The Traveler is the playable protagonist of Genshin Impact. At the beginning of the game, both genders are twin siblings from another world, traveling throughout the universe, until an Unknown God ambushed, captured one of them, and sealed their ways of travel, leaving them stranded on Teyvat. They are accompanied by a travel companion named Paimon throughout their journey.

Whichever gender you choose, the name of the other sibling will be revealed:

  • The male is named Aether in English, (空, Kōng) in both the Chinese and Japanese versions using respective pronunciations. "空" is pronounced "Sora" in Japanese
  • The female is named Lumine in English, Yíng (荧) in Chinese, and Hotaru (蛍) in Japanese - using a different character rather than a unified one.

Profile

Introduction

The Sustainer is dying, the Creator has yet to return. But the world won't burn again, because you will ascend to the seat of 「God」.

In-game character profile text

Personality

A traveler from another world who had their only kin taken away, forcing them to embark on a journey to find The Seven.

In-game character attributes text

The traveler’s personality is determined primarily by the player theirself. Their personality can range from stoic and humble to confident and short-tempered.

Appearance

Both siblings have bright blond hair, slim body builds, golden-yellow eyes, and fair skin. Skin is of a light tan when compared to the NPCs of Mondstadt. They also wield blue broadswords in hand. Both siblings adorn a contrasting color palette—the brother with darker clothes and the sister wearing lighter clothes. The two are not identical and have differentiations in their natural features. The brother also has lightly-defined pecks which does not appear in his in-game model.

Aether wears a brown breastplate vest baring his midriff along with a white scarf- cape with golden embroidery. He wears brown pants, dark gloves, and black boots. His hair is medium cut with a long braided ponytail.

Lumine wears a white sleeveless dress with tail capes and bracers covering her thumbs, with white stockings plus boots. Her hair is medium cut with short straight twin tails.

The Travelers have glowing pieces in their outfit that change based on which element they are currently attuned to. In the beginning cutscene with the Unknown God, both of the siblings will have glowing white clothing. Later, after the fight with the Unknown God, the player's Traveler will lose their white light and remain black until they interact with the first Statue of the Seven they come across, lighting up again, but this time becoming teal, as they are borrowing the power of Barbatos. This lighting scheme would continue based on which element the sibling is currently borrowing, as visiting a Statue of the Seven in Liyue will allow the player to borrow the power of Geo from Rex Lapis, and start to glow yellow.

History

After spending numerous months stranded in Teyvat, the Traveler fished out Paimon from a lake. Paimon suggests they get in contact with The Seven, in order to help the traveler look for their lost sibling, at the start of the game.

Combat Info

The Traveler starts the game with only one talent, Past Memories, this for their normal/charged Attacks. Shortly afterward they will unlock their Anemo talents and constellations by resonating with the first Statue of The Seven in Mondstadt, the Traveler can resonate with any other Statue of The Seven they find and change their element to match the statue's element. See Teyvat for each region's element.
