Fontaine's "warden", Wriothesley, has been causing quite a stir in the Genshin Impact community, owing to his cool design and composed yet playful demeanour. In the "Overture Teaser: The Final Feast," he is seen alongside Sigewinne, the striking contrast between the two characters only served to further amplify his popularity.

Wriothesley will play a large role in the narrative developments of Fontaine and was featured in the Genshin Impact 4.1 Livestream, which showcased his full ability kit in a thrilling battle against Gardemeks.

In this article, you will find all we know about Wriothesley, who is one of the 18 new Fontaine characters to be released in Version 4.1 Phase 2. Read on to discover everything we know about Wriothesley, including his lore, release date, playability, and more!

Who is Wriothesley?

Wriothesley in Genshin Impact is a new character that hails from the upcoming region of Fontaine. He is the Administrator of the Fortress of Meropide and is in charge of keeping Fontiane's criminals at bay, giving them the "tranquillity" they require.

He was shown in one of the recent trailers along with other much-anticipated characters. In the trailer, he is shown interacting with the upcoming Melusine character named Sigewinne. They are seen sitting at a table together in the teaser, with Wriothesley playfully rejecting Sigewinne's dubiously colourful drink, and opting for a cup of tea instead.

Wriothesley looks like a "silent and rugged" young adult, characterised by his short tousled hair and his stylish red-and-black suit. The wolf symbols and distinct red elements of his attire suggest a possible affiliation with a noble family or organisation that adopts the wolf as its emblem. Based on these visual cues, it appears that he may not be directly associated with the primary justice system of Fontaine.

Callas, the former President of the Spina di Rosula, has noted that Wriothesley is "far more worldly" than he appears. It seems that their meeting dispelled any prior doubts regarding the "Duke" title being merely superficial.

Wriothesley element and weapon

Wriothesley is a 5-star Cryo Catalyst user who scales off of ATK, and works best as an on-field Cryo DPS unit.

It appears that his playstyle will be centred around infusing Cryo into his basic attacks, allowing you to punch your opponents to the curb, reminiscent of Heizou.

Wriothesley release date

It was confirmed in the Genshin Impact 4.1 Livestream that Wriothesley will receive his banner in Phase 2 of Version 4.1, which is slated to be released on 17 October 2023.
