Background Information:

Brief History: Astra was born the oldest of a set of twin daughters to Argent Silverleaf and Eleece Bluethrush. They were born on what most humans refer to as All Hallows Eve, and at the hour of her birth a star exploded. The Dolen’er believed that her soul is a shard of that star.

When Astra turned two, her mother was killed in a raid so she spent her childhood being raised by her mother and father’s family and in the Shroudling Court by a woman named Ista Kaimelar (who later became her father’s second wife) while her father dealt with the pain of losing his wife. She spent a total of 2056 years in Draelond during the 1000 year war that raged on Arlsyn. A year after she returned home, she met Conor Urdrul and they began courting and were eventually engaged, however, during the story Starlight Path Astra was stuck by self doubt that she was good enough for Conor, after seeing him interact with another woman during the story of Book of Souls (chronologically Book of Souls comes before Starlight Path). As a result when Conor came to find her she let him go without telling him the true reason why. It was something that she regretted deeply.

Astra refused to leave Sha’dar for another ten years where she began her training with the Goddess of Dusk. When she was 2472 she assisted in the Diirlathe war known as Laer Drae Sa’Dar.
