Early reveals from Honkai: Star Rail are teasing the leaked gameplay details for upcoming character Gallagher, expected to be introduced during the game’s Penacony cycle. The impending arrival of Version 2.0 for the massively popular sci-fi RPG has seen plenty of new characters’ gameplay leaked early, giving players an idea of the new party members to come. Leaks have already hinted at several teased characters like Boothill and Robin, showing off their kits before the characters have been officially confirmed. Now, another prospective Penacony cast member has been leaked.
The Version 1.6 Special Program for Honkai: Star Rail concluded with a segment introducing both Penacony and several members of the world’s cast.

Honkai: Star Rail Leaks Concept Art for New Character Gallagher
A new Honkai: Star Rail leak shows concept art for a mysterious character called Callagher, who is expected to arrive in version 1.6 or beyond.
A new leak from prominent Honkai: Star Rail leaker Dimbreath has revealed the first details of Gallagher’s gameplay within Honkai: Star Rail. The post teases Gallagher joining the game as a Fire character, with his Normal Attack dealing Fire damage and his Skill healing teammates based on his ATK stat. Gallagher’s Ultimate applies a special debuff to enemies, increasing Weakness Break damage as well as enhancing his Normal Attacks. Attacking enemies afflicted with Gallagher’s Ultimate debuff will also heal the character for a percentage of Gallagher’s ATK, with his own enhanced attacks healing all allies.
Gallagher’s kit suggests the character will play as an interesting mix of two of Honkai: Star Rail‘s main character classes. Gallagher’s kit takes elements of both Honkai: Star Rail‘s Abundance Path, focused around healing allies, and the Nihility Path’s focus on debuffs. The leak also hints at some of the bonuses Gallagher will receive for reaching higher Eidolon levels, including Gallagher receiving an extra turn when using his Ultimate at E1 and bonus damage at E2. Gallagher’s release date for Honkai: Star Rail has yet to be confirmed.
With Version 2.0’s launch on the horizon, Honkai: Star Rail looks to keep the game’s early momentum going with a variety of content in Version 1.6. The update, released earlier this week, will welcome three new characters to the RPG throughout its run, with Ruan Mei and Dr. Ratio as its featured five-star characters alongside four-star unit Xueyi. The update also adds two new game modes to Honkai: Star Rail with “Simulated Universe: Gold and Gears” and “Pure Fiction” debuting during Version 1.6. HoYoverse has given players plenty to look forward to with Penacony’s impending release.
