All playable characters in Honkai: Star Rail, listed

Honkai Star Rail

Here’s everyone that can party up

Honkai: Star Rail has many different fighters you can add to the Trailblazer’s travelling crew. From snipers to scrappers, everyone’s got their own talents they bring to the table.

Still, with how many different options there are, it can be hard to keep track. Not to fret, though: we’re compiling a list here of everyone you can add to your team.

We’ll sort them out by updates and make note of when new characters are added over time. Considering Honkai: Star Rail is a live service free-to-play game, similar to Genshin Impact and others, you can absolutely expect more characters to arrive after launch.

For newcomers, there’s some terminology to cover:

  • Paths are attributes that are roughly similar to classes. Those like Destruction, Hunt, and Erudition are more damage-oriented, while Abundance, Preservation, Harmony, and Nihility are on the support side.
  • Elements give characters particular debuffs or effects they can apply. These are Fire, Ice, Lightning, Wind, Physical, Imaginary, and Quantum.
  • Stars determine rarity. Four-star characters are more common, while five-star characters are considered rarer and, sometimes, of higher value.
