Who is Lumine in Genshin Impact?

The better half?

Since you are prompted to name your main character in Genshin Impact, you may not know that the twin main characters have canon names. Lumine, the female twin, or Aether, the male twin, can become your Traveler as you journey through Teyvat. This decision also makes the other twin a slight antagonist throughout the story. So far, HoYoverse has not stated that either twin is the canon main character, though some wonder if this will change when the much-anticipated anime project in collaboration with ufotable is released.

Who is Aether from Genshin Impact?

Aether is the male traveler twin. His name likely derives from the Greek God, Aether, who is considered a God of light or the bright upper sky. He wears a darker outfit than his sister, primarily brown, that is cropped at his waist. It also features diamond motifs.

What is The Traveler's background story in Genshin Impact?

No matter which twin you choose, their background story goes something like this: The twins were traveling from world to world in the universe for unknown reasons. They were stopped in Teyvat by the Sustainer of Heavenly Principles, who refused to allow them to leave this world. Together they fought this God but lost. The twins were separated. The one chosen as the main character awakens sometime later. They begin a journey around Teyvat, asking for help from the Seven Archons along the way, to reunite with their twin, who may have encountered (and even sided) with dark Abyssal forces while separated from their sibling.
