@Impeeza - In most recent event it's implied by Xiao that she's somewhat special and could be said has 'adeptal affinity' - She could originally be from Liyue but not been revealed correctly.

"Affiliation: Liyue" ok I'm out, she's bartender in Mondstadt, has a cryo vision from Mondstatd, her dad is from "Deauclaire" (Dunno how it's translated in English, maybe something like Clearwater IDK) but she's from Liyue ? Wat

Impeeza 10

Anonymous 9
