Firefly is one of Honkai Star Rail NPCs, and very little is known about her. She has been featured in the latest trailer — Sweet Dreams Preview and appears to be taking photos with the trailblazer.

Akash is another member of the Ever-Flame Mansion Family and features a cool violin. Duke Inferno mentions lighting a fire in his eyes and showing him the music of the strings. He is tasked to “Serenade the celebration and hush the Harmony into muted awe” by Duke Inferno, which likely means the celebration of the Charmony Festival held by The Family.
