HoYoVerse Explained What a Honkai: Star Rail Emanator Is

The idea of an Emanator character has come up in Honkai: Star Rail since launch, and HoYoVerse explained what one is and how a person becomes one. It also listed a few of the known and established Emanators in the world, though nothing was spoiled when that happened.

In short, an Emanator in Honkai: Star Rail is an emissary of an Aeon who can tap into their powers and be stronger than usual, even though they started out as an otherwise ordinary person. How someone becomes one varies based on the Aeon and their personality, which determines if they pick one, make it happen, or just don’t even influence if someone does or doesn’t become one. 

Here’s the list of Emanators that HoYoVerse discussed in its official announcement.

  • The Destruction: Antimatter Legion’s seven Lord Ravagers. These also consist of some bosses we’ve already faced in the game.
  • The Harmony: The Family’s Harmonic Strings are Emanators. Named ones include Beatriz, Constantina, and Dominicus. 
  • The Hunt: The notation from HoYoVerse suggests that some Xianzhou Alliance Generals and Marshalls could be Emanators.
  • The Nihility: The Self-Annihilators in the Doctors of Chaos group are considered Emanators.
  • The Preservation: Interastral Peace Corporation’s Diamond and Taravan Keane are noted to be Emanators.

We’ll soon learn even more about how an Emanator works in Honkai: Star Rail. The Penacony Trailblaze Missions are dealing with the topic a bit. The next ones show up in 2.1 later this month. That’s also when the Acheron and Luocha banners will appear in the game. 

Honkai: Star Rail is available for the PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the 2.1 update will arrive on March 27, 2024.
