Huohuo is one of the most anticipated characters on the horizon for Honkai Star Rail, and for good reason. This adorable little Foxian girl is a ghost hunter with a serious fear of the supernatural. Unfortunately for her, she attracts inhuman beings because of a creature called a heliobus that is sealed in her tail, giving it a flame-like appearance. Huohuo has one of the most interesting designs in all of Honkai Star Rail and her kit is super useful for any and all team compositions, so here’s what you need to know about this adorable upcoming 5-Star character.

Who is Huohuo?

Huohuo is a 5-Star Wind character on the Path of Abundance. She’s a Ten-Lords Commission Judge-in-Training who is tasked with capturing ghosts and supernatural spirits. She has a firey tail inhabited by a spirit (aptly named Tail) that makes her a “cursed one” that attracts supernatural beings. Because of her affliction, she’s the one that the Xianzhou Luofu tasks with eradicating spirits and inhuman entities.

Her English voice actor is Courtney Lin, best known for her performances as Draculaura in Monster High and Neon Violet in Neon White. There’s a second voice actor associated with Huohuo as well, Adam Michael Gold (who had roles in Remnant 2 and Hogwarts Legacy), which means Tail will likely be voiced as well.

Huohuo Release Date

While there isn’t an exact release date for Huohuo or the Huohuo banner in Honkai Star Rail just yet, she’s likely coming in Version 1.5 which is slated for the end of November 2023. Since Jingliu and Topaz and Numby are the new featured 5-Star characters coming in Version 1.4 and Huohuo was the next to be officially revealed, it’s safe to assume that she will be the headliner for the Version 1.5 update.
