Honkai: Star Rail – Welt

“A seasoned member of the Express Crew.

The passion buried in his heart burns anew as he enjoys this fresh adventure.

Occasionally, he would sketch the experiences in a notebook.”


In Honkai: Star Rail, Welt is a 5-star Imaginary character. His Path is The Nihility, meaning he is designed to take on the role of Debuffer. This is reflected in most of his Combat Skills, as he has mechanics that reduce the enemy’s SPD and delay their actions.

His Traces focus mostly on dealing more DMG and buffing his ATK stat.

Other Welt Details

“The wise and sophisticated former Anti-Entropy Sovereign who inherits the name of the world — Welt. He has saved Earth from annihilation time and time again.

After the calamity ended, the heavy burden ordained by fate to Welt had been removed for a time, and he became an animation storyboard artist. However, after the conspiracy with St. Fountain came to a close, Welt had no choice but to venture with the initiator of the incident to the other side of the space portal.

Perhaps even he didn’t expect the new journey and companions that awaited him.”
