Astrid of Guilon
Left behind by her Father at birth, Astrid grew up never knowing Birger. She was raised by her mother and the only life she knows is the one in the village. Looking like a younger version of her mother, yet before the pride and joy completely vanished.
She is loner and outcast from the village, enjoys the solitary peace of the wilderness instead, and practising her magic arts and archery.
Astrid is an archer and ranged magic user, relying on raw power of witch magic and harnessing of natural eldritch forces to deal damage from a distance.
Astrid is your main character in the game and will be played and controlled by you. Your journey in Blood Bond defines her story.
Birger the Bastard
Birger is Astrid's biological father. He left her at childbirth, leaving his lover Johanna to take care of and raise the girl. Birger was always restless and a lifetime of adventuring and curiosity was not easily contained in village life.
Birger has a reputation that stretches far and wide around the area as a tough fighter and a seasoned battle hardened combatant. Always travelling solo or in small groups when needed, he has survived more adventures into the Shroud than he can count.
In his later years, the guilt of leaving Johanna and Astrid began to weigh on him and he began to drink heavily, taking a toll on his physical form.
Birger is a computer controlled sidekick in the game and will join Astrid on her journey.
