Class: Bow Paladin >
Approx. Age: 21
A Bow Paladin who is part of the Crimean Royal Knights.
Born to House Damiel, a noble family in Begnion, Astrid was originally set to be wed in a strategic marriage with Senator Lekain –a man older than her own father. She took her chance to escape and ended up joining the Knights of Begnion. After assisting the Crimean Liberation Army during the Mad King’s War, she joined the Crimean Royal Knights –thus severing her connections with Begnion entirely.
She has come a long way from the time she first joined the Knights of Begnion and could barely keep up with a march. The experience she gained from fighting in such a large war made her an excellent bow user that is worthy of being a Crimean Royal Knight. This achievement left her with no lingering regrets toward her motherland. However, there was another reason for her being in Crimea: her “Fated Person” Makalov. Over the last three years, her affection for him deepened to the point where she says nothing but praise for him. This leads to puzzled looks from Calill, Marcia, and even Makalov himself! It does not bother her in the slightest, however. She truly cares deeply about Makalov’s happiness and well-being, a fact that is well-observed throughout the royal capital.
