Appearance[]

As the youngest of her classmates, Bronya has a short and slim stature with piercing silver eyes. She keeps her silver-gray hair tied up in signature double pigtails in a drill shape and includes a matching ribbon that coordinates with her battlesuits. Her main weapon is a set of cannons (that function either as typical cannons and lasers) that are wielded by her robotic companion, Project Bunny 19C. Thanks to her robotic legs, Bronya has the ability to both walk and float, though she rarely bothers with the former.

Personality[]

Due to an event in her past, Bronya rarely shows emotion except in the direst of circumstances. However, she does have a fondness for sarcasm, oftentimes referring to Kiana as "Kiana Idiotka" and getting called "Bratnya" in return. She also collects and displays HOMU merchandise, something she has in common with Principal Theresa.

Despite her lone wolf personality, Bronya does work well with the other girls and is shown to protect Mei against Kiana's constant advances. Her cold personality and prowess with Project Bunny allow her to take a more back-line role in battle, where she can use her cool head to deploy support abilities or devastating long-range attacks. Before her injuries that lead to her robotic limbs, Bronya is shown to be skilled at hand-to-hand, improvisational combat, and is a supremely skilled sniper. While she is still the main sniper of the Valkyries, she rarely has a need for physical combat and simply uses Project Bunny to occasionally knock back enemies.

History[]

Before the 3rd Honkai War[]

Bronya Zaychik was born in Siberia, shortly before the second Honkai incident. The Honkai attack in 2000 caused Siberia and surrounding regions to fall into disorder and many children were placed into the Army, where they were trained to become cold-blooded killers. Bronya was one such orphan, and became a skilled sniper earning the nickname, Ural Silver Wolf. Bronya was sent to Russia to assassinate a high priority target, Cocolia (sometimes spelled Kakaria). She failed, and was instead captured by her target, who brought her to her own orphanage. There, Cocolia became Bronya's mother. Unbeknownst to Bronya and the other children, the orphanage was part of Anti-Entropy and they were injected with the Honkai virus for Experiment X-10. The experiment allowed human cells and the Honkai virus to coexist within the human body and was hoped to be a way to ensure humanity's survival. If successful, the test subjects would theoretically be able to control matter on a subatomic or quantum level, but all seven children who had been tested thus far had died as a result.. Bronya was registered as the eighth test subject.

At the orphanage, Bronya befriended Seele Vollerei. The two of them became close friends and shared a room. Two years after being brought to the orphanage, however, Seele was kidnapped by human traffickers hoping to sell her for her special abilities. Bronya stormed the kidnappers' hideout on her own, breaking the guard's neck with one of her stockings and then killing the men inside with only a knife for a weapon. Bronya's skill at killing and bloodied appearance frightened Seele, and so Bronya promised never to hurt anyone again.

Years later, in 2013, a classmate named Sin Mal became jealous of Bronya and Seele's friendship, and pushed Bronya down the stairs, injuring her legs. Bronya lied about her injury to Cocolia, saying she fell down the stairs by accident, but her mother saw through Bronya’s lie. Rather than call her out, however, she simply reminded Bronya to say her goodbyes before the start of Experiment X-10. Afterwards, Seele told Bronya that she had witnessed the assault from Sin Mal. Bronya assured Seele that she would protect her while keeping her promise to never hurt anyone. After the kidnapping incident though, Seele experienced an awakening of another self. This other self convinces her to take revenge against Sin Mal on Bronya's behalf, and mentally tortured Sin Mal. Seele returned to her senses and discovered the page Sin Mal was holding, which revealed that Bronya was set to participate in Experiment X-10. Seele confronted Cocolia, revealing that she has a stigmata mark on her body, and asked to take Bronya's place in the experiment, fearing her friend's death.

The next day, Bronya awakened to find Seele and Cocolia missing. While she searched for the two, Seele proceeded with the experiment. Although the tests were briefly successful, Seele's body began to break down on a molecular level. Her other self, a stigmata, appeared to inform her that the power was too much for her to handle, but that she could visit Bronya one last time. Seele took off towards the orphanage, pursued by Anti-Entropy's mechs, but just before reaching Bronya her body fully disintegrated and she disappeared. Bronya found Seele’s hairpin that had been left behind and cries. Cocolia informs Bronya that Seele attempted the X-10 Experiment, but it resulted in failure and Seele is now trapped in a quantum state.

Bronya forced Cocolia to allow her to take part in the experiment too. Cocolia reluctantly agreed, but warned Bronya that she would only attempt it for five minutes, or else Bronya's injured legs will become infected by Honkai energy and be destroyed, likely killing her in the process. Bronya, however, had already decided that if she was able to join Seele, she would stay in the quantum state with her rather than willingly return. The experiment began and Bronya was able to meet Seele, who convinced a reluctant Bronya to go back. Bronya promised that she would search for a way to save Seele. As the Honkai infection grew within Bronya, Seele gifted her the power "Rebuild" and kissed her, sending her back to the real world. When she awoke, a giant robotic protector has appeared, later named Project Bunny 19C. However, Bronya lost many things from the results of the experiment, including the use of her legs and ability to feel emotions. Bronya was later fitted with an exoskeleton to allow her to move, and driven by her promise to Seele, Bronya — with Cocolia’s aid — tried many methods to save her friend. None were successful.

Finally, they pinned their hopes on the power of a Herrscher to bring Seele back. This Herrscher — the Herrscher of Thunder, living inside Raiden Mei — would be their last hope. Cocolia sent Bronya to Nagazora city to retrieve the awakened Mei, but instead, Kiana Kaslana interfered, helping to seal away the Herrscher within Mei. Bronya snuck aboard Murata Himeko's battleship after the battle and later became a student at St. Freya Academy with her new friends, Mei and Kiana.

Honkai Impact 3 Mainline[]

Becoming a Valkyria[]

Cocolia had secretly adopted orphans and took them to her orphanage. She chooses specific orphans that are capable of withstanding Honkai energy in order to advance the X-10 Experiment. Bronya was one of the initial test subjects, but Seele took her place after showing Cocolia her Stigmata's power. The experiment ended in failure, as while the desired results were obtained, Seele dissolved into a quantum state and could only be communicated with on that plane.

Shortly after, Bronya learnt everything from Cocolia, and demanded access to the X-10 Experiment by threatening to commit suicide if she was denied. Cocolia informed her because of her wounded leg, she could not stay longer than 5 minutes inside the quantum state. In reality, Bronya had no intentions of returning, as she was determined to be with Seele at all costs. Seele was surprised to see Bronya and knew that she had taken part in the experiment and begged her to leave, though Bronya refused to do so.

The allotted time had passed, and Anti-Entropy's researchers attempted to extract her from the quantum plane, but she resisted all of their attempts. The Honkai energy began to damage her brain and legs. Seele confessed her feelings to Bronya, and the two made a promise that Bronya would find a way to bring Seele back to the real world. Seele also gave Bronya what she discovered inside a box, the power of "Rebuild", which was Remodelled Bunny 19C. She then surprised her with a kiss, before letting her know that she would have to return the favor the next time they met. As a result of staying in the quantum plane longer than intended, Bronya lost the ability to feel a wide range of emotions, required advanced legs prosthesis in order to move and had a biochip inserted in her brain to maintain survival.

Her last hope was to have Seele manifest via a Herrscher. The girl was revealed to be Raiden Mei, whose father, Ryoma, had sealed it. Cocolia tasked Bronya with bringing an awakened Mei to her, but this was unexpectedly stopped by Kiana Kaslana, a fellow Valkyrja and student.

The Mysterious Battleship[]

Sometime during the 3rd Honkai Eruption, a mysterious battleship appeared. When Kiana fell into a coma, Bronya immediately linked her mind to a simulation to explore what was causing Kiana to lapse. After dispelling the entity and securing the ship, the entity told Kiana that the ship was hers. Bronya was tasked with controlling the ship, but she suddenly turned into her Black Nucleus form when Cocolia decided to control her and attacked Kiana and Mei. She was put down by the two and did not recall what had just happened. Bronya would later be tasked alongside Kiana and Mei to find the four gems to power the ship. The first gem was the Gem of Desire, which resided in the abandoned New Zealand branch.

The Fourth Herrscher[]

Upon arriving at the remains of the New Zealand branch, they immediately found a single girl, who introduced herself as Wendy and revealed that she has the gem they were looking for in her legs, causing them to get damaged. Bronya had sympathy for Wendy because she was disabled like her and offered her a ride to show her what it meant to fly. While the gem occasionally caused her to become a pseudo-Herrscher. Bronya tried to persuade her to stand down, which she eventually did. However, she suddenly turned into her Black Nucleus form again and started attacking Wendy, who now believed Bronya had lied to her and attacked the group. Wendy was eventually weakened, and Anti-Entropy mechas suddenly appeared. Her adoptive mother, Cocolia, was behind the scheme and departed with her, Wendy and Mei to their headquarters, prompting Kiana to rescue all of them.

The Anti-Entropy Incident[]

Bronya would eventually help Kiana, Theresa enter the Anti-Entropy headquarters despite the obvious trap Theresa suspected. When they approached Mei, Cocolia tried to have Bronya battle Kiana, but she refused, revealing to her that because of the kindness Mei had showed her, she removed her biochip even though it has the great risk of dying. After defeating the mecha MSR-7 "Godfather", both Bronya and Wendy were immediately rushed into intensive care. Wendy did not survive but the efforts of Schicksal's medical team ensured that Bronya survived, albeit in a comatose state.

Recovering her Memory[]

While in her comatose state, Fu Hua used her powers to enter Bronya's mind. Since she had forgotten everything about herself, Fu Hua told Idol that she was the Sage and helped her break out of prison. She was referred to as the Idol. During the escape, she also encountered a HOMU and freed it from the prison and attended a competition to see which HOMU could control the Golem (Remodelled Bunny 19C). When the Idol approached the Golem, it woke and expended its powers before testing her, which she passed. The Idol would later assist the HOMUs in fighting the witches.

Upon encountering the Ice Witch (Snowy Sniper) was defeated and threatened to kill a HOMEI, though HOMU distracted her enough for the Idol to kill the Ice Witch. The Ice Witch represented Bronya's loneliness, which the Idol absorbed. They then moved on to the Aegis Witch (Yamabuki Armor), a paranoid witch who relied on a shield. Upon defeating her, the Idol stated that the shield was full of discontent before killing her, taking those traits in. The last witch, the Dark Witch (Black Nucleus) attacked the HOMU kingdom but was defeated by the Idol. The Sage revealed that the Idol had the power of playback, but she did not give up and continued on her mission. Upon battling and defeating the final witch, the Dark Witch cursed Bronya to be used as a weapon, which Bronya had finally accepted and took in the last remaining remnants of her personality. She also recognized the Sage as the Monitor and chastised her for invading her mind, even though the Monitor stated that she would forget all of the recent events when she woke up.

Trivia[]
