All Kafka Questions and Answers

What are the Truths and Lies

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (7)
During the game you play with Kafka during her Companion Mission, you get to ask her two questions. Kafka will answer the questions with a truth then a lie or a lie then the truth.

It may be tough to find out which answers are the truth, so here is a list of all the topics, the questions you can ask Kafka, and Kafka's answers to all of them!

Ask About Myself

Who am I?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

You are an artificial body created for the purpose of hosting a Stellaron. From the moment of your birth, it was your destiny to receive the Stellaron at Herta Space Station. Before that task was completed, I was responsible for protecting you, as well as teaching you general knowledge, common sense, and combat skills. The reason why you don’t remember is that I wiped your memory before the operation at Herta Space Station.

Lie

You?... At first, you were a being accidentally created by an Aeon, with a body but no soul. Elio guided me to you, and you were given a soul. That’s nothing to say about your past. You only remember me because I was the one with you when your soul was born.

How am I able to host a Stellaron?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

Because you are created for that purpose – your body has been transformed by the power of an Aeon. You are immune to Stellaron contamination. Therefore, you could say that you are a one-of-a-kind Stellaron vessel.

Lie

The Stellaron in question was modified. After seizing it, Herta conducted a lot of research – it’s the only Stellaron in the universe that doesn’t contaminate humans. As soon as Herta got bored, she forgot about the whole thing, but all her research was recorded in Screwllum’s database. Silver Wolf retrieved it when she hacked into planet Screwllum... And so Elio saw a new future possibility.

What is my connection to you?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

One day, Elio handed you over to me. He said that things continue to transpire according to future possibilities he foresaw, you could eventually change me, and I would change you. In other words, you and I are each other’s destiny.

Lie

Genetically speaking, you are my child. A quarter of the data that makes up your body comes from me. Of course, neither Silver Wolf, Bladie, nor Sam are well-suited for looking after a child... So the burden of mentoring you fell on me. It was a stressful job, I dumped you on the train as soon as I got a chance.

Ask About Blade

Who is Blade?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

I don’t know, Bladie didn’t tell me – he said he doesn’t know either. When he woke up, he didn’t remember anything. Sometime later, a woman found him. She taught him swordplay, then killed him, over and over again, until it was too much for him to bear. Elio ordered Sam and me to find Bladie and return with him. According to Elio, Bladie’s swordplay and immortality have important uses. That’s all I know.

Lie

He is a long-life species, apparently he was a Sword Champion of the Xianzhou at some point. The Ten Lord Commission planned to execute him, but he managed to escape from Shackling Prison. He was severely injured – he forgot nearly everything. Elio ordered Sam and me to find Bladie and return with him. According to Elio, Bladie’s swordplay and immortality have important uses. That’s all I know.

What is the connection between Blade and Dan Heng?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

Apparently, they used to be good friends... Well, good friends who were bad for each other. Bladie forgot nearly everything, so he doesn’t remember it well. Together, they did something bad – something terrible. It led to horrific consequences. That’s the information I managed to piece together. Bladie refused to tell me the details.

Lie

Master and disciple, Bladie said that in Dan Heng’s previous life, Dan Heng was his apprentice. Long time ago, several of Blade’s apprentices joined forces to kill him. After his revival, Bladie had forgotten nearly everything, but he remember the night his apprentices killed him. He’ve been searching for the whole universe for those who took his life... To make them pay in blood.

Ask About Kafka

Who are you?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

The old me? I used to be a Devil Hunter. I grew up on a planet contaminated by Stellaron: Pteruges V – “New Babylon”. Humans there don’t know what fear is – the concept itself simply doesn’t exist. When people don’t feel fear, they are dominated by desire and pleasure – they become “devils”. When Elio found me, I was in a middle of a mission... And the condition he offered me caught my interest.

Lie

The old me? I used to be a Knight of Beauty. We worshipped Idrila, the Aeon of Beauty. We vowed to guard their beauty with the sword, but one day they suddenly disappeared. I lost my faith and was recruited by Elio... That’s how I joined the Stellaron Hunters.

Why did you join the Stellaron Hunters?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

Because I wanted to change myself. I have no mechanism for “fear”. There is an empty space in my mind and my heart, but I am unable to perceive it. Changing that part of myself isn’t something I can do alone. Elio can help me, if I follow his instructions.

Lie

Because I have the future that I want. As I told you, Elio is able to glimpse through possibilities. As long as I follow the instructions, he promised to tell me what it would take to move towards the future I wanted.

Venture Into a Whole New Topic

Is destiny predetermined?

Kafka's Answer
Truth No.
Lie Yes.

One plus one equals two, right?

Kafka's Answer
Truth

Correct. Very clever. But was it worth sacrificing a question to determine whether the last answer was true or false? Tough to say.

Lie

Wrong. Very clever. But was it worth sacrificing a question to determine whether the last answer was true or false? Tough to say.

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (12)
Once you answer Kafka's message, head to the Divination Commission and talk to her. Here, you will have two choices that you can choose from. These choices affect the Companion Mission and how it plays out, so choose carefully.

Take Out the Roaming Enemies

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (13)

Answer Kafka's First Question

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (14)
Kafka will ask the first question for the game, so you have to answer it. Pick any of the options that you want as this will not affect how the Companion Mission plays out.

Once you are done, Kafka will ask you to get rid of the Cloud Knights that are nearby before continuing with the game.

Take Out the Cloud Knights

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (15)
Talk to the Cloud Knights nearby and you can choose to try and persuade them to leave or just take them out. The easier way would be to take them out since this just involves a short battle between you and the Cloud Knights.

Once finished with the Cloud Knights, go back to Kafka and talk to her to continue the game.

Ask Kafka Your Question

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (16)
After talking with Kafka, you get to ask your question for her to answer. Pick one of the topics and choose from the questions to proceed. Kafka will then tell you her answer and she will ask you to fight enemies again.

Fight the Enemies Or Prevent the Battle

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (17)
During this point in the Companion Mission, you will have two options. You can take out the enemies as instructed by Kafka or you can prevent the battles from happening. Preventing the battle is purely optional and fighting the enemies outright is faster.

If you choose to fight the battles, head back to Kafka after you fight the enemies. If you choose to prevent the battles, you must solve a puzzle for both the gate and an Aurumaton nearby.

Solve the Gate's Puzzle

The gate's puzzle is simple and is just Abacus Circuitry. Once you solve it, head to the Aurumaton nearby and solve its puzzle as well.

Solve the Aurumaton's Puzzle

Just like the gate's puzzle, Aurumaton's puzzle is simple also. Once you solve it, head back to Kafka.

Answer Kafka's Second Question

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (18)
Kafka will ask you her second question, so you have to answer it again. Pick any of the options that you like and then it will be your turn to ask your last question.

Ask Kafka Your Last Question

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (19)
Ask your last question by picking any of the options and proceed. Kafka will answer it and Yanqing will arrive on the scene. Yanqing will try to arrest Kafka, so you have to fight him.

Jump to Questions and Answers

Fight Cloud Knight Lieutenant: Yanqing

Kafka Quest Guide - Letter from a Strange Woman | Honkai: Star Rail|Game8 (20)
Yanqing's fight is pretty simple. Just like in the Trailblaze Mission, you have to destroy all his swords so you can damage his Toughness bar. Just take all the swords out first and you should have no problem with this fight.
