With so many new characters being introduced regularly in Genshin Impact, it's perfectly normal to ask yourself: "now who was that again?" Kusanali was first mentioned by Yae Miko back in Version update 2.1. Since then, we've gotten a lot more details on her.
Genshin Impact's Lesser Lord Kusanali: Dendro Archon
Lesser Lord Kusanali is the official title of the Dendro Archon of Sumeru, the God of Wisdom. Fans know her as the youngest Archon, having been born 500 years ago after the events of The Cataclysm, where the former Dendro Archon, Greater Lord Rukkhadevata, died. It's been long suspected that although she is 500 years old, she still appears quite young.
Is Kusanali the same as Nahida?
Yes. Nahida has revealed herself as the vessel of Lesser Lord Kusanali. What's peculiar about her is her power over dreams. She is the reason mirages appeared in Golden Apple Archipelego in Version 2.8's main event and was the person speaking to us on the Dodocommunication Device through the power of dreams. Her power is currently being used to harvest the dreams of the people of Sumeru.
