▍Honkai Star Rail Story & Worldview
Honkai: Star Rail features a game world awaiting discovery with elements of myths and legends blended into the space sci-fi story. In this universe, there are the Aeons, incarnations of universal principles that are able to freely travel between infinite worlds using some kind of primitive force.
The galaxy is packed with worlds that have unique landscapes and stories; the Aeons roaming the universe uphold their own beliefs, among whom there is the Destruction, who regards the universe as a fallacy and civilization as cancer, casting seeds of a ruin called Stellarons across the galaxy.
The protagonist, who was implanted with a Stellaron, embarks on a trip aboard the Astral Express with a group of passengers who claim to have inherited the spirit of the Trailblaze, pursuing the trails of Aeons to explore the realms of the universe.
