Genshin Impact Paimon: Who Is She, Her Age & Is She Evil?

Is Paimon really just a silly mascot in Genshin Impact or is there a lot more to her that you don't know?

One of the most mysterious characters in Genshin Impact is Paimon as we don’t know who she is or what her motives are. You may consider her your friend or just some emergency food, but there is more to her than the game tells. Be it her origin or how she interacts with other characters, there are many things that are not clear about her. So in this guide let us learn everything about Paimon in Genshin Impact what her age is, whether she is evil, and more.

Who is Paimon in Genshin Impact?

who is paimon in genshin impact

Paimon is an NPC and the player’s guide in Genshin Impact. She is the character that has always been with the player since the start of their journey. Paimon mostly floats beside the player and has the appearance of a little girl. While she is not a playable character you will see her actively take part in the quests with the player (even if it is only limited to dialogues).

Paimon has a cheery and happy personality. Her thought process is shown similar to how a child would think, and she also refers to herself in a third-person manner. She also has a very klutzy behavior. One such instance can be seen when she leaks the secret of Kaeya in one of the early missions.

As for her appearance, she is short and fair and has white shoulder-length hair.

How Old is Paimon in Genshin Impact?

Her actual age based on the game’s lore is unknown. But considering how she looks and her talking mannerism it is safe to say she is anywhere between 5 to 8 years old.

Is Paimon Evil?

Based on the information and interactions in the game, so far she is not evil. But this can very easily change once we learn more about her. There are too many blank spaces when it comes to Paimon. The game doesn’t tell you why she can float, where she came from, or even who Paimon really is. The only known information we have on her is that the player fished her out and saved her. Ever since then the Traveler and Paimon have been traveling together looking for the Traveler’s sibling.

As per the popular theory, she could be the Unknown God that separated the Traveler and their sibling, or a minion of the Unknown God. Alternatively, it could also turn out that she is the God of Protection helping the traveler. Whatever the case might be, we can say that for now, Paimon is not evil.
