We all know that Hoyoverse loves a purple-haired lady with a sword, so here comes Honkai Star Rail’s Acheron. This beautiful warrior is a member of the Galaxy Rangers, traveling the cosmos and upholding justice in the name of Lan, the Aeon of The Hunt. Find out what we know about her so far below.

Honkai Star Rail Acheron release date speculation

We believe Honkai Star Rail’s Acheron will join the character warp in version 2.1. Hoyoverse drip-marketed her on Twitter alongside Honkai Star Rail’s Aventurine and Honkai Star Rail’s Gallagher.

You can see Acheron bravely wielding her lightning sword in the official version 2.0 music video, so we reckon we’ll get a chance to learn more about her before her banner goes live.

Who is Honkai Star Rail’s Acheron?

Acheron is a member of the Galaxy Rangers who arrives on Penacony for the Charmony Festival. We don’t know much about this mysterious woman, but she seems to look a lot like Genshin Impact’s Raiden Shogun and popular Honkai Impact character Raiden Mei.

The Galaxy Rangers are a group of heroes who follow the Aeon Lan of The Hunt, traveling from planet to planet, assisting the locals in delivering justice, and hunting down evil. People have barely heard from them since they reportedly got on the wrong side of Genius Society member 64, Dr. Primitive, until now.

What do we know about Acheron’s build?

Thanks to her drip marketing, we now know that Acheron wields the power of lightning and follows the path of Nihility, despite her commitment to Lan’s Galaxy Rangers. Given her sword fighting skills and lone ranger vibe, we’re confident that she’ll act as a main lightning DPS.

Nihility characters specialize in dealing debuffs to the enemy, so her kit will likely follow this theme. Other Nihility characters include fellow lightning lady Honkai Star Rail’s Kafka and the upcoming fortune teller Honkai Star Rail’s Black Swan.

Who are Acheron’s voice actors?

Acheron’s English voice actor is Allegra Clark, who also voices Genshin Impact’s Beidou and the warrior in Silent Hope. Her Japanese voice actor is Miyuki Sawashiro, who also voices the Raiden Shogun and her twin sister in Genshin Impact, as well as Cookie Run: Kingdom’s wizard cookie and Mirei Mikagura in Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth.

Acheron’s Chinese voice actor is Ju Huahua, who also voices both Raiden Mei and the Raiden Shogun, further continuing the links to Hoyoverse’s powerful purple ladies. Her Korean voice actor, Park Ji-yoon, voices the Raiden Shogun in Genshin Impact’s Korean dub, as well as Cookie Run: Kingdom’s parfait cookie.

That’s everything we know so far about Honkai Star Rail’s Acheron. We’ve also got a whole suite of useful build guides for the residents of Teyvat, so why not head over to our Genshin Impact’s Cyno, Genshin Impact’s Amber, or Genshin Impact’s Noelle guides next?
