Himeko Basic Info
Path: The Erudition
Affiliation: Astral Express
Himeko is an adventurous scientist who encountered and repaired a stranded train as a child. She now ventures across the universe with her train currently named the Astral Express, operating as its navigator.
Himeko is a powerful damage dealer, capable of taking down large groups of enemies with her potent AoE and blast attacks, and her strong burn DoT.
