Astras are thought to be a race of angelic beings descended from the heavens. Unlike Valkyries, which appear frequently at the site of large battles, Astras only appear in particularly calamitous situations. These divine beings fly with large feathered wings and fight with flaming swords, igniting nearly everything they strike. They can also lash out with holy power and turn undead creatures. Astras also have the ability to magically heal the most serious wounds of virtually any creature.
Astras are most often found fighting alongside the Highmen, but will aid any of the good races in times of need.
