Who is Honkai Star Rail’s Pela?

Honkai Star Rail’s Pela is the meticulous Intelligence Officer of the Silvermane Guards. Don’t let her youthful appearance fool you. She’s undeniably brilliant, and can answer any problems with calm certainty – whether it’s manoeuvring troops, distributing supplies, or charting the terrain. However, a cursory glance at her phone case and a fleeting visit past the local magazine stand may reveal a few details about her surprising ‘hobby’ that she indulges in during her spare time. Don’t judge her. Fan fiction can be cool, okay?

Pela is a four-star ice wielder who treads the path of the Nihility. Her English voice actor is Xanthe Huynh, and her Japanese voice actor is Morohoshi Sumire.

What’s the best Honkai Star Rail Pela build?

Pela’s attacks dish out plenty of ice damage, but the debuffs she applies are where she really shines. Not only is she capable of freezing enemies, but her skill also applies weaken, which reduces the damage dealt by the enemy, and her ultimate lowers her target’s defence, allowing both Pela and the rest of her team to swoop in and finish them off. To sweeten the deal, her passive sees her gain additional energy when her attacks inflict debuffs on enemies.

Pela works well as a sub-DPS alongside another strong damage dealer that can make the most of the debuffs she inflicts. When building her, we recommend increasing her ice damage, attack, and energy restoration where possible.
