Included in this upcoming cast is one Sangonomiya Kokomi, who Genshin Impact fans might remember as the leaked beta character "Mimi."

Kokomi or Mimi?

Long before the announcement of Kokomi, a similar-looking beta character design was leaked and widely circulated in the Genshin Impact community. This character was named Mimi—who, like Kokomi, was rumored to be a Hydro Catalyst user. It's safe to assume that Mimi was reworked to become the Kokomi we see today, so we won't be experiencing the initial character design in-game.

Role as Resistance Leader

Xiao Luohao, Head of Genshin Impact's Creative Concept and Writing Team, had the following to say on Kokomi's role in the Inazuma 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 actually has everything arranged and in her grasp. I would say she's the brains of the forces.

Due to her position as leader of the resistance force, Travelers will likely be seeing Kokomi go head-to-head with other upcoming characters, like the Raiden Shogun (the Electro Archon herself), and Sara, the Shogun's loyal General.

According to Sukuna on Twitter, Kokomi will likely be a 5-star character, along with Raiden Shogun and Yae.
