UI Quest.png Quest Description

The god took away your only kin, and you were sealed and cast into a deep slumber. Upon your awakening, you wandered alone for a time until you met a strange companion named Paimon, thus beginning your journey through the continent of Teyvat...
(The game begins with the opening cinematic; the Traveler and their sibling step onto a structure in the sky.)
Paimon: So... what you're trying to say is that you fell here... from another world?
Paimon: But when you wanted to leave, and go on to the next world, your path was blocked by some unknown god?
(The Unknown God appears, blocking their path.)
Unknown God: Outlanders, your journey ends here!
Lumine: Who're you!?
Unknown God: The sustainer of heavenly principles. The arrogation of mankind ends now.
(The twins battle with the Unknown God, but it is futile. The Traveler's sibling is engulfed by a swarm of red-and-black cubes and condensed into a single cube in the god's hand.)
(Traveler): (Lumine!/Aether!)
(The Traveler tries to take back their sibling, only to be engulfed themselves.)
(Traveler): Wait! Don't go! Give my (sister/brother) back!

(Traveler): And just like that, the god took away my (sister/brother).
(Traveler): Some kind of seal was cast upon me, and I lost my power. (So while we used to travel from world to world, we are now trapped here./So whilst we used to cross world after world, we are now trapped here.)
(Traveler): How many years ago was it? I don't know...
(Traveler): But I intend to find out.
(Traveler): (When I woke, I was all alone – until I met you two months ago.../After I awoke, I was all alone — right up until I met you two months ago.)
Paimon: Yeah, Paimon really owes you for that. Otherwise Paimon likely would have drowned...
Paimon: So, Paimon will do her best to be a great guide!
Paimon: We should head off. Let's get going!
(Upon approaching the cliff)
Paimon: The path ends here – guess we'll just have to climb.
Paimon: Climbing depletes stamina, and depleted stamina takes time to recover!
Paimon: Okay, let's take the route we planned!
Paimon: We're off to... a Statue of The Seven!
Paimon: Which of The Seven are you looking for exactly?
