Honkai: Star Rail Wiki

The birth of an Aeon gives rise to a Path. The nature of the Paths remains a mystery, leaving us to draw an analogy in a way that mortals can understand: It's a philosophical concept of sorts.

Himeko

Paths are congregations of Imaginary energy, born as manifestations of universal philosophical concepts. Those who believe in and practice the concepts behind a certain path become Pathstriders, and the path that they happen to follow will change in accordance with their own philosophies and opinions. In some special cases, entities that manage to completely intertwine themselves with a path and explore its philosophical concepts to their entirety will become an Aeon.

In gameplay, paths are utilized as a class system for characters in the game, detailing which gameplay style their kit is designed for.

Paths and Aeons[]

Aeons can use Paths as THEY please after THEIR ascension and are linked to it for the rest of THEIR existence.

There are currently 18 known Paths, each with a corresponding Aeon and THEIR own followers.

Pathstriders[]

A person is considered to be on a Path when their will overlaps with that Path. Those who can do so are called Pathstriders.

Emanators[]

Emanators are individuals who have attained the permission of an Aeon to draw power from THEIR chosen Path. While not subservient to the Aeons, Emanators are as good as emissaries of the Aeons' wills in everyone else's eyes. Emanators have been stated and shown to be more powerful than regular Pathstriders, but their strength varies.

Different Aeons have different attitudes towards their Emanators; for instance, some Aeons regard Emanators as extensions of THEMSELVES and grant them much power, while other Aeons have no interest in creating Emanators. The Aeon Aha is said to grant mortals the power of THEIR Path at random in order to toy with them.[1]

These paths are mentioned in various media, such as the Aeons section of the Data Bank, but have not been released as part of gameplay. Playable characters that follow these paths in lore will instead have one of the above seven playable paths in gameplay.
