Honkai Star Rail choice

Once you’ve finished the opening tutorial in Honkai Star Rail, you’ll be asked to choose which protagonist you’d like to use. So, should you choose Stelle or Caelus? We’ve got the answer for you here.

Honkai Star Rail has a lot of great characters in its ever-expanding roster, but the one you’ll be spending the most time with is the in-game protagonist as they act as your avatar outside of combat.

What makes the decision slightly harder is that you can’t change the Trailblazer later in the game, so players are understandably wondering whether Stelle or Caelus is the better choice in the game, and if there are any crucial differences between the male and female versions of the character.

Here’s everything you need to know about Honkai Star Rail’s protagonists to help make your decision a bit easier.

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter whether you pick Caelus in Honkai: Star Rail or Stelle. They both have the same stats and profile, making the only difference between the two their gender.

However, despite the two available characters being one and the same, you cannot change your mind once you choose, so it’s vital you pick carefully, even if their stats and profile are exactly the same.
