When you first enter the world of Honkai: Star Rail, a woman playing the violin will welcome you. Her name is Kafka, and players will do anything to get their hands on her because of the allure of her mystery.
Kafka Honkai: Star Rail is a five-star playable character in this Hoyoverse game. In the meantime, here are some details you may find useful.
1. Taken from the name of the writer Franz Kafka
Kafka’s name, like that of Houkai Gakuen 2 and Honkai Impact 3rd, is inspired by the Czech short story and novelist Franz Kafka.
Franz Kafka, a Bohemian novelist, is usually considered to be one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. His stories have both realistic and fantastical components.
Themes of isolation, existential dread, guilt, and the ludicrous permeate his writings. His three most well-known novels are titled The Metamorphosis, The Trial, and The Castle.
2. Based on Characters in Gun Girl Z and Honkai Impact 3rd
It’s been a practice for miHoYo to use the same character in all of their games. Usually related directly or indirectly, frequently through the character’s name and design. As previously stated, this also relates to Kafka’s character.
Kafka is a character that enjoys writing in Honkai Gakuen or Gun Girl Z. She is recognized for being a very unwell girl who does not give up easy. It is highly influenced by the original figure of author Franz Kafka.
Meanwhile, Kafka appears exclusively as a character stigmata in Honkai Impact 3rd. It should be noted that in this game, several historical people are depicted as women, many of whom are cursed by the Abyss in order to live eternally, such as the characters Tesla and Einstein.
3. Nihility Path and Lightning Element
Kafka Honkai: Star Rail first appears in the game on the Space Station Herta, where she demonstrates her abilities as a fighter against the Legion’s Antimatter attacks.
Players can learn their skills and ultimate ability by controlling them through tutorials. This tutorial teaches you how to use some of her attacks, such as her basic attack Midnight Tumult, her skill Caressing Moonlight, and her ultimate burst Twilight Trill.
She is on the Nihility path and has the ability to debuff and weaken foes. She excels at area-of-effect (AoE) attacks, inflicting Lightning damage on adversaries every round.
4. Stellaron Hunter member
Nothing is known about Kafka except that she has a calm disposition, a charming voice, and is a great combatant. She is a Stellaron Hunter and a devoted member of Destiny’s Slave Elio.
Kafka shares Elio’s vision for the future and works to make it a reality. Surprisingly, the International Peace Corporation also listed her as a wanted person.
5. Femme Fatale Waifu
To say that Kafka Honkai: Star Rail is one of the most desirable characters in the game would be an understatement. She exudes an air of serenity and mystique, and her abilities are spectacular.
This character has been designed on purpose to play the role of a femme fatale. She has a pessimistic outlook on life and the world in general. She is a master manipulator who conceals her actual nature, and despite the intensity of feeling that she elicits in others, she is emotionally distant.
6. Voiced by Shizuka Ito
