Genshin Impact added a touch of ice to the region of Sumeru with Layla, a 4-star Cryo sword user.

Layla is a hardworking student enrolled in the Rtawahist institute, one of the six leading schools of the Sumeru Akademiya. She is currently working on her thesis on theoretical astrology, and sometimes gets caught sleep-writing her research paper hours before its due.
