Honkai Star Rail’s Jiaoqiu is a dashing specimen and is set to make his way into Hoyoverse’s game soon as a five-star healer, following the path of Nihility. While we eagerly wait for more information on him, here’s everything we know about his release date, build, and who voices him.

If you’re planning on saving for Jiaoqiu like we are, grab all the new Honkai Star Rail codes to fill your wallet with jades. Then, take a look at the next Honkai Star Rail update and Honkai Star Rail banner to see what’s going on in the game.

Finally, we get a male foxian character to balance out Honkai Star Rail’s Tingyun and Honkai Star Rail’s Yukong. Jiaoqiu is a healer and chef from the Xianzhou Yaoqing but is cunning behind his smile. His family is well known in the Alchemy Commission, and Jiaoqiu has ties to General Feixiao, a character whose name recently cropped up in Star Rail’s lore, so there may be ties between them in-game.

Jiaoqiu is particularly interested in prescribing spicy foods as curative medicines, which fits well with his use of the fire element and flame-filled drip marketing artwork.

Jiaoqiu release date speculation

Following Honkai Star Rail’s usual pattern of drip marketing and then releasing characters, it’s safe to say that Jiaoqiu releases in version 2.4. He’s likely to be in the second phase as he got a reveal after Honkai Star Rail’s Yunli.

What do we know about Jiaoqiu’s build?

While we’ve not come across Jiaoqiu in the game, his drip marketing gives us a look at what we can expect from his kit. He’s a five-star character, using the fire element, and follows the path of Nihility. What’s interesting, though, is that he’s a healer.

Whether this means he provides healing over time like the Nihility’s damage over time specialty, we’re not sure yet, but we are sure that he’s gonna slot in perfectly on all your Honkai Star Rail Acheron and Honkai Star Rail Kafka teams.

Who are Jiaoqiu’s voice actors?

You may recognize Jiaoqiu’s voice when he appears in-game – his English voice actor is none other than Mark Whitten, also known as Genshin Impact’s Kazuha. His Japanese voice actor is Toyonaga Toshiyuki, who plays Seiji in the upcoming Persona 5: The Phantom X and has credits in Fire Emblem titles.

The Xianzhou Luofu is eagerly waiting to welcome us back, so why not turn your attention to characters like Honkai Star Rail’s Bailu, Honkai Star Rail’s Jing Yuan, and Honkai Star Rail’s Yanqing?
