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 Nation Histories and click on the respective nation's page.

Please note: This page is under reconstruction. Some information is housed on nations' History pages and must be edited there. Some information that pertains to more than one nation may be duplicated.

References are provided as much as possible. There are also notes that expand on the deduction and reasoning used to draw certain conclusions, which can be read by either 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 manga information, 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 involving information found in-game and in the manga, the in-game information always takes priority.
  • Translation Note: Used when the original Chinese text and its official English translation 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: Because of lack of information, contradictory information, information that is expanded on in different lore pieces, deliberately inaccurate in-game material, and other such obfuscation, editors will sometimes make assumptions to determine the order of certain events or puzzle together pieces of disjointed lore. 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.

Celestia and the First Civilization

All events take place an unknown time in the past, but allegedly predate Morax's birth over 6000 years ago.

Three Moons, the Seelie, and the Ancient Disaster

  • ? years ago - In ancient times, there were three moons, who were sisters named Aria, Sonnet, and Canon. These three sisters dwelled in the Lunar Palace, changing places three times a month to ride around the heavens in a silver carriage. Failure to switch places would result in disaster.[1][2] This disaster eventually befell during the incident that also caused the downfall of the Seelies.[3]
    • "[...] there were three bright moons in the night sky named Aria, Sonnet and Canon, sisters who were parted by death in a great catastrophe."[2]
    • These three moons were sisters, their years numbering more than that of the Geo Archon and their year of birth dating before the very bedrock upon which Liyue Harbor now rests. The moons were daughters of prose and song, sovereign over the night sky. They navigated the heavens above in their silver carriage, alternating with one another thrice a month. If the reign was not promptly passed from one sister to the next, a terrible disaster would occur that very day.[1]
  • The Seelies were once a race with beautiful, humanoid forms and great wisdom. They dwelled in Teyvat and in the Dark Sea beyond, and were tasked with guiding humanity. They built a large and prosperous civilization and erected large palaces. However, their civilization came to an abrupt end after one of the Seelies' ancestors fell in love with a certain traveler from afar. 30 days after they pledged their union in the Lunar Palace, disaster befell the world (presumably a failed changing of the moons) 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.[3][4]
    • This wasteland is said to be a land beyond the dominion of the deities, inhabited only by the grotesque ghostly remains of fallen gods, where the former palaces of the Seelie now stand empty.[4]
  • Following the calamity, the heartbroken seelies 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.[3]
  • Not all Seelies 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 Andrius) would meet one of its remnants who had not yet withered away, and befriended her. It is possible she is the "ancient god" from whom Andrius gained his god-like power.[5]
    • "The last singers, the first Seelie, they played their final tune in the halls of angels."The tiny Seelie playing in the forest were also drawn to the young maiden's tune, and flocked to her to pay their respects.[...] "A song of the Seelie,"Replied the pale young maiden in a soft voice."Long, long ago, we wrote this song for the human savages. Yet now, we sing it to mourn our own fate."[4]
  • The three moon sisters, too, would befall disasters that eventually caused them to turn on each other. In the ensuing battles, all three were slain and two crumbled away, leaving only one corpse that is now the solitary moon.[1]
    • With time, disasters overturned the sovereign carriage and laid ruin to the halls of the stars. The three sisters of the night turned against one another, leading to their eternal parting by death. Only one of their pale corpses now remains, ever shedding its cold light...[1]
    • The wolves in Teyvat have a connection to the moon sisters and mourn their fate. The wolf packs are children of the moons, they remember the calamities and the tragedies that ensued. Hence, they lament the fate of their mother with each new moon... It is also why those who live among the wolves call the morning stars, the surviving love of the moon, the grievous stars.[1]

The Rise of Humanity

Note: Too little is known about the timeframe of the Prayers artifact sets to tell when they occurred relative to the Seelie and the Three Moons, or to other known early civilizations in Teyvat. It is assumed that the events in the Prayers artifacts occurred after the fall of the Seelie, since they refer specifically to humanity, who were "savages" during the Seelie's era.[4]

  • ? years ago - By the time human civilization begins to emerge, the earth was 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.
    • 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.[6][7][8][9]In those days, life was weak, and the earth was blanketed in unending ice.[6]The eternal ice had just begun to thaw, and the first fires were still new.[7][...] the ancient flames were extinguished amidst the first falling rains.[8][...] the waters ran dry as thunder first pierced the skies.[9]
  • The nature of the world Celestia created was cyclical; humanity would thrive and prosper under Celestia's blessings before being coming to an end, and then the earth would be renewed and the cycle begins once again.[6] However, humanity was not meant to know this, so when people questioned how long their prosperity would last, the heavenly envoys remained silent.[7][8]
    • To receive answers from Celestia, the people appointed a chief priest who, wearing a crown made of Irminsul branches, would head to the depths of the world to attain enlightenment.[7][8]
    • Every retiring chief priest offers their Irminsul tiara to the earth in the underground chamber. Over time, a mountain of white-branched crowns amassed underneath a withered tree.[6]
  • ? years ago - One civilization blessed with wisdom grew prideful and ambitious. They challenged the gods' authority and sought to enter the gardens of heavens. This angered the heavenly envoys, and the chief priest donned a crown of Irminsul branches and went to the depths of the world to try and appease them.[8]
  • ? years ago - 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.[10]

Before the Archon War

Old Mondstadt

Note: Very little information exists about the region of Mondstadt before the fall of Decarabian's Mondstadt during the Archon War.[11] 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.[12]
    • 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.[13]
  • ? years ago - At some point, Andrius, known as the King of the North Wind (or some variation thereof), gains his powers from an ancient god[14] and becomes a god himself.[15]
  • ? years ago - Decarabian establishes his capital city, Mondstadt,[16] in the area now known as Stormterror's Lair.[17] 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.[18]
    • 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.[19]
    • 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,[20][21] although whether it was intentional or not is somewhat ambiguous.[Translation Note 1] To protect his city from the blizzards, Decarabian creates a storm wall around it.[22]
    • Note: It is currently unknown when or why Andrius' blizzards began. While it is possible that the "land of snow and strife," which the settlers of Vindagnyr came from, is Mondstadt, there is currently too little information to draw any conclusions. For example, the snow and strife may be related to the god that Andrius received his powers from.

Sal Vindagnyr (Dragonspine)

  • ? years ago - A group of people seeking refuge from a land of snow and strife (likely Old Mondstadt) 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.[23][24][25]
  • ? years ago - 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.[23]
  • ? years ago - 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.[26]
  • ? years ago - For some unknown amount of time, Celestia is moored above the mountain of Vindagnyr.[27]
  • ? years ago - The Skyfrost Nail, a piece of Celestia, descends from the skies, shrouding the city with clouds and snowstorms.[28] 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.[24][29]
  • ? years ago - 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.[23][24][26][30][31][32]
  • ? years ago - 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.[24]

Guili Assembly (Liyue)

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 1] the wiki will assume it has the correct version.

  • >6000 years ago - Morax, a god with dominion over Geo, is born.[33]
  • ? years ago - Morax descends on the region of Liyue, where he raises Mt. Tianheng, quells the seas, and lowers the tides.[34] To pacify the seas, he defeats many sea monsters including one beast known as Baqiu.[35] Jueyun Karst was created in such a way at an unknown point in time, with the water being drawn into an underground reservoir.[36]
  • ? 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 the second character of Morax's (using his name at the time, which is unknown).[37] This civilization spanned the area between Mt. Tianheng and Stone Gate. It was extremely prosperous, flourishing under the trades of agriculture and mining,[34] and became a trading hub.[36]
    • 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."[37]
    • Guizhong and Cloud Retainer, among other adepti, create the Guizhong Ballistas to defend the Guili Assembly from external threats.[34][38]

Lisha Civilizations (Liyue)

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.

  • ~6000 years ago - A star falls to the west of 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.[39]
    • "In a past beyond memory, when even Rex Lapis would still have been young, a star fell from the sky into the barren plains west of Liyue. These plains were transformed into a huge and deep chasm in the wake of that star's descent, and jade would emerge from within, beautiful and limitless, and it would become the foundation for a thousand years of industrial mining in Liyue thereafter."
      [...] "Over the tumult and storms of the next few thousand years, the redoubts of the Dunyu Valley stood tall and maintained prosperous relations with Liyue Harbor up till 500 years ago.
      But with the coming of the black calamity and the rise of the Abyss, the residents of Dunyu sealed the ancient city and departed for other lands."
  • ? 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.[40]
    • 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.[40]
    • 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."[40]
  • ? 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.[41]
    • "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.


Tanuki-Kitsune War

  • ? years ago - The Tanuki are native to the islands of Inazuma. The Kitsune arrive overseas from mainland Teyvat and attempt to colonize the islands. The Tanuki and Kitsune engage in a war for Inazuma.[43]
    • ? years ago - The Tanuki-Kitsune war briefly pauses before resuming.[43]
    • 1600 years later - The Tanuki-Kitsune War finally comes to an end after 1600 years of fighting. They negotiate peace as both sides were at a standstill. The Tanuki refuse to admit a loss in the war, but cede the Sacred Sakura to the Kitsune.[43]


  • ? years ago - The previous Hydro Archon creates and uses the Oceanids (as Rhodeia, the Spring Fairy and Endora) as spies in the world.

Other Regions of Liyue

  • ? years ago - Havria, the God of Salt, establishes her domain in Liyue; the original expanse of her territory is unknown, but it included Sal Terrae.[44][45] She was known for being gentle and kind-hearted, but weak.[46] 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.[45]
  • ? 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.[47]

Currently Unknown Regions of Teyvat

  • ? years ago - An ancient tribe living among the mountains feared and worshiped the Thunderbird, which could summon lightning and storms. They created a festival around it and appointed shamans to offer blood sacrifices to it for protection and to interpret its actions as divine revelations. The Thunderbird didn't care for the tribe at all, seeing them as no different from animals. However, one day a boy's singing pierced through the thunderstorm and caught the attention of the Thunderbird, who took a liking to the song and talked to the boy. The boy promised to sing to it again the next time it came. Unfortunately, some time later the boy gave himself as a sacrifice and was killed for the next blood offering to the Thunderbird. The Thunderbird was driven mad by the unkept promise and death of the boy, and rained lighting upon the ancient tribe, killing them all and burning the mountain they lived on. Years later the Thunderbird was hunted down as a monster and killed, and the burned land recovered.[48]
    • It is suggested the tribe lived on Seirai Island or Tsurumi Island, and that Baal slew the Thunderbird during the Archon War. Regardless, the Thunderbird's regret lives on as the Thunder Manifestation, and its feather Peculiar Pinion can be obtained in-game.
  • ? 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.[49]
  • ? 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.[50]

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. For example, in Liyue, the Archon War was fought between many gods, including Morax, Guizhong, Havria, Osial, and more. In Mondstadt, however, the only known conflict during the Archon War was between Andrius and Decarabian.

  • ? years ago - Seven divine seats in Celestia open up, causing the gods to become embroiled in a bitter struggle for supremacy.[37]
    • 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."[51]
    • 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.[52]
      • In Liyue, legends of sea monsters are commonplace due to the "other-shore," a region that lies outside of Teyvat.[53] People in ancient times would use the bones of such sea monsters as figureheads on their ships to frighten away the beasts.[54]


  • >3700 years ago - 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.[34][37] The exact cause of its destruction is unknown and many theories exist among Liyue folklore.
    • "...and there they fought upon the Guili Plains, where black dust choked the heavens and a thousand rocks splintered..."
      "Some stories put it down to conflict between the gods, other people say it was a war between humans. And some sources talk of a sudden, catastrophic natural disaster..."
  • 3700 years ago - Some time after the fall of the Guili Assembly, Morax takes his people south of Mt. Tianheng, where he establishes Liyue Harbor.[Lore Discrepancy 1] He creates a contract with the adepti to defend it.[38][55]
    • The Liyue Qixing, an organization comprised of the seven foremost businesspeople in Liyue Harbor, are established as the leaders of Liyue Harbor. The Millelith Brigade is established under their command to protect the people and defend against monsters.[34][56] The Eight Trades are Liyue's eight primary commerce sectors, each led by a hall.[44]
    • 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.[57][Note 2]
    • 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.[55][58]
      • "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."
      • "I wish not for dominion, yet I cannot watch the common people suffer."[55]
  • 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.[59]
    • 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.[60]
    • 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.[61]
  • >2000 years ago - Morax 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.[62][63]
  • 3700–2000 years ago - The 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.[64] The people who lived at the base of the mountain held him in high regard for this action, even moreso than Morax.[65]
    • 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.[45][46] 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.[44]
      • 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.[44]
    • 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,[66][67][68] 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.[36]
        • ~2600 years ago[Assumption 1] - Chi (in the ancient language, Qingce) makes its nest in the area now known as Mt. Qingce and takes over the region.[69] Morax fights it at a "great height" and succeeds in subduing it. After its death, Chi and its nest transform the area around Mt. Qingce into its current state — 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.[70]
        • People during this time used images to record major events, purportedly because writing had not yet been invented.[70] 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,[71] a Geo Whale,[35] and stone birds.[72]
    • 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.[73] 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.[74]
  • ? 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.[75] 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. However, 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, until only one remained.[58][67][76]
    • The five strongest yakshas were Bosacius, Indarias, Bonanus, Menogias, and Alatus. Indarias, Bonanus, and Menogias died while Bosacius grew weary of the world and disappeared,[77] with the various other yakshas sharing their fates. Ultimately, Alatus (Xiao) became the sole known yaksha left in this world.[76]
  • ? 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".[78] 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.[78] 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." [79]
    • 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.[80]
  • >2000 years ago[Assumption 2] - After suppressing all other gods in his region, Morax becomes the Geo Archon, restoring peace to the land now known as Liyue.


  • >~2600 years ago[Note 3] - Andrius declares war on Decarabian, but fails to land even a scratch on Mondstadt.[81] The war between the two Kings of Ice and Frost[82] turns into a stalemate,[Assumption 3] and Decarabian's people begin to view his rule as one of despotism and tyranny.[83]
    • 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.[16]
    • 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 4] responded to their prayers,[83] as did the God of Time.[84] 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.[4] 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.[85]
    • 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.[86]
    • 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.[87][Assumption 5]
    • Andrius realizes that his blizzards could not nurture life and decides that between his powers and his disillusionment with human society,[88] he did not have the qualifications to become one of the Seven Archons.[89] He chooses to allow his physical body to die while his powers flowed into the land of Mondstadt to nourish it,[21] thus making Barbatos the Anemo Archon of The Seven. Despite losing his original physical form, Andrius' spirit remains extant and his powers are still strong enough that he can manifest a body of ice and wind.[90][Assumption 6]
  • 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),[91][Lore Discrepancy 2] and the Red-Haired Warrior.[92] The Gunnhildr Clan, led by its current namesake Gunnhildr, also participates in the battle.[83] Decarabian is slain in the battle, as are Amos[93] and the Nameless Bard.[22] With Decarabian's death, Barbatos is elevated to godhood himself.[22][83] 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.[86]
    • 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.[22][94][95] Among the notable changes to Mondstadt's landscape was the eradication of Pilos Peak, which was turned into the modern-day Musk Reef.[87] 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 Gunnhildr Clan,[96] led by Gunnhildr,[83]
      • The Imunlaukr Clan,[97] whose leader at the time is unknown, and
      • The Lawrence Clan,[98] led by Venerare.[99]
    • 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,"[100][101] with the belief that "Anemo brings stories while Time nurtures them."[96] However, at some point in time, the worship of the God of Time as well as most records of them disappear and are forgotten.[84]
  • ? 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.[102]
    • 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,[86] while the festival became one about finding love.[103]

Haar Islands (Golden Apple Archipelago)


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.[106][107] Defeated gods who refused to live under The Seven's rule fled to islands in the Dark Sea, where they became evil gods.[108]
    • 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.[106][109][33]
  • 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.[106][109][33] It is unknown how many times those positions have changed hands, but they have since been replaced by the Tsaritsa, the God of Wisdom, Raiden Shogun, the God of Justice, and Murata, respectively. Of them, the God of Wisdom is the newest, having ascended after the cataclysm 500 years ago.[33]
    • The original Seven's sworn duty to guide humanity is no longer honored by some of the newer Archons.[109]

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

Early Aristocratic Period (2600–1600 years ago)

  • <2600 years ago - Dvalin, 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.[110]
  • ? 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.[111] Known clans include the Lawrence Clan, Gunnhildr Clan, and Imunlaukr Clan.[112]
    • 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.[99]
  • 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.[113]
  • Many of the festivals and customs in Mondstadt were enacted by the aristocracy for the betterment of the common people.[111] 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.[95]
    • Windblume, a festival that celebrates the Thousand Winds.
  • 2600–500 years ago[Note 4] - 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.[114] 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.[115]

Late Aristocratic Period (1600–1000 years ago)

  • ? years ago - At some point, Ursa the Drake starts terrorizing Mondstadt.[95]
  • ? years ago - At some point in time, the Lawrence Clan became the foremost clan in Mondstadt and became the main rulers of the city.[95] 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.[98]
    • The Gunnhildr Clan allegedly maintained its honor,[83] 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;[111][116] knowledge of the past was suppressed, and cultural and historical relics that would point towards the truth were taken down.[99]
    • 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.[102][117]
    • 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.[118]
    • The Church of Favonius suffers a schism, with the higher-ranked clergy backing the nobility.[119]
  • >1010 years ago - Vennessa and her younger sister Linda are born into a nomadic tribe of the southern plains, exiled from its homeland for reasons unknown.[116][120]
    • 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.[95] 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.[121]
  • ~>1000 years ago- Eberhart, 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,[122] 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.[123]
      • 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,[124] 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.[123][125] 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.[122][126][Assumption 7]
  • >1000 years ago[Assumption 8] - The Wanderer's Troupe is established, comprised of people from all over Teyvat.[127] 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.[128][129] 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.[129]
    • 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.[127][130]
    • The Dawnlight Swordswoman, also known as the sword dancer, wielded The Flute and was the third to join the Troupe.[130] 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."[131][132]
    • Kreuzleid, who abandoned the Lawrence Clan, was the fourth to join the Troupe.[130] 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.[133]
      • 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.[133]
  • ? 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.[134][135]
    • ~1000 years ago, after the Gladiator's death[136] - 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.[137]
    • 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.[138]
    • 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.[136]
    • 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,[126] 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.[122]
    • 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.[126] However, there are no records of Eberhart's return, leaving his ultimate fate a mystery.[137]

Mondstadt Reborn (1000–500 years ago)

  • 1000 years ago, after Ludi Harpastum[Assumption 9] - 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.[95][139]
    • 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.[102]
    • Ragnvindr[140] and Kreuzlied[133] are among those who assisted Vennessa's rebellion, as were adherents to the Church of Favonius mobilized by the Nameless Shepherd.[119] 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.[141] Those who proved themselves uncorrupted, such as the Gunnhildr Clan, were allowed to remain.[83]
    • 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.[120][142][143]
      • After the Knights of Favonius was established, a certain Knight of Boreas arrives at Mondstadt and joins them.[144] 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.[145]
    • 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.[140]
      • 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.[99]
  • ? years ago - The Four Winds are established, with Andrius 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.[143][Lore Discrepancy 3]
  • ? 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.[102][146]
    • This tree has a mysterious connection to Celestia; Venti channels power from it to purify himself from the Abyss' influence,[147] as well as to heal his body after getting his Gnosis forcefully taken by Signora.[148]
  • ? 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.[140]
  • ? years ago - Andrius and his wolf pack did not originally live in Wolvendom, but moved there at an unknown point in time.[4] It is unclear whether the Temple of the Wolf, located near the Thousand Winds Temple, formerly housed Andrius' spirit.

Liyue (2000–500 years ago)

    • 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.[33][106][109]
  • 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.[149]
    • Ganyu becomes secretary to the Liyue Qixing.[33]
    • 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.[33][106][109]
  • ? 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.'[150] After several hundred years, however, the organization dwindled and became the Guhua Clan.
  • March 3, ? years ago - Qiqi 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.[151]
  • >1000 years ago - Azhdaha 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.[152]
  • 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.[152] He destroys the settlement at Tianqiu Valley in the process.[153]


  • ? years ago - Orobashi no Mikoto arrives in Byakuya no Kuni, where it finds a group of abandoned people harassed by the Dragonheir of the Depths. Orobashi defeats the Dragonheir and becomes the people's god,[156] after which it became known as "Orobashi no Mikoto" and the "Watatsumi Omikami" (Great God of the Oceans).[157] It creates Watatsumi Island out of the coral that grew from its body, allowing them to live above the surface once more.[42]
    • Orobashi's people call this land Sangonomiya, and themselves the Sangonomiya Clan. They begin calling Byakuya no Kuni, "Enkanomiya," to contrast it with Sangonomiya.[156]
  • ? years ago - The Sacred Sakura Cleansing Ritual is developed. Both the Narukami and the Watatsumi are to be worshipped before beginning the ritual.[158]
  • ? years ago - Orobashi suddenly attacks Yashiori Island, leading to a brutal war between the Sangonomiya and the Shogunate, led by Beelzebul. Her lieutenant, the tengu Sasayuri, is among the Shogunate casualties, while Beelzebul slays Orobashi with
  • ? years ago - The unnamed author of New Chronicles of the Six Kitsune is born in the Hakushin Lands.[159][Assumption 10]
  • ? years ago - The Kitsune Saiguu moves from the Hakushin Lands to the Grand Narukami Shrine.[160]
    • At some point in time, the Kitsune Saiguu defeats the Great Tengu in a race, and the Great Tengu becomes her bodyguard thereafter.[161]
  • ? years ago - The kitsune Yae Miko is born in the Hakushin Lands.[Assumption 10] She eventually moves to Grand Narukami Shrine out of admiration for the Kitsune Saiguu.[160]


  • ? years ago - Under the orders of the original Hydro Archon to spread her love throughout Teyvat and connect the world through water, the Lochfolk (Oceanids) spread throughout Teyvat as her "spies."[162][163]
  • ? years ago - The original Hydro Archon dies and the God of Justice takes over. Due to differences in ideology between the original Hydro Archon and the new God of Justice, the Lochfolk refuse to obey the God of Justice and go on self-imposed exiles from Fontaine.[163]




  • >500 years ago - Arundolyn and Rostam 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."[164][165][166]
    • Rostam gained the title of Wolf Pup when he was 27 years old.[167] He preferred doing dirty work in the shadows, without restraints of being a knight, so that Arundolyn could remain a model knight.[168] It is said that he continued running the secret society established around 500 years earlier by Kreuzlied.[133]
    • Rostam taught the Knights of Favonius his sword style, the Favonius Bladework, which continues to be used to this day.[167][168] 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.[164]


  • ? years ago - Morax signs a contract, agreeing to not disclose whatever is about to happen in the cataclysm.[152]


  • ? years ago - Asase Hibiki moves from the Asase Shrine to the Grand Narukami Shrine to receive training.[169]
  • ? years ago - Takamine the Mistsplitter challenges the Great Tengu to a duel, which ends in a tie. In exchange for the Tengu's bow, Thundering Pulse, Takamine becomes her servant for several years and resides in the Grand Narukami Shrine. He learns some of their archery and swordsmanship and becomes a renowned swordsman himself.[170] Feeling that his archery skills were going to waste, he teaches Hibiki his techniques.[169][171]
  • ? years ago - The onmyouji Kannagara Harunosuke trains at the Grand Narukami Shrine and becomes familiar with Hibiki and Takamine.
  • ? years ago - The kitsune Yuurakusai writes the original Chronicles of the Six Kitsune.[172]
  • ~500 years ago - Yuurakusai does something that greatly angers the Kitsune Saiguu, leading her to banish him. What he did is no longer clear, but it may relate to the Abyss' invasion of Teyvat during the cataclysm.[160]
    • After Yuurakusai's banishment, the Kitsune Saiguu moves from the Grand Narukami Shrine to Tenshukaku in preparation for the Abyss' attack.[160]


  • >500 years ago - Dainsleif is born.
  • ? years ago - Pierro 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.[173]

The Cataclysm (500 years ago)

  • Monsters from the Abyss invade the aboveground world of Teyvat, causing widespread devastation.[174]
  • The Kingdom of Khaenri'ah is destroyed by the Heavenly Principles,[175] causing the fall of the Eclipse Dynasty and the entire civilization.[110] Khaenri'ah's destruction causes a devastating ripple effect.[176]
  • Aether and Lumine fall to Teyvat while traveling between different worlds after their home world was destroyed.[177] They crash-land and fall unconscious from their "meteorite" impact.
    • The Traveler's sibling wakes up first and travels Teyvat with Dainsleif, searching for the truth of the mysterious world and its secrets. At the end of their journey, the sibling witnesses the cataclysm[178] 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.[179][180]
    • 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.[179][181]


  • 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.[182]
  • The Traveler's Sibling, who had traveled with Dainsleif in Teyvat for a time and discovered the "truth of this world," 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.[179][180]


  • 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.[165]
    • Rostam mentored a White Knight who loved justice above all else and fought against the monsters of Khaenri'ah.[168][183][184] As he fought monsters, he came to be known as the Bloodstained Knight, and people started fearing him.[184] 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.[184]
  • A group called "the sinners" creates Durin. Albedo speculates that the main creator is his own master, Rhinedottir.[185][186]
  • The "Mother" of Durin and the other creatures sends them to the continent of Teyvat.[187] But Durin gets corrupted by Gold and attacks Mondstadt.[144][174][188][189][190]
  • 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. As a result, there was also no one strong enough to take on Durin.[144][164][165][166][167][168]
  • As a result, the people's cry for help are heard by the Anemo Archon and Dvalin is called upon by Barbatos and defeats Durin, but ingests Durin's poisonous blood and goes to Old Mondstadt falling into deep slumber.[144][188][189][190][191]
    • When he opened his eyes, he was in the sky above a mountain swept by roaring snowstorms. The green, tranquil land had already been painted crimson by fire and blood, And the song of that sky-blue bard's lyre was almost drowned in the howling tumult. And that bejeweled, lovely dragon, like a tender lover, Had now pierced his neck through with its sharp fangs.[192]
      This might be Durin finally breaking out of the corruption that clouded its mind, just as Dvalin lands a fatal blow.
  • Durin falls down on Dragonspine, and the power inside Durin seeps into the land of Dragonspine, due to its extreme unnatural cold. 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.[192]
  • Rosalyne-Kruzchka Lohefalter returns to Mondstadt and learns of Rostam's death. She becomes the Crimson Witch of Flame.[193][Assumption 12]


  • The residents of the city at Dunyu Ruins abandon the area due to the emerging abyssal influence, and it becomes a ruin.[39]


  • Takamine the Mistsplitter and Chiyo of the Mikoshi Clan are among those who campaigned alongside Baal against the dark forces that emerged during the cataclysm.[169][194]
    • Takamine is eventually overwhelmed by the monsters and disappears, despite his determination to return to Hibiki's side.[195]
    • 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.[196]
  • ? years ago - Chiyo turns her blade on Baal, only to be defeated and driven away. This betrayal tarnishes the Mikoshi Clan's reputation.[196]
    • Over time, the tale of "Chiyo the Tiger-Bite" would evolve into that of Torachiyo, a male lieutenant of Baal's.[197][Lore Discrepancy 4]
  • ? years ago - The Kitsune Saiguu is consumed by the dark forces and most of her memories are dissolved into filth.[161] The uncorrupted remains of her memories eventually manifest as Kazari.[198]
  • During Khaenri'ah's destruction - Both Baal (Raiden Makoto) and Beelzebul (Raiden Ei) participate in the battle in Khaenri'ah, where Baal is slain.[175]


Post-Cataclysm (500–100 years ago)

  • <500 years ago - Following the cataclysm, the God of Wisdom rises to position of Dendro Archon to replace the one slain during the chaos.[33] Meanwhile, for reasons yet unclear, the Tsaritsa cuts all ties with Barbatos.[148]
    • The amount and activity of hilichurls in Teyvat drastically increases,[200] suggesting some of them may have been Khaenri'an denizens who were transformed into hilichurls as punishment for the cataclysm.
  • <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."[201][202][203]
  • <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, before parting ways with him due to "differing ideals" [204]
    • At an unknown point in time, the sibling assumes leadership of the Abyss Order.[205]
  • ? years ago - Pierro becomes the first of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers.[206]
  • ? years ago[Assumption 13] - Before the Crimson Witch of Flame could be fully devoured by her own flames, Pierro, the 1st of the Fatui Harbingers, finds her and recruits her, giving her a Cryo Delusion to put out her flames.[207][208][209][210] The Crimson Witch of Flame becomes Signora, the 8th of the Fatui Harbingers.
  • 400 years ago - Jacob Musk, 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.
  • >300 years ago - Olaf is born.
  • 300 years ago - A certain breed of boar, prized for its extraordinarily sumptuous taste, is driven to extinction everywhere besides Dragonspine.[211]
    • Olaf, a denizen from Springvale, is frozen by a Cryo Regisvine while attempting to hunt such a boar, making him at least 300 years old in present day.[212] According to stories passed down during his time, Springvale was formed around a spring created by melted ice and snow from Dragonspine,[213] so it was established after Sal Vindagnyr froze over.
      • Legends of the Spring Fairy at Springvale were unheard of during Olaf's time,[213] making the spring fairy's story recounted in Heart of Clear Springs occur at an unknown point after his accidental cryopreservation.
  • <200 years ago - A lochfolk, the Spring Fairy, moves into Springvale from Fontaine and blesses its spring waters.[214]

Recent Past (<100 years ago)

Note: The bullets below are arranged in order of relative reverse chronological order, estimated based on characters' apparent ages.

  • ? years ago - The incident known as "The Lost Statue of the Seven" occurs.
    • A Statue of the Seven in Mondstadt vanished overnight. Although nearly every member of the Church of Favonius searched for it, it was never found.[114] This Statue was stolen by the Abyss Order for their "Loom of Fate" operation and is now the Defiled Statue.[215][Note 5]
  • 50–40 years ago - Amber's grandfather, a renowned mercenary leader from Liyue,[216] falls victim to a disastrous monster attack that leaves him the sole survivor. After being saved by a doctor from the Knights of Favonius, he decides to move to Mondstadt and become a member himself. There, he established the Outriders, a division of archer scouts whose members he personally trained. He also starts a family there.[217]
    • Amber's grandfather is implied to be the adventurer whom Granny Ruoxin fell in love with and promised to live with at Qingce Village, who embarked on an expedition only to disappear. The Qingce Village Bulletin Board contains a message about an unnamed former villager who went to Mondstadt to become a knight, who has recently (as of the present day) returned only to "skulk about," though his manner of using a wind glider is apparently unmistakable.
  • ~40–20 years ago - Big G has an accident and passes away. The village at Wuwang hill suffers (another) disaster, and all the village's inhabitants (including Little Wu, Meng, Mumu, and Congzi) abandon their hometown, heading to Liyue Harbor.[218]
  • 30 years ago - Tejima arrives in Konda Village and settles there, using his vision to protect the villagers from both internal and external threats.[219]
  • ? years ago - The famous adventurer Seamus Pegg decides to settle down in Mondstadt, joining the Church of Favonius and eventually rising to the position of Cardinal of Daybreak. He also falls in love with Frederica Gunnhildr of the Gunnhildr Clan.
    • ~25–15 years ago - Seamus and Frederica have two daughters together, Jean and Barbara. Some years later, the two lovers have a falling out and separate; Jean stays with Frederica, while Barbara goes with Seamus.[220]
  • ? years ago - The Wangshu Inn is constructed at Dihua Marsh by the Liyue Qixing, operated by Verr Goldet and Huai'an, in order to provide covert support for Xiao.[221]
  • ? years ago - Collei is born sickly, and is given to a seer named Barnabas[222] for treatment. Unbeknownst to her parents, however, Barnabas is an agent of the Fatui and turns Collei into a test subject for their Archon Residue experiments.[223][224]
  • 12 years ago - Diluc receives his Vision at age 10.[225]
  • >10 years 6 months ago, end of summer - Kaeya is abandoned by his biological father near the Dawn Winery as part of an "ancient plot," presumably to save Khaenri'ah. Crepus finds him and takes him in, raising him alongside Diluc.[226][Note 6]
  • 10 years ago - Frederica prepares strict training regimens for Jean, which continues to influence her habits long after she became a member of the Knights of Favonius.[227]
  • 8 years ago - Diluc becomes the Cavalry Captain of the Knights of Favonius at 14 years old,[225] making him the youngest-ever holder of any captaincy within the Order.[228]
  • 8–4 years ago - The following events presumably occur sometime between 8–4 years ago. The events are listed in a tentative chronological order, but there is no confirmation on when exactly they occurred relative to the present.
    • Jean is conferred the title of Dandelion Knight at 15 years old.[146]
    • After running away from home in a fit of boredom, a 14-year-old Ajax (later known as Tartaglia or Childe) falls into the Abyss, where he meets a swordswoman called Skirk.[229] She teaches him how to navigate through the Abyss, trains him to fight, and hones his ability to cause chaos around him. After spending three months there, he returns to Teyvat, where only three days had passed since his disappearance.[230]
      • The newfound havoc Ajax left in his wake led his father to hand him over to the Fatui, where his uncanny prowess in battle caught the attention of Pulcinella, the 5th Harbinger. Ajax was officially inducted into the Fatui and worked his way up,[231] until he became the youngest-ever Harbinger to join their ranks.[232]
    • Hu Tao's grandfather dies when she is 13. She takes over Wangsheng Funeral Parlor as the 77th director. Her grandfather's funeral is the first funeral she oversees. She receives her Vision after her visit to Wuwang Hill to see if he has moved on to the afterlife peacefully.[233]
    • On the night of Diona's seventh birthday, she is blessed by the Spring Fairy of Springvale with the ability to make delectable beverages, no matter the ingredients.[234]
  • 4 years ago - Two notable events occur in Mondstadt during this time period: The death of Crepus Ragnvindr, and the disappearance of Amber's grandfather.
    • April 30, 4 years ago - On Diluc's 18th birthday, Crepus Ragnvindr dies after using a Delusion to protect his and Diluc's caravan from Ursa the Drake,[235] which was lured to them by the Fatui using metal bugs that emit the aroma of Mist Grass.[236] Afterwards, Eroch, an inspector within the Knights of Favonius, orders that the cause of Crepus' death be covered up to maintain the Knights of Favonius' dignity, attributing Ursa's retreat to Diluc while labeling Crepus as a victim of the monster attack. In a fit of rage, Diluc resigns from the Knights of Favonius and abandons his Vision to investigate the truth behind Delusions for himself.[237][238]
      • 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,[239][240] 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.[225][241] The manga's flashback is ambiguous and can favor either interpretation.[235][Note 7]
      • On the night of Crepus' death, Kaeya reveals the truth about his origins and purpose to Diluc. In the ensuing fight, Kaeya gains his Vision.[241]
    • Shortly after Crepus' death, the Fatui use the metal bugs again to lure out Ursa the Drake so Dottore can slay it, forcing Mondstadt to be indebted to the Fatui and giving them leverage in the city's affairs.[224]
    • 4 years ago, after Crepus' death[Assumption 14] - Amber's grandfather abruptly resigns from the Knights of Favonius and disappears,[216] leading to rumors that he had defected. Amber joined the Outriders shortly before this and watches as the division crumbles in the absence of its leader.[242] Determined to live up to her grandfather's reputation and uncover the mystery behind his disappearance, Amber gains a Vision shortly after becoming an official Outrider.[243][Lore Discrepancy 5]
      • At some point after leaving Mondstadt, a man matching his description returns to Qingce Village some 40–50 years after he last visited the village.[244]
  • <4 years ago - The following events presumably occur sometime between 4 years ago and the present. The events are listed in a tentative chronological order, but there is no confirmation on when exactly they occurred relative to the present.
    • Eroch is found to be a traitor and is purged from the Knights of Favonius along with his co-conspirators,[245] while Jean is promoted from Captain to Master of Knights. Rooting out Eroch's allies while thwarting the plots of the Abyss Order grants Jean her Vision.[246]
    • After two years of study at Sumeru Academia, Lisa graduates. Disillusioned with the atmosphere there, she returns to Mondstadt and joins the Knights of Favonius. 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.[247]
    • May 28, ? years ago - Fischl gains her Vision the moment her 14th birthday is over.[248] Shortly afterwards, she becomes an investigator at the Adventurers' Guild despite her young age thanks to her Vision and her parents' influence.[249]
    • Razor meets Varka, the current Knight of Boreas, when the man visits Wolvendom one day.[250] Varka gives him his name and teaches him how to use claymores, but embarks on his expedition before ever giving Razor his own name.[251] At some point, he also gains an Electro Vision while attempting to save his lupical from an Abyss Mage. Several months or years later, he comes across Lisa, who decides to become his teacher.[252]
    • Qiqi, still trapped in amber after hundreds of years, is discovered and taken to the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor for burial. 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.[253]
    • The Traveler wakes up after being attacked by the Unknown God, finding the current state of Teyvat unfamiliar. They continue wandering alone for some time until they meet Paimon.[254]
  • 3 years ago - Klee is entrusted to Albedo and the Knights of Favonius by her parents.[255]
    • ~3 years ago[Assumption 15] - Rhinedottir and Albedo discover an artifact called The Heart of Naberius within the heart of a dungeon in an unknown region. 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.[256] After finding Alice, Albedo is sent to the Knights of Favonius, who could supply him with a laboratory with which to conduct his research. There, his prowess in the Art of Khemia, a yet-unseen art in Mondstadt,[257] lands him the position of Chief Alchemist.[258]
    • Diluc journeys across Teyvat to seek the truth behind the Delusions. He discovers that the Fatui are behind them and, in the process of finding out more, lays waste to countless Fatui strongholds. Unable to ignore this threat, the Eleven Fatui Harbingers set up a trap for him and nearly kill him, but he narrowly escapes due to a "third-party observer from the north." This observer is part of an underground network which Diluc joins.
  • 1 year ago - For reasons unknown, the Electro Archon, Ei, suddenly implements the Sakoku Decree and Vision Hunt Decree, shutting Inazuma's borders and seizing all Visions within Inazuma's borders,[259] with a few exceptions. Furthermore, since then, no new Electro Visions are known to have appeared, though preexisting Visions can still be used.[260]
    • Dongsheng commits tax evasion by intentionally failing to declare some furniture he had made at Fanmu's Carpenters.[261]
  • 6 months ago - Grand Master Varka takes the elites of the Knights of Favonius, as well as the cavalry,[262] with him on an expedition away from Mondstadt, appointing Jean as Acting Grand Master in his absence.[263] Seamus Pegg and Godwin are among those who went with him,[264] though Godwin was left behind when he took the time to look for Glory's good-luck charm that he misplaced.[265]
    • After Varka's departure, Diluc returns to Mondstadt, taking over as head of the Dawn Winery that he had entrusted to Adelinde and Elzer and taking up his Vision once more. Around this same time, a mysterious entity who becomes known as the "Darknight Hero" appears, prowling Mondstadt at night and fending off threats to the city. Unbeknownst to most people, this hero is Diluc himself.[245]
    • A thief steals an artifact from a certain eastern temple in Mondstadt, a vial supposedly containing Barbatos' breath. 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.[266]
  • Last Ludi Harpastum (~1 year to 6 months ago)[Lore Discrepancy 6] - The events of the manga's main story occur.
    • The Fatui, led by 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 Academia 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.[267] 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 Academia 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.[268]
    • 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.[269]
      • 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 7]
  • 2 months ago - The Traveler meets Paimon after saving her from drowning by fishing her out.[181] After teaching the Traveler the common Teyvat language, she suggests that they look for the Seven Archons to see if they have clues about their sibling's whereabouts.

The Beginning


  • 200 years ago - The most talented scholar of Sumeru Academia (before Lisa) graduates.
  • 20 years ago - The last time the Mingxiao Lantern of the Lantern Rite Festival was as big as it is in present day.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. The Biography of Gunnhildr gives the earliest known date for Andrius 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.
  4. 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 Andrius' 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.
  5. 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."
  6. It is currently unknown exactly when Kaeya told his story that happened "a decade ago" to the Grand Master.
  7. 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.

Lore Discrepancies

  1. Stone Tablet Compilations gives the impression that Morax moved his people south to Liyue Harbor immediately after the fall of Guili Plains. However, based on the Archive description for Guili Plains, the Legend of the Geo Archon stories, and Zhongli's dialogue during "Shadow of Yore," it appears a long time passed in between. The Archive says that "those who gathered here were once again scattered," while the Legend of the Geo Archon stories imply that the first inhabitants of Liyue Harbor had to relearn how to create houses and stoves, which would be odd if it was established shortly after the fall of a relatively advanced and prosperous civilization like the Guili Assembly.
  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. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Amber's Character Story 3 and Vision Story conflict on whether she joined the Outriders before or after her grandfather's disappearance.
    One possible explanation which would resolve this discrepancy is that new members are not considered official Outriders until they have finished a training period. Amber's Character Story 3 says she was "admitted to the Outriders" before her grandfather's disappearance, whereas her Vision Story specifies that she "officially became an Outrider" after her grandfather's disappearance.
  6. 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, this does not match the timeline according to Diluc's stories: he returned to Mondstadt after Varka left on his expedition, setting his return 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.
  7. 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 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."

Editor's Assumptions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. According to Fragment of Decarabian's Epic, Andrius 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 Andrius. It can be assumed that Decarabian either had no interest in fighting Andrius or was equally incapable of overcoming the other god. Andrius eventually chose to die of his own volition while Decarabian was slain by humans and the wind spirit, leaving their conflict a draw.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. It is unknown when Andrius died. The land outside of Decarabian's Mondstadt was a snowy wasteland, which would indicate that Andrius 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 Andrius had already chosen to remove himself from the Archon War via death by the time Barbatos rose.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 10.0 10.1 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.
  11. 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 Raiden 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.
  12. As Rosalyne set out to burn demons and monsters, the cataclysm may have still been ongoing when she became the Crimson Witch of Flame.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
