Honkai Star Rail’s newest Drip Marketing campaign revealed 3 new characters just a day before the HSR 2.0 livestream. While it is not official that these 3 characters will be in the 2.1 banners, the norm suggests that they will. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming three new characters in Honkai Star Rail 2.1.

Honkai Star Rail: Acheron

Acheron is a 5-star Nihility character, with the Quantum damage type and a DPS-focused kit. She is going to be the first character with 0 Energy. Her Ultimate doesn’t use energy like every other character in the game, instead, it uses a different recharge mechanic. She is also an emanator of Nihility.

Lore-wise, Acheron’s true name is unknown but she calls herself the Galaxy Ranger. She walks the cosmos alone with her sword and is described as aloof and taciturn. She mainly strikes with her scabbard, never drawing her Sword free.

Honkai Star Rail: Aventurine

Aventurine is a 5-star Preservation character with the Imaginary Damage type. He is going to be an offensive Preservation character, with Follow-up counterattacks like March 7th. His Skill is also leaked to provide shields to all allies based on his Defense stat.

Lore-wise, he is a senior manager in the IPC Strategic Investment Department and one of the Ten Stonehearts. He possesses an air of frivolity and doesn’t shy away from taking risks. Aventurine considers exploitation and treachery as simply tools of trade, so expect another Sampo in Penacony.

Aventurine is described as a guy who views life as a high-stakes, high-return investment, and he plays this particular gamble with masterful ease.

Honkai Star Rail: Gallagher

Gallagher is a 4-star Abundance character with the Fire damage type, and he scales off on Attack instead of HP. He is going to have a strong offensive kit, paired with his healing kit, with debuffs increasing Break Effect damage and delaying enemy attacks. Gallagher’s kit looks quite strong for a 4-star healer and might make him feature in the top ranks of the Honkai Star Rail character tier list after his release.

Lore-wise, he is a security officer of the Bloodhound Family at Penacony. Described as a Slovenly and Indolent mixologist, he is always courteous towards guests. Despite that, he is always courteous towards guests and always keeps his vigilance about him.
