Genshin Impact Scaramouche Story Teaser Focuses on Betrayal

Genshin Impact Scaramouche

HoYoVerse uploaded its latest Genshin Impact story teasers for all to see, and this one focuses on Scaramouche. Sixth of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers, Scaramouche is known as “The Balladeer” and is a major antagonist in the story. Scaramouche was first introduced as part of the 2020 “Unreconciled Stars” event, and appeared again briefly in the Version 2.0 story quests. However, his most direct involvement in the main story came along with the Genshin Impact Version 3.0 update. The Genshin Impact Scaramouche story teaser gives players more insight into The Balladeer’s motivations.

Check it out below. This cutscene also plays in the game itself, during Archon Quest Chapter III: Act III.

The Scaramouche story teaser is narrated by the character himself, voiced in English by Patrick Pedraza. It goes down the list of the key “betrayals” Scaramouche experienced in his life, which motivated him to eventually join the Fatui and seek to purge the world of “all human emotion”. It also recounts Scaramouche’s personal history, his connection to the Raiden Shogun, and his life in Inazuma before joining the Fatui.

Besides Scaramouche, a second Genshin Impact story teaser was also uploaded on Monday, this time showing off the animated cutscene from the latest major story quest, King Deshret and the Three Magi. Called “Lost Legacies in the Sand”, it details a portion of the lost history of Sumeru and the Desertfolk. It also reveals the truth about the Scarlet King and his relationship to the previous Dendro Archon, Greater Lord Rukkhadevata.

Check it out below, although beware of spoilers if you’ve not yet caught up with the current Genshin Impact content.

Genshin Impact is available on PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices.
