Genshin Impact : Barbara

The Deaconess of the Favonius Church and a shining starlet adored by all. Although the concept of a starlet is rather novel in a city of bards, the people of Mondstadt love Barbara nonetheless. "I owe everything to the city's spirit of freedom."

Every citizen of Mondstadt adores Barbara. However, she learned the word "idol" from a magazine.
