Brief History: The daughter of Hilda Ahlstrom and Morten Norling, Astrid does not remember her father who was lost at sea when she was still an infant. Her mother died of a fever when she was seven years old and subsequently she and her elder brother, Arvid, were raised by Ingrid Eld. Following the events of The Sword of Valor, Arvid and Astrid joined Ingrid in her exile and have begun to journey far from the lands they once called home.

Other Information:
  • Like most Vallachians, Astrid's accent is similar to that of Terran Scandinavia, her native dialect being reminiscent of Old Norse.
