HoYoVerse teases new characters ahead of Honkai Star Rail 1.2 update reveal

The next major update for Honkai Star Rail is coming soon, and developer HoYoVerse is ramping up its promotional efforts ahead of a full reveal.

Via its official social media channels, HoYoVerse unveiled three new characters expected to debut in the Honkai Star Rail version 1.2 update. The three characters are Lynx, Fu Xuan, and Imbibitor Lunae. What role they'll play in the update, which is formally titled "Even Immortality Ends", will likely be revealed during a live stream event scheduled for July 8, 2023.

Lynx is a new 4-Star unit, a Quantum-element character on the Abundance path, making her a healer alongside Natasha, Bailu, and the recently-introduced Luocha. Lynx is actually the youngest of the Landau siblings, and is Serval and Gepard's sister. She serves as an explorer for the city of Belobog on Jarilo-VI.

Fu Xuan is a 5-Star Quantum-element Preservation character, and is the Master Diviner of the Xianzhou Alliance's Divination Commission. She helps navigate the Xianzhou Luofu and first appeared in a 2022 trailer for the game

Imbibitor Lunae is a 5-Star Imaginary-element character on the Destruction path, and is the fourth Imaginary-element character to be added to the game, after Yukong and Luocha joined in update 1.1. "Imbibitor Lunae" is actually his title as the High Elder of the Xianzhou Luofu. He guards the Ambrosial Arbor, an artifact granted to the Luofu by Yaoshi, the Aeon of Abundance. Its fruits were once the source of the immortality experienced by many inhabitants of the Luofu.

Honkai Star Rail is available on PC, iOS, and Android, with a PS5 version debuting in Q4 2023.
