Some of the most famous characters in the Genshin Impact include The Seven, which consists of the Archons who rule over the seven lands of Teivat. Inazuma is ruled by Electro Arcon, a position once held by the god Baal — also known as Makoto. He ruled Inazuma until he died in a catastrophe 500 years ago.
Following the events of the disaster, his twin sister, Belzebub, who acted as his body double, took on the role of Electro Arcon. However, when Belzebub also climbed the well-known Ei, he retained the name Baal, fooling Inazuma into believing that the latter was never destroyed. Ei, meanwhile, spends most of her time hiding on Euthimeer’s plane, leaving her puppet, Ryden Shogun, to rule over Inazuma.
In this confusing web, what matters is that it is impossible for the real bal (makoto) to be pulled into the Jenshin impact, since he is already dead. However, it is possible to pull for the Ryden Shogun controlled by Belzebub (Ei), whenever that character appears on the event banner.

How to get Ryden Shogun in Genshin Impact
You can pull for Ryden Shogun whenever his banner character is rated-up at the event. Genshin Impact replay usually occurs at nine to 10 banners per day, but a growing cast of characters could push this schedule further back, such as Kamisato Ayaka, whose initial release and re-release were 13 different banners.
History of the Ryden Shogun banner
- Release: From September 1, 2021, to September 21, 2021
- First re-run: March 8, 2022 to March 29, 2022
With this schedule, the initial second iteration for Ryden Shogun will be around October 4, 2022. But revealing new characters and other long-unnecessary repetitions can delay this timeline.
