Aether used to be a world traveler with his sister, Lumine, until the day of their unfortunate encounter with the unknown goddess on Teyvat. Robbed of his powers, the surviving sibling starts his journey to find his lost sister.

InGame Description

A traveler from another world who had their only kin taken away, forcing them to embark on a journey to find the Seven.

Pro

  • Versatile by having the ability to adapt his vision element from regional statues.
  • His Geo vision allows him to summon small meteorites that remain for 30s (40s at max constellation). These can be used to complete puzzles, reach higher floating elemental collectables, and shorten the distance needed to climb without a resting spot by using it at the bottom first.

Character Details

The keeper is fading away; the creator has not yet come.
But the world shall burn no more, for you shall ascend.

Character Story 1

A boy and a girl stood amidst the tumult, under an unfamiliar sky.
You were a pair of traveling twins, passing through countless worlds during your journey.
Descending upon a continent named Teyvat, you hoped that you would be able to enjoy your time here.
But as you awoke among the falling stars, you saw the world in turmoil, a cataclysm raging across the land...
You sought to leave this place and move on to the next world, but then an unknown god stood before you, barring the way.
This deity was spotless, floating over a world of chaos.
Looking down on you.
The god took your only kin away, and you were sealed and cast into a deep slumber filled with nightmares...
When you reawakened, the world was changed.
The flames of war raged no longer, and nothing was left that looked familiar.
How long have you been asleep?
You had no answers.
Thus, you began a lonely journey, seeking the deity that you had once laid eyes upon...

Character Story 2

After that, you met Paimon, and wandered together for some time.
You learned that this world has seven deities who rule the seven nations as the Seven Archons.
Your first stop was the free city of wine and song, Mondstadt, a city built by the Anemo Archon.
As you stepped into Mondstadt as an outlander, it was, as the other nations were, beset on both sides by non-human and human threats.
The non-human threat was comprised of the confederacy known as the Abyss Order.
The human threat, on the other hand stemmed, from the ambition of the Tsaritsa, god of Snezhnaya.
The Abyss Order had corrupted an ally of the Anemo Archon, the Dragon of the East of the Four Winds of Mondstadt.
The envoys of Snezhnaya, for their part, used this opposition to the Abyss as an excuse to put pressure on Mondstadt.
These threats from without and within caused the return of the Anemo Archon, who took on the form of a bard and joined you in your journey to save the dragon.
Yet there was something then that you did not see — for as the dragon fell to the Abyss, a certain figure had been reflected in its eyes...
The one who rules the Abyss.
He had once traveled with you, and you had once crossed many worlds together.

Vision

When faced with circumstances that they cannot control, humans often bemoan their  powerlessness.
But if a person is found to have surpassing ambition even as their life reaches such a desperate turning point, then the gods would look upon them with favor.
This favor is the Vision, an external magical focus given to those who have been  acknowledged by the gods which they can use to channel elemental power.
Celestia is the realm of the gods, and the wielders of visions walk the earth below. When they depart from this world, the chosen will ascend.
After coming to this world, you often hear people speak of such things.
You, for your part, can never receive a Vision, for an alien lifeform does not belong...
Is it wise to allow a moment's ambition to dominate one's entire life?
You have needed to consider many such thought-provoking questions, ones that require lengthy consideration, during your journey through many
worlds...
