The Traveler's Backstory and Origins

  • Had a relatively normal(?) childhood.
    • (Traveler): Well, as a child, I was taught not to play with my food.[1]
    • (Traveler): Amber often runs errands for Lisa. Older siblings asking their younger siblings to do things for them so that they can slack off is a rather common practice...

  • Addressed by a mysterious individual named K·K. In the Honkai Impact 3rd 2021 anniversary livestream, an individual with the same name was named as one of the MANTISes of the organization Fire MOTH, whose genes were spliced with a Honkai Beast named Brahma.

      "Welcome to a new world."
      - K·K[6]
