  • One-Woman Army: Due to her Sword Saint Powers, she could easily take down an entire army by herself.
  • Posthumous Character: She died fourteen years before the start of the main storyline and we only get to know her through her husband's flashbacks.

  • Resigned to the Call: All she wanted to do is live like a normal girl, and yet she was given the Sword Saint's blessings, resigning her to a life of fighting.

  • Tomboyish Ponytail: She wore a ponytail during battle.
  • The Von Trope Family: Her family name is van Astrea.
