Layla is a playable Cryo character in Genshin Impact.

She is a student in the Rtawahist Darshan, specializing in Theoretical Astrology. Chronically sleep-deprived and of poor health as a result, Layla believes that "The Stars' Blessing" is the reason she wakes from sleepwalking to find her papers fully completed.
