The enigmatic "Captain R", now known as Clorinde, has been causing a stir in the Genshin community ever since blurry concept art designs of her were leaked to fans before her debut. Fans were drawn to her stylish hat and Bloodborne-esque design. Recently, HoYoverse released a bombshell Fontaine teaser titled "Overture Teaser: The Final Feast”, which delivered our first official look at Clorinde.

Among the 18 new Fontaine characters that have been unveiled, Clorinde stands out with her aloof demeanour and striking design, capturing the rapt attention of Genshin fans worldwide. Read on to discover everything we know about Clorinde, including her lore, release date, playability, and more!

Who is Clorinde?

The nation of Hydro seems to be a centre of art, culture, technology, and bureaucracy (that last one’s not so fun). Based on conversations with NPCs, Fontaine’s administration appears to thrive on shifting rules and endless paperwork, which often places the people of Fontaine at odds with the ‘laws’ of their nation.

From the Overture teaser, Lyney explains that every part of “the show” is “carefully controlled” by choosing the right time, the right place, and the right people. These include Neuvillette, the Chief Justice, and Clorinde, who is seen with him.

In the recent narrative developments facilitated by the Archon Quest Chapter IV, Clorinde not only serves as the bodyguard for the Hydro Archon, Furina, but she also holds the title of a formidable Champion Duelist. She was responsible for striking down Navia's father, Callas, in a judicial duel, which strained their relationship. Although it seems that their differences have been resolved as per Callas's legacy.

While leaks suggest that she will be a sword user, the teaser reveals something different. She is shown shooting an electro-infused bullet from a flintlock pistol. This opens the doors to exciting new gameplay mechanics in the future!

The name, Clorinde, is likely inspired by the names of French naval vessels during the Belle époque era of 19th century France, which aligns with the timeframe that Fontaine draws inspiration from. Additionally, Clorinde is the name of a white butterfly known as Anteos Clorinde, which is commonly associated with the concept of "purity", tying in with the themes of Fontaine's unique judicial system.

Will Clorinde be playable?

Yes, she will be playable. She is shown to have an Electro vision in "Overture Teaser: The Final Feast” and 4.0 Livestream. She is most likely to be a 5-star Electro Sword unit.
