From what we can gather from the leaks that have been surfacing over the last few months, there is a character named Nahida that will appear who is likely from Sumeru.

It appears that both Nahida and Fischl will appear in Genshin Impact 2.8. A tweet by Project Celestia reveals a list of characters that players are supposed to encounter in version 2.8, including Nahida.
