|“||He loves tinkering with old things, it's a... personal passion of his. So, he converted these old ruins into a Ruin Guard research lab. [...] I can only imagine that he's gotten bored of playing around with them, and has lost interest in this place.||„|
|~ Tartaglia, about Dottore and his research lab in Liyue.|
Il Dottore, also known by his title The Doctor, is a mentioned antagonist in the 2020 action role-playing fantasy video game Genshin Impact and the main antagonist of its accompanying manga series of the same name.
Dottore was one of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers that enforced the will of the Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya across Teyvat, and was known as an eccentric genius who conducted unethical experiments to create "enhanced humans."
Dottore is a cold-hearted scientist that cares little about human lives, as he doesn't care about the death of two of the Fatui diplomats and killed one of his subordinates, Krupp, of his failure and leaking out information. After another one of his subordinates failed as well, he orders for him to be disposed.
Il Dottore is a tall man with red eyes, pale skin, and light blue short curly hair. His face is covered almost completely by a white and black mask except for part of his lower right side. The Fatui Symbol is on top on his left side. He wears a large glowing blue earring on his right ear. He has different outfits in the manga, his most prominent outfit being that of a white coat over a white shirt and striped vest. He wears a pink bow tie and dark dark pants.
Dottore was once chased down in his hometown by a group of angry mobs for his unethical human experiments involving "enhanced humans". He was later admitted to the Sumeru Academia, only to be ostracized. Dottore was later then approached by Pierro, the 1st of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers in order to help him with his research. Dottore got his name and title as The Doctor which finds "humourously ironic".
Il Dottore is introduced as being a Fatui Harbinger and a diplomat to Mondstadt. His subordinate Krupp introduces him as the Harbinger who killed Ursa the Drake, a dragon that has been terrorizing Mondstadt for centuries. By doing so, Dottore made Mondstadt indebted to the Fatui.
He probably had a hand on Ursa's attack on Diluc and Crepus' caravan, which resulted in Crepus' death. This was covered up by the one of the Knights of Favonius, Inspector Eroch, who later was found out to be a traitor and working with the Fatui.
- Il Dottore means "The Doctor" in Italian.
