Caught in the whirlwind of ‘Honkai: Star Rail’, we plunge into the depth of its mystique narrative and get a closer look at the long-life species, the Xianzhou characters. Player ‘AnAltAndAHalf’ brings a comprehensive explanation for anyone perplexed by Xianzhou natives’ ages and lifespans.
Unraveling the Mystery
- Xianzhou natives, the long-life species, boast an average lifespan of rough 800 years.
- These species morph into monstrous creatures, mara-struck when their time comes, usually around 800 years.
- While their brains develop slower compared to typical humans, long-life species halt physical aging after reaching adulthood, which explains their youthful appearance.
Discrepancies and Inconsistencies
Diving further into the deep-sea of this discussion, we observe some inconsistencies. Are they language barriers, plot holes or just something to keep the game intriguing? As per ‘AnAltAndAHalf’, the writers sometimes goof up and creates confusion. After all, the whole concept of immortality is fictional and can never be entirely glitch-free.
Indeed, understanding Xianzhou lifespans becomes a series of precarious balancing acts. ‘gifcartel’ aptly questions the source of Jing Yuan’s age; registration of logic is actually quite tough when talking about ages in the thousands! Returning to ‘Lunacie’s’ remark on how long-lived species are often interpreted through the lens of ‘dog years’, we might agree it’s better not to overthink it.
Keeping up with the Characters
The constant surprises that come with character aging in ‘Honkai: Star Rail’ indeed create an interesting dynamic. Take ‘jpsklr’s’ sudden realization of Jing Yuan’s age, for instance. The ‘Responsible-War-9389’s’ query about when Xianzhou natives mentally and physically mature also reflects the captivating allure of the game’s lore.
Whether it’s a deliberate creative choice or a mere oversight, the unique aging process of the Xianzhou natives is undeniably a source of fascination and a testament to the game’s intricate, immersive world-building. While the whole concept might seem hard to swallow, with thousand-year-old characters still looking 25, it’s surely just another part of the ‘Honkai: Star Rail’ charm. Its best to soak it all up and enjoy the ride!
