Who are the Eleven Fatui Harbingers in Genshin Impact?

It's time to meet the group pulling the strings behind the scenes.

Within the dastardly Fatui organization, there exists a a fearsome military faction devoted to the Cryo Archon—The Eleven Fatui Harbingers. These Eleven agents are exceptionally powerful beings, wielding Vision-like Delusions or otherworldly abilities to enforce their authority and command legions of Fatui members. The Harbingers have been the main antagonists in the story of Genshin so far, enacting plans that threatened the safety of Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma on the behalf of their queen, the Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya.

The Fatui Harbingers answer directly to the Cryo Archon herself and act as the physical embodiments of her will, never hesitating to fulfill her requests. Despite being so influential, though, only nine out of the eleven Harbingers have been referenced so far in the game, and most of their backgrounds have been wrapped in mystery. So who are the Fatui Harbingers in Genshin Impact?

Note: Minor Genshin Impact spoilers for each character follow.

The Fatui Harbingers

  • Alias: The Fool
  • Vision Element: N/A
  • Delusion Element: N/A
  • Weapon: N/A

Pierro, The Fool, is the first of the Fatui Harbingers and their leader, along with being second-in-command to the Cryo Archon. He is also the very first member of the Fatui organization in general, and is responsible for recruiting many of the other Harbingers to the Tsaritsa's cause. Alongside recruitment, Pierro appears to be in charge of handing out Delusions to members of the Fatui, with Signora and Tartaglia both receiving their Delusions from him.

Most of Pierro's past is still a mystery at this point, but the Mocking Mask artifact tells players a bit about him—Pierro is a sage from an unknown country where he failed to gain favor with the King, leading to him being unable to stop the other sages from bringing destruction to the country. These events caused him to become disillusioned and embittered with the Divine, so he decided to join the Tsaritsa in her mission against Celestia.

  • Vision Element: N/A
  • Delusion Element: N/A
  • Weapon: N/A

The fifth member of the Fatui Harbingers is Pulcinella, also known as The Rooster. Very little is known about this Harbinger, but he is described as having a methodical and calculating personality. He appears to have incredible foresight, as Pulcinella is the one who noticed Tartaglia's unique abilities and combat potential at the age of 14, inviting him to join the Fatui and satisfy his appetite for battle.

Scaramouche

  • Alias: The Balladeer
  • Artificial Archon Element: Electro
  • Delusion Element: N/A
  • Weapon: N/A

Scaramouche is known as The Balladeer, the sixth member of the Fatui Harbingers, and is possibly the most enigmatic member of the group. He is an artificial being that was created by Raiden Ei in an attempt to revive her sister, but he was deemed a failure and cast aside. At some point, Scaramouche was found by Pierro and given a home among the Fatui, becoming a Harbinger with the powers of a pseudo-Archon.

Scaramouche was the mastermind behind the Vision-Hunt Decree in Inazuma, causing a rift between Ei and her people. This eventually led to Yae Miko giving Scaramouche the Electro Archon's gnosis, causing the Harbinger to flee Inazuma and retreat into the shadows. According to Childe, Scaramouche seems to have some hidden agenda and defected from the Fatui Harbingers, not being seen since he acquired Ei's gnosis. Scaramouche will be sure to return in the future, though, once his plans are ready to be set into motion.

Signora

  • Alias: The Fair Lady
  • Crimson Witch Magic Element: Pyro
  • Delusion Element: Cryo
  • Weapon: Catalyst

500 years ago, Signora was a normal woman from Mondstadt named Rosalyne. She studied at Sumeru Academy and was in a relationship with Rostram, living happily until tragedy struck. Rostam lost his life during the Calamity and Rosalyne's heart was swallowed by grief and rage, leading her to infuse her body with the art of liquid fire. She became known as the Crimson Witch, the woman who wished to watch the world burn.

Eventually she was found by Pierro and convinced to join the Fatui organization, becoming the eighth member of the Fatui Harbingers and gaining a new alias—The Fair Lady. She was heavily involved in the plots to steal Venti's and Zhongli's gnosis' before meeting her apparent demise at the hands of the Electro Archon.

Tartaglia

  • Alias: Childe
  • Vision Element: Hydro
  • Delusion Element: Electro
  • Weapon: Bow

Tartaglia, also known by the alias of Childe, is the eleventh member of the Fatui Harbingers. He is also the youngest, being recruited into the ranks of the Fatui at the age of 14 and working his way up to Harbinger status. This was a fairly easy task for him, though, as Childe had a bit of unique childhood—he lived in the Abyss for short time, and met a stranger who taught him how to fight and survive within the Abyss. When Childe finally managed to escape back to Teyvat, he had gained fearsome new power and a lust for combat.

Child was the main antagonist in the plot to steal Zhongli's gnosis, releasing the fallen god Osial onto Liyue in a bid to distract the Traveller. Both Childe and Osial were eventually stopped through the combined efforts of the Adeptus, the Liyue Qixing, and the Traveller, saving Liyue from destruction.

Dottore

  • Alias: The Doctor
  • Vision Element: N/A
  • Delusion Element: N/A
  • Weapon: N/A

The Doctor of the Fatui Harbingers, Dottore, is described as being ruthless and having little regard for human life. He hates Vision-wielders and has performed human experiments on countless innocent people, including Diluc's father, creating various monsters to serve the Fatui. He is a scientific genius and is known to have multiple research facilities across Teyvat, with the Traveller and Childe stumbling across one producing Ruin Guards during their travels.

Dottore was originally a student of Sumeru Academy, but found himself shunned and rejected by his peers due to his ideas. Pierro approached Dottore at some point in the past and offered him an invitation to join the Fatui and continue his research. Since joining, Dottore has made numerous scientific contributions, such as modifying Scaramouche's body and researching the creatures of the Abyss. It's possible that this mad scientist even had a part in creating the Delusions used by the Fatui organization.

Pantalone is in charge of Snezhnaya's economic policies, according to the manager of Liyue's Northland Bank, Andrei. He was once a poor man who became excessively wealthy after joining the Fatui Harbingers, but not much else is currently known about Pantalone.

Sandrone
