Profile

In the Knights of Favonius, Kaeya is Acting Grand Master Jean's most trusted aide. You can always count on him to solve any intractable problem. Everyone in Mondstadt loves Kaeya, but no one knows what secrets this witty and charming gentleman has.



Appearance

Kaeya is a tall young man with a thin complexion and sepia skin, who stands out for giving him a strange appearance. His visible eye is sharp and periwinkle with long eyelashes and the same diamond-shaped pupil as Dainsleif. She has navy blue hair, accompanied by lighter blue highlights, which she keeps in a long ponytail that reaches her waist. Her bangs are cut into a long fringe that falls over the right side of her face and almost covers her right eye. Kaeya wears an eye patch that she claims to have inherited from her grandfather, who was apparently a pirate. It was later revealed that it was a lie that he told to mess with people.



Kaeya's clothing is skintight and consists of an open white shirt, a slim blue jacket, and tight dark pants. She wears a black corset around her waist and, despite the fact that her shirt has a collar and is fastened at the neck with a buckle and a gold chain, her chest is fully framed. He wears a cape that resembles a single wing over his left shoulder, lined with fur over his right shoulder. He also wears fingerless gloves marked with the same diamond shape as his eyes, spiked wrist guards, and tall boots. His Vision is attached to his right hip on his belt with a chain, and a blue earring hangs from his left ear.

Notably, while other Mondstadt characters' vision features three feathers on their wings, Kaeya's vision only features two feathers.

Personality

Kaeya is a seemingly confident and charming person with a flair for the dramatic and is sometimes seen as overly laid-back. He is surprisingly popular with Mondstadt elders, even earning the title of "leading candidate for political grandson."

He seems to love telling outright lies, but this trend turns out to be a talent when it comes to his role as the mastermind of the Knights of Favonius. He often does this with thieves and criminals, and then decides whether to arrest them or let them go free. As long as everything falls into place the way he hopes in the end, Kaeya doesn't care much about the media.

Unknown to everyone around him, Kaeya is drawn to the negative emotions of others. He likes to put people in high stress situations and challenge their values, and he does so with both his enemies and his allies. He is pleased to see the hesitation in the eyes of his comrades just before they plunge into battle with him, just as he delights in the look of fear in the eyes of his enemies when they face him.



Kaeya's charisma and determination have earned her the admiration, respect and favor of many people in Mondstadt, although her love of provoking others also earned her the exasperation of those same people.

History

Kaeya is the adopted son of the Ragnvindr, a tycoon family with many wineries.

It has been a long time since he last called Diluc Ragnvindr "brother."

Kaeya, whom Jean fully trusts, is currently a Quartermaster of the Order of the Knights of Favonius.

He is also usually the person who cleans up the damage or finishes things when any incident happens in Mondstadt.

Character story 1

It's funny that the best place to find Kaeya is not the Knights of Favonius Headquarters, but the taverns at night.

Kaeya often frequents the bars to chat with other locals and drink Mondstadt's famous Death after noon liquor.

He is surprisingly popular with the city's elders, earning him the name of "the best grandson one could wish for."

It's hard to think of someone spontaneous, kind, and a wine lover as the Cavalry Captain of the Knights of Favonius. In fact, he often befriends hunters and bandits while drinking, who, no matter how alert, always succumb to the way Kaeya gets them to confess their crimes.

Given this, their responses vary from making their lives an uncontrollable nightmare, to a harmless joke: it all depends on what the confession is.

"Everyone has a secret, but not everyone knows what to do with it."



Kaeya said with a smile that would irritate anyone.

Character story 2

"Justice is not an absolute principle, but the result balanced between violence and calculations. As for the actual process ... There is no need to worry."

Kaeya said this once in front of Grandmaster Varka.

For Kaeya, the end does justify the means.

This arrogant and improvised attitude is what defines his character.

Without a doubt, the Death After Noon drink fits very well with its wild and explosive character.

However, his reckless approach is not without controversy.

Once, to force the leader of a group of bandits to confront him directly, Kaeya activated the guardians of an ancient ruins to block her opponent, even at the cost of putting her own men at risk.

At that moment, even Jean, who trusted him, shook his head disapprovingly. But this doesn't matter much to Kaeya. Rather, enjoy the moment when you were forced to make a decision.

He likes to appreciate that moment of hesitation in the eyes of his comrades before going into battle with him, as well as the look of fear of his enemies when they give their all to confront him.

Character story 3

The thriving winery business, which has a long history in Mondstadt, brought prosperity to the city.

It attracted greed, which, in turn, attracted bandits and monsters.

This threat, which manifests itself in different ways, has many reasons for reaching Mondstadt.

Kaeya defends Mondstadt from bandits and monsters not only with her sword, but also with her intelligence and humor.

Once upon a time, there was a young gentleman who spent years of his life studying the threats around Mondstadt. He came to a surprising conclusion:

When it was not Death season after noon, threat levels and incident warnings dropped dramatically both inside and outside the city, a situation that changed when liquor season returned ...

The young knight showed his findings to Captain Kaeya in hopes of receiving some response.

With a strange smile on her face, Kaeya replied to the nervous young knight:

"Interesting. I'll look into it."

Character story 4

In general, Kaeya is easy and pleasant to talk to. The only thing he never talks about is his past.

Even when the Grandmaster demanded information about her origins from her, Kaeya avoided the questions outright with extremely ambiguous answers. Said:

"It was an afternoon near the end of summer, a decade ago. My father and I passed by the Vineyard of Dawn."

"'I'll go get some grape juice for the road,' he said, but he never came back."

"If Master Twilight hadn't taken me in, I probably wouldn't have made it out of the storm that night alive."

This pragmatic story hides a carefully constructed lie.

The real conversation that took place that afternoon was:

"This is your chance. You are our only hope."

His biological father squeezed his slim shoulders with his gaze on a distant place.

On the horizon, their homeland could be seen: Khaenri'ah.

Kaeya never forgot that look of hope and hatred at the same time.

Character story 5

Many locals still remember the two most striking young gentlemen in all of Mondstadt. One of them was the impeccable Diluc, an elegant swordsman who always wore a friendly smile on his confident face. The other knight, with an exotic look, was Kaeya. He was Diluc's friend, greatest support and "brain" in all the battles they fought together.

They were like twin brothers who knew each other's thoughts and movements without needing to speak. They protected Mondstadt in both light and darkness.

Until the dark day came when a gigantic monster attacked the caravan that Diluc was escorting.

That was the first and only time that Kaeya failed in her duty.

When Kaeya finally reached Diluc's position, the situation was already hopeless. His father died by the same unknown power that he used to defeat the monster. Both Kaeya and Diluc were shocked by what they had witnessed, causing them to lose their knightly composure.

"Even Master Twilight would surrender to such evil power if he were in danger ..." When this dangerous thought crossed her mind, Kaeya smiled.

"This world is ... interesting."

Seeing his own father dead in a pool of blood made the two young men’s path separate forever.

A list of names

Between the pages of "The Adventures of Angelos"; You will find a list of names written on a sheet of official Knights of Favonius letterhead.

It meticulously records the details of bandits in the city and beyond, as well as middle and higher level mercenaries and Treasure Thief, each with an entry with a name, position, area of ​​activity and personal profile.

A few dozen names are circled, with a note in the margin that says "Otherwise things would get too boring."

When asked about it, Kaeya's response was, "I guess I must have gotten drunk and started scribbling nonsense."

Your intuition tells you that Kaeya deliberately allowed you to see this list, but you have no way of proving it.

Vision

The night Kaeya Alberich received her Vision, it was pouring down rain.

Earlier that day, Crepus Ragnvindr had used the power of a Deception, only to become its victim when he failed. To free his father from excruciating agony, Diluc Ragnvindr took his life.

Kaeya was Diluc's adoptive brother, and he was always by his side, but this time Kaeya did not participate in the last moments shared between father and son.

The torrential rain that struck Mondstadt that night seemed to be a sign of heavens grief over Master Twilight's death.

There was a part that Kaeya kept hidden from the world. In reality, he was an agent of Khaenri'ah, stationed in Mondstadt to serve their interests. His father had abandoned him in this strange and unknown land to fulfill this mission, and it was Master Crepus and the city of Mondstadt who welcomed him with open arms upon finding him.

If Khaenri'ah and Mondstadt went to war, which side would Kaeya be on? Who should he offer his help to, his biological father, who had ruthlessly abandoned him, or his foster father, who had loved and raised him?

For a long time, Kaeya suffered from these unanswered questions, in a contradiction between her duty and loyalty on the one hand, and truth and happiness on the other.

But now, the death of Crepus upset this delicate balance. He felt liberated, but also ashamed of the selfishness in his way of acting. As an adopted son, he should have saved Crepus, but he came too late. As a brother, he must have shared the pain with Diluc, and while his father lay dying on the ground, he stayed behind his brother, and that ancient plot that crossed his mind. Consumed with guilt, Kaeya knocked on Diluc's door.

As the rain fell, the veil that hid its secret was washed away, and the lie was revealed.

He had anticipated Diluc's wrath.

The brothers drew their swords, this time pointing at each other. Kaeya felt that this was her punishment for a lifetime of lies.

But when the swords crossed, a feeling of great elemental power emanating from his body washed over him. For years, he had stayed out of the way and in the shadow of his brother, but now, for the first time, he faced his brother as his true self.

Fragile, icy elemental energy gushed from the tip of his sword to meet the fiery flames of Diluc. The clash of crimson fire and blue ice created a sudden swirl of wind that surprised them both. This was the gloomy moment when Kaeya's Vision appeared.

Since that day, Kaeya and Diluc have gone their separate ways, but Kaeya never mentions it, just as she never mentions the origin of her Vision.

Although it is a reminder of a fierce battle and the award she won in exchange for revealing the bitter truth, Kaeya sees it as a reminder that she must live the rest of her life under the heavy burden of lies.

Birthday...

Today is a day worth celebrating. I hope you are very happy.

    Curiosities

    • In the Chinese version, Kaeya is known as Diluc (义弟 yìdì), "sworn younger brother". Which indicates that he is likely younger than Diluc, though not necessarily (e.g. Guan Yu's birth year (? - 220), a sworn younger brother of Liu Bei (161 - 223), traditionally considered 160 ).
