For those new to the game, Raiden Shogun, also known as Baal and the God of Eternity, is currently the Electro Archon, among the seven archons, who rules over the in-game nation of Inazuma.

She’s indeed a major character whom Yatco, who’s voiced a number of characters in animated productions, deserves to lend her voice to.
