As the keeper and author of most Akademiya regulations, Alhaitham is part of the inner circle, closer to the upper echelon of leaders that is the Darshan Sages.

Artistic Performances Prohibition Act

During the Act 5 of third chapter of Nahida's Archon Quest, Alhaitham mentioned that he was the one who drafted the Artistic Performances Prohibition Act, a law that bars public performances as the former Grand Sage, Azar deem them irrelevant and unnecessary.

It can also be remembered that during the Chapter 3: Act 2, The Morn a Thousand Roses Brings, Nilou's performance for the Sabzeruz Festival was initially halted because of the aforementioned act.

Roommate to Kaveh

Genshin Impact Alhaitham Release Date and Details - Who is Alhaitham - Roommate to Kaveh

The infamous Kshahrewarian architect, the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring Palace of Alcazarzaray, and the Light of the Kshahrewar, Kaveh, is also the roommate of Alhaitham.

Kaveh and Alhaitham are known to bicker most of the time, but the two still seem to regard each other in a friendly manner.

As for how both scholars came across each other as roommates is yet to be told, but it's highly likely because Kaveh has a huge sum he ows to the Lord Sangemah Bay, Dori.

Alhaitham just happens to have an available room in his house that Kaveh occupies to make his ends meet.

Character Thoughts About Alhaitham

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Candace ImageCandace A truly unusual scholar, unlike any other I've ever met. He sees and thinks about things in his own unique way... I only hope he never wields his sharp mind against the peace of Aaru Village.
Genshin Impact - Cyno ImageCyno I don't really like people who are too smart. They think they can control everything, and constantly venture to the fringes of danger. But Alhaitham is one of the more reliable ones. In most cases, he is actually in control of things and has the ability to avert potential disaster.
Genshin Impact - Dori ImageDori He once came nosing around, asking my minions some questions to see what he could find out. Like I said, those Akademiya people are just pig-headed and dishonest. Why should I take the risk of others prying into my business? Right, my young apprentice?
Genshin Impact - Layla ImageLayla
Currently Unavailable
Unlock Requirements:
Reach Friendship Level 4 with Layla
Genshin Impact - Nahida ImageNahida He holds a body of knowledge more advanced than most could imagine, and his mind is constantly thinking, so maybe nothing in this world could ever fool him. But is the wise man truly wise to view the mediocre majority as defective? Because without them, there is no us.
Genshin Impact - Tighnari ImageTighnari Be careful of Alhaitham. I'm not saying he's a bad guy, but he purely operates by rationality, so people often find his actions unacceptable. If you don't believe me, just ask his housemate - thanks to Alhaitham, he has more pent-up frustration than an angry Anemo Slime.
