023 Astore

A confidant of Ostia who lives in the “hidden” world.
Works for Ostia as a spy. He joined Roy’s party in order to convey information that would help rescue Lilina during the Ostian insurrection. In the past, as a spy, he seemed to have lied about his identity to infiltrate other countries, but the rest of what occurred still remains a mystery. After the war he returned to being a spy, working as a “shadow.”

For a spy, it must not be known to others that you are a spy. Not just in appearance, but also in spirit. An act where one can drink alcohol on duty and talk to anyone in a lighthearted tone without letting their true face being known is what it may entail. If that is the case, then Astore without a doubt can be called a spy.
With that line of work, Astore is a man of many mysteries. However, his past unexpectedly comes to be known in a particular support conversation with Igrene.

 密偵は、自分が密偵であることを他人に知られてはいけない。それは見た目だけでなく、心の中もそうである。任務中に酒を飲んでみたり、誰に対してもからかうような口調で相手したりするのも、本当の姿を知られない太めの演技かもしれない。だとしたら、アストールは間違いなく一流の密偵といえるだろう。
 アストールはその任務がら、謎の多い人物だが、特にイグレーヌとの支援会話では、彼の意外すぎる過去を知ることができる。
