She is first seen at the end of Act III of the Prologue, after the Traveler has assisted Dvalin and returned the Sacred Lyre to Barbara.
She appears alongside Fatui agents and magicians, attacking the Traveler and Venti off guard as they emerge from Mondstadt Cathedral. Signora does quick work on the Traveler, Paimon, and Venti, stopping them with a single snap that completely freezes Paimon and makes her fly, and freezes Venti's legs in place so she can't escape. The Fatui agents hold the Traveler while La Signora taunts Venti. When he reciprocates with another taunt, she rages and stabs him, taking his Gnosis. She then drops it to the ground after kicking it once more, leaving the Traveler and Paimon behind before the Knights of Favonius appear and catch her in the act.
Signora reappears in Act 3 of Chapter I, where she is seen with Nobile and Zhongli, the latter of whom loses his Gnosis with her under the terms of his contract with the Tsarina. Signora says Zhongli's speech during the affair is "sanctimonious" and mocks Nobile and the Traveler, before leaving just to inform the Tsarina
Signora returns in Act 3 of Chapter II, where she meets the Shogun Raiden inside Tenshukaku. Here, she flaunts her status as a Snezhnaya diplomat, as well as revealing that she had incapacitated Kujou Sara prior to the Traveler's arrival. He realizes that Signora is responsible for all of the Fatui plots on Inazuma, including the Visions Capture Decree and the distribution of Deception to members of the Sangonomiya Resistance, and challenges Signora to a duel before the throne. . During the duel, Signora reveals her true original power. After being defeated by the Traveler, she returns from her Crimson Witch form, considerably weakened from the fight. According to the rules of the duel, Signora is formally executed by the Shogun Raiden. In her final moments, Signora threatens the Shogun Raiden, calling her and the Traveler "filthy rats", before being killed by the Shogun's Divine Punishment, being disintegrated into ashes.
Signora is a tall woman with pale skin, platinum blonde hair, and light gray eyes. He wears a black Fatui mask over his face, covering his right eye, and a black earring on his left ear. Like other Catalyst users on the Character screen, she is seen with a Catalyst on her right side.
Signora acts very graceful and haughty in her presentation, even calling Venti a "rodent ruler". She is also very offended when he negatively compares her to the Tsarina, and brutally takes her Gnosis immediately after; this anger is probably due to the insult, or he hates it for an apparent inactivity during the cataclysm of Khaenri'ah.
However, she is quite different when interacting with Zhongli, due to her formal contract with the Tsarina. While mocking the Traveler for the incident in Mondstadt and belittling his fellow Herald Nobile, he is much more professional with Zhongli himself. Furthermore, he was able to keep the contract confidential, even preventing Nobile's "eavesdropping ears" from gaining such information, which Zhongli praises.
Signora seems to have the feeling that only the strongest can survive, as several mention that she is very strong and have faith in her abilities, while Nobile claims that she uses deadly force against her recruits.
Life before the Fatui
Its origins are unknown, but it lived in Mondstadt about 500 years ago. As a maiden, she loved to sing and eventually fell in love with Rostam. At some point before Khaenri'ah's calamity (presumably just before he left), Rostam gave him a special hydro-watch to keep track of the amount of time he would be away studying at the Sumeru Academy.
When he returned, he learned that Rostam had died in battle against the monsters during the calamity and mourned his loss. After her duel, she decided to use "the flame of her life" to cleanse "the wickedness of the world", becoming the Crimson Witch of Flames. It was rumored that she had left her mortal body and instead let the liquid fire flow through her, causing her intense pain at all times. Although she only burned monsters and demons, people feared her.
She was later recruited by Pierrot for the Fatui. She was given a Cryo Deception to smother her flames, and she became known as La Signora, the Eighth of the Eleven Heralds of the Fatui.
- Embers is a piece of solid material that, when in contact with fire, becomes incandescent, but without flames (such as coal or metal). The Signora seen in the fight no longer has the flames that she had in the past from the power sealed by the Cryo Deception, putting out the fire that consumed her body. In combat, apparently this seal was broken and it returned to a part of its original power, to a lesser extent because of so many years of inactivity; they are the remaining embers of what once was (Source).
- "La Signora" is a common character in the commedia dell'arte, a type of Italian theater. In such works, La Signora is typically tough, beautiful, and calculating; She is also proud and enjoys making fun of others. She is often Pantalone's wife and Pedrolino's lover.
- Her real name, Rosalyne, is of Latin or Germanic origin and can mean "beautiful, pretty rose" or "gentle horse", respectively.
- Kruzhka (кружка) means "cup" in Russian. This may not be directly related to Rosalyne-Kruzchka Lohefalter as Kruzhka is missing the letter "c".
- Lohefalter means "fiery butterfly" in German.
