Beautifully animated and narrated, Genshin Impact\’s story of \”The Five Kasen\” describes an ancient legend of five Inazuman poets that fell apart all because of one page of poetry. Intertwining timelines and false accusations led to a chain of events that revealed itself during Suikou\’s poetry submission. It was only then that it was discovered that one page of poetry was the key object to the downfall of the legendary quintet. Here is what happened in the story of \”The Five Kasen\” in Genshin Impact.
Inazuma had five legendary poets that people deemed \”The Five Kasen.\” The Five Kasen comprises Suikou, Aoi no Okina, Akahito, Sumizome, and an unnamed fifth who is modeled after Genshin Impact\’s rumored boss Scaramouche. The story is told from the named four poets\’ point-of-views. This legendary quintet of poets were all acquaintances until the unnamed fifth started to take matters into their own hands. The fifth individual\’s actions led to Akahito\’s banishment. That one page of poetry mentioned earlier was concrete evidence that proved Akahito\’s innocence.
Akahito was a renowned poet who marked all of his original works with his signature red seal. A year ago, he was accused of plagiarism and was exiled from Inazuma. Because of this, only four of the five Kasen remained. Sumizome assessed his poetry and noticed that the plagiarized poem lacked his signature red seal. She submerged the poetry into the water, and the ink bled only from the plagiarized poem. Aoi no Okina observed Sumizome\’s actions and added it to his poetry. Then, he turned it into fellow poet Suikou, modeled after Genshin Impact\’s playable Archon Venti, to submit to the Raiden Shogun.
The State Of Genshin Impact\’s Inazuma After Suikou\’s Poetry Submission
When Suikou presented the Five Kasen\’s works for the Shogun, he was questioned why a page from one of Aoi no Okina\’s poem was torn out. On the night before the submission, Suikou was intoxicated and only vaguely remembered a mysterious figure approaching him. The figure was revealed to be Aoi no Okina, who was forced to rip out a page of his own poetry. He then handed it over to the fifth individual, oblivious to the fifth individual\’s true intentions. Aoi no Okina was only aware that the ripped page had something to do with Akahito, modeled after Genshin Impact\’s very own Kaedehara Kazuha.
This poem that Aoi no Okina ripped out was the one which he recorded Sumizome\’s doing. The fifth individual wanted this page because it was evidence that Akahito was framed. Genshin Impact\’s National Team member, Xingqiu, is the model for Aoi no Okina, and players are left wondering whether Xingqiu and Scaramouche were former acquaintances. How far Aoi no Okina was pushed into committing this unthinkable act is unknown, but it is implied that the fifth Kasen used whatever means were necessary to convince Aoi no Okina to obey. The story ends there, in which the missing page is nowhere to be seen, the fifth Kasen\’s whereabouts unknown, and Suikou is left feeling guilty.
There are so many mysteries surrounding Genshin Impact. The question of whether \”The Five Kasen\” story is real is also something to consider. History repeats itself as the storyline of the \”Hues of Violet Garden\” event consists of another five very familiar individuals investigating a mystery. The present-day models for the Five Kasen are so perfect that it\’s eerie. As players anticipate the new Sumeru region teased in Genshin Impact 2.6, Genshin Impact surprises everyone with an event that unites characters from around Teyvat. Inazuma has finally opened its doors only for them to be stuck unraveling a case surrounding Inazuma and its noble clans.
