His title is "Scarlet Leaves Pursue Wild Waves," which matches his skillsets and looks, for he has a red streak of hairline on his right side.

Kazuha's Elemental Skill is Chihayaburu. He pulls object towards his current position before launching opponents with the Area of Effect, dealing Anemo damage and lifting Kazuha into the air. While in mid-air, he can unleash a particularly powerful Plunging Attack, Midair Razan, that does Anemo damage and will create a miniature wind tunnel that pulls nearby objects and opponents in. The tap effect of Kazuha’s Elemental Skill can also be used mid-air. If you hold his Elemental Skill longer, it charges up to unleash greater Anemo damage over a large AoE.

Kazuha's Elemental Burst skill is Kazuha Slash. With a single slash, Kazuha deals AoE anemo damage and his blade's passage will leave behind a field named "Autumn Whirlwind," as you can see in the photo above. Autumn Whirlwind will deal AoE Anemo damage as set intervals to opponents within in.

Here are the rest of his passives that you will have to unlock.

  • 1st Ascension passive: Poetics of Fuubutsu- Grants teammates an Elemental damage bonus to their corresponding element upon trigger a swirl reaction
  • 4th  Ascension passive: Soumon Swordmanship- when his elemental skill comes into contact with any of the other elements, Elemental Absorption will occur and kazuha Plunging Attack will deal additional damage of that elemental type by a certain percentage
  • Utility Passive: Cloud Strider- decreases sprinting Stamina consumption for his party members

Based on these skills, Kazuha will be an excellent utility support. His passive provides a great amount of Elemental burst damage that is useful for area-of-effect damage dealers.
