Honkai: Star Rail has revealed Gallagher as a new Fire Abundance character coming to the game with the launch of the Version 2.1 update, currently expected to debut in March. With the release of Honkai: Star Rail‘s newest playable world right around the corner, HoYoverse has given fans plenty of reasons to be excited about the new world. Penacony’s release is expected to bring three new playable characters to Star Rail, more areas to explore, and even new gameplay mechanics. Now, players are being teased with even more characters to come.
During the lead-up to Honkai: Star Rail‘s highly-anticipated Version 2.0 Special Program, HoYoverse has begun to roll out reveals for the following version’s characters. Version 2.1 has been confirmed to feature two new five-star characters joining the roster, with Aventurine and the highly-anticipated Acheron releasing. Acheron was previously teased during Honkai: Star Rail’s Game Awards trailer, with fans speculating that she may be Star Rail‘s version of popular Honkai Impact 3rd character Raiden Mei. The newest reveal from the game is now introducing players to Version 2.1’s lone four-star character, Gallagher.

A new post shared to Honkai: Star Rail‘s social media accounts reveals new character Gallagher, a security officer for Penacony’s Bloodhound Family. Gallagher is described as a “slovenly and indolent mixologist,” with his teaser image introducing the character as a bartender. The post reveals both his Element and Path, suggesting Gallagher will play a supportive role within Honkai: Star Rail as a Fire character in the Abundance Path. Gallagher will be the first Abundance character to wield the Fire element, with Ice as the last unrepresented element for Honkai: Star Rail‘s healer class.
While the official reveal from HoYoverse does not provide any details about his kit, leaks have already offered several hints about Gallagher’s gameplay within Honkai: Star Rail. According to previous leaks, Gallagher will act as a mix between a healer and a debuffer, providing increases to Weakness Break damage and on-hit healing. Gallagher is also expected to play a major role in the story of Honkai: Star Rail, first teased during Star Rail‘s Version 1.6 Special Program. Gallagher and Version 2.1 are currently expected to launch on March 20.
With teasers for Version 2.1’s characters already releasing, HoYoverse is gearing up to pull back the curtain on Honkai: Star Rail‘s next big update. Honkai: Star Rail‘s Version 2.0 Special Program is expected to air later this week, bringing with it the official reveal of the world of Penacony. The update is also expected to showcase gameplay for new five-star characters Black Swan and Sparkle, as well as four-star character Misha. With Penacony’s expected launch less than two weeks away, Honkai: Star Rail players are set to receive a plethora of new content in the near future.
