- Placeholder Backstory, Taken from Wiki, Spoilers for Genshin Impact Lore:
Scaramouche was originally created by Ei as a test into the technology of making puppet bodies. He was not meant to perfectly resemble her, only to test if creating a puppet body was possible. As his creation was successful, he was considered the prototype for the puppet she now uses as the Raiden Shogun. While he was intended to serve as a vessel for Ei's Gnosis, he shed tears upon his creation, leading her to deem him too gentle for such a task. She did not wish to kill him, so she instead sealed his power as a divine creation and allowed him to take control of his own life. Despite Ei's benevolent intentions, however, Scaramouche would come to see Ei's actions as abandonment and betrayal, since he saw her as not only his creator, but also his mother. He spent his early days in Shakkei Pavilion.
For a time, Scaramouche settled in Tatarasuna after Inspector Mikoshi Nagamasa's yoriki, Katsuragi, found him in the pavilion. Nagamasa's group referred to him as the "wandering eccentric," as he had no name at the time. Scaramouche grew close with Katsuragi and, after the forging of the Daitatara Nagamasa, performed a sword dance with him. Sometime later, for reasons unknown, the group pursued Scaramouche but was unable to find him. After learning of Katsuragi's "misconduct," which was likely related to the reason they were searching for Scaramouche, Nagamasa flew into a rage and slew Katsuragi. This divided the group, who believed Nagamasa was too obsessed with purity to understand Katsuragi's good intentions. Scaramouche regarded this sequence of events as another of his life's betrayals. Nagamasa and Scaramouche would later clash, with Nagamasa's fate afterwards left unknown.
At some point after this, he befriended a young boy. The boy made an unknown promise with him, but later died, breaking his promise. Scaramouche considered this his life's third and final betrayal, and he began wandering across Inazuma. Scaramouche also took on the name "Kunikuzushi."
Kunikuzushi eventually chanced upon a group of Fatui. Deciding they were interesting, he joined their ranks, wherein they unlocked the innate power he had as a creation of an Archon. The Fatui also gave him some additional modifications, and eventually, he climbed to the position of The Balladeer, the Sixth of the Eleven Fatui Harbingers. It is unclear whether this occurred before or during the Case of the Eccentric, which Kunikuzushi masterminded and the Fatui assisted in.
At some point in time, the Futsu, Hyakume and Senju arts of Inazuma's famous five bladesmithing practices, the Raiden Gokaden, fell from grace as a result of Scaramouche's manipulations, done in an act of revenge against "the bladesmith." Scaramouche then turned his attention towards the Isshin Art and sabotaged a diagram of a Goshintou blade, which caused all of the Isshin craftsmen to create defective blades and flee when the deadline approached, taking refuge with the Fatui and entering exile in Snezhnaya.
Kaedehara Yoshinori and the Yashiro head at the time proceeded to hunt the craftsmen, but were led to Scaramouche who confessed to the crime before dispatching the entire group with ease. However, he appeared to recognize Yoshinori and asked him if he knew of "Niwa," which he confirmed. Scaramouche then told him to let "her" know his name, Kunikuzushi, before leaving. The incident caused Yoshinori and the Yashiro head to never speak of the incident for fear of Scaramouche's retribution.
Scaramouche first appears as "???" during the Unreconciled Stars Event Quest The Crisis Deepens, where he introduced himself as a "vagrant from Inazuma." While he appeared to be friendly at first, he learns of the Traveler's identity as the Honorary Knight and tries to strike them down, only to be stopped by Mona, who realized his intentions and helped the Traveler escape just in time.
It is later revealed that he traveled to Liyue to investigate mysterious meteorites and entered a dream where he realized that the stars and sky are a "lie" and that "The Jester" had intentionally sent him without forewarning what would happen. After leaving a promising threat against the Traveler, he took his leave to confront the senior Harbinger.
He later headed to Inazuma to oversee the creation of Delusions at a secret facility and confronted the Traveler, recognizing them from before. Rather than facing them head on, he incited them into succumbing to the old gods' wrath, but the plan was partially foiled when Yae Miko walks in. She then negotiated for their safety by offering Ei's Gnosis, which he accepted and allowed her to leave with them.
After obtaining the Gnosis and Signora's death, Scaramouche cut off contact with the Fatui, causing them to believe he had gone rogue. Childe went to Inazuma to track him down to no avail. When the Harbingers convened at Signora's funeral, Il Capitano asked Il Dottore about him, in which Dottore anticipated that Scaramouche would make his move soon.
With Dottore's assistance, the sages of Sumeru Akademiya worked to ascend Scaramouche into a new God of Wisdom under the name of "Shouki no Kami, the Prodigal", comparable to Greater Lord Rukkhadevata. He also gained a follower in the form of Haypasia, who had managed to see his past during her connection to Irminsul. Showcasing his new power to the Traveler after learning Dottore was after her, he hurls lightning across Pardis Dhyai, unintentionally striking Tighnari in the process. The Traveler eventually returns with Nahida, the vessel of Lesser Lord Kusanali and manage to defeat him after a prolonged fight, during which Nahida removes the Electro Gnosis powering his new form, much to his horror. In his attempt to beg Nahida not to remove it, he accidentally breaks out from the tubing connecting him to his mechanical suit, causing him to fall to the ground and into a coma. Nahida would put him into her custody afterwards.

|Bulbapedia ||"Zorombra is a bipedal, gray-brown, fox-like Pokémon with rust brown and yellow accents. It has a pointed snout and ears with black insides. It also has some yellow rimming its eyes, ears and mouth. It has a large, rust brown, voluminous mane with yellow tips, which somewhat resembles a ponytail, as two magenta bangles down its length separates three masses of the mane from the lower portion. It has a yellow ruff on its upper body, pointed at the shoulders from which its arms extend. Its upper arms are thin, whereas its lower arms, while still slim, are bulkier and are covered in rust brown fur. The arms have spiky extensions of fur at the elbows, and it has black claws on its hands and feet. Zorombra's eyes are yellow-rimmed with neon green blue irises. On its head are two twisted yellow horns and a magenta orb sits on its forehead."|
|Accent ||Voice Clip|
Soft spoken but arrogant in tone when he speaks.
|Religion ||He was loyal to his deceased trainer, and no one else. Worships no one except himself.|
- Placeholder, Taken from Wiki:
According to rumors heard by Viktor, Scaramouche is not well-liked. Some say he has a disagreeable personality, being difficult to get along with, while others say he doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut. Even his fellow Harbingers appear to dislike him. Presumably like the other Harbingers outside of Childe, Scaramouche tends to have an air of authority and arrogance to him, as he frequently insults others on a whim.
As a Harbinger, Scaramouche is naturally a cunning individual. Possessing the wit and power to back him up, he is an unpredictable person.
|User Notes ||-Based on Scaramouche/Wanderer from Genshin Impact|
-High level from a lot of battling. This guy used to get into so many fights thanks to his trainer.
|Team notes ||Floater, will be wandering about everywhere he can, probably won't stay too long in any one place.|
|Development Notes ||Follow the same storyline development he has in-game. Stages of grief, work through that family trauma and stop being as much of a prick while still retaining that snarky attitude.|
