Yaoyao is considered the Disciple of Streetward Rambler, as she follows alongside and learns from Madame Ping in Genshin Impact. While people haven’t met her in-game yet, Madame Ping comes up during an array of quests in Liyue, such as the one involving Serenitea Pot acquisition. The rabbit she carries is the Adepti treasure Yuegui, which was made and given to her by Cloud Retainer. Her details also refer to her as Burgeoning Grace, and her Constellation is Osmanthus. Her weapon hasn’t been revealed yet.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the two new playable characters who debuted in 3.3 are The Wanderer (Scaramouche) and Faruzan.
