Genshin Impact Arlecchino

Need a Genshin Impact Arlecchino build? Arlecchino, also known as the Knave or Father, is one of the Fatui Harbingers that we will meet in Fontaine. She's a mysterious figure who controls an army of spies who work under her all across Teyvat. However, little is known about her. Some view her as a saviour, while others consider her twisted and hypocritical.

She will reportedly release somewhere during the events of the Fontaine arc. This means her release isn't that far into the future. We're excited to see what kind of character the third playable Fatui Harbinger will be. We'll be keeping an eye out for all sorts of leaks and cover the best Arlecchino build as soon as it's available.

Who is Arlecchino in Genshin Impact?

Arlecchino is the 10th-ranking Fatui Harbinger, placed in rank right above Childe. She is known by the codename Knave. As a high-ranking member of the Fatui, she answers directly to the Tsarita and serves under her in the Cryo region of Schneznaya. However, she originally hailed from Fontaine and left it for unknown reasons.

Very little is known about her besides the fact that she runs the Hearth Orphanage. The orphans raised there become members of the Fatui and operate as spies and infiltrators under her direct orders. These agents are fiercely loyal to her.

However, her love for them is something up for debate. This is because Scaramouche described her as a "Wolf in Sheep's clothing", and despite her graceful front, she has a hidden side full of madness. According to them, she would betray anyone if it served her purposes.

Despite this, it cannot be denied that she saved Lynette and other enslaved from a slave trading noble in Fontaine by slaying him. She even slew the man who had sold her and freed Lyney as well. She recruited the orphans to her organisation, the Hearth, and they are both quite loyal to her and refer to her as "Father."

Arlecchino's purpose for being in Fontaine is related to the prophecy. The prophecy states that the people of Fontaine shall dissolve, and only the Hydro Archon shall remain. Arlecchino has instructed her agents to find a way to avert this outcome. Furthermore, she has received permission from the Tsarita to use the Gnosis before handing it over to her.

Arlecchino's role in Fontaine is shrouded in mystery, and she's a puppeteer, steering the plot from the shadows. No doubt she will serve a critical role in the story of Fontaine, and we can't wait to see what more her character has to offer.

When is the Arlecchino release date in Genshin Impact?

Leaks suggest that Arlecchino will be released sometime during Genshin Impact version 4 at some stage. From what we know so far, we'll be getting Fontaine characters up to Clorinde till Genshin Impact version 4.3.


With Arlecchino, speculation places her between Genshin Impact 4.4 and 4.6, where she will release next to characters such as Cloud Retainer and Guizhong. This places her expected release date to be around early 2024.

Currently, there is no reliable information about the kind of abilities that Arlecchino possesses or her combat prowess. However, she is ranked above Childe in the list of Fatui Harbingers. This means that she is more powerful than him and can pose quite a serious threat in combat. We might eventually face her as a boss during the story of Fontaine, and get information on her abilities way before her release.

We'll update this section with the best Arlecchino build as soon as we learn more about her abilities, weapons and element.
