Upcoming Honkai Star Rail Characters - New 5-Star Characters:

Five new 5-star characters are expected to appear in Honkai Star Rail in the upcoming 2.x editions, based on the leaks. They are

  1. Black Swan
  2. Sparkle
  3. Robin
  4. Aventurine
  5. Acheron

While Black Swan and Sparkle were previously hinted at, the addition of Robin, Aventurine, and Acheron has caught players' interest. Players can expect these characters to join the roster after the HSR 1.6 banner following Ruan Mei and Dr. Ratio's release.

Honkai Star Rail Black Swan

Black Swan is portrayed as a Memokeeper at the Garden of Recollection and a strange soothsayer. Though nobody around her knows why, she seems to like collecting strange memories. Based on leaks, she is a 5-star Wind character who travels the Nihility Path. The leak claims that Black Swan's skill will deliver Wind DMG equivalent to 60% of her attack and will reduce an opponent's defense by 27% for a maximum of three rounds. This suggests that Black Swan may be a very effective debuff in battle.

Honkai Star Rail Sparkle

Another 5-Star character, Sparkle deals Quantum Damage and is a support unit, boosting the other top DPS heroes, since she travels the Path of The Harmony. A member of Aha the Elation's followers, the Masked Fools, Sparkle is a maestro of theater. She is recognized for having several faces and owning numerous masks. She is attempting to join the Genius Society and has an interest in entertainment.

Honkai Star Rail Robin

Robin is a character with a lighter and more refined look. Robin's outfit of deep blue and white goes well with her Cerulean hair hue. Her outfit is refined with the addition of earrings and a bracelet. Details about Robin's release version and her place in the game's narrative are unknown, despite the visual information made available by these leaks. She is a Harmony unit from the Physical element, according to leaks, though no concrete details have been disclosed.

Honkai Star Rail Aventurine

Aventurine is a Preservation Path member and a 5-star Imaginary character. Although his lore is unknown, we do know that he concentrates on using damage-sponging shields to defend his friends. Without going into too much detail, you will find that Aventurine is a great Tank unit that can provide friends shields in the form of suits that endure for several turns. He can also reuse his talent to buff himself again with greater DEF and other attributes.

Honkai Star Rail Acheron

We received a first glimpse at Penacony, the next stop on the Honkai Star Rail, and one of its forthcoming characters, "Acheron." Players noticed right away that Acheron resembles both Raiden Shogun from Genshin Impact and Raiden Mei from Honkai Impact 3rd. She is a 5-star Lightning character on the Path of The Nihility, based on leaks. Though not much is known about his past, some have suggested that she might be the reincarnation of Honkai Impact 3rd character The Herrscher of Thunder.

Upcoming HSR characters: New 4-Star Characters

Three new 4-star characters, Misha, Firefly, and Gallagher, are also hinted to be joining the HoYoverse following the HSR 1.6 banner, in addition to the five-star characters already present.

Honkai Star Rail Misha

With the HSR 2.0 banner release comes Misha, a new 4-Star character. He takes The Destruction's Path and deals Ice Damage. He is a charming and considerate bellhop at The Reverie Hotel who aspires to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and become an intergalactic explorer—another exciting person. We now know who to ask for rumors when we arrive in Penacony since in addition to being a diligent worker and proficient machine operator, he also enjoys "sharing interstellar rumors with guests."

Honkai Star Rail Firefly

Leaks states that Firefly in Honkai Star Rail is a 4-star Fire character who follows Path of Destruction and is a member of the Stellarion Hunters. There are rumors that she is Sam's pilot, a well-known Stellarion Hunters squad. A weak little girl, she sets out on a cosmic quest across the Milky Way to discover the purpose of life. Soft hues, such as delicate blues and greens, are used in Firefly's design. Her silver hair with blue ends completes the ensemble.

Honkai Star Rail Gallagher

At last, a mystery figure named Gallagher will also make an appearance in the game at some point. It's safe to assume that Gallagher has a depressing appearance and a long history of suffering. Some of his body is scarred, which may provide information about his past. Moreover, he appears older than a lot of the male characters in Honkai: Star Rail. It is said that he is collaborating on something for Sunday, another playable character whose release date is still unclear.
