Chihayaburu
#Unleashes a secret technique as fierce as the rushing wind that pulls objects and opponents towards Kazuha's current position before launching opponents within the AoE, dealing Anemo DMG and lifting Kazuha into the air on a rushing gust of wind.
Within 10s of remaining airborne after casting Chihayaburu, Kazuha can unleash a powerful Plunging Attack known as Midare Ranzan.
Press
Can be used in mid-air.
Hold
Charges up before unleashing greater Anemo DMG over a larger AoE than Press Mode.
Plunging Attack: Midare Ranzan
When a Plunging Attack is performed using the effects of the Elemental Skill Chihayaburu, Plunging Attack DMG is converted to Anemo DMG. On landing, Kazuha creates a small wind tunnel via a secret blade technique that pulls in nearby objects and opponents.
Midare Ranzan's DMG is considered Plunging Attack DMG.

Kazuha Slash
The signature technique of Kazuha's self-styled bladework — a single slash that strikes with the force of the first winds of autumn, dealing AoE Anemo DMG.
The blade's passage will leave behind a field named "Autumn Whirlwind" that periodically deals AoE Anemo DMG to opponents within its range.
Elemental Absorption
If Autumn Whirlwind comes into contact with Hydro/Pyro/Cryo/Electro, it will deal additional elemental DMG of that type.
Elemental Absorption may only occur once per use.
"I see eternity go by in an instant, the autumns of many years from a single leaf. Thus I shall slice this maple in a flash, and ask a question of the ages."

Hello
"Come driving rain or winds that churn, I shall return, by blade alone, armed, if barefoot, to my home..." I am Kaedehara Kazuha, a wanderer who roams the land. Since we are both travelers, let us journey together for a time.

About Kaedehara Kazuha: Sailing
In truth, not every night out at sea is filled with wind and waves. When the weather is clear, the moonlight flows over the rippling water, and schools of fish circle the ship's hull. At moments like that, when I look out into the distance from the prow, I feel like this journey is worth it... The only thing that takes away from that feeling is the sailors' singing. They're so loud... don't they need to sleep?

About Kaedehara Kazuha: Samurai Nobility
The Kaedehara Clan was once a famed samurai clan. It's a pity that by the time the noble name passed to me, the title itself was all that was left. But it is enough for me. A samurai has no need of a lavish life — we find all that we need in wine, song, and the blade in our hands.

About the Vision

About Gorou
When I was a wanted man, the resistance gave me a lot of help. The time I spent with Gorou was brief, but he left a deep impression on me. He's the type of person who says whatever's on his mind. He shares the highs and lows of his subordinates, and is never afraid to draw his sword for the sake of a friend. That's the kind of person I can really get along with.

About Kujou Sara
She defeated my friend in a duel before the throne, which I accept as proof of her great strength. But she uses that strength to serve as an oppressor's lackey, leading the Kujou Clan's troops to relentlessly seek out and confiscate Visions. This... I cannot forgive.

About the Raiden Shogun
I've asked myself this question many times since leaving Inazuma. Do I simply resent the Raiden Shogun because of what happened in that duel? Because of the lethal stroke she dealt my dear friend? I've thought about this a good long time, and I believe the answer is no. My friend died an honorable death in that duel, and the Shogun was not unjustified in her conduct. My dissatisfaction with her has its roots in the Vision Hunt Decree. No-one has the right to rob another of their hopes and dreams — not even a god.

About Kamisato Ayaka

About Kaedehara Kazuha: II
I have a very keen sense of hearing. My ears pick up all sorts of sounds: the wind through the mountain passes, the parting clouds, the sound of foxes chewing on apples in the forest, the sound of crabs blowing bubbles... This is nature's favor, it allows me to sense danger long before it draws near.

About Kaedehara Kazuha: III
I used to love the rain when I was small. The sound of it would lull me into a peaceful sleep. But since I've grown older, my feelings have become more... complicated. I still like to listen to the rain today, but whenever I see the storm clouds start to gather, my heart sinks and I can't help but wonder: "Hm... will some nice person let me stay the night today?" Listening to the rain in drenched clothes is hardly peaceful — hehe... nothing can be when you're constantly interrupting yourself by sneezing.

Kaedehara Kazuha's Troubles

Favorite Food
The most easily obtainable food source when you're out at sea is, of course, fish. So it goes without saying that a seafaring adventurer must give careful consideration to how to cook a tasty fish-based meal... If the chance arises, I'd like you to try some of my cooking.
Audio LanguageEnglishJapaneseChineseKorean
Audio Response
Least Favorite Food
I am not particularly fond of food that is thrown together in a hurry without much care and attention. The way I see it, if your meal consists of a single fish, you should grill it to perfection. Eating is supposed to be an enjoyable experience, so how can we stand to be so slapdash about it?

Birthday
I heard it was your birthday, so I wrote a haiku for you. Unfortunately, I'm not the most talented in this area, and after trying for several evenings, I was still only able to come up with the first two lines... I guess I'll just share what I've got so far, then. "Sun and moon rejoice / Birds of dawn sing songs anew"... Wait, don't say a word, I think the final line is coming to me... Yes, how about.... "Far from home, with you." Anyway, Happy Birthday. Let's go and get you some cake, shall we?

Character Details
Most people who meet Kaedehara Kazuha for the first time might be inclined to assume that he is just a trainee sailor with the Crux Fleet.

After all, he is a gentle soul who enjoys reciting poetry when idle, and who speaks to everyone in a leisurely manner. Who could tell that he is a wanted man throughout Inazuma?

Even Beidou, ever the good judge of character, could not tell that Kazuha could wield a sword with the skill of a seasoned warrior when she first decided to take him in.

Who knows if it was the storms of life that smoothed out his rough edges, or if his natural restraint has kept his edge sheathed.
Character Story 1
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 2
The Crux, an armed fleet from Liyue, spends much of the year on the high seas, and its sailors are quite used to the vagaries of life in other nations. So they were more curious than surprised when an outlander began serving as a sailor on their flagship, the Alcor.

The sailor in question was picked up when the Alcor docked at the Inazuman port of Ritou.

Beidou had made friends with this young man, and when he came on board, she told her crew, "This guy's gonna be staying with us for a while. Take care of him, now."

The sailors trusted Beidou's judgment and admired the newcomer for his martial prowess, not to mention his ability to predict the weather, so they were happy to overlook his reticence to discuss his past, and welcomed him aboard.

Still, their curiosity did not abate, and they would often find all sorts of excuses to try and ply him for information about his experiences.

"I've heard that they make some sweet blades there in Inazuma and that the bigger the fish you are, the swankier the sword. So, uh... how's yours measure up?"

"..."

Kazuha would remain silent in the face of all such queries.

Over time, after countless attempts to garner a response proved futile, the sailors would simply give up asking.

Eventually, it was an off-the-cuff remark from Chief Mate, Juza, just a few days later that finally managed to elicit a reply.

"Hey, Inazuma boy. What are the lads supposed to call you if they don't even know your name?"

The young sailor wiped the sweat from his brow with his callused hands.

"My name is Kaedehara Kazuha, a wandering samurai. I am in your debt for taking me in, so just call me 'Kazuha.'"
Character Story 2
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 3
Kazuha was not born a commoner. He hails from an Inazuman noble house of old, the last son of the Kaedehara Clan.

Inazuma City is home to many illustrious clans, and the Kaedehara name was once one of the most renowned among them. But fortune is fickle, and the Kaedeharas' fortunes had already collapsed by the time they were Kazuha's to inherit.

As the young master of the house, Kazuha could do nothing but watch as his family's future crumbled around him. But as helpless as this made him feel, when the moment came that the home was officially repossessed and the last attendant was finally dismissed, he breathed a sigh of relief: As far as he was concerned, this was a golden opportunity to begin leading a free and wandering life.

He had always longed to roam the mountains and forests, and had held a deep admiration for the beauty and authenticity of nature since his youth.

To Kazuha, nature had never been silent. It had always spoken to him, conveying its feelings in its own unique language.

When the wind ceases to speak and the world falls silent, that is the calm before the skies begin to weep. When silent springs suddenly leap into activity, it is the omen of a great earthquake.

These are the unique poetics that nature has bestowed upon him, and Kazuha was never one to be preoccupied with luxury anyway — so if the burden of family responsibility should drop from his shoulders, why not go wandering, and travel light?

Thus did Kazuha strike out on his journey, like a falling leaf in the yard carried away by the wind.
Character Story 3
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
All travelers who outdoors roam need some skill to call their own. For Kazuha, this is his ability to read the sounds of nature.

After leaving Inazuma City, Kazuha wandered here and there. Things were different now: all of nature was his treasured home, and the sounds of wind and water beneath the sight of drifting clouds set his heart at ease.

All that he saw on the road filled him with curiosity. It was in this state of mind that Kazuha arrived at a mountain in the south.

It was early summer, and the frequent and heavy rainfall had turned the mountain roads to mud. Seeing that night was soon to fall, Kazuha decided to find somewhere to shelter from the rain. No sooner had he had this thought than he turned around to see a small straw hut at the far end of the road.

The traveling merchant with whom he was traveling at that time whooped for joy at the sight of the hut: "Kazuha, look! We'll have a roof over our heads tonight!"

But Kazuha did not speak. He paused and listened intently for a long while before he finally replied: "If you were to ask my opinion... it may be best to stay away."

But the merchant did not wish to remain in the rain. He left Kazuha and made his way to the house.

Upon knocking at the door, the traveling merchant was met by a lovely woman who offered him shelter, tea, food, and even bedding for the night.

Perhaps it was the excellent food, but the merchant quickly became drowsy and fell asleep immediately after finishing his meal.

When he awoke the following morning, there was no roof over his head. The bright sunlight pierced his eyes, and all he could see was Kazuha stood nearby, looking down at him and smiling.

Before the merchant could speak, he vomited a great pile of leaves and mud. And as for the bedding upon which he had slept so soundly, ah, it too was mud.

Kazuha smiled and said: "The wind is weaker where there are houses. Yet here stood a hut, and there was no change in the mountain breeze. I think you might have been the victim of a bake-danuki's prank. Never mind. Next time, listen more closely to the wind and tread with care."
Character Story 4
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 5
Kazuha made many friends during his travels. One of them was particularly close to his heart, and for a time, the two journeyed together.

But they too would part, for their destinations were different.

To have met merely by chance and then form such a strong bond, there must be a fated connection between them... so, although they would part ways for now, surely they would meet again. Or so Kazuha thought.

But something happened soon thereafter that would shatter his calm disposition — the Almighty Shogun promulgated the Vision Hunt Decree and swore to retrieve all Visions.

All who wielded them, including Kazuha, were stricken with panic, concealing their identities and going into hiding.

It was then that Kazuha received shocking news: Someone had dared to call for a "duel before the throne," and that someone was none other than Kazuha's dear friend.

The defeated party in a duel before the throne would face punishment at the hand of the Shogun herself. His friend was prepared to risk all to come before the throne, partly for the chance to fight against a strong foe, but also to demonstrate the meaning of courage to all.

And yet, to call for this challenge now, of all times... Kazuha feared that his punishment, should he fail, would be absolute: The Almighty Shogun would unleash her lightning upon him in its full fury, and it would surely take his life.

Even the normally calm Kazuha could not restrain himself. He drew his sword and stormed into Tenshukaku like a whirlwind... But alas, he arrived too late.

His friend's sword lay shattered in pieces, his Vision now an empty husk. Now a wanted man himself, Kazuha fled with grief in his heart.

From that moment on, the days of peaceful wanderings were over, and Kazuha's life became an unending series of battles.

Kazuha did not fear battle, of course, but the constant fighting left him feeling lost and perplexed.

He did not regret having set out on his doomed rescue mission, nor did he begrudge his friend for leaving him, but he could not help but think...

"Is this endless conflict truly the only way to assert one's ideals?"
Character Story 5
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
The Crux Fleet became Kazuha's new home, and he drifted on the ocean wherever it took him.

Trouble still found him from time to time, but no issue was insurmountable with the support of the Crux crew.

From his vantage point on the Alcor's crow's nest, gazing out at the azure sea and sky, he finally had the space to think over the tumultuous events of his past and what it all meant to him.

"Every samurai wishes to live their life with passion and to claim the greatest reputation possible using the sword in their hands."

"But there will always be those whose base desires lead them astray from the path of justice and virtue, and whose blades leave an endless trail of enmity in their wake."

"Surely the heavens did not give us fleshly forms and the gods did not watch over our lives all so that we might take up arms against one another."

"Then, this sword I wield is not meant to slay, but to save..."

"Yes, this shall be my path as a samurai, and I shall defend it all my days."

As he reached the conclusion of his thoughts, Kazuha was suddenly inspired to pen down a few verses to serve as a maxim for himself thereafter... but before he could get started, he was interrupted by an irate voice from down below:

"Hey, Kazuha, quit gawking at the sky — get down here and lend a hand!"

It seemed the maxim would have to wait for another day. Whatever the helmsman, Sea Drake, needed help with clearly couldn't wait.
Vision Shell
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 4
Kazuha was just as surprised as everybody else when the Vision briefly lit up during that great battle.

For in all the time that he had spent searching high and low trying to find someone who might rekindle it, never had he imagined that he could be the one to cause its light to shine once more. It was almost as if his late friend were lending him his aid from behind the scenes.

This empty shell of a Vision not only proved this, but had also brought him many fateful encounters along the way:

He had been aided by the resistance, saved and taken in by Captain Beidou, and he had even met the fabled Traveler...

In life there were seasons of hopelessness and desperation, but there were also moments of great serendipity.

His journey was like the rise and fall of a mountain path — at times, the struggle was all but too much to bear, but there would always be moments when he would touch the clouds.
Vision
Unlock ConditionUnlocks at Friendship Lv. 6
The morning mist covered the mountains like a blanket as Kazuha trod a small trail alone.

The world was silent. Not a single feather flapped, and not a single cicada sang.

Even the roiling waves seemed to have fallen into slumber, leaving just the faint whisper of the wind audible against the silence. Kazuha stuck out his tongue — the air tasted heavy and gloomy.

This told him that it would soon rain.

He peered into the distance and spotted a plume of smoke up ahead. Below it were several straw huts. Tonight, it seemed, he would have a roof over his head.

He informed the owner of the house that a storm was coming. At first, he was met with skepticism, but come noon the rains arrived right on cue.

In awe of this wanderer's skill, the master of the house eagerly offered him lodging.

The storm raged into the night. Kazuha held his quilt close, and as he listened to the onslaught of rain against the autumn leaves, his mind began to wander.

In the time since the Kaedehara Clan's fortune had faded away and he had set off on his journey, Kazuha had traveled across many of Inazuma's islands and had become intimately acquainted with the plight of the wanderer.

Moving between islands usually necessitated traveling by sea. Kazuha would make these trips alone, in a small, slow boat, making things all the more perilous when he had to battle against strong headwinds or violent thunderstorms...

And yet, there was limitless fascination to be found in this same journey of his, where the vast sky and boundless earth was his home, and all living things that inhabited them were his friends.

If one's heart is empty, all under heaven is empty.

But if one's heart is pure, all under heaven is pure.

With his sword in his hand and his chosen path in his heart, he could go on his way with a song on his lips and with nothing to fear, no matter the perils he may face.

Kazuha slept soundly that night, his mind at rest having made peace with his feelings.

The next day, he awoke to the sound of birds... and a shining Vision lying upon his chest.

    From what i’ve noticed, his plunge after his E seems to favor elements he has on him rather then the ones he swirled so things such as Bennett’s Ult will almost always force a pryo plunge

      that’s because elements themselves have the priority of pyro > hydro > electro > cryo. you will always absorb pyro with bennett because pyro has the highest priority.

    I don’t know why people keep posting their convoluted whale setups, these don’t mean anything to the vast majority of players. Your 400k Melt means almost nothing to most people, the fact that Kazuha can do 50-100k damage every 6 seconds very easily with not much investment, with his E Skill alone, is what makes him really good. The on-demand suction effect is also very useful.

    People don’t seem to realize how hard his E Skill hits. I was able to take about 80% of 1st form Childe’s HP in one Electro-shock infused Swirl with his E-Skill. Extremely easy to setup and use and whales can probably do even more. Even better is that his E-Skill has an extremely short CD, comes out fast, and avoid some forms of damage since he jumps up.

    His E Skill does the E Skill damage, the plunge damage, 200% extra Elemental damage, 2 Swirls, and whatever reactions the 2 Swirls trigger. I once had a Swirl-infused Overload hit for almost 20k. Electro-charge is probably better though, it’s easier to trigger and can trigger twice.

    he isn’t a must pull. but he is worth the pull. he can do what sucrose and venti can, and isn’t just their sidegrade. that’s because he can also do something that the other two can’t. i think that’s balance enough. he made ganyu melt good, helped keqing, helped mono element teams and freeze teams, while he also made new team compositions. not to mention he synergizes well with the new inazuma characters. from him, ayaka, and yoimiya, he seems to be the most worth it pull. don’t get me wrong, ayaka is my favorite gi character, she’s really good but she’s only a dps (i love her for her personality though) kazuha can function as a support, sub dps, main dps however you want to build him.

    all anemo characters are really good. i hope sayu is, too.

        Yeah Tartaglia just be Mr. World Wide, which is understandable since his region isn’t out yet.

      Yup, I’m sure they will be crying for rerun just like Albedo now.

      I don’t even need a main dps with him, can clear Abyss 12th in seconds with his team, he is super versatile and useful. Great Sub-DPS/Buffer and works pretty well in quick-swap teams or just give one element to him and he makes the job

      Great duo with Albedo and one element guy for shield particules everytime and extra sub-damage.
