Three new playable characters will join the game - Dan Heng • Imbibitor Lunae, Fuxuan, and Lynx. The trio presents a nice balance of a DPS, tank, and a Healer in the game. 

Dan Heng gets the Imbibitor Lunae title in the Vidyadhara high elder succession. The title once belonged to Dan Heng’s previous incarnation, Dan Feng, a member of the High-Cloud Quintet.

Dan Heng consumes skill points to unlock powerful abilities and for players, this gives them an opportunity to enhance their basic attack to 3x. His ultimate deals imaginary damage to a single enemy as well as adjacent characters.

Lynx comes from the Landau family and is a four-star character in Honkai Star Rail.She brings several healing abilities that power her teammates as a Quantum Character using the path of Abundance.

Her fascination for the outside world comes from her upbringing and her strong connection with Jarilo-VI’s story, her teachers, and just in general the Landau family history. It was this fascination with the outside world that prompted her to venture out into the snow and test her survival skills.
