." Based on New Chronicles of the Six Kitsune (V), "she" refers the Kitsune Saiguu and the place she left was the Hakushin Lands.
  21. The event mentioned in the description of the Talking Stick predated the creation of Mare Jivari. Wanderer's Troupe, which lasted until around Vennessa's rebellion 1000 years ago, are said to had once been in Mare Jivari, ruling out the aforementioned event as the cataclysm.
  22. In both Character Teaser - "Raiden Shogun: Nightmare" and Story Teaser: Promise of a People's Dream, which depict other events in chronological order, the Kitsune Saiguu's death during the Abyss' attack is depicted before Makoto's death in what appears to be Khaenri'ah. From this, it can be assumed that the Abyss attacked Teyvat before The Seven were involved in Khaenri'ah. However, this does not exclude the possibility that the gods in Celestia attacked Khaenri'ah first.
  23. For the Traveler's sibling to have come across the midst of the cataclysm, they would have needed to travel the world at least for a period of time beforehand. However, because they only have started their journey around Teyvat with Dainsleif after the cataclysm, this means that they must have either only briefly explored the land beforehand, or went on their own journey, which of the latter is not documented anywhere inside of the storyline.
  24. As Rosalyne set out to burn demons and monsters, the cataclysm may have still been ongoing when she became the Crimson Witch of Flame.
  25. The lands that the Crimson Witch of Flame burned are unspecified, but as Rosalyne lived in Mondstadt and learned of Rostam's death upon her return to Mondstadt, it is assumed that Pierro found the Crimson Witch of Flame in Mondstadt. The exact time he found her is also unknown, but since the Tsaritsa sent Pierro to recruit for the Fatui in response to the cataclysm and the Crimson Witch of Flame was being burned alive by the very flames she turned herself into, Pierro must have found the Crimson Witch of Flame shortly after the cataclysm.
  26. Because Hiiragi Hiroshi claims Michihiro could rival Ako Domeki with his swordsmanship skills, this implies that Ako Domeki had already grown powerful and influential by the time Michihiro became the Kujou sword instructor.
  27. Assuming that each "scene" is a day, these events happened 182,376 days, or over 499 years and 3 months, before The Opera of Noirceur and Blancheur. However, the in-universe date of that quest is not known, and Bennett's birthday and his mails imply that the civil calendar used by Teyvat is either the Julian calendar or the Gregorian calendar without making it clear which one is being used. As a result, it is unclear how many days beyond 499 years and 3 months passed.
  28. In the manga, Amber mentions that she overheard the argument between Eroch and Diluc while hiding in a cupboard to prank her grandfather, indicating that he hadn't resigned at the time of Crepus' death.
  29. It is unclear when exactly Albedo joined the Knights of Favonius, but between Albedo's second character story and Klee's first character story, it appears they came to Mondstadt around the same time.
  30. In the manga, Amber mentions that she overheard the argument between Eroch and Diluc while hiding in a cupboard to prank her grandfather, indicating that he hadn't resigned at the time of Crepus' death.
  31. Kaveh’s second Character Story explains that he reached schooling age and enrolled into the Akademiya around the time his father died. While his father is confirmed to have died 20 years ago in the event story A Parade of Providence, the vague wording could imply that Kaveh reached schooling age several months to a year after his fathers death.
  32. Il Dottore attended Sumeru Akademiya at some point in the past, but the exact timeframe cannot be determined and the existence of his Segments leaves his actual age a mystery. Until more information is given, the wiki assumes he attended Sumeru Akademiya within the past 100 years.
  33. It is unclear when the two met. Alhaitham claims in his "About Tighnari" voice-over that Tighnari was part of the Forest Ranger groups that cleared away the initial Withering incident, which would suggest that they met then, but Tighnari implies in his own "About Kaveh" voice-over that he knew Kaveh before the incident, as Kaveh asked him for advice on ornamental flora to use for the project during its planning stage.
  34. The Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual World Quest series reveals that Kameras existed 500 years ago, and the Memento Lens was built for such a device. However, that technology was lost over time. It is unclear whether Fontaine's Kamera was built using restored ancient technology or if it was created independently.
