Jean Gunnhildr is a 5-star playable Sword Anemo character in Genshin Impact.

The older sister of Barbara (Genshin Impact), and a descendant of the prestigious Gunnhildr Clan, Jean is the Acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius. She is always busy handling unrest across Mondstadt and tirelessly working to maintain the City of Freedom.

Outfit: Gunnhildr's Legacy



  • Normal Attack: Favonius Bladework


  1. Normal Attack: Performs up to 5 consecutive strikes.
  2. Charged Attack: Consumes a certain amount of stamina to launch an opponent using the power of wind. Launched opponents will slowly fall to the ground.

西風騎士団 代理団長ジン

Focusing the might of the formless wind around her blade, Jean releases a miniature storm, launching opponents in the direction she aims at, dealing massive Anemo DMG.

  • Elemental Burst: Dandelion Breeze

07. ジン

Calling upon the wind's protection, Jean creates a swirling Dandelion Field, launching surrounding opponents and dealing Anemo DMG.
At the same time, she instantly regenerates a large amount of HP for all party members. The amount of HP restored scales off Jean's ATK.

Dandelion Field

  1. Continuously regenerates HP of characters within the AoE and continuously imbues them with Anemo.
  2. Deals Anemo DMG to opponents entering or exiting the Dandelion Field.

  • 1st Ascension Passive: Wind Companion
On hit, Jean's Normal Attacks have a 50% chance to regenerate HP equal to 15% of Jean's ATK for all party members.

  • 4th Ascension Passive: Let the Wind Lead
Using Dandelion Breeze will regenerate 20% of its Energy.

  • Utility Passive: Guiding Breeze
When Perfect Cooking is achieved on a dish with restorative effects, there is a 12% chance to obtain double the product.


  • Level 1: Spiraling Tempest

Increases the pulling speed of Gale Blade after holding for more than 1s, and increases the DMG dealt by 40%.

  • Level 2: People's Aegis
When Jean picks up an Elemental Orb/Particle, all party members have their Movement SPD and ATK SPD increased by 15% for 15s.
  • Level 3: When the West Wind Arises
Increases the Level of Dandelion Breeze by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Level 4: Lands of Dandelion
Within the Field created by Dandelion Breeze, all opponents have their Anemo RES decreased by 40%.
  • Level 5: Outbursting Gust
Increases the Level of Gale Blade by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
  • Level 6: Lion's Fang, Fair Protector of Mondstadt
Incoming DMG is decreased by 35% within the Field created by Dandelion Breeze. Upon leaving the Dandelion Field, this effect lasts for 3 attacks or 10s.


As the acting Grand Master for the Knights, Jean takes all of her responsibilities and duties associated with the role seriously, regardless of how minor the tasks may seem, such as finding a lost cat. Due to this, Jean often exhausts herself trying to complete commissions from the locals, much to the concern of her fellow members.

Her devotion to her duties stems from two reasons; her upbringing as a child, and Varka's teachings. Even though he consistently takes his duties lightly, his relaxed and unruly personality has contributed to her growth. She shows no resentment towards his attitude, instead vowing to ensure that the city will be more prosperous and welcoming when he returns. Her work ethic makes her well-liked by both Mondstadt's citizens, her fellow members, and is noted by other organizations. Although she prefers using peaceful methods to solve problems, she will not hesitate to use force if necessary. She has a habit of calling Diluc Ragnvindr her senior, even well after he left the Knights. Despite this, she acknowledges that they both share the same vision of protecting Mondstadt.


She sees Vennessa as a role model because of her exploits and how she left an impressive legacy behind and works tirelessly to maintain her legacy and Mondstadt's safety. Whenever she feels troubled or confused, she often heads to the Great Tree in Windrise.

Character Mentions

Her unparalleled sense of responsibility is the sole reason why she still hasn't found her true calling.


Trifling matters can become Jean's greatest enemy.

原神 :  ジャンとディルク

Jean is a gifted and dedicated leader. Seeing how hard she works makes even me want to help her out.


(yawns) Good morning, Jean... Oh it's you! Sorry, dear.

Stolen Kiss

I joined the Knights because of my grandpa, I stayed because of Jean. ...And now, you're the one that showed me the world beyond Mondstadt. I couldn't be happier.


Jean makes the most amazing cup of coffee! You'll have to try it sometime.

Jean might still be working? We should invite her for coffee... Let's go.


Jean will be upset if she catches us lazing around like this.

Klee (Genshin Impact)? She can be a bit cheeky sometimes, but everyone in the Knights of Favonius likes her. Although... I really ought to keep a closer eye on her if I wanna keep her from getting put in confinement by Jean again.

Master Jean is the best! But she's also a little bit scary.


Aw yeah, I improved again! But as Jean says, "Continuous self-improvement is one's duty." She says that means I'm allowed to be a bit happy about it, but not the most happy I've ever been in my whole life about it.


At the Knights of Favonius building, you're not allowed to blow up the walls. Shame, it would make getting out of solitary confinement way easier... but if I did so much as try to blow up the wall, Jean would make sure Klee never sees the light of day again. That's what Jean said, Kaeya told me.

Mm, new-bomb research complete! Now, let's get outta here before Jean finds out...


"Explosion inside city wall, grounded be thy woe," "Explosions can hurt people, Jean can be dreadful," "Mondstadt be bombed, Klee be doomed." Those're the survival rules that the Knights of Favonius gave me.

What? The Acting Grand Master? You need to give her your full support.

Back Then

I was entrusted by the Acting Grand Master to work in the background to support Noelle (Genshin Impact), but there hasn't been much for me to concern myself with — she has a good head on her shoulders. Quite the relief.

Klee. Seems she has failed to elude the Acting Grand Master's investigative skills, despite the pointers I gave her... Haha, I'm kidding, no need to go reporting me or anything.

The Acting Grand Master's family and mine are sworn enemies. But she draws a clear line between professional and personal matters. She saw I was capable, admitted me into the Knights, and gave me lots of opportunities. So, when the time comes for vengeance, I'll afford her a reasonably soft landing.


I don't get along with some of the knights, and Diluc Ragnvindr doesn't think much of them in general, so you'd think that would make us allies. But the way he always acts so aloof — he's even worse than Acting Grand Master Jean. I want nothing to do with him.

Good! With this much power, I daresay even the Acting Grand Master herself would be no match for me!

Jean? She has served exceptionally well as Acting Grand Master, one can even say she is more reliable than Grand Master Varka. Perhaps in our hearts, we all eagerly await the day she can become the official Grand Master herself.

Picnic at the beach

Barbara? She's a very earnest Deaconess. I once had the opportunity to sketch her a simple portrait... What happened to the sketch? Ah yes... Albert offered to purchase it, but I rejected his bid and gave it to the Acting Grand Master. Social relations... really require a lot of effort.

Acting Grand Master... Leader of the Knights of Favonius... Everyone seems to like her a lot. Oh? Me? I... Of course I have nothing but admiration for her!


Master Jean has always been my role model, both in terms of ability and dedication. She holds herself and others to the same high standards, so if there ever comes a day when I meet with her approval, it will be the ultimate acknowledgment of all my efforts so far. Until then, there's no room for complacency!


I've always been curious as to how Klee (Genshin Impact) managed to become a fully-fledged knight at such a young age. I actually went to ask her for tips once, but I'd barely started talking to her when she grabbed me by the hand and took me outside the Knights headquarters to play with bombs. I thought it was some kind of training exercise at first, but Jean found us, and we both ended up in a solitary confinement...

I keep meaning to ask Master Jean for some help with the Mondstadt Adventurers' Guild, but I don't know how to go about it. The Guild doesn't have as many rules and regulations as the Knights of Favonius, the dads and I are pretty laid back about everything. Pretty sure that attitude wouldn't fly with Jean though... I guess I should read up on the Knights' etiquette or something?

Acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius... A rare, mature adult who doesn't drink... But perhaps a little too earnest, cause is it just me, or are the Knights overdoing it a bit on protecting me? Hm!

You mean the Acting Grand Master of the Knights of Favonius? Her constellation is Leo Minor, which represents strength and responsibility shouldered too young... Though the lioness has been separated from her pride for a long time, she grows from strength to strength, and the day will come when she is ready to return as its glorious leader.


The Acting Grand Master of Mondstadt, a strict and impeccable woman. Her flawless etiquette knows no fault, even her letters are meticulously written and creased according to the prescribed rules. It is such easily overlooked details that offer a glimpse into the true qualities of one's character.

She's not only competent in her own work but also somehow manages to clear up various matters for others... Huh. Now that's a woman who deserves admiration.

censor skin

I don't dare talk to Master Jean that much, because she's so strict. I know she's a good person and all — I know that, I do — but... I still find her scary. I don't tend to bother her, and even when I have to... I ask Albedo to go on my behalf.

Jean has put Klee (Genshin Impact) into solitary confinement so many times, but every time she's let out it's not long before she's back in trouble. sigh Something tells me she hasn't done much introspection. I told her I'd make her a bouncing, dancing Jumpy Dumpty that is also safe — but to date there are still a lot of problems with the design.

Acting Grand Master Jean... Well, what do you think of her? Yes, I couldn't agree more: conscientious, courageous... kind and considerate too. Reminds me of another good friend...

a morning in a remote place

Oh, so Jean from the Gunnhildr Clan is the Master of the Knights of Favonius now? She definitely deserves it, she's known all over for her impeccable conduct... Oh, just the "Acting" Grand Master? Haha, well, someone of her standing won't care about titles.

Paimon: Paimon finds that hard work hardly works here in Mondstadt.
(Traveler): Why do you say that?
Paimon: Just look at Huffman from the Knights of Favonius. He does his best at his duties every day...
Paimon: But the ever-relaxed Captain Kaeya is his boss.
(Traveler): Hmm, but isn't Jean, who works the hardest, the Acting Grand Master?
Paimon: W—Well, how about this, then...
Paimon: Venti's the god of Mondstadt, and he's the laziest of them all!


(Traveler): If one hilichurl could beat, say, three wild boars...
(Traveler): Then how many hilichurls would it take to reach the fighting prowess of Master Jean and Master Diluc?
Paimon: Not sure... but if you heard the way everyone talks in Mondstadt, you'd know that Master Jean is the strongest.
(Traveler): I'd say that if Diluc strikes first, Master Jean wouldn't be able to counter.
Paimon: Oh, she'd find a way.
(Traveler): There's no way.
Paimon: Master Jean's Elemental Burst is really strong, you know.
(Traveler): Yes, but that "field" would also make Diluc stronger.
Paimon: Paimon doesn't think Master Jean would even need her Vision to take on Master Diluc, because—
(Traveler): Diluc would only need a beginner's greatsword to—
Paimon: Uh...
(Traveler): Ugh...
(Traveler): ...This is so dumb.
(Traveler): They both fight for Mondstadt, so they wouldn't come to blows.
Paimon: That's why Paimon likes your idea of measuring their fighting strength in number of hilichurls.
Paimon: ...Or in Paimon's case, in fifths of a wild boar.

ジン / 原神

Paimon: Inazuma's scenery is quite different than what we've seen so far.
(Traveler): Yeah, Inazuma's an island nation.
Paimon: Before the invention of boats, how did the people living on different islands communicate with one another?
(Traveler): According to Yoimiya's dad, they probably used smoke signals to transmit information.
(Traveler): Or, they would...
Paimon: Yeah...?
(Traveler): They would commission people who could freeze the water surface to travel between the islands and deliver messages.
Paimon: Whoa! If Kaeya had lived in Inazuma back then, he would've been even busier than Master Jean now!
