Yae Miko Skills
Normal Attack: Spirit Fox Sin-Eater
- Summons forth kitsune spirits, initiating a maximum of 3 attacks that deal Electro DMG.
- Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to deal AoE Electro DMG after a short casting time.
- Plunges towards the ground from mid-air, damaging all opponents in her path with thunderous might. Deals AoE Electro DMG upon impact with the ground.
Yakan Evocation: Sesshou Sakura
To Yae, such dull tasks as can be accomplished by driving spirits out need not be done personally.
Moves swiftly, leaving a Sesshou Sakura behind.
- Periodically strikes one nearby opponent with lightning, dealing Electro DMG
- When there are other Sesshou Sakura nearby, their level will increase, boosting the DMG dealt by these lightning strikes.
This skill has three charges.
A maximum of 3 Sesshou Sakura can exist simultaneously. The initial level of each Sesshou Sakura is 1, and the initial highest level each sakura can reach is 3. If a new Sesshou Sakura is created too close to an existing one, the existing one will be destroyed.
“The kitsune spirits sealed in the branches are all yakan who stooped to preying upon humans. The yakan are two grades lower than us Sky Kitsune, and so, I hardly see the problem with… asking that they do my bidding. Now, this doesn’t mean that you humans should go learning from our grading systems, no indeed — and as for which of us, kitsune or human, is higher up in the pecking order… Heh, wouldn’t you like to know?”
|Sesshou Sakura DMG: Level 1||60.67%||65.22%||69.77%||75.84%||80.39%||84.94%||91.01%||97.08%||103.14%||109.21%||115.28%||121.34%||128.93%||136.51%||144.1%|

Elemental Burst: Great Secret Art: Tenko Kenshin
Legends of “kitsunetsuki,” or the manifestation of a kitsune’s might, are common in Inazuma’s folktales. One that particularly captures the imagination is that of the Sky Kitsune, said to cause lightning to fall down upon the foes of the Grand Narukami Shrine. Summons a lightning strike, dealing AoE Electro DMG.
When she uses this skill, Yae Miko will unseal nearby Sesshou Sakura, destroying their outer forms and transforming them into Tenko Thunderbolts that descend from the skies, dealing AoE Electro DMG. Each Sesshou Sakura destroyed in this way will create one Tenko Thunderbolt.
Only at times like these will Yae reveal her Sky Kitsune form and wield lightning itself. None have seen the Lady Guuji’s tails and lived to tell the story… so remember, as far as you are concerned, Lady Yae does not have a tail.
|Tenko Thunderbolt DMG||333.82%||358.85%||383.89%||417.27%||442.31%||467.34%||500.72%||534.11%||567.49%||600.87%||634.25%||667.63%||709.36%||751.09%||792.81%|

Other Yae Miko Details
The Grand Narukami Shrine’s head shrine maiden and a descendant of Kitsune lineage, Eternity’s servant and friend… and the intimidating editor-in-chief of Yae Publishing House, a publisher of light novels.
There’s no need to uncover her every facet, as they are all reflective of Yae Miko. Yet, all the same, they are not revealing of her true nature.
Like fragments of a mirror, each attitude reflects a different version of her. By being enveloped in many identities, she has become a brilliant diamond surrounded by countless mirrors.
There are hundreds of facets: solemn or cheerful, sympathetic or aloof.
No one knows the truth, just as how no one can easily spot a kitsune brushing past passers-by in the mystic woods.
But if the kitsune watches humans, where will her destiny lead?
Yae Miko’s Special Dish is called Fukuuchi Udon, made by cooking Udon Noodles with Yae Miko.
- Description: Yae Miko’s specialty. The Fried Tofu in here is specially made by the solemn Lady Kitsune. It is said that if you eat it all at one go with sincerity in your heart, you will have the protection of the Great Kitsune — misfortune shall flee and fortune abound!
Her Outfit is called Miko’s Instruction.
- Description: Yae Miko’s outfit. A shrine maiden uniform that declares her lofty position as the Guuji of the Grand Narukami Shrine to all. May the lovely sight of her in that dress remain forever, just as the Sacred Sakura emblazoned upon her pure white skirt, which will never wilt away.
