Hiraki Corale is a Hylotl adventurer extraordinaire, famed for her bravery, tenacity, sunny can-do attitude, and stunning obliviousness as to just how much trouble she causes. She travels the universe to learn about other races and cultures, and the field notes she's written on her adventures have spread far and wide.
She has been chased by angry Floran, chased off of Avian airships, chased by angry Glitch, chased by the Miniknog... it's hard to find a species she hasn't somehow ticked off and had to bolt from. Luckily she is an expert athlete, well-prepared for most eventualities, and is just plain-old incredibly lucky.
Her weapon of choice is a rocket launcher.
The player will not meet Hiraki in-person, only get to know her by collecting and reading her Lore books found randomly in villages and dungeons.
The following material was introduced in the Beta and has since been removed or altered. As such, it is no longer considered to be a part of Starbound canon.
In the early "Koala" Beta versions of the game, Hiraki had several more adventures. Many of these involve concepts and characters that were downplayed, altered or eliminated from the game, such as Greenfinger the scientist or USCM Bunkers.
Hiraki appeared in the two-page comic story "McVicar Makes a Friend", posted to the Starbound forums in April 2014. In it, she stumbles up the human Charlton McVicar and helps him escape a group of bloodthirsty Agaran. Like the deleted lore, this story is non-canon now, due to the changes made to the Agaran.
- Her design was created by Bietol as an entry for Design Hiraki Corale competition.
- Unfortunately, it is impossible to make a comic-accurate re-creation of Hiraki as a character without mods. Her headfin style and clothing have no in-game equivalents, but you can get vaguely close.
