Astraea is a viera formerly of Eruyt Village in Golmore Jungle. At a young age she left her home and forsook the Green Word after a Garlean scouting unit invaded the jungle and killed several of the male Wood-warders in an attempt to seize control of Eruyt. Among the dead was her twin brother, whom she was very close to in childhood. Grieving and aimless, Astraea set out to escape the Garlean Empire's stranglehold on Dalmasca. She successfully evaded capture and arrived in Kugane.
The adolescent viera struggled to adjust to the bustling city, and was a noticeably rare stranger. She sought work wherever she could conceal herself from the public eye, eventually becoming a ship hand on the East Aldenard Trading Company's trade routes. Astraea was content with only earning enough to provide food and lodging for herself. Nothing more, nothing less.
25 hume years passed and Astraea, now a young adult, made her way to Thanalan via the Company's trade routes. She traveled to Ul'dah, where she took up arms in the city's famed colosseum to earn her keep. Her naturally graceful fighting techniques wowed spectator's all around. On one fateful day she caught the attention of a Lominsan mercenary who answered to the alias "Madmartigan." The hulking roegadyn was known to scout for potential recruits at the colosseum and hiring them for his contracted missions. How fortunate for the viera that Madmartigan was seeking skilled fighters to aid the Dalmascan Resistance.
Madmartigan approached Astraea with his usual proposition, to which she scoffed and declined on his offer. She then expressed her disgust in Madmartigan for taking advantage of people who were desperate to break free from their oppressors for profit. The roegadyn clarified that the Resistance was not paying him for aid, and that he would be paying his mercenaries out of pocket. He then recounted to Astraea his life as a Garlean prisoner and how he was freed by Lominsa's Crimson Fleet. This earned Madmartigan the reluctant viera's trust and her acceptance to the offer.
Sadly, the Garlean Empire proved too great. The resistance failed and nearly all of Madmartigan's mercenaries were killed. Astraea was the only able-bodied survivor left who could fight off the Imperial forces. Astraea successfully saved everyone in her care, but at a cost. She was badly battered and permanently deafened in the skirmish. Madmartigan's injuries proved to great and he was forced to retire as a mercenary. When he reunited with Astraea months later, he bestowed his estate in thanks for saving his life and the lives of the surviving resistance fighters.
Astraea now travels the world as a bounty hunter and hired guard protecting innocent civilians from Garlean forces and other unsavory wretches.
