In Short
  • Fontaine is the latest Genshin Impact region at the moment.
  • The new version brings lots of great characters both four and five-star.
  • While most characters are out, some of them might arrive soon down the line.

Genshin Impact 4.3 is around the corner and since we’re already quite familiar with Fontaine at this point, there a lots of upcoming playable characters that you probably don’t know about. Characters are the centerpiece of Genshin Impact both for the revenue and player base, and they’re one of the things that bring players joy. There are many Fontaine characters, so in this article, let’s look at all of them. If you missed our Genshin Impact 4.2 coverage, now is a good time to know what’s happening in the game You may have a look to get more insights about the upcoming map, characters, weapons, new mechanics, and more!

1. Arlecchino

Arlecchino is one of the most anticipated characters set to be released in the Genshin Impact Fontaine region, and that’s largely due to her design and because players love the lore around harbingers. There are two playable harbingers right now — Childe (Tartaglia) and Scaramouche (Balladeer), and given their popularity, it’d only make sense for Hoyoverse to make Arlecchino playable.

Earlier leaks pointed toward Arlecchino being a five-star sword unit but it looks like Arlecchino will use a Polearm with a Pyro vision and a different delusion. She’s the 10th Fatui harbinger, which doesn’t exactly imply that she’s the weakest. Although, she’s stronger than Childe as he’s said to be the weakest Harbinger in the lore. Most leaks point toward Arlecchino being a DPS character but now’s too soon to start judging since we’re only just getting 4.2. She made a brief appearance in the next Archon quest in Genshin Impact 4.2. Leakers suggest she will be playable in Genshin Impact version 4.6.

2. Lyney

Lyney is another upcoming character in the Genshin Impact Fontaine update who you should be excited about. He first appeared in the Teyvat Chapter storyline preview video alongside Lynette, his sister. The sibling trio Lyney, Lynette, and Freminet are from the Fatui and reside in Fontaine.

For starters, he’s a five-star character with a Pyro vision and uses a bow. Lyney and Lynette have a magic show in Fontaine, and they refer to Arlecchino as “father” since she manages the House of Hearth and the siblings belong to the same. Lyney’s signature weapon is the First Great Magic and his talents revolve around sacrificing HP to increase attack.

3. Lynette

Lynette is a four-star Anemo and sword-wielding character that was given for free in Genshin Impact 4.0 alongside another free four-star character Bennett. She’s Lyney’s sister and his assistant in his magic show in Fontaine. She’s secretly a puppet but not a lot of light has been shed on that fact.

Her skill involves her sprinting and marking enemies, similar to Yelan, and unleashes two strikes – one when she stops sprinting and another a split second after. Lynette’s elemental burst does good amounts of swirl damage, which makes her an Anemo DPS. Her Elemental Burst is where she throws a hat on the field and the same absorbs an element and does continuous swirl damage with the same.

4. Freminet

The third sibling is quite different. Freminet is a Cryo male character who wields a Claymore. He’s a physical DPS character and is quite similar to Eula. His design is quite nice and goes well with all the Fontaine leaks that were popping up at the start.

In the official artwork, Freminet seems to be using the Bell, one of the most controversial weapons in Genshin Impact. Well, not anymore since we finally have a character that can make full use of the weapon’s passives.

5. Focalors/Furina

Furina is the Hydro archon and is expected to arrive in the game in Version 4.2. Most leaks point toward her using a sword and she’ll be a Hydro unit (Duh). She’s an off-field DPS / Support character and both buffs and heals your party. She can switch states from Arkhe to Pneuma and vice versa to switch between being a sub-DPS and a healer plus party buffer.

Focalors was first introduced to us officially in the trailer “The Final Feast.” Prior information about her revealed that she’s present in about every trial as she likes bringing justice, hence the “Nation of Justice.” Focalors has a bratty personality and after the final Archon Quest, now we know exactly why.

6. Neuvillette

Neuvillette is the chief justice of Fontaine and the President of the Supreme Court. He’s a five-star Hydro character without a Hydro vision, and the reincarnation of one of the seven sovereigns of Teyvat, the Hydro Dragon, like the Dendro Dragon Apep. He’s a Catalyst user and his signature one is Tome of Eternal Flow which appeared in the Genshin Impact 4.1 Banners alongside his banner. Neuvillette’s personality is a reserved and calm one.

The “Chief Justice” doesn’t form personal bonds as he believes they may prevent him from giving the right judgment. He has talked about Nahida in her Drip marketing and introduction, where he acknowledges the actions of the “Youngest archon” to set the right course for the people of Sumeru. We also learn a bit about Focalors here as he compares her with Nahida, calling her someone who’s “Prone to hysterics,” which we already caught in the sassy tone of Focalors in the Archon quest.

7. Charlotte

Charlotte was first introduced to us in the Genshin Impact 3.7 event “Duel! The Summoners’ Summit!” She’s a journalist from Steambird in Fontaine which is one of the leading publications in Fontaine. Charlotte is a four-star character who wields a Catalyst and a Cryo vision.

Charlotte plays a major role in Fontaine’s Archon Quests. She’s a four-star Cryo, Catalyst wielder, and was first made playable in Genshin Impact 4.2.

8. Sigewinne

Sigewinne is the head nurse who first appeared alongside Wriothesley, the Duke of the Fortress of Meropide, in the first Fontaine trailer. There’s no info about her talents or weapons but prior leaks describe her as a Chibi nurse and a five-star healer unit.

As for her vision, rumors suggest she will be a Hydro character and will first appear in Genshin Impact 4.5. However, take the information with a grain of salt as that may not be true.

9. Clorinde

Clorinde hails from Monsdstadt and boasts a higher status in the Fontaine justice squad. She’s currently the number one champion duelist in Fontaine and we saw her in action during the Archon quest when Navia and the Traveler were attacked by Meka. We also saw her wielding a gun that shoots electro pellets.

Not much is known about Chlorinde’s character, talents, and play style, besides the fact that she will be a five-star unit. As per the leaks and rumors, she ought to have her first banner in Genshin Impact 4.6.

10. Navia

The dry period of Geo characters, especially Geo DPS units finally ends with Navia. We first met Navia in Fontaine and she’s the head of the Spina De Rosula organization which was once run by Callas, her father. We also learned about the history of Spina during the Archon Quests and will learn more from her story quest once she appears in Genshin Impact 4.3.

For those unaware, Navia is a Geo unit, a five-star character who wields a Claymore. Her talents and passives scale off of attack and are tied to Crystallize reaction. If you’re planning to wish on her banner, here’s our Navia pre-farming guide.

11. Wriothesley

Wriothesley is a five-star Catalyst user who resides in the Fortress of Meropide to keep all the prisoners of Fontaine in check. He first appeared in the 4.0 trailer with Sigewinne and has since then become quite popular. Wriothesley’s banner first appeared in version 4.1 alongside Neuvillette’s. He played a critical role in the Fontaine saga.


As for his play style, he uses punches like Heizou but his punches are instead imbued with Cryo. His signature weapon is a Catalyst called Cashflow Supervision. Overall, design-wise, he’s one of the best-looking characters in Fontaine, or dare I say in the game.

12. Chevreuse

Genshin Impact Chevreuse

Chevreuse is a captain of the special security in Fontaine. She will first appear in Genshin Impact 4.3 as a four-star character in the event Roses and Muskets. Chevreuse uses a Polearm and a Gun as her secondary skill weapon, and she’s a Pyro character. She’s mainly a support and healer and also increases the damage of other Pyro characters in your party.

13. Chiori

Genshin Impact Chiori

Chiori is an Inazuma character but leaks suggest she and her vision is related to Fontaine. She is a fashion designer who designed Navia’s outfit, and maybe Ayaka’s too. She will first appear in the main 4.3 event Roses and Muskets and is rumored to officially be playable in Genshin Impact 4.5. Not much is known about her talents, vision, or weapon type; however, leakers suspect she will be a five-star Geo character.
