In this Genshin Impact Theory, I explore some of the aspects of the 1.4 update which I believe gave us some clues as to what the Tsaritsa is planning, as well as explore the motivation of the Electro Archon Ball.

I hope you all enjoy it!

    after playing 2.1 and knowing the Truth about Ei & Makoto also revealing that the Dendro Archon wasn't the only Archon who has been killed in Khaneriah & that the Fatui (I had already gussed that when i heared about the vision haunt & saw Scaramouch at the first time) was the ones after the vision Haunt Decree also in the last few days i have decided to learn all i can about the Cataclysm so i think what u r saying about the Cryo Archon is some how wrong ur Theory about the Gnosis i think it have a high possibility to become true & what she is aiming to also but her reasons i don't think she is like this at all First the Archons r not a former Vision Wielders so giving Visions doesn't mean that it is creating potential replacements for Archons Second the Archons were a Species that lived among Teyvat (Including Celistia) Before the Archon War & After the 7 Victorious (who was actually 8 including Ei) they started to live only in Celestia unless who have been accepted by the 7 to live on Teyvat (Like Ei , Xiao etc.) Third Venti was a Very Strong Archon before the Cataclysm , Dvalin was PURE but Venti was Weekend after Fighting against the Abyss & Gold's Dark Forces & Dvalin was Poisoned Makoto & the Dendro Archon were Killed & the Heroes of that Era's Stories told all over the Artifacts La Signore (the Crimson Witch) took the wrong way after dealing with those Creatures the Viridescent Venerer (Even though it might be because the death of the Archon of the Woods) she also truned into a fearless warrior & no longer the amusement companion to travelers the Chivalry Knight turned to be an Abyss Herald & The knights of Favonius leaders one was killed & the other lost his reasons to fight so why r u assuming that The Cryo Archon is still the Archon of love that she was once ? why no body thought of that she may be poisoned & affected by the Dark powers of the Abyss and with the hate of Celestia that all of the 7 Archons have developed that awakened her desires to Control , Destroy & changed how she looks to Humans life ? she didn't stop Giving Visions because as we can see we still have a lot of new Cryo Vision wielders Ayaka - Eula - Diona - Roasaria (The one who supposed to be Loyal to Venti) so she isn't giving Delusions instead of Visions to stop Creating Replacements as ur theory goes on she is giving Visions ordinary & giving Delusions to her Loyal Servants only & instructed them to use the given Delusions as they like to serve her (i mean her what Signora & Scaramouche did in Inazmua) when Ei started the Vision haunt decree in the last 2 years that happened alongside the fact that in those 2 years no new Electro Vision was gifted to anyone i believe that tha Cryo Archon wasn't bad at the beginning but she turned bad because of a certain circumstances Also that Gold was the main Reason that Khaneraih had been Destroyed because of what Durin thought before Dying & the fact that someone like Albedo exists but i also Believe that Celestia is somehow involved in that Destruction & the 7 r not the 7 were just trying to protect their cities like what their heroes did & were Slaying the Dark Creatures that was Created by Gold & fighting Gold Forces in the same time but Celestia's Archons could have changed the reality & Saved Khaneriah Civilians form the Curse but they decided to not to do that instead they made sure that most of the civilians get affected by the curse as fast as possible becuase they didn't accept the existance of a nation without an Archon & maybe they were who Killed The Dendro Archon & Makoto for fighting against the idea of fasting the Curse spreading & that they suppose to stop it & try to protect as many people as they can what making me believe that theory even more is what Ei said & did after the Cataclysm she wanted to save her people from the same fate even if that caused them to live without ambitions & that the nation of Khaneriah had been destroyed because of it's ambitions & they watched without being able to save them also cutting all Ties with Celestia as First thing after the Cataclysm proves that they were indeed part of what happened History is written by the winners yeah that is true but the 7 Archons who existed in Teyvat at least 3 of them (Venti - Zhongli - Ei) Had cut all their Ties with Celestia after the Cataclysm & all of them felt sad & sorrow of what they witnessed there & didn't accept what happened so when they write the history they will till the truth

    The question is then if Celestial is aware of this plan and is preparing for some sort of counter? I refuse to believe that all this activity has gone on without them noticing.

    Is there anything clearly said that venti actually fought against khanria or he is in the war but wanted to protect his people against black dragon durin with calling dvalin. Maybe he didn’t do anything against khanria but just protected his people. Because If archons doesn’t know the war and found themselves in it maybe some of them didn’t fight. Also we don’t know that all archons fought in that battle.

    Raiden Ei ( Raiden Shogun) already servered her ties with the celestia, after her twin Baal Makoto died 500 years ago the gnosis of Baal was taken by Ei and give it to Yae miko, when our dear traveler was poison by Scaramouche, Yae Miko appeard and offred the gnosis exchange for our traveler Raiden Ei just collecting vision to preserve Inuzuma she doesn’t want to move forward because of the Cataclysm 500 years ago, she’s afraid that the celestia will bring upon destruction to inuzuma if they progress that’s why she want to atain eternity for his/her people.

    My theory: The king piece is the god or maybe the sustainer of heavenly principles. In the scene where lumine was in khaenri ah destruction, we can see those red blocks or cubes that the sustainer use to attack the twins at the beginning. That means sustainer attacked khaenri ah along with the gods. Then vision bearers are pawns that could be used to ascend to godhood to monitor the mortal world. Tsaritsa collect all gnosis might be helping teywat as visions are like god eyes and if she takes all other gnosis means celestial will have less threat against them. And also keeping those gnosis will mean that no new good hood since the gnosis is still in place just not in their respective archon. And I think the sustainer send those twins to teywat was to help them to fight against fatui. Since fatui take gnosis so the traveller will obviously defend the archon and fight fatui since they don’t know the truth. But one of the sibling went to the other side to go against celestia. They witness the destruction so they form hatred against it and have a different point of view and understanding. Meanwhile we the traveller woke up late and met paimon. Meaning that we are on the opposite side. That says we might meet the sustainer again in the future

  • the realm of ryn
    the realm of ryn

    It’s revealed through Kaeya’s 4th character story (and some extra digging) thats hes basically an agent from Khaneri’ah that his father abandoned in Mond to spy on Teyvats people. After revealing his true identity as an agent of Khaneri’ah to Diluc, they fight which is when Kaeya gets his cryo vision. While watching this I realized that maybe the Tsaritsa gave Kaeya his vision because of his connection to defend the people of Khaneri’ah. They were cursed into the abyssal monsters by Celestia. If this video’s theory about the archons UNINTENTIONAL involvement (due to a higher celestial power puppeteering them) is true, the cryo vision being gifted to Kaeya could be the Tsaritsa’s way for trying to repay her guilt for the destruction of Khaneri’ah and the curses put on the innocent people. Kaeya is defending the innocent lives even if his ulterior motives look “sinister” to people of Teyvat (like Diluc for example). This could also possibly be the reason for Venti’s disagreement with the Tsarista?? Not saying that Venti has no empathy towards the cursed people, but maybe he doesn’t understand what happened? I also find it interesting that Venti seems to have a negative mindset on Celestia as he said somewhere that the apples in Celestia are bitter and that he doesn’t know why people want to go there...Granted I’m trying to pull this background information on Kaeyas backstory and etc from my memory so please correct me if you find a hole in my theory, I just thought it was interesting to share. Also if you have stuff to add please reply i wanna read stuff

  • Aaron Dee
    Aaron Dee

    Everything here makes perfect sense, asside from delusions We know delusions and the art of creating delusions likly dident come from the cryo archon, since delucs father was cought creating one with some notes that were written by the abyss Not to mention, if the cryo archon is giving out delusions in place of visions, and has been doing this for over 500 years, how come people like rosaria and ayaka still gain cryo visions? An archon can’t just dish out another archons element with a visions, it would undermine the point of them being the archon of that element, and we know that’s how it works too, because baal has actualy stopped giving out electro visions all across tayvat, meaning she’s responsible for giving out visions across all the nations, in addition to the nations archon allowing her too There’s also Childe, who would have had to receave his vision recently, which would have needed to go through the cryo archon first.

    so basically to become say a "King Archon" you need to collect the power of the other archons and wield them together.

    What if the traveler is the King 👑 gnosis, remember that archons does not have visions but even that they can use elemental abilities, also the traveler doesn't have a vision but not only can use an element, he can use them all, one Gnosis to rule them all.

  • bcfb21
    bcfb21

    I like the theory that tsaritsa figured out the gnosis can control the archons and that she is maybe not as evil as we think. So then has the tsaritsa already removed her gnosis? I wonder are the gnosis stronger than visions? Venti doesn’t seem to be unable to do god stuff I mean he performed an exorcism without a gnosis so maybe the gnosis isn’t really the source of their power. I would like to take your idea of this a step further and suggest that the og dendro archon might have rejected the order somehow resulting in her gnosis either killing her or fleeing from her and she continues living in secret. Or the tsaritsa used the dendro archon to find out how to remove a gnosis but it resulted in their death.

  • bcfb21
    bcfb21

    Silly question but why distinguish between “gods” and “archons”? How many gods might there be outside of the archons? Gods like the sustainer could exist elsewhere IMO.

      "Archon" means "Ruler." So, not all of the gods are Archons, but all of the Seven Archon are gods.

    I've been trying to get into the story of Genshin, but honestly, it's such a fucking hilly ride. It's got some points where it's full of intrigue and theories, veiled by mystery and implicative narration that never directly touches on anything palpable, ingeniously leaving the players guessing and theorizing as to "why" or "how." Other times it's so cheesy, clichéd, and troped to hell like the writers couldn't be bothered to actually *write* anything and decided to crack open the book over overused anime tropes and ripped off whatever they saw first. Razor's quest is really the nail in the coffin for me as far as actually enjoying the story goes. That was so bad. From the ground up it is so poorly written I had to force myself to finish so I could fight the wolf, and the entire Liyue quest line was so dull and boring until the climax, but then the writers switched gears and started spawning intrigue again by pretty much retconning everything up to that point and reintroducing la Signora. A hilly ride indeed.

    So what happens when an archon dies? Does the gnosis just magically transfer itself? Does some celestial entity reclaim the gnosis until a new archon emerges? How does archonal transfer of power work at all? Does this mean that the Dendro gnosis is currently held by whatever defeated him, assuming they knew about the gnosis? If the chess piece theory is correct, do allogenes have a pawn-like gnosis; or if destiny is a thing in this universe, is the destined next in-line the holder of the pawn gnosis of a specific variety, 8 pawns for 8 archons, 7 elements with an additional unknown element for the unknown king archon? Following the previous statement, is the Unknown God the archon of the 8th? As for the Unknown God, there seems to be a common theme with the four point superellipse, or the star, along with time and Khaenri'ah and it's peoples. Is it possible that the Unknown God is the goddess of time? The king-queen pairing makes sense for the time and wind quest. The fact that the Spiral Abyss has a time tunnel going to it, as the Spiral is thought to be the connection between Khaenri'ah and Teyvat; and the fact that Musk Reef is localized to Mondstadt is another time-wind king-queen pairing. Unknown God would be unknown, as her people had no god, as in she wasn't recognized to be their god, yet these people seemed to have worshipped time, and as the god of time, she was worshipped in some way, but not recognized as a being; this would lead into her hatred of humanity. The space/galaxy patterning is another common theme besides the star. This would lead me to believe that her powers would control time, the red cubes in the intro being a form of stasis, which would explain the siblings appearing in different times; this would also explain how the second sibling's attack was reversed in the intro scene. If the cubes were time-based, the destruction of the Khaenri'ahan architecture could be explained by said cubes, seen in the sibling's awakening to a world on fire, essentially deleting what they captured, resulting in crumbling ruins. Dainsleif's immortality would also be explained by a time god's blessing, or curse. There's other connections to draw here too. Paimon also seems to share a lot of similarities with the Unknown God. If the Unknown God is the god of time, and Paimon is this god in another form, this would be an immersive way of explaining pausing, the various menus, how the teleportation fast travel works (similarly to the time tunnel), etc. works. This would also explain how Paimon knows so much yet comes off as utterly stupid at the same time. If Paimon is another form, as we all do know gods can change their form at will it seems like, becoming a living chibi that does nothing but float and lust for food, is the ultimate disguise for what you truly are, the polar opposite of what they were. But to hate humanity just to help it seems odd, unless she knows of the Tsaritsa's plan, after being the catalyst for the calamity that caused the Tsaritsa to turn her back on celestia, turned to the siblings to be the ones that defeat the Tsaritsa, the only worthy warriors of doing so. If the Uknown God is the archon of time, and Paimon is her alternate form, nobody would suggest that Paimon holds the eighth gnosis, right? This would also explain why we don't see visions for an eighth element, time, outside of the Abyss Order having the use of time tunnels, because the Unknown God hasn't granted anyone visions, especially as her people did not recognize her as a god. Perhaps the Abyss Order do hold visions though, yet we don't see them as every humanoid is cloaked or armored (and yes mages _are_ humanoid, they're not an animal, look at their design and you'll see humanoid legs and humanoid hands with a cloak that has a hood that's a plague doctor mask with a fur pelt), this would also explain their teleportation 'power.' Based on the previous statement, I don't think Khaenri'ah's people were 'turned to monsters,' the mages, and above, are humanoid, while the churls are quite obviously creatures, probably created from Gold's search for life, as they share some theming with Durin; though it is possible that those who did not become mages, or above, were converted into the churls, and this is where the 'turned to monsters' statement comes from. The mages, and above, being human still also explains how they talk and still use recognizable speech. Though Paimon, if she is the god, allowing the traveler to just kill off what's left of her people is a bit odd, a very complicated story, maybe she still has a hatred of them, but that wouldn't explain the vision aspect allowing for time powers, unless the sibling has something to do with this, or the visions were left over from the cataclysm that the god produced? As for the other chess pieces, I think Dendro is the other rook, a Geo/Dendro pairing, like the Time/Anemo pairing. Along with a Pyro/Cryo pairing and an Electro/Hydro pairing, though I'm not sure which pair will be knights and which will be bishops, based on lack of information. If I had to speculate, I'd say Electro and Cryo are the bishops, a bolt of lightning will zigzag and take the path of least resistance, and ice slowly grows in a path. Whereas Pyro and Hydro would be the knights, as both of them spread outward, just like a knight in the middle of the board has a circle of spaces where it can move. We could also predict the archon personalities based on this and the element they're associated with. We can also further that and predict their viewpoints of control and freedom based on which side of the king and queen their on, queen's side being freedom, king's side being control, where Morax was control, Dendro's archon will be more free-going, which is also better associated with plant life, whereas Morax's control is better associated with rocks, just as Venti's freedom is better associated with wind, time is better associated with control, and if the Unknown God does rule over time, explains the 'sustainer of heavenly principals' line and title. I wouldn't be surprised if Pyro is associated with freedom, as a fire can be uncontrollably spread, whereas water conforms to the laws of gravity. Cryo and Electro is hard, so far either could be in either position. We know the Tsaritsa wants control of the gnoses, but for what reason, possibly for eternal freedom? Baal has become a control freak, but for understandable reasoning. Maybe it's because lightning takes the path of least resistance, Electro would be control, whereas Cryo is freedom because ice crystals can form many varieties of patterns? But, at the same time, a chess board has two sides, so what's on the other side? Is it possible that delusions are actually the visions of another set of gods that oppose the archon and Celestia? Does Celestia have an opposite with anti-gods, much like modern religions' heaven/hell coupling? Possibly these anti-gods are the gods of old that were defeated in the archon war? A movement from ancient religion being a myriad of gods with no good and evil theming, to becoming a modern religion being a good and evil theme? Maybe Celestia's opposite is the Dark Sea, if this is the case. Maybe these gods of old, now tainted and enranged, had influence on Khaenri'ah, which could explain the life-producing alchemy, the Khemia, the technological advancements, the shadowy monsters, the thirst for blood (see the name field tiller as the name of ruin guards) and need for conquering, making the people believe they can live without a god, etc. It somewhat makes sense. Their work would lead to what ends up at the cataclysm, the Unknown God destroying much of Teyvat. The old gods becoming demons, such as how Lucifer is demonized in Abrahamic religions, whereas the Morning Star, or Venus, was a god in old-world religions, circling back to the idea of an ancient religion becoming modern religion, the gods of old became the demons of the modern world. With how many references Genshin has to real-world religions and mythology, this kind of tie-in existing would make sense. This would also explain the other side of the chess board, this would also explain delusions in a way, but how does the Tsaritsa fit into this, as she's not a god of old? Maybe it's because she wants to cut ties with Celestia? I know we're creating ties to a board of chess, but who's to say that it's a two player game, what if each piece is it's own player, all on two teams, yet one player refuses to cooperate, and instead sabotages, their own team? Idk, just a couple crackpot theories.

  • Greta Leukert

    Also, when Zhongli refuses to answer the questions of the Traveler when he asks about his sister, he says that he has a contract and can't go back on his word. I think that he had a contract with the Tsaritsa to keep his silence about what happened and continue to keep his Gnosis until the day he knew he was no longer needed. The Fatui change their strategy depending on the archon they are targeting. Which begs the question: did the Fatui send a Harbinger, Scaramouche, to steal the Gnosis from Baal, knowing that she was an archon who would try to keep herself in a position of power, and thus enforce the Vision Hunt Decree, perhaps fulfilling some of their desires without her even knowing it? It's truly mysterious and this video really made me think about what is really going on behind the scenes.

  • Greta Leukert
    Greta Leukert

    I have to wonder if the Abyss and the Fatui are working together. The Abyss were corrupting Dvalin when Venti's Gnosis was taken away. They were present in Liyue to make sure the Geo Archon was still present. The Abyss come into the city and make sure the archon is present, the Fatui then make their move to get the Gnosis.

    If allogenes can success the role as archon in the future, which means the visions are spy tools used by Celestia. Maybe Baal already sided with the Tsaritsa to prevent this from happening. But it is also possible that Baal is aware of this and tried to remove all that have a chance to succeed in claiming her place as the electro archon. Listening to this video made me sprout trillions of other ideas, I can clearly sense a tremendous amount of time and effort was placed in just this video, well done! I love this vid!

    if gnosis was a tool of control then zhongli could have talked about Khaenri'ah because his gnosis was a contract because it gave him great power and when he gives gnosis he breaks all contracts and lets think if gnosis is a tool to control why Could he give so easy to the fatui? with no penalties

    Ryan Daniel S. Divino

    So the gods got angry about the arrogation of humans, It makes sense that baal wants to protect her people even if it means of stripping them off of their "AMBITIONS" Also i wanted to bring up the chess pieces of every archon has, this is just my pure theory this doesn't prove anything. Barbatos - queen piece (symbolizes freedom because the queen can go in any direction) Morax - king piece ( one of the weakest piece due to morax's retirement and handing over his own gnosis) Baal - rook piece (rook representing the walls due to baal protecting her people from the gods by taking their visions, but if only she still have her gnosis in her possession) Dendro archon - could be bishop Hydro archon - could be bishop too Pyro archon - horse piece dues to the pyro archon being the god of war Cryo archon - it could be anything lol But i bet not all of them have their gnosis on their possession because out of 2 archons venti and zhongli are the only original archons, actually maybe they where all just pawns lmao

    Assuming that these theories are spot-on. If Celestia took that much measures to Khaeriah by even using all the archons as weapons during the war. It means that Khaeriah has insane amount of war power and a massive threat. We do know about Khemia, the Alchemist Gold, the field tillers but just this much doesn't seem like that much of a threat but this is what we know for now, so Khaeriah could've had much more power than this before the destruction and hence the Gods found them extremely terrifying that to be destroyed.

    Ok because of this, I'll support Tsaritsa no matter what action she takes.

    Khanriah might also be at fault since it is a nation comprised of HUMANS. and if you watched attack on titan, according to what Erwin said, there will always be war and blooshed as long as mankind exists. So if Khaenriah did destroy celestia and continued moving forward, they would also cause destruction and hell in teyvat as well. This must also be one of the reason why celestia destroyed khaenriah altho they are also at fault

    Also Signora rumoured to be the Crimson Witch of Flames by lore could definitely be true cuz knowing her personality someone like her wouldn't simply obey to the Tsaritsa. Meaning Signora knows very well on how Celestia has caused so much suffering and supports the Tsaritsa alot since she is the one who saved her from her suffering.

    Don't know if this may be possible but could the alchemist gold actually be the unknown god. That she ascended somehow and the archons had destroyed khannria trying do destroy her but failed and she got away just to come back later?

    I think you can really get a feel for the personality of each archons based solely on who they grant visions to honestly. For Baal there's a chance she's a bit of a loner so she may come across as a bit aloof. A person of action more so words. Also able to see the dangers in the world others may not. The Cryo Archon is probably really sweet and kind. Cunning and may be a bit single minded. Causing pain to others is no doubt tearing her apart on the inside.

    I'd be really interested to see your theories on the Abyss Order's plans, and how it conflicts/coincides with the Tsaritsa's plan. Seems to me there are more than two sides to this story, and the Abyss is definitely up to something seemingly on their own!

    I think Tsaritsa (and probably the fatuis and other archons?) and the Abyss Order will fight Celestia. Us, travelers, might join them if the future plot pleases. But the two parties mentioned (Tsaritsa and the gang and the abyss order) may not be in good terms. I don't know why I came up with this, I just want to share my 3 AM thoughts. Feel free to oppose me, because I forgot know the reason of this silly theory of mine so I don't have a good defense on it.

    I just noticed a flaw in the theory. if the tsaritsa is preventing the creation of more allogenes, then why did she grant cryo visions to present day characters? She could have just done what Baal did and prevent more cryo visions. Cuz if u are right there would be no more Kaeya Eula Chongyun Ganyu or Ayaka

    I think the Tsaritsa are trying to get all gnosis to prepare for the abyss plans or are working with the abyss by taking their gnosis and preventing future gods the plan to wipe out those who had a hand in the destruction of kanreyah

    I HAVE A THEORY. SO WE ALL KNOW THAT GENSHIN IMPACT IS THE ALTERNATE UNIVERSE OF HONKAI IMPACT NOT DIRECTLY BUT I THINK IT IS. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE ON HONKAI IMPACT THERE ARE GODS OR U CAN SAY ARCHONS THAT ARE “BAD” THERE IS ONE GOD THERE CALLED WENDY AND CAN CONTROL WIND HAS HAIR LIKE VENTI. I THINK THE CRYO ARCHON IS USING THE GNOSIS TO CORRUPT THEIR MINDS. BUT I THINK THEY WILL FAIL, YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE CELESTIA IS THE ONE WHO HAS THE KING GNOSIS. AND WHEN KHAENRI’AH WAS DESTROYED THE ARCHONS WERE CONTROLLED BY CELESTIA AND THO THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING THEY COULDNT MOVE THEIR BODY AND COULD JUST WATCH IN HORROR. I ALSO THINK CELESTIA TRIGGERED THE ARCHON WAR TO DECIDE WHO IS THE MOST POWERFUL SO THAT SHE CAN HAVE “PAWNS” TO CONTROL WITH HER ARCHON. I BELIEVE THE CRYO ARCHON HAS THE PAWN GNOSIS AND IS GETTING USED AS A PAWN BY CELESTIA TO GET BACK THE GNOSIS. WHY? SO THAT SHE CAN HAVE AN UPPER HAND AGAINST THE TRAVELER. WHY SHE NEEDS THIS? BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT THE TRAVELER WILL GET ALL ELEMENTS AND THAT THE OTHER TWIN IS TRYING TO STOP HER. I ALSO THINK THIS BECAUSE SHE SAW FROM HER ISLAND FROM SKY OR SOMETHING THAT THE ARCHONS ON EARTH ARE BECOMING WEAK AND SHE WILL USE THE GNOSIS SHE GOT FROM CONTROLING THE CRYO ARCHON TO GIVE THESE TO THE ALLOGENES. THO THERE ARE 3 ALLOGENES RIGHT NOW I THINK THERE WILL BE MORE. BAAL IS TRYING TO TAKE ALL VISIONS BECAUSE THE VISIONS ARE GIVEN BY THE ARCHON. HOW THEY GIVE THESE? BY THE POWER OF CELESTIA. SO SHE IS TRYING TO STOP THE DANGER THAT NEARS HER NATION AND MAYBE EVEN THE WORLD AND USING THESE VISIONS TO CREATE A NEW GNOSIS SO THAT SHE CAN PROTECT HER LAND FROM CELESTIA. BUT MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, THE UNKNOWN GOD WHO STOPPED YOU 500 YEARS AGO WAS CELESTIA HERSELF OR A GOD SHE WAS CONTROLLING DURING THE TIME SHE WAS DESTROYING KHAENRI’AH. VENTI HAS THE QUEEN GNOSIS TO SYMBOLISE HIS FREEDOM WHICH THE QUEEN CHESS PIECE IS SAID TO HAVE THE MOST FREEDOM OR SOMETHING BECAUSE IT CAN MOVE IN ALL DIRECTIONS. ZHONGLI HAS ROOK GNOSIS BECAUSE A ROOK CHESS PIECE MOVES IN A STRAIGHT LINE AND ZHONGLI IS THE MOST STRAIGHT-FORWARD ARCHON YET. MY PREDICTION FOR BAAL IS THAT SHE WILL HAVE THE BISHOP GNOSIS. WHY? BECAUSE A BISHOP IN CHURCHES FOR CATHOLICISM SERVES GOD. AND GOD HAS *ETERNAL* LOVE FOR US AND RULES FOR *ETERNITY*. oh my god when this popped in my head I legitimately was mind blown by my own theory. XD

    See, I'm fine with this theory. Doesn't at all change my mind on how you could at least drop a single "This is for your own good"/"This is for the good of the people"/"This Gnosis will only cause more problems for the world"//whatever other vague line that could even slightly indicate a more benevolent motive before freaking _ASSAULTING AND ATTACKING SOMEONE_ Like, I get that La Signora is a separate entity entirely from the Tsaritsa but she still _REPRESENTS_ the Tsaritsa so even if she doesn't really care about being civil towards Venti she could at _LEAST PRETEND_ like like it for at least a few seconds. I seriously would have been fine with a single, sarcastic "Sorry about this" because that would have been a hell of a lot better than insulting the guy right off the bat just because she doesn't like him.

    I felt like I had to mention this, but notice how the Unknown God's portals bend the light behind them at 0:51, the stars in the sky appear to be bent in a circular form behind the portal itself, similar to how a black hole bends light with sheer force of gravity, it might not be much but I think it was worth mentioning

    I really like this theory, though I wouldn’t say that they already got to Baal’s gnosis. I think they’ll have the MC see all of the seven’s gnosis taken.

    Now regarding baal, after 2.0 update, his theory seems to be very likely cause the statue at the front of the castle where the shogun stays resembles more of the priestess who also has the electro vision rather than baal herself.

    I just noticed something interesting. When someone (fandom, npc, character, or anyone) says something about Celestia, we don't refer to Celestia as they or it, as of now, Celestia has always been refered to as a singular being. This makes me doubt, Celestia is a "who", or a "what"? Is it both? Or is it maybe, none of those? I have the theory that everything that's happening is because of a main reason... There isn't someone or something controling Celestia right now. We've been told that a lot of the main story issues started hapening somewhere between 2 years and 6 months ago (Stormterror atacks, Morax not wanting to be an Archon anymore, the vision hunt decree, Varka's big journey, Alice's lost archipielago thing, the Tsarisa's plan starting, etc). My theory is that, the thing that was controlling Celestia disapeared 2 years ago. Why? Well, humans started noticing that visions make your life way easier, and started questioning why some people get one w/o even trying, and some wait and expect it all their life and never get one. I think what happened is, Celestia's controller decided to abandon their positions, to see how humans and other creatures would act without a main controler. But how could they see this first person if not controlling Celestia? Maybe... Being with a person who they knew would travel through all of Teyvat... So yes, my theory is, in all seriusness, Paimon is the unkown godess of the start, and she is also the gobernor of Celestia.

    Tsaritsa si more likely an antihero in my opinion. like she wants to do a noble deed but her path is full of questionable decisions. And I think that Baal still have her Gnosis, and I am very curious of how will the harbingers take it form her. because within the inazuma quest line. there is a line that hints that Signora is there so we have to see what will happend in V2.1

  • EmmanuelKai25
    EmmanuelKai25

    So Baal is a Bishop because Bishop moves like lighting in a diagonal line and also because it is lock to moving in one color since the start of the game, so that also has something to do with Baal.

    Ngl this makes even more sense now with yae line saying "just like a friend" which we know yae is close to the Raiden shogun so it could be possible that baal had her gnosis taken and what's happening to her is somewhat similar to what happened with the vision bearers who lost their vision

  • KoalaNoMarch

    I'm fairly sure what I take away from all the combined cryo characters is that they seem defined by tempering their passions or nature. Chongyun suppressing his passionate side, Eula who was desperate for close personal connections and people to like her being okay with being disliked or ostracized, Ganyu's actual nature is a bit more voracious and shes very conscious about her weight (after choking a giant monster to death when it tried to eat her.) I thoroughly expect the archon to embody this to the fullest and go full on Ice-Queen. perhaps even removing or hiding away her heart. (Perhaps QiQi doesn't fit, but her case seems to be an oddity where her vision was gifted to her and everything related to the whole endeavor went south, The poor girl can't rebel or walk a new path because she doesn't even know what her old path was. Plus, it's the only recorded instance of someone who was dying being granted a vision." /bug report to celestia. We accidentally killed a little girl. "well damn" so we brought her back to life. "Oh man, thats pretty cool of yo-" yah, so now shes an unstoppable zombie fighting machine we can't reason with and we're kinda freaking out. "..." Don't tell management. "..." We got this man, no problem. "You didn't just like.. temporarily fix the problem. It's not gonna come back and bite us in the-- literally a zombie!!? Bro." ...I'm at least 80% sure we got this handled and its not a problem now. "Now.. I don't like how you phrased that." it's fiiiiiine~!
