Yae Miko is the overseer of the Grand Narukami Shrine that is coming to Genshin Impact as a playable character.

Elemental Skill

Yae Miko gains increased movement speed and leaves a Sesshou Sakura in her wake. The Sesshou Sakura uses lighting to strike a nearby opponent, delivering electro damage.
