Himeko is a familiar face to a lot of players, so here’s everything we know about her in Honkai: Star Rail, including her Skills, Materials, Talents, and more.
Honkai: Star Rail – Himeko
“The one who repaired the Astral Express. To witness the vast starry sky, she decided to travel with the Astral Express. Her hobby is brewing hand-made coffee.”
Himeko is a recurring character in quite a few Hoyoverse games and one that is well-loved by the community. In-game, she is a 5-star Fire character, and her Path is The Erudition. Members in this Path are known for devastating AoE attacks, capable of taking down multiple enemies at once. Be it using her Talent, her Skill, or her Ultimate, Himeko is capable of taking down waves upon waves of enemies.
She is one of the first characters we meet upon starting the game and will actually join your team temporarily. The Traces of her skills revolve around applying Burn on the enemy while increasing her damage against those who are burning as well.
In the English voiceover, she is voiced by Cia Court, who has notably lent her voice to other video game characters such as Vi from League of Legends, and Ogura Mio and Inagi Hotomi from Genshin Impact.
Tanaka Rie provided the voice for Himeko’s Japanese voice. Rie is a well-known voice-actor in the industry, lending her voice to Honkai Impact 3rd’s Himeko, as well as Lisa from Genshin Impact

Official March 7th Introduction
“An adventurous scientist who encountered the Astral Express as a child when it got stranded in her home world.
At that time, some existence in the Express revealed to this young girl a whole world outside of her own — the universe.
Years later, Himeko finally repaired the train and began her journey to the stars, but she realized that this was only the beginning. On the Trailblaze path, she would need many more companions…
Even though such companions may have different destinations in mind, they all gaze at the same starry sky.”
