Second guess what you see or he’ll drop you, lowkey. 

Yoru lets you blindside enemies with the ability to tear into reality, crash the enemy position with a teleport tether, and fakeout clueless foes. The deception and aggression pays off with a drift between dimensions.

See the complete kit at Yoru’s Agent page.
