Genshin Impact will soon release the new Inazuma region, and with it, the Electro Archon will surely make an appearance.
Baal, the Electro Archon, has been mentioned only briefly in Genshin Impact so far. Since she’s an archon, players expect Baal to debut as a playable character later on, and leaks suggest she will arrive as a polearm user. Furthermore, leaks have provided detailed renders that showcase the archon’s predicted character design.
Baal’s backstory and leaked renders in Genshin Impact
Baal, known as both Raiden Shogun and the Electro Archon, rules over the Inazuma nation. Due to the leaks, Genshin Impact players expect miHoYo to release her as a playable character in a future update.
Based on different canonical descriptions, Baal may be a self-centered and prideful character. She takes the moniker of “The God of Eternity,” though her reign as the archon has lasted shorter than either Venti’s or Zhongli’s.
Baal’s history in Genshin Impact
For the most part, Baal’s backstory remains hidden. However, it’s known that she was not one of the original seven victors from the Archon War. Travelers still don’t know what happened to the Electro Archon before her, or how Baal assumed power, but these questions will likely be answered in Inazuma.
The most confirmed knowledge surrounding Baal concerns more recent events in the Teyvat storyline. Based on the Genshin Impact canon, Travelers are aware that Baal hasn’t granted an Electro Vision in an entire year.
Furthermore, about a year prior to the current moment in Genshin Impact, Baal issued the Vision Hunt Decree. Inazuma now persecutes Vision holders, consistently taking back the citizens’ Visions.
