Genshin Impact Focalors release date speculation, vision, and more

Check out everything we know about Genshin Impact’s Focalors so far, including some rumours, and lore featured in the game already

Genshin Impact Focalors: a sillhouette of the hydro archon

Our tour across Teyvat is still in full swing, and we’re getting more and more hints towards the fifth area and its Archon: Genshin Impact Focalors. Here’s what we know about the Fontaine character, and when they may appear in the game. Fontaine is the Hydro-themed region of Teyvat, and the next destination for the Traveler and Paimon once Sumeru’s story is completed.

If you’re in the mood for more lore, check out our guide to the upcoming Genshin Impact Fontaine region. We also have a Genshin Impact banner schedule and Genshin Impact tier list so you can prepare the best teams in Teyvat.

Who is Genshin Impact Focalors?

Focalors is the current Hydro Archon of Fontaine, the fifth area that Genshin Impact Travelers will visit. She’s known as the God of Justice, and she takes an interest in the trials of justice that are so precious to Fontaine, not always presiding, but can sway any final verdict to her own will.

We do have an in-game quote of hers, coming from the Varunada Lazurite Gemstone; “My ideals have no stains. I must correct you. People here bear no sins in the eyes of the gods… Only laws and the Tribunal can judge someone. They can judge even me. So praise my magnificence and purity”. This shows how integral judgement and the judicial system are in Fontaine, and that some won’t be spared just because the gods may have turned a blind eye to them.

Genshin Impact’s Dainsleif mentions Focalors during the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview, released in 2020 alongside the game. He states that the God of Justice lives for the spectacle of the courtroom, and seeks to place judgement on other gods, but Focalors knows ‘not to make an enemy of the divine’, which likely references Genshin Impact’sUnknown God. From this, we can surmise that Fontaine does not aim to make an enemy of Celestia, and would likely rather avoid a war that may rage between other regions.

Focalors is not an original member of The Seven – she took over as Hydro Archon after the original Archon died, likely during the Archon War. She appears to have different ideals than the original Archon, who sent the Lochfolk (the Oceanids), out to other places to essentially spy and gather information for Fontaine. However, we now know that the Oceanids do not agree with the new Archon, hence they have not returned to the region.

Some leaks show what Focalors is likely to look like – though these should be taken with a pinch of salt as they’re not confirmed, and are likely to change. From what we’ve seen, she has light blue hair and is dressed in fancy clothing all in shades of blue and white. She wears a small hat and has her vision equipped on a sash at her waist.

What is Genshin Impact Focalor’s demon name?

As with the other Archon, Focalors is a name taken for the Ars Goetia. Some rumours have suggested that her real name is Soutine, but for now, it remains unconfirmed. Like Raiden Shogun being Baal, and Nahida being Buer, Focalor is one of the recognised spirits in the work. Known as the ‘Duke of Hell’, they personify both sea and wind.

Genshin Impact’s Focalors build speculation

For now, there are only some few and far-between rumours as to Focalors’ potential build. We know she will have a hydro vision, as Archon of the hydro element, but other than that, everything is relatively unknown. Leakers have gone back and forth on whether she will be the first hydro claymore user, so we must wait for more information.
