Innocent and social, Youmiya loves to interact with others as much as possible, especially playing games with children to see the joy on their faces.

Her devotion to her craft comes from the warmth that her fireworks bring to people's hearts.

Rumored to be a 5-Star Pyro Bow character, Youmiya should hopefully release in Genshin Impact 1.7 or 1.8.

Her height helps her perform her duties as a ninja, though she dreams of becoming taller, believing that sleep will help her do so.

Her ambition to sleep and grow as much as possible has forced her to develop her skills to near perfection and become as quick and efficient as possible to sleep more.

Rumored to be a 5-Star Anemo Catalyst, though her looks would suggest Dendro.
