Penacony Story & History
Penacony, the Planet of Festivities, is a planet mentioned in Honkai: Star Rail. It is currently inhabited by the Family, a faction that follows Xipe, the Aeon of Harmony.
Shortly before the end of the Astral Express Crew's adventures at Jarilo-VI, the Family at Penacony issued formal invitations to many galactic factions for the first time in history; among the invited factions were the IPC and the Astral Express. As such, Himeko planned on making Penacony their next destination, only to be intercepted by Kafka's report of a Stellaron eruption on Xianzhou Luofu. The crew decided to follow Kafka's intel and changed their destination to the Luofu.
When Akivii was alive, Penacony was a prison planet used by the Interastral Peace Corporation (IPC) to exile criminals. However, they lost control over it when Stellaron corrosion broke out, and Penacony took refuge with Xipe and become a member of the Family.
