She heals, and more.
The Valorant Twitter page has released a small gameplay preview of one of its characters, the Chinese support hero Sage.

Through the use of orbs, Sage can heal allies from afar, and create an ice barrier to block chokepoints or elevate herself. She can also cover an area in ice, which slows enemy movement. “I am not just your healer!” she declares.
Her ultimate isn’t shown in the teaser, but a leaked image from a month back revealed that her ultimate was called Resurrection. I can’t help but think that she’s a bit like Mercy, Mei, and Zenyatta (because of the orbs) rolled into one.
