Yae Miko is the Guuji, or chief priest, of the Narukami Grand Shrine. Beyond having ties to Ayaka of the Kamisato Clan, it is currently unknown who Yae is associating with, or what position she takes in the power struggle between the Tri-Commission and the Sangonomiya Resistance.
Xiao Luohao, Head of Creative Concept and Writing Team of Genshin Impact, had this to say about Yae:
Her sleek and handsome appearance belies an intelligent and cunning personality. She is a woman who is not easy to predict and has her own principles and methods of doing things.
Luohao then confirmed that Yae would meet the Traveler several times throughout the story, announcing all sorts of interesting happenings.
Yae should be an Electro Catalyst user and, according to Sukuna, a 5 star character.
