Phaethon afterimages and locations of children’s shades

The Phaethon afterimages in Genshin Impact are nuances or ghosts that are still captured in Enkanomiya. Like the other ghosts you’ve seen in the region, you must have Evernight active to spot them. You will then earn a performance called The Children of God Shall Dance. Here is ours Genshin Impact guide to help you find the location of all seven Phaethon afterimages or shades of children.

Note: For more information about the game, check out ours Genshin Impact guides and features hub. Likewise, you can take a look at our main guide regarding Whitenight and Evernight puzzles.

Genshin Impact: All seven Phaethon afterimages and shades of children

The two quests you must complete are Hyperions Dirge and Phaethon’s Syrtos. The former gives you a search object called Divine Bridle. The latter, meanwhile, activates a platform on which that element is used. When you place the divine bridle in the water, the spirit of the children will be released.

Both quests are considered completed. As such, Phaethon imitations or children’s nuances task in Genshin Impact is not an actual quest. It’s just a way for us to achieve a hidden achievement.

Child # 1: Rikoru and Child # 2: Isumenasu

While standing on the platform, look north. If Evernight is active, you should see the two shades across the hole. You can quickly talk to Child # 1: Rikoru.

As for Child # 2: Isumenasu, then you have to jump from the side to label the Essence plant. Then climb up again and switch to Whitenight. This will remove the barrier. Jump into the small space and transfer the essence to the triangular mechanism. You can hit it while it’s Whitenight, to move the wall and get a coffin behind it.

Then go back and switch to Evernight and hop down again. You should be able to talk to Isumenasu.
