Celestia and the First Civilization

  •  ? BP "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. In those days, life was weak, and the earth was blanketed in unending ice."
    [1] A long time ago, the people could hear revelations directly from Celestia, and the envoys of the gods would walk among humanity. The earth was completely covered in ice.
    • "Once upon a time, the people of the land could hear revelations from the heavens directly.
      The envoys of the gods walked among benighted humanity then."
      [2] [3] [4]
  •  ? BP "The eternal ice had just begun to thaw, and the first fires were still new." [2] The ice melts and the first fire begins.
    • "It was a time of great prosperity, when all was left in the hands of such heavenly revelations." [2] Celestia guides humanity with revelations, bringing prosperity.
    • "The envoys of heaven said that the world would soon enter a new and brighter age.
      This was predestined, that future immutable."
      [2] A new age will come and the future cannot be changed.
      • "But would a day come when such wonderful times might come to an end?
        To this question the envoys gave no answer."
        [2] The gods either didn't know or knew but wouldn't want to say it.
      • "So, the people chose from among them a chief priest,
        And adorning his head with a crown of white branches, they sent him out into the deep places of the world,
        To antediluvian ruins and long-buried altars of sacrifice, to seek answers and enlightenment..."
        [2] Since they wanted to know, they chose a chief priest among them, gave him a crown of white branches, and sent him into the deep places of the world to seek the truth.
        • The chief priest might actually be what we know now as an Abyss Mage and the crown of white branches being the ley line branches. [5]
  •  ? BP "[...] the ancient flames were extinguished amidst the first falling rains." [3] The fire is extinguished and the first rain comes.
    • "It was a prosperous time, a period of bountiful harvest." [3] Another prosperous time with bountiful harvest.
    • "Then the earth was blessed and ruled by heaven, and the elemental flows were smooth and well-ordered." [3] Celestia blesses and rules over earth, making the elemental flows smooth and well-ordered.
    • "A hundred years of bounty were written in the stars, and none could change this divine law." [3] Another revelation by Celestia that cannot be changed.
      • "But what of the time after, a hundred, a thousand years from now? Would they have famine where they had plenty, poverty where once were riches?
        Would their altars and palaces become one with the soil, with only that silver-white tree for company?
        The heavenly envoys, who ever spoke what they knew, were silent."
        [3] The gods, once again, didn't answer the people's concerns about the future, either because they didn't know or they didn't want them to know.
        • The silver-white tree might be the tree that is used by the people who make the crown of white branches for the chief priest, meaning the ley line tree where the ley line branches of the Abyss Mages. [6]
      • "So to understand this doom,
        The chief priest, head crowned with white branches, would delve into the deep places of the world..."
        [3] They send chief priest to seek the truth again.
  •  ? BP "[...] the waters ran dry as thunder first pierced the skies." [4] The water dries and the first thunder comes.
    • "People enjoyed untold wisdom, and that wisdom was their boon.
      Their prosperity brought pride and ambition, and the mind to question."
      [4] The people now get wisdom, and together with it, pride, ambition, and a mind to question.
    • "So they questioned the heavens' authority, and schemed to enter the garden of gods.
      And though they had promised to the people divine love, prosperity and wisdom, the envoys of heaven were angry.
      For to question eternity was forbidden,
      For earth to challenge sky, inexpiable."
      [4] The people questioned Celestia's authority and tried to enter it. The gods were angry, as it is forbidden to question them and unforgivable to challenge Celestia.
    • "So the chief priest who wore the white-branched crown went forth to appease the divine envoys,
      And into the deep places he went, seeking the hidden wisdom of the silver tree in the ancient capitol..."
      [4] The chief priest tries to calm down the gods and goes again in search for "hidden wisdom".
      • All this could explain why the Abyss Order hates the gods and all of humanity. The gods and Celestia because they don't want anyone to question and challenge them, and humanity because they still worship them.
        • The current Hilichurls might be that same people of back then, hence why Abyss Mages are able to communicate with them. [7]
      • "They say that,
        The line of chief priests have always seen this same sight as their days draw to an end:
        A mountain of crowns in a secret place, beneath a withered tree——each one hiding a lifetime of secrets kept.
        Each retiring chief priest offers up their crown of flawless white branches to this world.
        Every mighty and ancient city, and every austere place of sacrifice must one day return to profundity in the earth.
        All prosperity must someday end.
        But this does not mean that nothing is eternal.
        At the end of a cycle, the earth shall be renewed. Thus eternity is cyclical.
        The search for truth is a product of prosperity, and not the seed that plants it."
        [1] It seems that the world of Genshin Impact is in an eternal cycle that Celestia oversees, and makes sure all goes according to their revelations.
  •  ? BP "Long ago, three bright moons once hung high in the night sky." [8] It seems there were three moons in the past instead of one.
    • "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." They came to be even before the Geo Archon and the earth itself.
    • "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."
    • "These three luminous moons shared but one love, the stars of daybreak. Only at the fleeting moments when day and night converged could one of the three sisters pass the fading stars and gaze upon the chambers of the morning stars. Moments later, as the new dawn would break over the horizon, the carriage would quickly ferry the night’s sister away." This is how they were exchanging places thrice a month.
    • "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..." The moon we see in the sky is the corpse of one of the sisters.
    • "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." This could mean that Andrius (and maybe Razor as well) know about the moons and what calamity befell them.
    • "Or that once there were three bright moons in the night sky named Aria, Sonnet and Canon, sisters who were parted by death in a great catastrophe." [9] The three moons' names were Aria, Sonnet, and Canon.

Liyue is Born

  • 3700 years BP - "But I suppose you have yet to experience the substance of Liyue's three thousand and seven hundred years of divinity." [10] Rex Lapis establishes Liyue.
    • "Guizhong, the Lord of Dust was an ally to the Lord of Geo." [11] Guizhong and Rex Lapis were allies.
      • "She brought her people to the north of Mt. Tianheng and taught them to tend the soil. Agriculture became their livelihood, and all prospered from it. The farming towns stretched for miles, and it was said that one could walk all the way to Stone Gate without ever leaving the network of pathways between the fields." [11] Guizhong brings her followers north of Mt. Tianheng.
      • "Guizhong said to the Lord of Rock: "My people had left their home and came to this place. Here, they are happy in their abodes and content in their work, thus it is as if they have returned home. Hence, what better name to call this place than 'the Plains of the Returning and Departing?'" The Lord of Rock praised the Lord of Dust for her work, and thereafter the area was named in the tongue of Liyue "Guili Plains."" [11] The place is what we know now as Guili Plains.
        • "Records suggest that prior to the Archon War, this area was a thriving marketplace." [12]
    • "The Geo Archon grew in strength and stature because of the people's belief in him." [13] It seems that gods grow stronger the more people believe in them.
  •  ? BP - Andrius was a lone wolf, then became a king of a pack of wolves, and then slowly lost all the other wolves through the wastelands. All he had were scars that covered his body. [14]
    • "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." Andrius, with his pack, traveled through this wasteland. It seems that the Seelie used to have palaces, probably even a city. [14]
  •  ? BP - Andrius meets a white maiden, probably a Seelie, that sings a song made for humans, but now sings to mourn the Seelie's own fate. [14]

The Lord of the Tower and the King of the North Wind

  • 3000 years BP - The war between the Lord of the Tower, Decarabian, and the King of the North Wind, Andrius, begins. [15]
    • "Andrius once declared war upon Decarabian, but failed to even scratch the capital of the Lord of the Tower. If it were not for the song of freedom that shattered the city in an instant, Decarabian's dream would have gone on forever." [16]
    • A long time ago, the Kings of Ice and Frost fought engulfing the land of Mondstadt in ice and snow, and they are Decarabian and Andrius. In this period of time, the first wine of Mondstadt was made. [17]
    • "It was the era when the Tyrant of the North Wind warred with the Lord of the Tower." [18]
      • "In those days, the city called "Mondstadts" was surrounded on all sides by gales impenetrable even to the birds of the air. Their ceaseless howling ground the soil and rock of that city into smooth, flowing dust." [19] Decarabian had locked the city of Mondstadt inside of an eternal storm, to protect the city from the outside lands, as they were a frozen wasteland.
        • Lupus Boreas, being another name for Andrius, was the reason why the land was a realm of sub-zero blizzards and ice storms filled with razor-sharp ice shards. [20]
      • "The Lord of Wind who lived in his high tower was Decarabian, God of Storms. He squinted from on high at his subjects, who bowed before him in unceasing wind, and, believing them submissive, thought this good.
        The ruler had believed that he had given his subjects a city free from the bitter cold, and to the end, he believed that they had loved him as he loved them."
        [19] Decarabian believed is was doing the right thing for the people.
        • Decarabian was the Lord of Storms and previous Anemo Archon. [21] [22]
      • "If we look back through history, we learn that Mondstadt is situated on a land that was once frozen, where the living conditions were harsh and brewing would be virtually impossible." [23]
      • "Long time ago in the age when the icy winds blew, our forebears brewed this wine in secret, deep within the frozen earth, to give them the strength to keep surviving. The method they used to brew this kind of wine was forgotten when the people's fate took a turn for the better, and their lives became more joyful." [24]
      • The upcoming trilogy of "History of Kings and Clans" will talk about these two Kings on the first section. [25]
      • Another name for Decarabian was "King of Gales". [26]
        • "I blew up a few arcades so people can climb up the tower more easily. Looks quite good to me. The ruin feels more ancient now." [26] It seems that the reason why we could easily ascend the tower in Stormterror's Lair was because Alice blew it up.
    • Decarabian's tower is the present-day Stormterror's Lair. [27]
  •  ? BP - At some point there was a Sea God. [28]
  •  ? BP - The Salt God roams free in Liyue. [29]
    • "According to a legend that time has unfortunately stripped of all useful detail, she once handed out bunches of flowers to her people as a blessing to them. Or at least, if not a blessing, then a small gesture of comfort to stave off the bitterness of wartime existence."
  •  ? BP - "The blade's first and final master was a martial nomad who went by the name Guhua.
    It is said he was an adeptus. While Guhua lived, bandits dared not act and the wilderness knew peace like that of the city.
    Allegedly, at the end of his journey he ascended in a purple haze and became a star."
    [30] At some point there is an adeptus called Guhua.
    • "One to whom Guhua had shown kindness founded what is now known as the Guhua School in his honor. But no school is destined to last forever." Someone establishes what is now known as the Guhua School.

The Archon War

  • 2600 years BP "Around 2,600 years ago, the Archon War had yet to end, and the world had yet to fall under the dominion of The Seven." [19] The Archon War has already began by this time.
    • "As we all know, Teyvat was plunged into chaos two and a half millennia ago when the gods declared war on each other, the ensuing conflict spreading to all people in all corners of the land." [31] 2500 years ago it was still at war.
      • "Teyvat may not have been divided into the same seven nations we know today back in that age, but then, just as now, the people had their own settlements, cities and civilizations..." [31] It seems that Teyvat was not divided into 7 nations before the Archon War.
    • "In a barren ancient time, when the now-verdant land was still but a wasteland, a maiden, barefoot in the snow, followed the footsteps of the Lord of the Tower." [18] A maiden in love with Decarabian follows him.
      • "Awoken from blind love, she realized she was the only one who spoke with sincerity." [18] She realizes that he does not love her the same way she does.
    • Gunnhildr's father used to serve under Decarabian, but then left the city with his clan. [15]
      • "Just when all hope seemed to be lost for the wandering clan, a spirit from the midst of the myriad winds heard Gunnhildr’s prayers." [15] Probably Barbatos as a wind spirit.
      • "The sincere plea of a clan chief’s young daughter joined with a people’s cry of help, a cry that the blizzard had all but drowned out, and became a faith. The faith gathered in front of the wind spirit like water flowing into a spring and became the source from which the wind spirit drew its power. The wind spirit used this power to make a small shelter for the clan, and bestowed upon the clan chief’s daughter the power to protect." [15] Barbatos, just like Rex Lapis, gained his initial powers through faith.
      • Gunnhildr's father dies and she takes his place as the clan leader and first priestess. [15]
      • Barbatos challenges Decarabian, but it seems that Gunnhildr tries to stop him from doing so, although unsuccessfully. [15]
    • At the same time, Barbatos, a single, shapeless wisp among the thousand winds, encounters a young boy who lived under Decarabian's rule. [32]
      • "In those days, Venti was but a single thread of the thousand winds that roared through the northern lands.
        In Mondstadt of old, Venti met a young boy. This lad knew how to play the lyre, and longed to write the greatest poem of all."
    • After meeting Barbatos and becoming friends, the boy led a revolt against Decarabian, defeating him, destroying the tower, and bringing peace and freedom to the land, but at the cost of the boy's life. [32]
      • "Then, war broke out in Mondstadt, in the name of freedom.
        With the feather tucked away in his breast pocket, Venti watched the fall of the eccentric ruler amid the wrack and ruin of revolt together with his friend. [...]
        Yet, despite the victory, Venti was never able to give that feather to the lad, for that lad had fallen in the battle for the sake of song, sky, and birds, and for the people who, like him, had dwelled within the storm-wall."
      • "At the end of the war, and when the wind of resistance first blew, in the company of a nameless young man, elf, and knight, she scaled the towering spire and challenged the eccentric lord." [18] The young man, elf, and knight being respectively the young bard, Barbatos, and Gunnhildr. We do not know if Andrius helped as well, as he despised all humans.
    • Barbatos becomes the new Anemo Archon after Decarabian is defeated. [21]
      • "With the crumbling of an ancient seat of divinity, a new god was born. The Anemo Archon Barbatos felt power flowing at his fingertips." [19]
      • "The Wolf King, believing itself to despise humans, thought itself unable to envision a happy life for humanity, making it unworthy of becoming the Lord of the Winds of the world. Therefore, it chose to disappear. Yet, in truth, it gazed on the ones the world abandoned ever so gently." [33] Andrius could have become the Anemo Archon instead of Barbatos.
        • "Andrius' wolf pack is its blessed honor guard, and even the milk teeth of a wolf's cub possess great potential. In the past, the gods had the responsibility to love all people, which made Andrius quite the oddball for only adopting abandoned babies and accepting wanderers." [34] "Andrius found humans to be a disappointment, but believed babies to be innocent. If both the wolf pack and the adopted children chose each other, then they become a Lupical, a fated family." [35] These could be the reasons why Andrius couldn't believe itself to become an Archon, since he would have had the responsibility to love all people, which he couldn't.
        • Andrius dies and becomes a being without a physical body comprised of ice and wind. [36] Before dying he realizes that the ice and snow were only destroying life, not nurturing it. [37]
      • "His first use of this power was to reconstitute himself in the likeness of that young lad.
        For only if he wore human shape could he play the lyre that the lad so loved."
        [19] Barbatos takes the form of the boy to honor him and continue to play his lyre. [38]
      • "Plucking its strings, he scattered the ice and snow and split the mountains with a divine wind." [19] Barbatos shapes the land of Mondstadt to make it prosperous for his people.
      • At some point, Barbatos becomes friends with a certain God of Time. [39]
        • "On the cliff facing the eastern sea, the ancestors worshiped the masters of Time and Anemo together.
          The two are intimately related, as expressed in the saying, "Anemo brings stories while Time nurtures them.""
          • "Long ago, a war waged between the Lord of Storm and the Great Wolf King of the North. Mondstadt was engulfed in blizzards, and the snow stung like sand.
            A group who could bear the cold no longer built a shrine high on a clifftop in the east. There, they prayed for divine mercy and protection."
            [41] A group of people tries to appease to some god, probably that of time.
          • "The wind blows for a moment, but the ravages of time are constant, unrelenting, and irreversible.
            A god of the winds may move between the pages of a book, but in the end, the merciless god of time will eat away at them until not a single legible word remains."
          • "Yet, time's assault and that of the wind often take their toll the same upon the heart.
            Perhaps that is why later generations presumed the shrine to have always been to the wind, and the wind alone."
            [41] The people forgot that the shrine was to both gods, not only to the wind one.
      • "Barbatos, unwilling to become a tyrant, had departed." [19] Since Barbatos didn't want to become a tyrant, leaves.
    • "This sword once belonged to the Imunlaukr clan, a clan of brave and gifted warriors who fought hard and died young.
      In sacrificial ceremonies, they would enact duels between brave warriors stained black with blood."
      [42] There was a clan called Imunlaukr that loved to fight.
      • "In the eyes of the Imunlaukr clan, combat existed not for protection, for glory, or for gaining territory.
        Rather, it was for the amusement of the gods, high up in the heavens, for whom little else could serve to entertain."
      • "And yet, as the snow slowly melted and Mondstadt began to take shape, gradually they realized: They had found something to fight for at last." [42] It seems that the Imunlaukr joined the Mondstadt people.
    • "This was an age where people watched their gods clash in bitter battles before their very eyes. Rex Lapis would not establish the currency of the seven nations and cast the first Mora coins for quite some time. So the tribes traded using pieces of ore they would chance across from time to time, with idols made in the likeness of the Geo Lord to ensure price stability." [31] Mora didn't exist yet during the Archon War so people would barter instead.
    • "It later came to pass that the gods each strove for dominance, which brought catastrophe upon the land. Though the adepti fought to protect the Guili Plains, they could not stop the tide of war, which ravaged the plains and took the life of its ruler, Guizhong." [11] Rex Lapis and Guizhong fought other gods, but Guizhong died.
      • "Thereupon, the Lord of Rock Rex Lapis took his people south of Mt. Tianheng. Thus the people departed from the Guili Plains for good, never to return, and it was left to become a wilderness." [11] Rex Lapis abandons the Guili Plains.
    • "The people of Liyue turned to commerce and artisanship for their livelihood, and prospered once more. Those who prospered above the rest joined together, calling themselves the Qixing. Thus was formed the framework around which Liyue Harbor developed. Under the jurisdiction of the Qixing were all the known trades, no business of Liyue took place inside or outside the nation that was not known unto them. The Millelith also took orders from the Qixing, supporting the masses at home and suppressing the monsters at the border. Thus became the nature of Liyue’s governance under Rex Lapis." [11] Liyue Harbor as we know it is built.
    • The Salt God gets killed by one of her followers, and her remains can be found somewhere in Sal Terrae. [29]
      • "The gentlest of the gods fell not in battle at the hand of the other gods. She fell at the hand of one of her own people, the people she had loved so dearly."
        "He was the first king of the people, and also the last. He had once loved the God of Salt just as the rest did, but as a mere mortal, he ultimately could not fathom the self-sacrificial love the god embodied. He sought after military might, in the hope that the city might be able to hold its own in defense and attack. And so, to demonstrate that gentleness was a virtue unfit for the times, he took a sword and ended the life of the lone, defenseless god. No sooner had she met her demise than the temple itself collapsed, and the people's city crumbled like salt into the earth."
        "Rumors say that the Salt God's body can still be found somewhere in the depths of the ruins. Though her body has turned to salt, it still maintains her posture from the moment she was struck by the king's sword." [43]
      • "This is salt formed from the residue of an ancient archon's tears—"
        "Actually, I do not want for money. But let me see... what's this — it looks like salt? It's about time I went to Sal Terrae to pay my respects again. If it's okay with you, this is all I need in return for the gem." The archon in the story is probably a reference to the Goddess of Salt.
    • "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." [44] The ruins in the Lisha region (Qingxu Pool, Lingju Pass, Dunyu Ruins) predate even the Geo Archon's rule over Liyue.
      • "What she 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." [44] According to Soraya, the ruins were left behind by an evil god and its people.
    • Stone beasts seem to have fought alongside Rex Lapis during the Archon War. [45]
      • After the war ended, Rex Lapis made them into "everlasting stone" as per their request.
    • "The once-sane berserker's homeland fell victim to the raging war between gods and mortals." [46] The Plume of Death of Berserker Artifact Set seems to refer to a war between gods and mortals, probably referring to the Archon War.
  •  ? BP - Rex Lapis summons a black meteor beyond Liyue's Sea of Clouds, said to have fallen to vanquish a monster. [47] [48]
    • "An elder said that thousands of years ago, Morax defeated the sea serpent and brought peace back to Liyue. After Chi died, its body turned to stone, its blood became water, and its scales are now the terraced fields. The monster's nest became what we now call Mt. Qingce." [49]
      • "Legend has it that the word "Qingce" originated from the name of an ancient monster "Chi." "Chi," of course, is what we call it now in the contemporary language. But in ancient times, the people of Liyue pronounced it as "Qingce.""
    • "Rumors of sea monsters are commonplace in Liyue, since the other-shore is an unknown region that lies outside of Teyvat." [50] This other-shore might be Khaenri'ah.
  •  ? BP - "The stone pillars that tower amid the Guyun Stone Forest were once the stone lances Morax used to defeat his enemies. As time passed, the body of these gods penetrated into the pillars, granting them divinity. The pillars would sometimes shed crumbs of hatred and curses." [51] Rex Lapis threw stone lances to defeat other gods. The pillars themselves became divine, but with hatred and curses within as well.
    • "Legend has it that the Geo Archon once carved a giant polearm out of the rocky land. He plunged it deep into the ocean, riding it straight through the body of the demon that wrought chaos upon his domain. Over the years, the wind gradually eroded the stone polearm into the form we see today." [52]
    • "The sheer beauty of this place makes it hard to imagine that it was once the site of a bloody battle between the Geo Archon and the sea monster." [52]
      • "The crabs on the beach were big and meaty. Maybe it's because the area has been nourished by the remains of a magical beast for millennia?" [52]
    • "The stone lance has a glimmering core formed by the power of the defeated gods. Their hatred is not directed at Morax, for they have lost themselves a long time ago and are incapable of holding personal grudges." [53] It seems that those defeated gods have lost their minds and purpose.
    • "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. They may now lie deep within stone and sea, but they will not go quietly into the night." [54] It seems that the gods had their own ideas on how to help humanity.
    • The hatred and regret of the fallen gods that rest in Guyun Stone Forest rise out of the soil and take the form of demons. Rex Lapis tasks the 5 Yaksha to defeat them. [48]
      • Only Alatus came back from the battle. Bosacius is missing, and later revealed to have left by choice. The other 3 supposedly died. [55] [48]
      • "To the informed, Guyun Stone Forest is not some miraculous sight on the sea to behold, but the cemetery of the former gods of Liyue. Hatred and filth have periodically raised up from it, but all have been subdued by a demon-conquering young man." [56] The demon-conquering young man might be Xiao.
  •  ? BP - "Many defeated gods refused to live under the new order of The Seven, so they fled to remote islands and became evil gods." [57] Several gods ran away from Teyvat.
  •  ? BP - Dvalin is born in Gaotian. [58]
    • "People panicked, for the mighty elemental dragons and the great archons that reigned over the earth had never seen eye to eye." It seems that elemental dragons and archons are usually not on good terms.
    • "The tradition of worshipping the Four winds was gradually formed in Mondstadt. However, Dvalin, the ancient Wind Dragon, predated them all." [59] Dvalin was the first of the Four Winds to be known by Barbatos.
  •  ? BP - "Knight of Borealis' journey ended at the city of Barbatos. Wandering souls attract each other, boundless freedom begets only anxiety.
    Upon entering the city, the Knight of Boreas' companion bade him farewell in silence. For the free-spirited Wolf resented the stone walls and lamplight, and yearned for the open wilds."
    [60] At one point in time, a certain Knight of Borealis, or Boreas, arrives at Mondstadt together with a wolf companion.
    • "The Knight of Boreas rode again to hunt. The Wolf followed his went into battle. Still one were they, the Wolf and the Knight." [60] They fight together to protect the land.
    • "Though one they were, death comes for beasts sooner than men. Laying down his sword as a gravestone, the Knight of Boreas buried the Wolf in the remote countryside. The Knight of Boreal then left the city behind, living instead the wandering life of a lone wolf.
      Yet the eternal wolf spirit remained here. Watching over the land the Knight once protected."
      [60] The wolf dies and is buried. Then the Knight of Borealis leaves Mondstadt.

The Aristocracy

  • 2000 years BP - "After 1,600 years of history, Mondstadt's "freedom" had sunk to a heretofore unseen low. [...] But he had never imagined that those to whome he had gifted freedom would make for themselves a tyrant.
    The aristocracy ruled Mondstadt with a cruel hand, bringing slaves into this land and ignoring the cries of the oppressed."
    [19] The Aristocratic Period begins. [15]
    • The royals were tyrants that used the poor people for their own desires. [61]
      • "This bow was once the property of the proud Lawrence clan. In the far-flung past, they used it to reenact their clan's brave victory over the frozen wilderness.
        But this role became corrupted. Gradually, their view of themselves shifted from conquerors, to overlords, to kings. Gradually, they strayed onto the path of depravity, and lost the affection of Mondstadt's winds."
    • Ragnvindr the Dawn Knight was a Starlit Knight during this period. [63]
      • This might be the actual ancestor of Diluc, as they both have the same last name and a similar title (Diluc, the Dark Side of Dawn).
    • Although the Gunnhildr were a prominent clan within the Aristocracy, they didn't become evil like the Lawrence clan. [15]
    • It seems that during this period there were two knights, Rostam the Wolf Pup and Arundolyn the Lion of Light.
      • The Brave Heart Artifact Set talks about their friendship. [64]
      • "Close companions growing up, Arundolyn was from a long line of knights while Rostam was born to a peasant family.
        Their childhood friendship was forged from a shared dream of heroism. As young men they became fellow knights, as mature adults, one became Grand Master and the other his assistant."
      • "When the young Arundolyn swung his replica greatsword — modeled off the great Ravenwood, Knight of Boreas' own greatsword — imagining that he was cutting the old nobles of Mondstadt down, he never envisaged he would become the renowned "Lion of Light." Nor did he envisage that his young rival Rostam, who later died after serving the people of Mondstadt for 23 years, would one day become his most trusted right-hand man." [66] It seems that Arundolyn's greatsword was itself modeled off the greatsword of the Knight of Boreas. Also, Rostam and Arundolyn were rivals before becoming friends, and then Rostam died after serving Mondstadt as a knight for 23 years.
    • The Wanderer's Troupe, also called the Swordman's Troupe, is founded. [67]
      • "For flutes they had swords, for harps they had bows, and their song was an anthem of rebellion." [67] They used their instruments both for playing and for fighting.
        • "The sword once made the sound of a flute when wielded by one with the requisite skill. The pitch and tone were determined by the swinging angle." [68]
      • The Widsith is a "notebook that was shared among the members of the Wanderer's Troupe. It contains musical scores and travel journals. [...] The notebook records the experiences of the Troupe, the lands they roamed and the worlds they witnessed." [67] "The members then turned the notes into words and recorded their journey in a book.
        This book, The Widsith as they called it, was still held tightly in the conductor’s hands even after his death."
        . [69]
        • They traveled through the desert and went to Mare Jivari. [69]
          • The desert is probably Sumeru and Mare Jivari is probably in that region.
      • "At first, it was just a chance meeting with the conductor - but for the invisible strings of fate.
        First came the girl who used a flute as a sword, and then that fellow Kreuzlied - one by one, the traveler met them all.
        In the joyous tavern, the lyrist introduced a maiden he had met by chance to his comrades amidst the singing and dancing."
        They meet a Sojourner known as the "Wandering Lyrist" who tells them about a maiden he met who is about to be sacrificed for a festival. [70]
        • "The story is that he fell in love with a humble Mondstadt woman, but she was then selected for the miserable fate of Ludi Harpastum princess." [71]
        • "The harpist was from the magnificent and enchanting land of Fontaine. He had left to travel the world in search of his true destiny. It is said that all the ladies of the Court of Fontaine wailed with grief when they heard the tragic news that he had left without saying goodbye." The Sojourner was from Fontaine.
        • "Among the members of the Wanderer's Troupe was a valiant sword-wielding dancer." [68]
        • "One by the name of Kreuzlied traveled with the Wanderer's Troupe. Once a member of the ruling Lawrence clan, now a traitor and outcast." [72]
      • "Their final act was an attempt to storm the city and impose the death sentence upon its tyrannical rulers.
        The Swordsman's Troupe had gone, and with it the memory of their rebellion.
        But the spirit of resistance they embodied will always flow in Mondstadters' veins."
        [67] "For his comrades, for his best friend, for the tables around which none would again share wine.
        For freedom, for life, and for revenge against the evil that had taken her smile.
        Thus resolved, the traveler plucked his last string, and fired his final arrow."
        [69] "After the uprising failed, the Wanderer's Troupe disbanded and its members fled. The harpist stayed till the end, deftly plucking the instrument's strings and raining down a torrent of arrows to protect his comrades. He played till he exhausted the repertoire, and his arrows." [71] They all die trying to overthrow the Aristocracy.
        • "It is claimed that he had no regrets about dying anonymously in a foreign land. The only thing he regretted was finally discovering true love, only to never have the chance to sing another love song." [71]
        • "After the Troupe's attempt to tear down the ruling class failed, she was enslaved as a gladiator." [68] The sword-wielding dancer is enslaved.
        • "Though all her hope and all her companions were lost, still she fought bravely.
          Her sword sang with the radiance of the morn's light, and she was dubbed the "Dawnlight Swordswoman.""
          [68] She becomes the Dawnlight Swordswoman.
          • "In his youth, the Dawn Knight Ragnvindr was in the retinue of a knight.
            He went with his master to watch a gladiator match, and was moved by the Dawnlight Swordswoman's splendid finale.
            He named himself the Dawn Knight in her honor, and knew in his heart what he must do next."
            [68] Ragnvindr meets the Dawnlight Swordswoman of the Wanderer's Troupe, and also sees her final battle before she died. [73]
        • "It was not made public what punishment Kreuzlied met with after the failed uprising. This in itself is a testament to his privileged origins." [72]
          • "Legend says that after being dismissed from office, his desire to continue the legacy of his fellow rebels led him to establish a secret society aimed at bringing down the Aristocracy.
            It is also said that he gave his full assistance to the enslaved gladiator when she revolted."
            [72] Kreuzlied might have helped Vennessa.
          • "Further in the past, the popular rumor was that Kreuzlied's secret society was working constantly in the background,
            Helping the Knights of Favonius keep Mondstadt safe though deeds that no knight should ever be party to."
          • "It was even said that the Wolf Pup Rostam ran this organization in secret, behind the Grand Master's back." [72]
            • "There once was a bright white knight, who longed ever for the path of justice.
              Clad in burnished armor, a mirror-sheen sword hung from his hip.
              Wherever there was injustice, man-eating beast, or fire in the distance,
              The Knight would ride up in haste to cut, slash, and pierce.
              Following the teachings of the Wolf Pup, who taught him chivalry, justice and swordsmanship,
              He cut, slashed and pierced them from head to toe...
              Till justice had run its course, and the monster moved no more."
  •  ? BP - At some point, Ursa the Drake starts terrorizing Mondstadt. [75]

Mondstadt Reborn

  • 1000 years BP - "Thus the Anemo Archon returned after these 1,600 years to what was once the City of Freedom. He heard the cry of the slave girl Vennessa, and together with her raised a rebellion that overthrew the aristocracy." [19] Venti returns after the cries of Vennessa.
    • But it seems that Venti actually returns to attend Ludi Harpastum. [75] [76]
    • Vennessa is a slave and gladiator that comes from the southern plains with her clan. [61] [77]
      • "Enslaved was the exiled foreign fighter in the land of the wind." [78]
      • Vennessa and her clan are called "Children of Murata" by Barbatos. [75]
        • "Vennessa was not truly bound by her chains. If she had so wished, no ordinary physical constraints forged in Mondstadt could have held her, for the land there yielded no ore of exceptional quality, nor did it possess the divine flame of her ancestral home. She was only bound by her responsibility to take care of her tribespeople." [79] The "divine flame of her ancestral home" might refer to her relation to the Children of Murata.
      • The Gladiator's Finale Artifact Set talks about a champion gladiator and slave who used to fight in the arena, first for freedom, then for the joy of his master, all this before being killed by someone who seems to be Vennessa at a young age. [80]
        • Deathmatch is the name of the weapon used by the same gladiator. [81]
        • Eberhart was the master of the gladiator. [81]
    • Vennessa, with the help of Venti, sends away Ursa and frees Mondstadt from tyrannical rulers once again. [75] [82]
      • "A secret treaty was found, a betrayal of the city—the aristocrats had forsaken the wind, and sold everything in Mondstadt to the Geo Archon of the neighboring land.
        At the treaty's end was carved an insignia inimitable by all save the deity so named: Rex Lapis.
        How the soldiers that had once oppressed the slaves shuddered when they saw that they too would become slaves in a foreign land.
        The news, and the conflict, spread like wildfire, consuming the aristocracy. It was only many years later that historians would discover that this treaty was fake."
        [19] It seems that a fake treaty made as a joke by Barbatos to Rex Lapis was taken as true by the people of Mondstadt and thought that the aristocrats were behind it, so they riled up and brought them down.
    • The Knights of Favonius is established by Vennessa to prevent any aristocrats from taking over again and gains the title of Dandelion Knight. [75]
      • "For she overthrew the barbaric nobles and established a chivalric order and the Church." [83] She also "established" the Church, although it was already there since the beginning but restricted.
        • "When Mondstadt was born anew, and the Church finally unshackled,
          The scriptures of the winds could bear no longer being confined to a shelf,
          And so the book took flight, left the Church's treasury and was gone.
          Like the winds of Mondstadt, and like the people of Mondstadt,
          It belonged to freedom and the winds."
      • "When the Knights of Favonius were founded, the Dawn Knight Ragnvindr turned the aristocrats' indoor baths into a library. In time, countless contributions from bards, scholars and travelers turned the library into the largest collection of literature in the northern half of the continent." [85]
    • The evil aristocrats are exiled. [15]
    • The Four Winds are established. [76]
      • Andrius officially becomes the Wolf of the North.
      • Dvalin officially becomes the Dragon of the East.
      • The holder of the Dandelion Knight title becomes the Lion of the South.
      • Vennessa ascends to Celestia and becomes the Falcon of the West, leaving no Dandelion Knight currently in position.
        • "Blessed was she to eventually walk with the gods." [83]
        • "The great tree at Windrise is where the first Dandelion Knight came to the end of her journey. She was Vennessa, the founder of the Knights of Favonius and the restorer of Mondstadt. She bade farewell to the city she had vowed to protect, leaving behind her legend and a single sapling." [86] "There is a towering oak tree at the center of Windrise, said to have sprouted when Vennessa ascended to the heavens a millennium ago." [19] Before ascending, Vennessa leaves a sapling of the now great tree at Windrise.
          • "The great tree at Windrise marked the end of the first Liontooth Knight's journey." [86]
        • Although only those with a Vision can ascend to Celestia, Vennessa was able to without one, unless she received a Vision from the Anemo Archon the moment she fought against Ursa.
          • "Celestia is the realm of the gods, and the wielders of Visions walk the earth below. When they depart from this world, the chosen will ascend." [87]
    • Venti returns to his slumber.
    • "The Knights of Favonius once had a formidable team of archer scouts known as the Outriders.
      The team was founded by a mercenary leader from Liyue, who passed on his lifetime's worth of knowledge to the Outriders."
      [88] "Amber's grandpa was once the leader of a mercenary group. He came from Liyue Harbor and was tasked with protecting merchant caravans as they traversed Teyvat. One day, on a routine escort job, the caravan fell prey to a savage monster attack; he was the only survivor, saved by a doctor from the Knights of Favonius.
      Too ashamed to return home and anxious to repay the debt, Amber's grandpa joined the Knights of Favonius. Before long, he highhandedly founded the Outriders, trained each of them personally, and began leading them on missions. It also wasn't long before he found love in the foreign land of Mondstadt and founded a family."
      [89] The Outriders are founded by Amber's grandfather, a mercenary leader from Liyue.
      • "This lasted until the first of the Outriders, for reasons unknown to the Knights, ultimately left the order.
        From that day, the Outrider team was a shell of its former self."
        [88] "Something happened one day, four years ago, that profoundly changed Amber.
        That day, her grandpa left his coat of arms and sword in his office and simply disappeared, leaving no note and telling no-one he was leaving."
        [89] Amber's grandfather suddenly disappears without notice.
  •  ? BP - The Great Fire of Fall Equinox happens and the library in Mondstadt burned down.
    • "There is a large sturdy door made of poplar wood in the library basement. It is said the door predates the founding of the library and stood firm against the smoke and flames.
      The truth is this door stood there long before the Knights of Favonius was ever founded."
  •  ? BP - There's a period of time (hundreds of years?) where the Wolf King wasn't living yet in Wolvendom. [90]
  • 500 years BP - "However, 500 years ago, the collapse of an ancient civilization turned the universe upside down..." [91] An ancient civilization collapsed.

The Eclipse

  • 100~ years BP - In the Kingdom of Khaenri’ah, the Eclipse Dynasty falls and disaster spreads across the land. [58]
    • "A great sinner created endless monsters with alien, dark blood flowing through their veins. They rampaged across the land, destroying all in their paths. Their lives were mutations, caused by powers beyond this world." [92]
      • "The alchemist known as Gold was corrupted by his own greed and ambition, and created an army of shadowy monsters with his uncanny powers." [58] The great sinner is probably this alchemist Gold.
    • "Approximately one hundred years ago, the land was in chaos. Darkness spread, contaminating everything it touched. Barbarians and foul creatures roamed the lands, forcing people to dwell within the city walls." [59]
    • "The black serpentine dragon Durin that attacked Mondstadt was such a mutation." [92] "Durin, a black serpentine dragon, rose from the sea to cast its shadow over Mondstadt." [58] "During the most difficult of times, Durin, the corrupted dragon of immeasurable power, began attacking Mondstadt." [59] "Mondstadt was once threatened by the shadow dragon Durin. Its jealousy for Mondstadt's prosperity begot evil, poisoning the land. In those dark days, Mondstadt was surrounded by monsters and barren lands." [93] "In olden times, the shadow dragon Durin, covetous of the peace Mondstadt enjoyed, came forth to defile the land. Durin's black wings blotted out the sky, releasing clouds of toxic fumes, So much so that even the thousand winds could not hold their pestilence rot at bay, And thus fell black rain from the skies, the din of their downpour drowning the cries and groans of the people." [94] Durin is born and attacks Mondstadt.
    • "But it was at this very moment that there was no-one to inherit the title of Liontooth Knight, thus, the Knights of Favonius could not fly their falcon flag." [58] "It was an especially difficult time for Mondstadt. The Liontooth Knight was without a suitable heir, and the Knights of Favonius had lost many of its brave men and women during the bitter wars" [59]
    • "Hearing the people's cry for help, the Anemo Archon descended and awoke Dvalin. Dvalin rode the wind and soared up to the sky, fighting for all life. Blessed by the Anemo Archon, Dvalin fought the shadow dragon. Clouds broke, and the sky burned red as if the end of days was upon Mondstadt. Eventually, Dvalin's blessed fangs pierced through the throat of Durin. Durin fell, but Dvalin was poisoned by Durin's tainted blood." [93] "The Anemo Archon was awakened by the sound of their agony, and his heart was pierced by their despair. So he summoned Dvalin to his side, and shrouding themselves in a storm, they pierced through the poisoned skies." [94] Dvalin is called upon by Barbatos and defeats Durin, but ingests Durin's poisonous blood. [58]
      • "As it had once torn through the flesh of the shadow dragon Durin, it used to contain his vicious poison." [95]
      • "The result was clear — Durin's remains still lie atop the snowy peaks to the south of Mondstadt — but the story of how the battle ended was lost in time. It is said that Dvalin ripped out Durin's throat, and together they fell from the sky." [59] "At last the wind dragon's razor fangs pierced his foe's throat, and his great claws tore out its corrupted heart. The sinners' creation, filled with eternal regret, fell from the spotless skies and fell to ruin upon a snow peak." [94] Durin's remains are on Dragonspine.
    • "Unable to bear the pain, Dvalin fell unconscious. Even the most learned bards knew not where he slumbered." [93] "That fierce battle in the distant skies had thus defended the people of the Anemo Archon. But at the moment of his triumph, the venomous ichor of his foe had flowed between his teeth and into his guts.
      The pain withered bone and marrow, and in his agony the great wind dragon curled up in the depths of an ancient ruin."
      [94] Dvalin goes into a deep slumber. [58]
    • "The practices of the Eclipse tribe are the most occult of any in Mondstadt. They concern themselves neither with brains nor brawn, but with occult power. Distinct from the elemental powers worshipped by their peers, the object of their worship is a crude symbol that appears to represent an eclipsed sun. Their shamans are more powerful than those of the other tribes." [96] A hilichurl tribe called the Eclipse tribe seems to be related to Khaenri'ah.
      • "Paimon: The hilichurls of the Eclipse tribe are really mysterious.
        Paimon: All the hilichurls of that tribe can draw an eclipse symbol.
        Paimon: But rumor has it that only the Dada Samachurl of the Eclipse tribe knows why the Eclipse symbol is so revered within their tribe.
        (Traveler): An Eclipse symbol..."
        [97] The Traveler seems to know something about the Eclipse symbol.
  •  ? BP - "A boy and a girl stood amidst the tumult, under an unfamiliar sky. You were a pair of traveling twins, passing through countless worlds during your journey. Descending upon a continent named Teyvat, you hoped that you would be able to enjoy your time here." The Traveler and their Sibling arrive to Teyvat.
    • "But as you awoke among the falling stars, you saw the world in turmoil, a cataclysm raging across the land..." [87] This cataclysm could either be the destruction of Khaenri'ha or the Archon War.
    • "You sought to leave this place and move on to the next world, but then an Unknown God stood before you, barring the way. This deity was spotless, floating over a world of chaos." [87] The twins fight the Unknown God.
  •  ? BP - "Jean's father on the other hand is Simon Page, an adventurer famed throughout the contintent. When he came to Mondtstadt, he dusted off his past self and started anew with the Church of Favonius, and ascended to high office within it, becoming known as the Cardinal of Daybreak." [86] Simon Page, Jean's father, comes to Mondstadt, enters the Church of Favonius, and later becomes the Cardinal of Daybreak.
    • "This prideful blood comes from Jean's mother, Frederica." [86] Frederica is Jean's mother, and during that period is together with Simon Page and they have Jean and Barbara as daughters.
    • "The two lovers eventually parted ways. Young Jean, holding her mother's hand, would watch the silhouettes her father and her sister, Barbara, grow ever more distant." [86] Simon Page and Frederica leave each other.
      • "Later, Barbara would follow in her father's footsteps and join the Church of Favonius, becoming a deaconess much beloved by the people." [86] Barbara follows her father's footsteps and joins the Church.

    [98] Kaeya and his father come to Mondstadt from Khaenri'ah as agents on a mission, and his father leaves him there. Crepus, Diluc's father, then takes him in and adopts him.
    • "In truth, he was an agent of Khaenri’ah, placed in Mondstadt to serve their interests. His father had abandoned him in this strange and unknown land to fulfill his mission, and it was Master Crepus and the city of Mondstadt that had welcomed him with open arms when they found him."
  • 10 years BP - "Jean sometimes thinks that inspiration for this schedule may have been the training program her mother drew up for her ten years ago." [86] Frederica, Jean's mother, prepares the training program for Jean to become a knight.

    • "It was raining heavily in Mondstadt on the night that Kaeya Alberich received his Vision." [98] Kaeya receives his Vision on the day Crepus dies.
      • "Bitterly cold and brittle elemental energy burst forth from the tip of his sword to meet Diluc's searing flames head-on. The clash of crimson fire and azure ice created a sudden swirl of wind that stunned them both. This was the grim moment at which Kaeya's Vision appeared." [98]
        • "Consumed by guilt, Kaeya knocked on Diluc's door. As the rain poured down, the shroud of secrecy was washed away, all lies were revealed. Kaeya had finally come clean.
          He had anticipated Diluc's anger.
          The brothers drew their blades, this time pointing them at each other."
          [98] At this same moment, Kaeya tells Diluc all the truth about his past and the reason he's there.
    • "For on that day, a horrific monster attacked the transport fleet he and his father were traveling with. [...] His Father, who had denied admittance into the Knights and who was shunned by the gods, defeated the monster with an unknown evil power—before that same power backfired, mortally wounding Crepus himself. Crepus died shortly after in his son's arms." [99] "Earlier that day, Crepus Ragnvindir had wielded the power of a Delusion — only to become its victim when it backfired. To set his father free from the unbearable agony, Diluc Ragnvindir took his life." [98] Crepus uses a Delusion to defeat Ursa the Drake, but the Delusion backfries and almost kills him, leaving him in pain. Diluc takes his life to set his father free.
      • A strange flying device attaches to the carriage where Diluc and Crepus are. [101]

Diluc traveled all across the seven nations of Teyvat in search of the truth." [99] Diluc travels Teyvat in search of the truth about his father's death.
    • "All clues pointed toward a behemoth of an organization: The Fatui. He learned that they made counterfeit Visions in secret, calling them "Delusions." A Delusion could amplify the power of its bearer to its extreme, but also carried the risk of backfiring. That was what had caused his father's death." [99] Diluc finds out that it was the Fatui behind his father's death. They used a counterfeit version of Visions called "Delusions" that are powerful but dangerous to use.
    • "The Fatui's rulers, The Eleven, monitored Diluc's progress from the shadows. The prowess with which he laid waste to numerous Fatui strongholds caught their attention, and forced them to take action. Diluc narrowly escaped death at the hands of the Eleven thanks to a third-party observer from the north, who was part of a vast underground intelligence network." [99] The Harbingers almost kill Diluc, but he is saved by an unknown observer and its underground intelligence network.

      • "Yet there was something then that you did not see — for as the dragon fell to the Abyss, a certain figure had been reflected in its eyes...
        The one who rules the Abyss.
        He had once traveled with you, and you had once crossed many worlds together."
