Genshin Impact : Hu Tao

Hu Tao is the 77th Director of the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor, a person vital to managing Liyue's funerary affairs. She does her utmost to flawlessly carry out a person's last rites and preserve the world's balance of yin and yang. Aside from this, she is also a talented poet whose many "masterpieces" have passed around Liyue's populace by word of mouth.

It would be best not underestimate someone as whimsical as her. However, should you enjoy surprises, then I believe a visit is in order.
