Japanese native Yoru rips holes straight through reality to infiltrate enemy lines unseen. Using deception and aggression in equal measure, he gets the drop on each target before they know where to look.
We also got another first look at Yoru in the Episode 2 cinematic trailer, showing Phoenix and Yoru working together.

VALORANT developer John “Riot MEMEMEMEME” Goscicki gives us more insight to what Riot’s goals were when designing Yoru. “The idea of “Stealthy Infiltration” is something we toyed around with for years, but could never fit in the game. We felt that if we started from the ground up, we could create an Agent that revolved around the idea of “Stealthy Infiltration” in some way.”
