The AI of the battleship Hyperion, who is also the "system voice" of the game and will help you with tutorials.
She also has 3 (event-exclusive) weapons modeled after her: a cannon for Bronya, a "hammer" for Himeko and a cross for Theresa.
- A Day in the Limelight: One supplementary comic is about her backstory. Back in 2001, a year after the 2nd Honkai War, Theresa investigated a strange Floating Continent above the Arctic Ocean and entered a strange hole in its grounds. There, she first met Ai-chan, or rather, an android called "A1", who came from the Previous Era. The two then fought each other, and then Theresa beat her and brought her body to the Hyperion. There, she was connected to the battleship, and her AI then inhabited its system. As she lost her memories and abilities, she was given a new name, "Ai-chan".
- Bad Liar: Despite her proudly boasting that players wont be able to see the Valkyries panties no matter how hard they try, it is in fact, very easy to see the panties of several Valkyries.
- Finishing Move: In Schicksal HQ Open World, during combat mode, Ai-chan can finish off almost-dying mooks with her skill. This is helpful when you're completing tasks, as many of them come with a time challenge.
- Improbable Weapon User: Ai-chan's Candy (the cross weapon) attacks by dropping gift boxes onto enemies once it's deployed.
- Macguffin Guardian: The purpose of her past self, A1, was to guard a part of the "last Divine Key" that was destroyed by the final Herrscher. She tried testing Theresa if the latter is worthy of using the weapon, and she came to the conclusion that Theresa wasn't, because the weapon is meant to defend the world and humanity, and that someone who's bound by their personal feelings is not qualified to use it. After A1 was defeated, the device she was guarding was brought to Schicksal HQ.
- Mana Meter: In Schicksal HQ Open World, she comes with an energy meter of her own. Some of her hacking abilities will cost her energy (some of them more than others), while a few of them have free cost.
- Mascot: She's one for the game. She also becomes the "face" for the game's developers in the social media.
- Mind Rape: It wasn't her intention, but when A1 tried to do a "mind check" on Theresa, the latter ended up relieving her memories, including the bad ones, up to Cecilia's death. She was left kneeling on the ground after that.
- Odango Hair: She has her hair tied in a pair of large buns. One of the game's Running Gags is based around as them, as they rather resemble cabbages.
- One-Hit Kill: In Schicksal HQ Open World, she can kill the roaming mooks in one hit whenever you're outside of combat mode, by walking to the mook's back and then activating Ai-chan's skill.
- The Paralyzer: Ai-chan Hammer's active skill has Himeko smash the ground with it, causing a small blast that has a 50% chance to stun nearby enemies.
- Platforming Pocket Pal: In the Schicksal HQ Open World, she becomes this, in the vein of Higokumaru below. She floats alongside you, picks up collectables for you, and acts as an all-purpose hacker for the many interactive devices on the stages and the enemy robots and turrets. By leveling her up, she'll be able to perform more things.
- Point Build System: In Schicksal HQ Open World, Ai-chan's "tech" is put around like this, with you allocating skill points to a Skill Tree.
- Rocket Punch: The Ai-chan Cannon fires her 2 fists instead of normal rockets. They also give random status effects onto the target by a chance.
- Self-Insert Fic: The Stigmata Naoe Kanetsugu looks like an adult version of Ai-chan, Odango Hair and everything. When you read the Stigmata's notes, it quickly becomes apparent that Ai-chan has written herself into a version of the real samurai's accounts, which Himeko lampshades in a report to Theresa.We need to do something about Ai-chan's obsession with these Japanese Taiga Dorama history TV shows, Principal. Her addiction is getting in the way of everything.
- Spaceship Girl: More like "Airship Girl", but it's still the same.
- Worf Had the Flu: In the middle of the fight between her "past self" A1 and Theresa, she suddenly stopped working because she exhausted her energy supply. At that point she couldn't hold the fight anymore; in desperation, she tried to self-destruct to take Theresa down with her, but Theresa stopped her cold with an Armor-Piercing Slap.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Has bright green hair, which only feeds into the "cabbage" gag more.
Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki (Japanese)
Kiana Kaslana's father, husband of Cecilia Schariac, and Theresa's friend. The latest heir of Kaslana family, known as a prodigy among them. Not long after he fathered Kiana, he participated in the 2nd Honkai War, which ended in his wife's death; he later ran away from Schicksal and took Kiana with him, raising her by himself. Some years after that, he left Kiana for unknown reasons.
In-game, he's shown in Chapter 5, set in a "simulation of the past". There he met Theresa and Kiana, and later tries to attack Sirin with his "released" Judgment of Shamash, although he failed to do lasting damage and would've died from his own attack were it not for Cecilia saving him.
Also available as a Stigmata set.
- Action Dad: He still kicks Honkai butts after being a dad.
- Affectionate Nickname: People who are well acquainted with him like Cecilia and Shub shorten his name to "Ziggy".
- An Arm and a Leg: He lost his left arm after he released the power of Judgement Of Shamash. It's still quite a feat for him, though, as at least 3 other Kaslanas before him died for doing the same.
- Ancestral Weapon: His Judgment of Shamash is a weapon—one of the Divine Keys—passed through the Kaslana family's generations. It takes the form of dual guns that contain destructive fire powers and, when fully "released", can transform into a powerful BFS, but its power once released is so tremendous that it can cause massive collateral damage and harm his body, something that happened to a few of his ancestors.
- Battle Couple: With Cecilia.
- Belated Love Epiphany: In one of the supplementary comics, he had a strong sense of loss and yearning after Cecilia was taken back by Schicksal, and vowed to see her again. Two years later, it's shown that Cecilia had a similar sentiment; once the two got reunited (by his deal with Otto), they immediately embraced each other.
- Disappeared Dad: He left Kiana a few years before she enrolled to St. Freya Academy. Theresa claims to know his whereabouts, which she uses to convince Kiana to partake in the academy.
- Fanboy: Back when he was a young boy (around The '80s), he was a fan of a mecha anime called "Arahato". Later, before the start of the 21th century, he found out that said anime was, in fact, produced by Anti-Entropy (as a means of income) and that they've made a 1-to-1 scale model of the mech that can also go to outer space. When Welt Young revealed the mecha to him, he briefly had a dorky fanboy moment before Welt had to cut him off.
- Handsome Lech: Theresa once says that he's a shameless flirt. Best shown in Chapter 5 (which takes place in a simulation of the past) where he tries to flirt with the girl that Theresa brought with her, not realizing that it's Kiana, his own daughter. In a supplementary comic, even the holograph of him in a fight simulator compliments Kiana's "growth", causing her to punch his face.
- Heroic Willpower: In the past, he once encountered Welt Young of Anti-Entropy, who blocked his way to Cecilia and tried to subdue him with Star of Eden's power of gravity. Welt warned him that the force of 10G (10 times normal gravity) would hurt him if he resisted, but Siegfried fought back against the force, stood back up and tried to attack him again. Siegfried got punched in the gut by Welt to unconsciousness for his troubles.
- Identical Grandson: He apparently looks similar to his oldest ancestor, Kevin Kaslana, from the previous major civilization, down to the similar hairstyle (when Kevin got older at least), jacket and weapon. In one supplementary comic, it's shown that Kallen's father also looked similar to him.
- Lethal Chef: He's shown to toast the pizza bread he made using Judgement of Shamash. In the Second Eruption comic, Theresa winces and refuses Cecilia's offer for dinner as soon as she hears Siegfried is the cook, as his previous new dish tasted like charcoal according to her.Theresa: *thinking* I have no idea why Cecilia tolerated Siegfried's terrifying cooking. Was it love? Or weird taste? Her man can't cook to save his own life. He makes charred disasters, not food.
- Like Father, Like Son: A variant with his daughter. He's heroic, tough, straightforward, stubborn, a pervert, and a bad cook... just like Kiana.
- Sink-or-Swim Mentor: Implied to be the reason he left Kiana in the first place. He wanted her to learn how to survive on her own and believed leaving her to her devices was the best way to do it.
- Walking the Earth: Before he met Cecilia he wandered across the world. He apparently ran away from home because he didn't want to be bound to the family's duties to Schicksal and wanted to be a hero in his own way.
- The Worf Effect: Some time before the events of the game, he and Raiden Ryoma came under attack from two agents from World Serpent, Raven and Jackal. Despite maintaining control of his Ichor infection, Siegfried is implied to have been defeated and captured by these emerging threats, as they later give Kevin the Judgement of Shamash and assure him that Siegfried has been given every measure of comfort befitting one of Kevin's guests. It didn't help that he only has one good arm at that point.

Kiana's mother, Siegfried's wife and Theresa's close friend. She was an S-rank Valkyie and "the chosen one" of the Schariac family. Some time after mothering Kiana, she perished during the second Honkai War when Schicksal bombarded the area where she was facing the 2nd Herrscher, Sirin, killing them both. She appears in Chapters 5 and 6 in the "simulation" of the 2nd Honkai War.
Also available as a Stigmata set.
- The Ace: She was an S-rank Valkyrie and one of the most powerful Valkyries Schicksal ever had (after Kallen Kaslana and Reanna Brigantia). During the Second Honkai outbreak, she effortlessly killed one of Sirin's Seraphim Princes by chucking her lance from high altitude, piercing a gaping hole in her opponent and cushioning her fall with a tree created by Black Orchid's Virescent Growth ability.
- Action Mom: it was mentioned that she was still tending to the toddler Kiana when she was called to take part in the 2nd Honkai War.
- Battle Couple: She and her husband are both powerful fighters who wield their own Divine Keys.
- Blade on a Stick: Her Divine Key, Black Orchid - White Lily, is a pair of polearms; one's a lance and the other's a javelin. It gives her the power over "life and death". It is currently in the hands of Durandal after her death.
- Dub Name Change: Her name is "Cecilia Shaniate" in the original Chinese/Japanese.
- Happily Married: Cecilia is very understanding of her husband Siegfried. When Siegfried is preparing to go to the Moon with Welt aboard the Arhat, he calls Cecilia to check up on her and Kiana, and was about to confess his worries about the mission's success odds, but could not bring himself to say it and hangs up. Cecilia calls him back instead, reassuring him that despite the difficult choice and potential sacrifices, she knows he made the right decision because of his just personality, and will happily share the burden if it comes to that.
- Heroic Sacrifice: In the 2nd Honkai War, she held the 2nd Herrscher in a fight for long enough for Schicksal to bombard the tower the two were in, killing the Herrscher at the cost of her life. The truth, however, is that Cecilia spent most of her blood fueling her bloodline's special ability to suppress Honkai energy, thwarting Sirin's Superpower Meltdown and reducing the radiation casualties to less than 3000 people. With her blood nearly depleted after using said ability and sheltering Siegfried underground with her vines, the only thing Cecilia could do before Otto's missiles hit her was comfort the dying Sirin like a mother would.
- Important Haircut: In one of the supplementary comics, when she was younger (around her teen years), after the incident where she's separated from her fellow Valkyries and found by the young Siegfried, she cut her hair short to make herself less noticeable (for her safety).
- Instant Expert: Having lived a sheltered life as a Valkyrie, Cecilia knew nothing of video games until she met Siegfried. However, her absurdly sharp reflexes let her easily trump over Siegfried at any game despite being a total newbie.
- Mystical White Hair: She has white hair and possesses her own mystical power, as well as wielding a Divine Key.
- Set Bonus: Her Stigmata set is unique that its individual stigma won't take effect unless at least 2 of them are put together. Aside from activating the 2-set bonus, equipping 2 will also activate the corresponding stigmata parts' effects.
- Stance System: Her Stigmata plays this way: Every few seconds, the 2 stars circling the user's head will glow either black or white. Each part of the stigmata, as well as its 2-set bonus, have different effects that activate when stars are glowing either black or white. E.g Cecilia T increases the power of normal attacks when the stars shine black, or the power of branch attacks when they shine white.
- Together in Death: She spent her final moments craddling the dying Sirin, lamenting that the dream world Sirin created was the only place where Cecilia could act as a mother for the young girl to make up for all the pain and loneliness the Herrscher experienced. Nevertheless, Cecilia's happy that at the end of it all, she's sharing a final moment of warmth with Sirin, telling her "Ich liebe dich".

A pair of characters introduced in Fu Hua's side story "The Forgotten". The pioneers of China and its civilization, revered as two of the "Three Sovereigns" of China. They were close friends with someone named "Jingwei" in the past, who's entrusted by them to protect the land after their passing.
Also available as 3 Stigmata sets; Fuxi has 1 set while Nuwa has 2. There are also weapons modeled after them: Book of Fuxi (a cannon for Bronya) and Nuwa Blade (a sword for Mei/Sakura).
- Animal Motifs: Snakes, befitting the original legend. As seen in 2 of Nuwa's Stigmata, she can also turn into a Snake Person.
- Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Nuwa firmly believes that legends must be interesting so that people won't forget them, and is a bit too enthusiastic about the figurines.
- Demythification: In the Chinese myth, the two are twin pioneer deities of Ancient China. Here, they're simply normal girls (inasmuch as they can be called "normal") who became legends and deified by the people.
- Fire, Ice, Lightning: The Fuxi Stigmata set are about increasing elemental damage on either frozen, paralyzed or burned enemies, depending on the individual stigma. If the three are used together, they'll increase the user's elemental attack further and reduce elemental damage taken if there are 3 or more enemies around them. The Book of Fuxi cannon also lets Bronya attack with the three elements one at a time through its special Stance System: either exploding fireballs, homing electric balls or a continuous ice laser.
- Fling a Light into the Future: In Fu Hua's side story "The Forgotten", both Nuwa and Fuxi are attempting to do this in their own ways: the former makes clay figurines, while the latter tries to create and observe the currency system. They also entrust Jingwei to guard the land and its people for them, since unlike the two, she can live much longer. In the supplementary comic that shows the previous advanced civilization, the twins themselves are also the light flung into the future, as they were put into a deep sleep following the past humanity's extinction in order to help guide the next human civilization.
- Gender Flip: In the original Chinese Mythology, Fuxi was a guy.
- Mythology Gag: In the original myth, Nuwa was said to create humanity and other creatures out of clay. This is translated into her hobby of creating clay figurines.
- Older Than They Look: They both look like young girls, but they used to be part of the previous advanced civilization, making them (technically) much older.
- Otaku: Nuwa seems to be one, who's obsessed with making figurines and comic books. In the Winter Rhapsody event, she's also mentioned to be a NEET. In the Dorm, it's implied through Fu Hua that she was the one who wrote a particular book about being an otaku.
- Playing with Fire: The original Nuwa Stigmata set are all about enhancing the fire abilities of the user, making them fitting for fire-elemental Valkyries. The Nuwa Blade also lets the user summon a "fire fairy" that attacks enemies with fire.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Nuwa is more artistic and quite an airhead, while Fuxi is calm and thoughtful, especially about economics.
- Posthumous Character: Both are long dead by the time Honkai Impact 3rd's main story takes place, with "The Forgotten" side story being Otto's probe into Fu Hua's fragmented memories.
- Rapunzel Hair: Both have very long dark brown hair in a Hime Cut.

A.k.a "Princess Xuanyuan". A legendary hero from China who developed natural Stigma and resistance against Honkai, and was blessed with "a sword from the gods", the Divine Key that was called Xuanyuan Sword, and warded off the Honkai threats with it, making her popular with the populace. Later, she sacrificed herself to hold a colossal Honkai Beast, called Chiyou, dormant under the sea.
Chapter Chiyou reveals that a part of her is alive inside of the beast, with (at least part of) her consciousness lying inside the Xuanyuan Sword. Her body, however, is still alive, awake, and has been very, very lonely for eons, eventually becoming mad and nihilistic, with her body and blade tainted with darkness: Dark Jixuanyuan.
She's featured as 3 stigmata sets: normal Jixuanyuan, Jixuanyuan: Aqua, and Dark Jixuanyuan. Her weapon(s) can also be acquired for Himeko, with the normal Xuanyuan Sword restricted to gacha while the dark version is available in Sakura Samsara's shop (with enough materials). The latter is also the end boss of "Chapter Chiyou" and "The Forgotten" (Fu Hua's side story), and and one of the bosses of the Matrix Space Raid stages.
- And I Must Scream: The uncountable millennia spent inside Chiyou were not good for her, at all. The environments inside didn't help.
- BFS: The Xuanyuan Sword, one of the Divine Keys and one of the high-rarity weapons in-game, along with its corrupted version, Dark Xuanyuan Sword. The former lets Himeko attack with Fire, Ice, Lightning effects randomly and defend herself with sword projectiles, while the latter lets her activate Time Fracture more often.
- Bullet Time: The Dark Jixuanyuan Stigmata set are all about powering yourself up while in a Time Fracture state.
- Character Select Forcing: Dark Jixuanyuan in Memorial Arena has a combination of significant features: she takes more damage if she's bleeding or ignited, she's fast with her horse, and said horse also resists ranged attacks. There's exactly one character who can easily bleed enemies with melee attacks and is fast enough to keep up with her: Gyakushin Miko (Sakura).
- Cool Horse: As Dark Jixuanyuan, she has a black-and-golden horse that gives him damage resistance and lets her warp around the place.
- Fallen Hero: The years she spent inside Chiyou completely eroded her heart and her will as a hero, turning her into Dark Jixuanyuan.
- Flying Weapon:
- Dark Jixuanyuan's Memorial Arena version has an attack where she creates multiple small portals beside her that then fire copies of her Xuanyuan Sword. After she Turns Red, said attack will cover a lot more space and last a bit longer.
- Matrix Space Raid version of Dark Jixuanyuan is accompanied by flying copies by the Dark Xuanyuan Sword in her second phase. They can fly around while trying to impale your Valkyries, or plant themselves on the ground and then fire painful lightning beams at the Valkyries.
- Go Out with a Smile: Dark Jixuanyuan thanks our hero trio as they put her out of her misery.
- Red Baron: She was better known as the Yellow Emperor, the first recorded human with powers strong enough to fight the Honkai.
- Shock and Awe: Some of Dark Jixuanyuan's attacks are laced with lightning, including lightning strikes from above.
- Sword Beam: One of Dark Jixuanyuan's attacks is a simple crescent beam attack from her sword. She has a more powerful version of it that she executes by jumping first.
- Turns Red: After you deplete Dark Jixuanyuan's health to around 1/2 to 1/3 of her third bar, she'll become more powerful, with more lightning strikes in her attacks and some of her attacks also being enhanced.
Sakura Samsara Side Story
Voiced by: Shiori Izawa (Japanese)
A character introduced in Sakura Samsara's side story. She's found by Sakura inside a barrel, without her memories; the two spend the story trying to restore her memories. After the side quest, she serves as companion in the Open World.
Also available as a Stigmata set.
- Amnesiac Dissonance: She was Hellmaru. Even longer before that, she was the 12th Herrscher of the old world, the "Herrscher of Corruption". So named because her power is a super-powerful virus that infects humans, animals and machines alike. If the bubble universe shown in ch. 12 is to be believed, she was also the old world Sakura's sister, Rin.
- Bokukko: In the Japanese voice version, she uses "boku" to refer to herself. Combined with her somewhat androgynous look, the "-maru" in her name (usually used for males) and her way of speaking, it makes her a tomboy.
- Breath Weapon: One of her attacks is her breathing a continuous stream of fire at the target. It's also the effect of the T version of her Stigma (activated by breaking the enemy's shields with normal attacks).
- Chekhov's Gun: She views Sakura as her older sister of sorts. Ch. 12 implies that her real older sister is the previous era's Sakura.
- Damage Over Time: The "fire" version, with one of her skills allowing you to cause a small blast of flames with normal attacks that ignites enemies in a small area. In a different way, the B version of her Stigma lets the user deal continuous small fire damage by getting into the enemy's vicinity.
- Damage Reduction: The M version of her Stigma decreases physical damage taken by a certain percentage.
- Dark and Troubled Past: A glimpse of the past shown in her story in Sakura Samsara showed that she used to be a harmless girl, but someone thought that she could become a potential danger. Despite knowing it's wrong to kill the harmless girl, that someone ended up killing her. Unexpectedly, she "arose" as a fox-like phantom and got angry towards her killer and began haunting them, until said killer sealed her inside a tiny box. One supplementary comic shows her past in better detail: 50000+ years ago, she was the 12th Herrscher who didn't show any signs of being a Herrscher other than her abnormally high Honkai energy, who was killed by soldiers who feared her for being a potential threat, activating her Herrscher abilities and releasing a powerful virus. She began infecting people and the computer systems of Fire Moth's HQ, releasing nukes that destroyed humanity's three remaining cities in the process, until the past MEI trapped it into a special box that she made.
- Deflector Shields: One of her skills gives the whole team a spherical forcefield. Unlike Yamabuki Armor's own, this shield only blocks one hit before disappearing (and regenerating after some seconds), but it can also block fire damage without breaking.
- Fireballs: Her basic attack is to throw small fireballs at the enemy.
- Flaming Sword: She occasionally swings a fire blade.
- Flying Firepower: She can fly freely around you and use fire attacks.
- Fun Size: She's quite small, around the size of a hamster, and looks Super-Deformed. Her Stigmata set depicts her with more humanoid proportions, however.
- Gender-Blender Name: -maru usually is for boys.
- Identity Amnesia: "Higokumaru" is simply a name given by Sakura given that she forgets her real name.
- Kitsune: The in-game description of her mentions that she claims to be a human, but notes the 4 tails and the fox ears, and the fact that she likes inari-age (seasoned tofu skin). The description concludes that "she must be a fox".
- Literal Split Personality: Implied in some scenes in Sakura Samsara game mode and one of the supplementary comics. After Hellmaru is defeated, its power and consciousness as the 12th Herrscher is turned into the sword Jizo Mitama by the box, which presumably leads to Higokumaru (i.e the girl who "hosted" the 12th Herrscher back in the Previous Era) being split from it and later found by Sakura. In Sakura Samsara story quest, Higokumaru will remember things from her past the closer they get to the sword's location (including how she used to hurt many people), and once they found the sword, she remembers everything... and then the sword forcefully "merges" with her, turning the two into the boss Jizo Mitama. From "her" lines, it's implied that "she" was Hellmaru. Once Sakura beats "her", Higokumaru goes back normal and she apologizes to Sakura.
- Optional Stealth: One of her skills in the Open World is "Expose Instinct", which makes your character enters "stealth mode". When activated, you'll be able to see hidden chests and special hidden encounters, and you'll also gain the "stealth kill" ability that allows you to Back Stab roaming enemies for massive damage.
- Pillar of Light: More like Pillar of Fire, but still, one of her attacks creates a pillar-like blast of fire that sends enemies airborne. It's also the effect of the M version of her stigma (activated upon Ultimate Evasion).
- Platforming Pocket Pal: In Sakura Samsara's Open World, she acts as this. She frequently assists you during battle and provides you with some unique abilities. A later patch gives a feature of turning her off (so she won't be assisting you directly), while keeping the passive abilities from her.
- Set Bonus: For her Stigmata set:
- 2 sets: Gains 1% fire damage for both you and the summoned Higokumaru's attack for every combo hit count, which stacks up to 40 times.
- 3 sets: Instantly sets the combo counter to 50 (if the number was less than 50) and the stacks of the 2 sets' effect by 40 upon entering the field, 30 seconds cooldown.
- Spell Blade: One of her skills gives you extra fire damage on your normal attacks (also used in the T version of her Stigma).
- Spell My Name with an "S": At least Japanese-wise, her name is properly spoken as "Higyokumaru".
- Summon Magic: The effect of the T and M version of her Stigmata allows you to summon her to perform an attack, even outside the Open World.
- Teleportation: One of her skills lets you teleport around in the map with her powers. It's disabled when you're battling monsters, however.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink hair, with red streaks.
A young woman who lived in the 1470's. She used to be infected with the "Black Death" plague until Otto developed a cure and used it on her, making her healthy again. She then was given the last name "Schariac" and became a Valkyrie for the Schicksal.
- Blade on a Stick: She has a special "black spear" (implied to be Black Orchid, one of the Divine Keys) that emits strange black vapor that allows her strikes to cause painful wounds.
- Blind Obedience: Her Undying Loyalty towards Schicksal and particularly Otto (after he saved her from her disease) made her blind towards the group's corruption.
- After she became part of Schicksal's Valkyries, she condemned the "rogue" that attacked one of Schicksal's priests. And she was talking to Kallen (the very rogue) at the time.
- She was so loyal to Otto and looked up to him, and yet he ended up shooting her with the copy of Judgment of Shamash, allowing Kallen to finish her off. Her last words were about questioning Otto and lamenting that she could've done much more.
- Knife Nut: She normally just fights with multiple knives.
- Knight Templar: After she was saved by Otto and joined Schicksal, she came to believe that the group is just and can do no wrong, and thought that whoever opposed them are "heretics".
- Power Crystal: She acquired one from the strange "Honkai box". She would then use it to turn into a Spider People-like Honkai Beast to fight Kallen. She claimed that "God knocked the door and she opened it" after she transformed, and claimed herself to be "God's avenging angel". In her beast form, she can shoot powerful lasers from the crystal, which was embedded in her chest. When Otto came to Kallen's rescue, he ended up shooting the crystal on her body, allowing Kallen to finish her off. After her death, said crystal released dark vapors and enveloped Kallen; it - the 12th Herrscher - would then try to corrupt Kallen and take over her body until her Heroic Resolve defeated it.
- You Just Told Me: When she came to Schicksal's secret underground facility to respond to an intruder, she called the intruder "Captain Kaslana" and she reflexively turned her head towards Eleanor, forgetting that she's supposed to be in disguise.
Previous Era Civilization (Warning: Unmarked spoilers inbound)
Voiced by: Satoshi Hino (Japanese)
The ancestor of Siegfried Kaslana, and the only known warrior of the Kaslana bloodline to ever use the Judgement of Shamash at full power without ill consequences. He was friends with MEI back in high school before the old civilization's equivalent of the Third Impact occurred, and volunteered to be one of Fire Moth's first Honkai-human hybrid super soldiers to fight back against the increasingly powerful Herrschers of the era.
He later appears in-game in ch. 12, in one of the "bubble universes" of the Sea of Quanta.
- Anti-Villain: He's simultaneously in conflict with the heroes and yet also has the same long-term goal as they do - defeating the Honkai once and for all. Though considering the Knight Templar and Shoot the Dog tedencies he has displayed, their unwillingness to work with him is a bit more understandable. But he's still significantly less of an asshole than Otto Apocalypse, who wants to continue the war against the Honkai just to get a shot at reviving Kallen.
- Badass and Baby: one supplementary comic gives an image of him cradling the baby that Dr. Mei made with their genes while holding Judgment of Shamash with his other hand after he woke up from his cryosleep thousands of years from his era.
- Beethoven Was an Alien Spy: An analysis by Director Catherine during Durandal and Rita's trip to London in the London Holiday comic surmises that the Arthurian legends have some truth to them, namely the existence of Avalon as a place on another side of the spacetime fabric and Excalibur being the key to accessing it, on top of being given by Merlin, who gave rise to the Arthurian legends. "Avalon" is then theorized to be within the Sea of Quanta, and a shot of a hooded figure sporting Kevin's short silver hair is called to attention, implying he is "Merlin".
- Call-Back: When he appears in ch. 12 in the Sea of Quanta, he recalls his promise that "humanity shall triumph over the Honkai". As shown in the comic focusing on Kallen's past, it has been adopted as the Kaslana family's Badass Creed.
- Chekhov M.I.A.: He was just thought to be a legend in the present day, but in Ch. 12 of the game, he somehow appears in one part of the Sea of Quanta, as seen by Seele. He's standing in front of what appears to be a giant sakura tree, recalling his promise: no matter what happens, humanity shall defeat the Honkai. He was apparently trapped in the Sea of Quanta since 1500 years ago, and his memories and "promises" formed a "bubble universe" (set during his time) that Seele stumbled herself into. In the meantime, he also founded the secret organization "World Serpent" (aka "Jormungand").
- Give Geeks a Chance: He was an ace basketball player in his high school who was popular with the students. Despite that, his attention is locked solely to one person: MEI, a genius student who's more focused in her studies and would repeatedly decline his advances.
- Mythology Gag: Back in Guns Girl Z (the previous game), Kevin was the Alternate Universe version of Kiana.
- Phlebotinum-Handling Requirements: It's his augmentation with the gene of Parvati that allows him to wield Judgment of Shamash safely. By extension, it also allows him to use the weapon's "true" Zeroth Release, a stronger version of its sword form, "Might of An-Utu".
- The Reveal: He is the true identity of the "World Serpent", as confirmed by Seele. He also has the Gem of Desire in his possession. While he and our protagonist group (Bronya, Seele, Welt) have a "common enemy" in the Honkai, he claims that "[they] know nothing about the Honkai" and that he aims to go into the real world to fulfill the "true destiny of the pioneer".
- Star-Crossed Lovers: Kevin always had eyes on MEI from the very first time they met, with MEI constantly rejecting his advances. Then the 3rd Honkai Eruption happened, and suddenly war kept them from being together, despite Kevin's enlistment in Fire Moth in order to be close to her. Kevin undertook the augmentations to become a M.A.N.T.I.S. and was fused with the genes of the ice Honkai Beast, Parvati, making his body temperature being perpetually at -30 Celsius; nobody, including Dr. MEI, could be close to him without protection. At the end of the Previous Era, Kevin found MEI dead after returning from the Moon encounter with the Herrscher of the End, having spent the last of her energy perfecting the Stigmata system. He thought about killing himself, but the existence of a baby made in vitro from his genes and MEI's convinced him to live on and lead the remains of civilization. As such, Kevin and the baby went in cryosleep, emerging 50,000 years later as the legendary Kaslana who would bring hope to humanity.
- Unwitting Pawn: He mentions in ch. 12's climax that he helped "that girl" (implied to be Seele) so that she could bring Herrscher of Reason to him.
- Villain Respect: In Ch. 12, He shows this towards Welt, who genuinely fought for humanity despite bearing the power of a Herrscher. He's also glad to know that there are still more heroes and visionaries fighting for humanity long after his absence.
- We Can Rule Together: In ch. 12's climax, he says that he sees potential in Welt, Bronya and Seele, and that the World Serpent would like to have people like them. Welt disagrees with him, but Kevin calmly says that "you'll turn around in time".
- We Meet Again: He says this to Welt (who's currently inside his Core of Reason that Bronya is using) when Bronya arrives at his location in the Sea of Quanta. This refers to their first encounter in ch. 9-EX 2, back when Kevin was in his "World Serpent" guise.
- We Will Meet Again: at the end of Ch. 12, he says this towards Welt, Bronya and Seele, specifically "in the real world".

A genius scientist during the Previous Era's civilization, MEI was friends with Kevin Kaslana when the era's equivalent of the Third Honkai Eruption occurred. She was instrumental in making many of the anti-Honkai weapons and artifacts that would be passed on long after her death, chief among them being the Stigmata system.
- Determinator: When the 12th Herrscher executed its plan to hijack hundreds of nukes and destroy humanity's three remaining cities, MEI did not give up and managed to trap the entity within a black box. Even faced with the prediction that the 14th's victory was inevitable and her own body was about to succumb to continued Honkai material exposure, MEI managed to perfect the Stigmata system, ensuring that the next era of civilization would have the right tools to combat the Honkai when they re-emerge. It was only then that she died on duty on the control terminal.
- Generation Xerox: She looks very identical to her present time counterpart Raiden Mei. They even share the same name.
- Powered Armor: Among many of her inventions, she made an "unnumbered Divine Key" that takes form of a suit of armor. It can hold a Herrscher Core and then give the wearer the power of said Herrscher without having their mind succumbed to the Honkai, but it puts a heavy strain on its user with each use. This armor later becomes the basis for Himeko's Vermilion Knight suit.
- Teen Genius: This MEI's father was a renowned physicist specializing in the field of electromagnetism, and she was solely interested in becoming a scientist and expanding upon human knowledge, even during high school, where she met Kevin.
- The Voice: She has a voice-only cameo in ch. 12 of the game, depicting the time of 12th Herrscher's outbreak.
One of Fire Moth's high ranking officers during the Previous Era, Captain Himeko took in an orphaned Fu Hua and trained her to become a M.O.T.H. soldier. But this mentorship would not last, as Himeko would end up corrupted by the Honkai and become the 7th Herrscher, the Herrscher of Flames. Kevin Kaslana slew her after becoming a Honkai-human hybrid, but felt no joy in putting her down.
- FaceHeel Turn: Corruption from Honkai energy eventually turned her into a Herrscher, leading to Himeko betraying her squadron and wreak havok on a greater scale than the six previous Herrschers.
- Playing with Fire: Within a week after her transformation into the 7th Herrscher, Himeko singlehandedly reduced Australia to a burned hellscape. Fu Hua notes that Agata, despite being blessed with the powers of the Herrscher of Flames through Sirin's additional Cores, is a mere whelp compared to this Himeko's power.
The "King" of all HOMU-kind. He appears as a boss in Bronya's extra story "Dilemma Dreamland", as well as in the Coop Raid stages "Final HOMU Fantasy".
- Ass Kicks You: He has a butt bump as an attack. He also farts before the attack, which also will hurt.
- Circling Birdies: After his Slide Attack, he appears to be dizzy while stars spin above him. After a few seconds, the stars fall around him, dealing quite some damage to your Valkyries if they hit.
- Cool Crown: A big red one that signifies his "royalty".
- Degraded Boss: In Final HOMU Fantasy's first stage, copies of him appear as a Giant Mook; they're relatively easy to beat, with the catch that they have the Soul Link buff between them. He then shows up as a proper boss in the third stage. Inverted in the fourth stage, as he's invincible (Bronya explicitly hacked the game to make it so) and can kill your characters in one hit; what you do in that stage is to bait him towards the crowns on the ground (dropped by killing the HOMU mooks). He'll stop after getting 4.
- Flunky Boss: He can occasionally summon HOLA mooks to aid him.
- Interface Screw: He can throw Banana Peels around that will reverse your direction if you step on them.
- Invincibility Powerup: Only in the Memorial Arena battle—he has a move where he turns invincible but with a few seconds of charge time. You have to break his shield gauge (preferably with attacks that do multiple hits) before he finishes charging in order to cancel the invincibility; the one who breaks the shield will also get a special debuff where they get weakened, their mana depletes and they move much slower.
- King Mook: He's one for the HOMU mooks and can perform similar moves as them, but stronger.
- Roboteching: He has a move where he fires 3 homing bullets from his gun. They can be evaded in cue.
- Shockwave Stomp: Two of them: one only does one hit but will keep you stunned for quite some time, while the other does multiple hits and will do quite a number to your Valkyrie should you get hit.
- Slide Attack: He has an attack where he runs and then slides forward, while shooting harmful stars in 5 directions.
- Dash Attack: Its "horseback knight beast" form has a high-speed running attack with its lance.
- Dig Attack: Its "crab beast" form has an attack where it burrows underground, then tries to follow and then hit you from there. It'll attack like this 2-3 times before it comes out of the ground.
- Final-Exam Boss: The boss periodically shapeshifts into stronger versions of the Quantum Honkai Beasts that you've fought from ch. 11 to ch. 12 (as well as in Q-Singularis); in fact, the boss never attacks you in its original sphere form. If you've learned how to handle the individual monsters (including how to induce a "Quantum Collapse" on them), you'll have an easy time beating this boss.
- Flunky Boss: In the Memorial Arena version of the battle, the boss will summon Quantum Honkai Beasts when its health go below 50%. At higher rank, it'll summon stronger kind of monsters.
- Giant Enemy Crab: One of its forms is a huge crab with high defenses.
- Rolling Attack: Its "crab beast" form can roll into a ball and then tackle you if you're far away from them. It can then follow the attack by teleporting above you and then falling down with a Shockwave Stomp.
- Shaping Your Attacks: Its "octopus beast" form primarily attacks by shaping quantum energy into blocks of different shapes and then shooting them at you in various ways, including conjuring walls of energy blocks to trap you and then smashing you with a moving wall.
- Shoryuken: Its "crab beast" form has a jumping uppercut with its left pincer as an attack. It can then follow up with a powerful Shockwave Stomp.
- Sword Beam: Its "horseback knight beast" form has an attack where it shoots wide, slow-moving crescent beams out of its lance. It can do this multiple times while Teleport Spamming.
- Takes One to Kill One: As it's a Quantum-type boss, Quantum-type playable characters are strong against it.

A.k.a "Big Wei". The Author Avatar of miHoYo's CEO, he mostly appears in events.
- Butt-Monkey: He mostly serves as a comic figure where jokes and hijinks are made at his expense.
- In the anniversary summer event, he was forced to become a receptionist at the miHoYo building; there's an event stage set in the building, with him sitting on the reception's desk. He apparently can be attacked by your playable character; this does nothing negative gameplay-wise, but it does lead to him reacting funnily.
- In the "Odd Drifter" event, it's implied that the dead patron in the Pavilion is him, and he was thought to be murdered, but it turns out that he only died by slipping on a Banana Peel...that is, if you take Ritas explanation at face value.
- The Faceless: His "face" is only a pair of eyebrows and the hanzi for "Wei".
- Finger-Tenting: His NPC model in dialogue shots is locked into this pose.
- Riches to Rags: The anniversary summer event shows him being reduced to walking on the streets after Bronya buys a significant amount of miHoYo's stocks in order to take over the company. One story of the event focuses on you trying to help him get back to be the head of the company again, although he's thwarted in the end.
- Running Gag: Almost always, whenever he appears, he says that hes sold something that he owned in order to give you certain goodies.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: Being a CEO, he wears the standard 3-piece suit.
First appears in Chapter 9-EX. A mysterious man who held the intel for the missing Kiana, the Hyperion forces made a deal with him for it. Rita supposedly murdered him in Arc City, but later he reappears, contacting Hyperion to ask for his payment.
- The Assimilator: In Ch. 12, he (as Assaka) grabs Liliya and assimilates her, seemingly giving him some extra strength. He remarks that he planned to do it on Rozaliya, but it doesn't matter, as he's trying to do just that afterwards. However, Theresa points out that his assimilation on Lili is still not complete, allowing her and Roza to free her sister with quite some effort.
- Cyborg: When Bronya scans his corpse in Arc City, she finds that his body is mostly replaced with cybernetics, from an artificial arm to an artificial eye (that Rita stole).
- Hive Mind: From his reappearance in Ch. 9-EX2, it's implied that there's more than one Gray Serpent with the same mind/personality. In Ch. 10, Einstein is spying on Cocolia speaking to what's implied to be him, but then he seemingly appears behind Einstein and knocks her out. In ch. 12, Cocolia threatens him at gunpoint to ensure Bronya's safety... and then another Gray Serpent appears behind her and shoots her (non-fatally). Later in a cutscene, the two Gray Serpents talk to Theresa and the Olenyeva twins in an alternating way as if their minds are one and the same. It's implied that there are more of him, too.
- Mind Rape: In Ch. 9-EX2, he seemingly enters Bronya's mind, trying to break her from within by playing her bad memories. Fortunately, Fu Hua (or rather, one of her "feathers") comes to save her.
- Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: In ch. 12, after absorbing Lili into himself (as Assaka), he goads Roza to get angry and let her "inner beast" take over. It's all a ploy so he can better absorb her as well, but Theresa tells her to calm down.
- Super Serum: In one stage of ch. 12, the two Gray Serpents pull out injectors and inject themselves with a strange liquid that turn them into the two halves of Assaka, but with their minds and even motor skills intact. He claims that the technology behind the Olenyeva twins' surgery to adopt Honkai Beast traits was the basis for this.
