Two New Honkai Star Rail Characters Announced - Gallagher and Acheron

25 Jan 2024

Hoyoverse has just announced a new character in Honkai Star Rail named Gallagher.

“A security officer of the Bloodhound Family at Penacony. He is also a slovenly and indolent mixologist. Though unorganized in apparel and casual in how he makes his drinks, he is always courteous toward guests but keeps his vigilance about him. He seems to be a character with a complicated past, yet never actively mentions any details.”


In terms of lore, we don’t know much about him, outside of being staff at Penacony and being characterized as having a “go-with-the-flow” personality. However, he will be the first fire combat type character in the Abundance path that can be added to your roster. He will be the sixth Abundance character released.

Hoyoverse also announced a lightning nihility character, Acheron.

A drifter claiming to be a Galaxy Ranger. Her true name is unknown, and she walks the cosmos alone, carrying with her a long sword. Though aloof and taciturn, her blade flicks out like lashing lightning. And yet, she always strikes with her scabbard, never drawing the sword free.


We don’t know much about this character lore wise as well, but in terms of in-game function, she will be the second five-star limited lightning Nihility character released, with the first limited playable character with the same path and element being the Stellaron Hunter Kafka.
