Scaramouche is the main 5-star release in the 3.3 update.

Scaramouche has finally made his long-awaited debut in the first phase of the 3.3 update alongside the Geo troublemaker, Arataki Itto. Scaramouche is No. 6 of the Fatui’s Eleven Harbingers – a villainous group that aims to wreak havoc across Teyvat. 

This evil organization continually tries to foil the Traveler’s efforts, with Scaramouche always at the forefront of each scheme. Scaramouche’s abilities enable the Anemo Catalyst user to take to the skies and bombard his enemies with deadly AoE attacks.
