Latest News About Varka

Mentioned in the 3.1 Of Ballads and Brews Event

Genshin - Mika reading a letter
During the 3.1 Of Ballads and Brews event, it was revealed that Varka sent a letter back to Mondstadt having Mika, surveyor of the Reconnaissance Company, read his letter.

Varka's Letter to the Knights of Favonius

For the Knights of Favonius
  To the Knights of Favonius: Greetings, everyone. This is Varka.

  The first thing I want to say to you all is: Please put your minds at ease, the expedition is safe and all of its members are accounted for.

  Alright, now that your fears are allayed, I trust you'll be ready to listen to the rest of my letter. I'm writing to you from the northermost reaches of Teycat by the light of a stove. The expedition foreces are stationed here while we restock.

  I once told you that the purpose of this expedition was related to a dangerous secret from days long past. I am still unable to disclose more than this, but suffic to say that you needn't worry about how out mission is progressing.

  In the past couple of months, we received an unexpected visitor: the Fatui Harbinger known as 'The Captain.'

  I am fully aware of the Fatui's outrageous actions in Mondstadt in recent history. Nevertheless, The Captain was not hostile towards us on this occasion.

  Open parenthesis: I rather suspect that's because this time, Snezhnaya and we are in the same boat. Close parenthesis.

  The man hides everything under the mask he wears, so no one can know his past or his origins. However, one thing is for sure: He is hard as iron for having the courage to challenge gods as an ordinary mortal.

  I doubt that he could even take out a Ruin Guard by stabbing it in its big, glowing eye with one of Klee's crayons. Open parenthesis: Don't get any ideas. Close parenthesis.

  Our scoutes have confirmed that The Captain received orders to head for Natlan three days ago. We'll be able to sleep much better now that we don't need to worry about him anymore.

  I will admit that some of his actions have helped us. But even then, he owed us at least that much.

  This year's Weinlesefest must be kicking off in Monstadt any day by now? What a great pity that this year, once again, we will be unable to spend the festival together.

  Everyone here is always thinking back fondly upon the fine wines of Mondstadt, as well as all the happy times we have spent with each and every one of you.

  I hope that you and all the citizens of Mondstadt enjoy the festival to the fullest. Have a few drinks on our behalf - the Dawn Winery's limited-edition Weinlesefest seasonal special will do nicely.

  May Lord Barbatos bless Mondstadt, and may the wind carry our sentiments back to your side.


  P.S.: If you're wondering who's tougher between me and The Captain, well, I'm the Grand Master! There are ten captains in the Knights of Favonius but only one Grand Master, ahahahaha.

It's likely that more will be revealed during the Of Ballads and Brews event in Version 3.1.

Varka Release Date Predictions

Weapon and Element Predictions

Genshin - CheckmarkPossible Claymore User.
Genshin - CheckmarkCould be using an Anemo or Cryo Vision.

Cryo or Anemo Vision like Boreas' Element?

Genshin - Boreas

Since Varka is known as the Knight of Boreas there could be a connection to Andrius (Lupus Boreas), the weekly wolf boss, meaning he might use the Anemo or Cryo element. These are the only elements Boreas is completely immune to!

Possible Claymore User

There's a possibility that Varka's uses a Claymore as a weapon, given that he was the one who taught Razor how to use one.

Possible Future Release

Currently, there are no official info about Varka and his rarity, weapon, and element. What weapon and element combination do you think Varka will have? And when do you think we'll see the Knight of Boreas? Feel free to discuss in the comments section below!

New and Upcoming Characters

Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius

Genshin - Favonius Headquarters

Varka is the current Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius and holds the title of Knight of Boreas. Varka is currently leading an expedition alongside Barbara and Jean's father, the famous adventurer Simon Page.

Due to this, Jean is currently the acting Grand Master until Varka returns. Evidenced by numerous character voicelines and thoughts, Varka is both liked and well respected by the people of Mondstadt with Bennett even considering him to be his role model.

He is described in Jean's story profile as relaxed, unruly, and a knight of new frontiers and conquests.

Discovered Razor in the Forest

Genshin - Razor Cutscene
Varka is in fact the person who found Razor in the wild and brought him to Mondstadt. He not only gave Razor his name, but also taught him how to wield a Claymore in order to protect his friends.

Reached out to Diluc After his Father's Death

Genshin - Letter with Rough Handwriting

A Letter With Rough Handwriting

During the Hidden Strife event, players would come across several letters sent to Diluc inside Dawn Winery. These letters were sent sometime after Diluc's father died.

Varka's letter is theorized to be the Letter with Rough Handwriting, based on Diluc's reply that can be found inside Jean's office at the Knights of Favonius Headquarters.

Hidden Strife Event Guide

Varka's Letter to Diluc

A Letter With Rough Handwriting
 Diluc, Jean wrote to me lately with shocking news. If I don't miss my guess, she wrote to you too. Her sentiments are those of the Knights as a whole.

 Crepus was a good man, and I thought very well of him. It grieves me greatly to know that he met with such a fate.

 As for the defeat of the drake, the honors for that accomplishment should go to your father. I do not accept Eroch's theft of the credit for that deed, which was bought with your father's sacrifice.

 Stolen credit will not be accepted within the Knights of Favonius under any circumstances. I will not permit it.

 I have already given Jean the authority to punish Eroch with all necessary severity. The Knights will inform you of the results.

 I've heard that you've been taking some time off outdoors and may not be easy to reach, so there is no guarantee that my letter will reach you. As such, I'll stop here for now.

 If it does reach you, then I wish you good health and safety in your travels. Contact us if you need anything.

 I hope that falcon of yours will help put this letter in your hands. I mean, I don't write in person very often, you know?

 These may seem like pointless words to you right now, but remember: even the greatest of disasters must come to an end.

 Mondstadt waits for your return, and if you're willing, the Knights will always welcome you. (If you're not, forget I said anything, yeah?)

Diluc's Reply Addressed to Grand Master Varka

Genshin - Letter Addressed to Master Varka

Letter Addressed to Grand Master Varka
 Dear Master Varka,

 You have my utmost thanks for your condolences and concern. My father would be pleased to have heard your compliments.

 I doubt that anything would have pleased him more than to have the acknowledgment of the Knight of Boreas.

 I am presently traveling, and by a stroke of fortune, your letter has indeed reached me safely.

 If nothing goes awry, I believe that I will not be joining the Knights of Favonius. However, I will not forget my previous experiences. I will commit everything the Knights taught me to heart.

 May this find you in good health.

Out on an Expedition

Genshin - Mondstadt Gates

Half a year ago, Varka embarked upon an expedition taking the elite Knights of Favonius with him. Currently, there is no mention of where he was headed or when he may return.

Character Thoughts on Varka

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Barbara ImageBarbara My father left on the expedition with Grand Master Varka... I hope they are okay. Oh, what am I worried about? The Grand Master is none other than the Knight of Boreas, of course they will be fine! Still, I will be sure to pray for their safe return.
Genshin Impact - Bennett ImageBennett He's my role model! Talk about team leadersー he's the Grand Master! Leads the whole darn Knights of Favonius! How incredible do you have to be to do that!? Recently, though, I've been thinking that having a smaller Adventure Team isn't such a bad thing after all. I mean, if things got too busy in the team, I'd have no time to look after all my dads in the guild, would I? Yeah... Yeah, things are fine the way they are.
Genshin Impact - Diluc ImageDiluc Grand Master Varka... Whilst I understand his disposition, I can make no sense of his actions ...IーI've said too much already. I've long since left the Knights of Favonius. Forget I said anything.
Genshin Impact - Eula ImageEula Hmph, the Grand Master... He doesn't like to beat around the bush and has no care for rumors or trivial matters. A good guy, I guess. I sparred with him once, which ended in a tie, but his relaxed expression and leisurely attitude clearly indicated that he had been holding back the whole time... Such indignity! I will not let it go!
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean Grand Master Varka is the legend of his generation. On the day of his triumphant return, I shall be sure to personally introduce you to him. I’m sure you too will be in awe of his greatness.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya Grand Master Varka is the legend of his generation. On the day of his triumphant return, I shall be sure to personally introduce you to him. I’m sure you too will be in awe of his greatness.
Genshin Impact - Noelle ImageNoelle At first I wanted to join his expedition party and do my part as a maid. But the Grand Master said no - it would give him more peace of mind if I stayed behind to take care of things in Mondstadt. It made me so happy to hear how much he values me! ...Okay, so apparently he said the same thing to a lot of people. But that doesn't change the fact he prizes me too!
Genshin Impact - Razor ImageRazor Stranger: Varka? Razor doesn't know...
Memory: Oh, Varka is... a name. That man big. Big steelclaw, Razor's name - Varka gave him. Oh... want to see him.
Genshin Impact - Rosaria ImageRosaria I'm sure Varka means well, but his long-winded conversations get real old real quick. Although, he does really care for those around him, doesn't he?
Genshin Impact - Tartaglia ImageTartaglia Varka? Just the thought of one day going head-to-head with him in combat, the fabled Knight of Boreas himself, titan of the Knights of Favonius… It makes me buzz with excitement. It’s a beautiful life we live in this world.
