The Twilight Ascension
A former gang leader/slaver, turned captive.
Astara up until recently ran a gang that worked heavily with the Shadow Network in the capture and trafficking of slaves, especially those dealing in the magical arts. Her gang was working to capture the PC party on a few occasions, before the PCs retaliated and destroyed her gang, in the process capturing her.
She is now a captive of the PC party, although is seemingly gaining their trust as a potential ally as she doesn’t look to have any other options. Her gang being destroyed, and her failure likely to result in her death if she went back to her former employer.
She and Maluke seem to be at odds on most things, although that rivalry seems to be spurred on by Maluke, and Astara seems indifferent about the whole thing.
