In a surprising, unprecedented move Genshin Impact revealed all eleven of the Fatui Harbingers in a four-minute-long teaser trailer for the game\’s 3.0 update. Genshin Impact players were surprised by how much was revealed in the recent trailer, which has racked up over six million views in 24 hours. Prior to the video, the identity of most of the Fatui Harbingers remained a mystery with only Signora, Scaramouche, and Childe appearing in-game thus far.
The Fatui Harbingers serve as the Tsaritsa\’s lieutenants and executive officers of the Fatui, a delegation of diplomats from Snezhnaya. Before the release of the teaser trailer, Genshin Impact players had only met three of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers. Genshin Impact\’s Tartaglia (Childe) is a five-star Hydro user and the only Fatui Harbinger who is currently playable in the game. Scaramouche, number six of the Eleven Harbingers, is expected to become playable in the future, likely sometime after the release of Sumeru. As Signora was killed in battle by the Raiden Shogun, it\’s unlikely she\’ll become a playable character.

In a trailer titled \’Teyvat Chapter Interlude Teaser: A Winter Night\’s Lazzo\’, Genshin Impact showed nine of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers, with Signora and Scaramouche excluded. The trailer finally put faces to the remaining Fatui Harbingers: Pierro, Pulcinella, Pantalone, Il Dottore, Capitano, Sandrone, Arlecchino, and Columbina. Each of Genshin Impact\’s Eleven Fatui Harbingers has a title derived from commedia dell\’arte, a form of Italian theatre popular in the 16th to the 18th century. In commedia dell\’arte, each role portrayed a specific trope such as the Fool or the Harlequin, so it\’ll be interesting to see if the personalities of Genshin Impact\’s Harbingers match their titles.
Genshin Impact: Who Are The Eleven Fatui Harbingers?
In the trailer for Genshin Impact\’s 3.0 update, the Eleven Harbingers meet to mourn the loss of La Signora and to decide how to proceed in her absence. In the video, Genshin Impact players are not only treated to close-ups of each Harbinger, but they get to hear their voices, with each Harbinger getting several lines of dialogue. Although the Harbingers express concern over the loss of their comrade, Genshin Impact\’s Eighth Harbinger, they remain steadfast and resilient, articulating the need to soldier on despite their loss. Pierro, the very first member of the Fatui, shares an ominous declaration of the Fatui\’s intent: \”In the name of Her Majesty, the Tsarita, we will seize authority from the gods.\”
The trailer concludes with a glimpse at Collei, one of Sumeru\’s playable characters expected to arrive in Genshin Impact version 3.0 or a subsequent update, dreaming of a burning tree set ablaze by a member of the Fatui. Collei awakens from her dream startled by what she saw; potentially a look at the events that will unfold in the Dendro region of Sumeru. Though Genshin Impact revealing all Eleven Fatui Harbingers was a pleasant but unexpected surprise, it certainly succeeded in drumming up excitement for Genshin Impact\’s upcoming updates.
