What Are Harbingers?
The Eleven Fatui Harbingers in Genshin Impact are the top echelons of the Fatui. And, there are the powerful lieutenants of Tsaritsa who have been given absolute authority. They have their abilities boosted with the Cryo Archon, Tsaritsa, gave them. It makes them more powerful than normal Vision wielders. Within the Fatui, each Harbinger leads their own division.
In the game, The Harbingers are the strongest and highest-ranking members of the Fatui. Besides, they are also all wealthy and powerful members of Snezhnayan society. The amount of money Childe has saved at the Northland Bank ‘boggles the mind’ while Goth tells the Traveler that Pantalone rented out the whole Goth Grand Hotel in Mondstadt for the personal of Fatui and paid him upfront. They selected those in the Fatui who have proven themselves in their strength to be their direct subordinates.
By their subordinates and footsoldiers, all of the Harbingers are revered. They often call them Lord or Lady and they try not to get on their bad side. Fatui foot considers if they have a sparring session with a Harbinger, it is an honor for them.
Each of them has a number, but it does not denote a definite scale of power. It just relates to their seniority in descending order. The first and the oldest is Pedrelino and the newest to join the ranks is Tartaglia. After they joined the Harbingers, the members took up a new name as well as a title. It is also referred to as an alias or codename.
