The Honkai: Star Rail 1.5 banners will feature three brand-new playable characters for the game: Huohuo, a possessed girl afraid of ghosts, and Argenti, a chivalrous warrior from the Knights of Beauty, are the upcoming 5-Star characters, while Hanya, a judge of the Ten-Lords Commission, is the fresh 4-Star character.

Argenti is classified as following the Path of The Erudition and deals Physical Damage. His role is spoken by Adam Michael Gold, who also voices Tail, the spirit possessing Huohuo.

You may already know Argenti from the Knights of Beauty event in the Simulated Universe.

Here’s the official description accompanying Argenti’s announcement:

"May this rose convey my heartfelt salutations."

A classic knight of the Knights of Beauty. Forthright and candid, this noble and admirable man wanders the cosmos alone, resolutely following the Path of Beauty. Upholding the good name of Beauty is Argenti's duty. To fulfill this responsibility, one must be pious when one initiates battle, and one must make their opponent yield willingly when one strikes with one's spear.

Hanya has been revealed as the sister of Xueyi, another member of the Ten-Lords Commission whose face we already know from the story arc on the Xianzhou Luofu and who’ll very likely be playable in the future as well. She follows The Harmony and deals Physical Damage as well.

Hanya's fate seems to be a tough one due to her abilities.

This is her official description from the announcement:

"Using dreams to analyze the sins of the mara-struck is like touching a vine with thorns — it doesn't hurt as much when your fingers become numb."

One of the judges of the Ten-Lords Commission. Of the four duties of a judge (detention, imprisonment, punishment, and interrogation), Hanya is charged with the last task. She specializes in reading the karma and sins of criminals, and records their crimes and punishments with the Oracle Brush. As she spends her days using dreams to predict karmic offenses and has to endure the torrential flood of information regarding the mara-strucks' actions, she has long become dull to all things in the world. Only when she operates with her sister and fellow judge, Xueyi, will Hanya momentarily reveal her true nature.

Hanya is voiced by Suzie Yeung, who’ll be familiar to the HoYoverse crowd thanks to her role as Eula in Genshin Impact.

Before these upcoming Honkai: Star Rail characters join the fun, Jingliu, Topaz, and Guinaifen will make their debuts in update 1.4. The Honkai: Star Rail 1.4 livestream will reveal more on this version.
