With Genshin Impact's 2.6 updates on the horizon, miHoYo has decided to give fans a sneak peek about the upcoming 2.7 patch, by revealing Yelan and Kuki Shinobu. They are going to be the main characters of 2.7, the last chapter of the Inazuma storyline. Aside from her revealed design, Kuki Shinobu's whole skill set has also been leaked.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase everything you need to know about Kuki Shinobu, including skill set, background and appearance.

1. Kuki Shinobu's design

Kuki Shinobu or Kuki Ninja, is an Electro character in Genshin Impact. She is the sidekick of Arataki Itto and Deputy Leader of the Arataki Gang. In her official reveal, she appears to hold a sword in her right hand.

With this reveal, pretty much all previous leaks for Kuki Shinobu have been debunked. In the past, people expect her to use the young female model (Qiqi, Klee) but it turned out she uses the young adult model instead.

2. Kuki Shinobu's character background

In the story, Kuki Shinobu is Itto's right hand, the Deputy Leader of the Arataki Gang. While Itto is the leader, Kuki is actually the brain behind the gang's operation. After her arrival, the Arataki gang's business scope expanded to all walks of life, including legal consultation, business negotiation, banquet catering, clothing customization...etc.

Apparently, Kuki Shinobu often cleans up for Itto's various antics.

Apparently, the reason Kuki Shinobu is so good at business is that she has studied overseas and has close ties to the Tenryou Commission. Furthermore, she is also highly respected, with the residents of Hanamizaka frequently seeking her guidance.

3. Kuki Shinobu's skills

Overall, Kuki Shinobu is going to be the first Electro healer in the game. She will likely function as an Electro healer and Electro battery at the same time, funneling Electro particles to another Electro main DPS.
