Imbibitor Lunae Will be Imaginary 5-Star in Honkai: Star Rail

HoYoVerse released the pull art for Imbibitor Lunae, who will be a new 5-star character in Honkai: Star Rail. Since it usually reveals playable characters a version in advance, he will be likely one of the two new units to pull for from the gacha in Version 1.3. Imbibitor Lunae will be an Imaginary Destruction character.

According to the description for him, Imbibitor Lunae is the High Elder of the Luofu. He’s also the one who carries on the Azure Dragon’s legacy. His job was to guard the Ambrosial Arbor. Lore that you can collect on the Luofu implies that he caused something terrible to happen and had to leave. This is why he’s running from his kin and traveling on the Astral Express.

This is the 5-star version of Dan Heng, who’ll be a separate unit in-game, but the same character in the story. It’s a little similar to how the battlesuits worked in Honkai Impact 3rd. The Herrscher of Thunder and Herrscher of Origin are different characters with different kits in combat. However, they were both the same character: Raiden Mei.

Honkai: Star Rail is readily available on the Windows PC and mobile devices. PS4 and PS5 versions are in development. Imbibitor Lunae will come out as a playable character in Honkai: Star Rail Version 1.3. The special program for Version 1.2 will air on July 8, 2023 and will introduce new content, including new playable characters, Blade and Kafka.
