The Description of Snezhnaya
Snezhnaya in Genshin Impact is one of the seven nations of Teyvat. The characters who live in this nation worship the Cryo Archon, the Tsaritsa and the Fatui, a religion or military force under the control of Tsaritsa which is especially popular because of their diehard devotion to her and also their unscrupulous methods in doing her will.
In this nation, there is perpetual snow and ice. When there is a question for Nadia about her homeland, this character says that people who live in Snezhnaya are delighted to be alive when they look out at the raging winter storms outside.
In Teyvat, Snezhnaya is technologically more advanced than the other nations. The Sacrificial Knife Agent describes that it is a weapon which is made with superior Snezhnayan technology. Meanwhile, Fatui Skirmishers describe them as soldiers who encased in a Fatui war machine. Alice says that the huge factories in Snezhnaya in Teyvat Travel Guide, Mondstadt and Dottore built a factory in Liyue to do Ruin Guard research which does not need personnel to operate.
The Adventurers’ Guild comes from this nation and this fact is not a secret. There are a few people who comment on it and the Guild does not encounter the similar apprehension that people regard the Fatui with. There is also a hint that Katheryne who is a receptionist for the Adventurers’ Guild are a series of androids which are made for the role. Katherynes in Mondstadt and Liyue are the same and they have ‘Error’ and ‘Rebooting’ idle quotes. Furthermore, this thing is proven by Katheryne in the dialogue options of Liyue when she side-steps the Traveler to ask about her identity.
