All Honkai: Star Rail characters

Check out all Honkai: Star Rail characters, their Paths, English VAs, and more
HoYoverse

Honkai: Star Rail, the newest adventure from the makers of Genshin Impact, is finally out and has a brilliant cast of characters in store for you. You may recognize some of them from prior Honkai titles, as HoYoverse always likes to include a few fan favorites to reinforce the parallel universe theme the studio’s games have going on, but there are plenty of fresh additions, too.

You build teams of four characters in Honkai: Star Rail to go on your trailblazing expeditions, combining their Paths and Damage Types to build an effective crew. Each figure has their own unique backstory and personality, which you’ll learn more about as you adventure with them.

You gain some characters for free by simply playing through the story and engaging with the game’s modes, but most of them are only available through the title’s gacha system – this is similar to the one in Genshin Impact. While that means it’s pretty fair by gacha standards, it requires you to rely on your luck to get the characters you want despite possibly investing real money into the game. It’s completely possible to play the game entirely for free, though, and obtaining in-game currency simply by playing or taking advantage of redemption codes will net you a good amount of characters eventually.

Here are all Honkai: Star Rail characters with their Paths, Damage Types, and English VAs.
