Nahida is a 5-star playable Catalyst Dendro character in Genshin Impact.
She is the vessel of Buer, as Lesser Lord Kusanali, the current Dendro Archon. Having been freed from her extensive confinement in the Sanctuary of Surasthana, she now strives to have a stronger presence in Sumeru.

Enters Aiming Mode, which will allow you to select a limited number of opponents within a limited area. During this time, Nahida's resistance to interruption will be increased.
When released, this skill deals Dendro DMG to these opponents and marks them with the Seed of Skandha.
Aiming Mode will last up to 5s and can select a maximum of 8 opponents.
Seed of Skandha
Opponents who have been marked by the Seed of Skandha will be linked to one another up till a certain distance.
After you trigger Elemental Reactions on opponents who are affected by the Seeds of Skandha or when they take DMG from Dendro Cores (including Burgeon and Hyperbloom DMG), Nahida will unleash Tri-Karma Purification on the opponents and all connected opponents, dealing Dendro DMG based on her ATK and Elemental Mastery.

- Electro: While Nahida remains within the Shrine of Maya, the interval between each Tri-Karma Purification from "All Schemes to Know" is decreased.

Even if Nahida is not on the field, these bonuses will still take effect so long as party members are within the Shrine of Maya.

When the Traveler and Paimon (Genshin Impact) first meet Nahida in the Sabzeruz Festival samsara, she was an elusive and secretive individual. She voluntarily left ruling the city to the sages, though like in cases with the samsara, she would intervene as best she could if they stepped out of line. She also suffered from very low self-esteem as a result of the way the sages treated her. However after the downfall of the sages and the cleansing of Irminsul, many of these traits have minimized or vanished. She now openly wanders around the city, when she has time, and interacts with her people and has an overall far more genuinely cheerful view of herself.
Despite her previously difficult circumstances, when she spoke to people she rarely revealed her sadness. Then and now she almost always maintains a gentle and kind demeanour when she speaks to others, and treats everyone as equals. However she also admits that her social skills and understanding of human interaction needs work, and she's prone to slightly eccentric speech and behaviour as a result. She also professes a fondness for analogies and frequently makes use of them when attempting to explain things to others. Like many in Sumeru, she believes in helping people come to answers on their own, particularly regarding heavier truths, rather than providing all the answers. As a result she's also prone to peppering her speech with a mixture of analogies and subtle clues about things she wants others to learn.
As the God of Wisdom, however, Nahida's most notable traits are her exceptional intelligence, knowledge, and planning. She's capable of creating extremely thorough, multi-layered plans and can even be a little manipulative if the situation calls for it. She's also capable of making plans in a pinch, as shown when she bartered with Dottore (Genshin Impact). Perhaps most of all, Nahida is skilled at realizing when her intelligence is required and when her kindness is required, or both.
Commenting on a god might be overstepping my position a little... But when I was working with her, I personally witnessed her wisdom, courage, and determination. Compared with those sages who constantly undermined and criticized her without a shred of evidence, I think I can provide a more reliable assessment: She is an exceptional deity who is worthy of everyone's respect.
I'm going to turn in early tonight, hope I can actually get to sleep... Dear Mighty God of Wisdom, please bless my slumber, I pray. Okay. Closing my eyes now.
Lesser Lord Kusanali. I'd love to hear her thoughts on my Dance of Sabzeruz... Oh, no, no, forget it... If she were in the audience, I'd get stage fright...
Lesser Lord Kusanali.
Paimon: Back in Liyue and Inazuma, people were pretty enthusiastic about Rex Lapis and the Almighty Shogun.
Paimon: Those strange scholars are one thing, but even everyone living downtown only ever seems to talk about Greater Lord Rukkhadevata.
(Traveler): Yeah. (And/That's true... Even) the most delicious mushrooms are said to be Greater Lord Rukkhadevata's blessing.
Paimon: Speaking of which, lots of the dishes in Liyue are said to have been taught and approved by Rex Lapis himself...
Paimon: Aha! So as long as a god blesses their people with delicious food, people will worship them!
(Traveler): Hehe, if their name is Paimon, sure.
Paimon: Huh? Wait, so... (Traveler), what do you believe in, then?
(Traveler): Me? Hmm... Paimon, of course.
Paimon: Heehee, that's right!
It's a pity that Lesser Lord Kusanali already forced him to erase so many of his segments. The joy I would have derived from slicing them apart one by one...
