Honkai: Star Rail developer HoYoverse has revealed the second 5-star character coming in the game's version 1.5 update in early November: the Knight of Beauty Argenti!
Argenti is a noble and dashing man with flaming red hair, as one would expect from a member of the Knights of Beauty, the followers of Idrila the vanished Aeon of Beauty.
He wields the Physical element and follows the Path of Erudition, specialising in dealing area-of-effect damage. Argenti will be the game's sixth Erudition character — after Himeko, Herta, Serval, Qingque, and Jing Yuan — and will be the first of that Path to wield the Physical element.
Who are the Knights of Beauty?
Argenti is described as a "classic knight" of the Knights of Beauty, wandering the cosmos alone and upholding the good name of their missing Aeon.
He is also described to be wielding a spear, piously initiating battle and making his opponent yield willingly.
While we have yet to see Argenti in-game, he and the other Knights of Beauty will help the player in one of the Reward Domains of the Swarm Disaster in the Simulated Universe.
In Kafka's Companion Quest, one of the lies she tells the Trailblazer in her game of truths and lies is that she used to be a member of the Knights of Beauty — a totally believable lie, if we're being a honest.
Argenti will be voiced by Adam Michael Gold, who will also be voicing Tail, the heliobus sealed within version 1.5's other 5-star character, Huohuo.
The character's voice actors for other dubs include Tachibana Shinnosuke for the Japanese dub, Liang Dawei for the Chinese dub, and Choi Seung-hoon for the Korean dub.
Judging by the order by which their reveals were released, we can expect Huohuo to be the featured 5-star in the first half of version 1.5 while Argenti will take the spotlight in the second half. There should also be a new 4-star character revealed tomorrow.
HoYoverse is set to reveal more of the upcoming content in version 1.4 in the version preview livestream on Friday (29 September) ahead of the update's expected release date on 11 October.
