She always seems engrossed in her research. Hmm... I wonder if those machines have anything to do with her? Anyway, I've only met her a few times, but every time she looked like she wanted to murder me. I have no idea what I possibly could have done to annoy her, though.
~ Tartaglia on Sandrone.

Sandrone, also known by her codename Marionette, is a background antagonist in the 2020 action role-playing fantasy video game Genshin Impact.

Sandrone was a member of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers, a group of influential and powerful individuals who acted as the chief lieutenants of the Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya. Codenamed "Marionette," she was an intelligent researcher for the Fatui who modified and worked with Automatons.

Sandrone is voiced by Hong Haitian in Chinse, Deneen Melody in English, and Mariko Honda in Japanese. Melody has also voiced Pandora in Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World.


Sandrone a.k.a. "Marionette" was a member of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers, a group of powerful men and women who commanded the Fatui. The Fatui were a military faction who governed over the nation Snezhnaya and followed the Cryo Archon, the Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya, in her quest to overthrow the Gods of Celestia. She was deeply engrossed in researching Automatons left behind from the fall of the nation of Khaenri'ah, going as far as to modify them for her own use. At some point, she admonished the Fatui recruit Javert.

Funeral for The Fair Lady

Utterly risible.
~ Sandrone expressing her exasperation.

Marionette, alongside the other Harbingers, gathered in a cathedral in Snezhnaya for the funeral of La Signora, the Eighth Fatui Harbinger, who had been executed by the Electro Archon Baal during a Fatui plot in the nation of Inazuma. Sandrone watched on with exasperation as her fellow Harbingers pointlessly talked and bickered among themselves. Pierro, the First Fatui Harbinger, proceeded to silence the gathered Harbingers and made a speech in Signora's memory as her coffin was encased in ice.

Powers & Abilities


  • Political Influence: As one of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers, Sandrone was invested with nigh-unlimited executive authority by the Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya. With the political and economical power invested in her, Marionette could call upon almost any resource in furtherance of the goal of the Fatui. She could command the authority of any Fatuus who weren't themselves Harbingers, and presumably wielded unquestionable authority in Snezhnaya. Additionally, her official position as a Snezhnayan diplomat meant that she couldn't be prosecuted in foreign nations without significant political tension being caused.


  • Delusion: A Delusion was a device similar in nature to a Vision, allowing its user to channel elemental energy. Unlike a Vision, however, Delusions weren't bequeathed onto mortals by the Gods of Celestia but instead manufactured by the hands of mortals. Created by the Fatui to aid them in their goals, Delusions were personally granted by the Tsaritsa to her loyal subjects; few outside the Eleven Fatui Harbingers were privileged enough to receive a Delusion. Although more powerful than Visions, Delusions were more volatile and gradually drained the lifeforce of its wielder.


  • A marionette describes a puppet controlled from above by a puppeteer using strings and wires. The fact that Sandrone was depicted being carried by a large Automaton may be a reference to the concept of a marionette, with the Harbinger being the puppet and the Automaton being the puppeteer.
  • Like the other Fatui Harbingers, Sandrone's name and alias were derived from a stock character in commedia dell'arte, a form of traditional Italian pantomime theater characterized by its masked characters and representation of fixed social types. In commedia dell'arte, Sandrone was a crude, cunning, and clever peasant who acted as a representive for a poor community.
