She’s spent the last 100 years in a sort of stasis after being exposed to the Scarlet King’s power and reliving Sumeru’s past. With that spell broken, she’s ready to get back to work as a professor of the Haravatat Darshan, although her time away from academia means most of her students find her more than a little old-fashioned.
