What’s the Genshin Impact manga plot?

The Genshin Impact manga tells the story of the past in the land of Teyvat.

Here’s a brief summary of the manga according to the game’s official website:

“Teyvat is a world blessed by the 7 Elemental Archons. Though the calamity the world suffered has ceased, and the lands have slowly healed, peace has yet to be restored to Mondstadt, the city of wind. The domineering Fatui have been oppressing the surrounding city-states, under the guise of protection, while an ancient darkness is seeking a chance for revenge…”

And here’s the synopsis on the Webtoon site:

“Aeons ago, the elder elemental gods granted civilization to the human race, but the world soon splintered as corruption and greed grew without check. Can the forces holding this world together be balanced against human desires, or is everything ultimately doomed to end in destruction?”
