Black Swan is a five-star character. Her element is Wind, and her path is The Nihility. Wind characters are scarce in Star Rail, and Black Swan would be the fifth to join the group. Nihility characters are better known as debuffers because their skills affect enemies directly.
According to the information leaked, Black Swan will have the ability to reduce enemies’ defense and deal passive damage. Based on the information, players are comparing Black Swan to Silver Wolf, in the sense that both are characters with strong debuffs. The information leaked can be subject to change, and none of the skills or values are final.
