What is Ruan Mei’s element and path?

We now know that Ruan Mei is a five-star ice character who treads the path of the Harmony. We don’t know the specifics of her kit just yet, but as a follower of the Harmony, we know that her moveset will focus on applying buffs to her teammates. Other Harmony characters include:

All of these characters, as well as being strong boss ladies in the game’s plot, balance buffing their teammates with dealing a respectable amount of personal damage themselves, so we imagine that Ruan Mei’s kit will follow a similar theme.

Who is Ruan Mei?

Ruan Mei is another member of Nous’ Genius Society alongside Honkai Star Rail’s Herta and Honkai Star Rail’s Screwllum, specializing in biological sciences. She reportedly piqued Nous’ interest thanks to her “talent and terrifying perseverance” and she focuses her research on the origins of all life.

While she may be a genius, she’s also extremely elegant and sweet-tempered, reminding us a little bit of Genshin Impact’s Ningguang. Ruan Mei played a part in developing the Honkai Star Rail Simulated Universe alongside Screwllum, Herta, and Stephen, but science isn’t the sole focus of her life. She secretly loves traditional theater, desserts, and delicate embroidery.
