Kafka Truth and Lies Answers Featured

Being the most anticipated character in Honkai: Star Rail thus far, Kafka just has that much presence. And her Companion Mission was also made quite unique in various ways, from having tons of missable dialogues to being entirely skippable if you want to! And in this article, we’ll focus on the former, which is the most important. Lore-wise, at least.

Since this is one of the main features of her Mission, there will obviously be spoilers for “Letter from a Strange Woman,” as well as various other aspects of the game. With that out of the way, time to see through this beautiful woman’s lies!

All Truth and Lies Answers in Kafka’s Companion Mission

The whole Kafka mission’s all about choices. If you don’t abruptly end it early, you can get tons of interesting dialogue choices from her when you meet her at the Divination Commission. Once you defeat your first batch of enemies, she proposes to play a Truth and Lies game. Both players ask each other two questions, and the answers must be one truth and one lie. 

Kafka gives her word she’ll abide by the rules, so it’s time to get some huge lore dumps out of her. And yes, she’s reliable and will give us some truths, despite her usually deceiving nature. We only get to ask two questions (one truth and one lie), so you would need multiple accounts to see all answers for yourself, but they’re all here.

You can initially ask her about three subjects, all of which have various questions. This leads to a total of 18 answers when counting the extra options available in the second round. The questions/answers are the following:

Ask About Myself

1 – Who am I?

TruthYou 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.
LieYou?… 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. 

2 – How am I able to host a Stellaron?

TruthBecause 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.
LieThe 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.

3 – What is my connection to you?

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.
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

1 – Who is Blade?

TruthI 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.
LieHe 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.

2 – What is the connection between Blade and Dan Heng?

TruthApparently, 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.
LieMaster 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

1 – Who are you?

TruthThe 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.
LieThe 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 join the Stellaron Hunters.

2 – Why did you join the Stellaron Hunters?

TruthBecause 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.
LieBecause 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.

During your last question, you can pick a fourth option to impress Kafka. The answers to those are the following:

Venture Into a Whole New Topic

1 – Is destiny predetermined?


2 – One plus one equals two, right?

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

How to Know if Kafka is Lying or Telling the Truth

If you choose to tell Kafka the truth when she asks you if you like her, she’ll first answer you honestly and lie later. If you lie to her first, she’ll also lie to you at her first question. That was the case for me and some other playthroughs I’ve seen, so there’s little to no reason not to believe this is how the Truth and Lies game works.

The “one-plus-one” question can always confirm the veracity of her statements if you’re still in doubt. Most claims can also be confirmed through various info crumbs we got around the game. Blade and Dan Heng’s relationship might be the best example. Blade remembering the Trailblazer can also be taken as proof that Kafka mentored them at a point but wiped their memory later.

This was a quick but amazing Companion Mission in the game, fit for a great character like Kafka. If you were lucky enough to get her, you should definitely check our build guide to make sure she’s built as strong as possible.
