Today Honkai: Star Rail developer HoYoverse revealed another character that will become playable down the line as part of the popular RPG's gacha.
His name is Argenti and he's a five-star physical character following the path of Erudition.
He appears to be part of an order called the "Knights of Beauty" and he certainly looks the part. I feel like there may be some Saint Seiya inspiration here, but there's no way to know for sure.
Just take a look at what he looks like below.
Here's how he's officially described.
"Extraterrestrial Satellite Communication" Argenti
"May this rose convey my heartfelt salutations." A classic knight of the Knights of Beauty. Forthright and candid, this noble and admirable man wanders the cosmos alone, resolutely following the Path of Beauty.
Upholding the good name of Beauty is Argenti's duty. To fulfill this responsibility, one's must be pious when one initiates battle, and one must make their opponent yield willingly when one strikes with one's spear.
He's voiced in English by Adam Michael Gold and in Japanese by Shinnosuke Tachibana, whom you may know as Alphinaud in Final Fantasy XIV.
He's likely not going to be introduced in the next update 1.4, which will likely have Jingliu, Topaz, and Guinaifen and will be fully revealed on Friday.
If HoYoverse's modus operandi is any indication, he's coming in version 1.5 alongside Huohuo and another 4-star new character who will be revealed tomorrow.
Honkai: Star Rail is currently available for PC, iOS, and Android, while a PS5 version will release on October 11, 2023.
