Kokomi or Mimi?
Long before Kokomi's announcement, a similar-looking beta character design was leaked and widely circulated in the Genshin Impact community. This character was named Mimi, who, like Kokomi, would be a Hydro Catalyst user. It's safe to assume that Mimi was reworked into the Kokomi we see today, so we won't know the initial in-game character designs.
Role as resistance leader
Xiao Luohao, Head of Genshin Impact's Design and Writing Team, had the following to say about Kokomi's role in Inazuma's narrative:
This adorable young lady is Sangonomiya Kokomi. Despite her delicate appearance, she is actually the leader of the Sangonomiya Resistance. She is a wise and resourceful military advisor. Although she always wears a very serene smile, she has in fact arranged everything and within her reach. I would say she is the brains of the forces.
Due to her position as the leader of the resistance force, Travelers will likely see Kokomi go up against other upcoming characters, like the Raiden Shogun (the Electro Archon herself) and Sara, the Shogun's loyal general.
