Who is Dainsleif in Genshin Impact?

Genshin Impact’s Dainsleif is an enigmatic fellow from Khaenri’ah, and he assists the Traveler in the “We Will Be Reunited” quest series.

He was confirmed to be a playable character back on September 27, 2020, but was never given a release date. There are no leaks discussing Dainsleif, so players shouldn’t expect him to be a playable character anytime soon.

Character Information

Dainsleif is an enigmatic character, but glimpses of his persona can be captured through the narrations of the Collected Miscellany videos and the Teyvat Chapter Storyline video.

Dainsleif claims that his memory has “all but faded,” yet he is seemingly able to vividly recall the events of the Fall of Khaenri’ah. Additionally, he is also somehow able to recall many of the events that occurred in Mondstadt thousands of years ago, including stories of Andrius, the Wolf King of the North, and Dvalin, the Dragon of the East.

He appears to be a curious person, questioning how someone as diligent as Jean is able to press on so tenaciously and insists that he will find the answer to his own inquiry. He also notes how Zhongli’s placid attitude towards the fall of Morax is interesting and wonders if Zhongli could be a player in the Rite of Descension. To his own theory of Zhongli, he persists in waiting, for he does not “lack time.”

Although Dainsleif detests deities that side with the Seven and dislikes the adepti for signing contracts with Rex Lapis, he has great respect for those who are hard at work, such as Ganyu. He also greatly respects Diluc’s unwavering attitude when it comes to protecting Mondstadt, but wonders if his resolve would stay the same if Diluc were to experience the same disaster that he had witnessed himself; the fall of Khaenri’ah.

While indifferent to most crises, Dainsleif states that he would not tolerate the dangers posed by his former homeland, as he is only interested in opposing the Abyss Order. Likewise, he is particularly wary of Albedo due to his knowledge of the Art of Khemia, a form of alchemy that brought ruin to Khaenri’ah, and would personally intervene if Albedo made a single mistake with it.

At one rocky point in time, Dainsleif desired to take fate into his own hands.
