Syr Lady Astrid McAngus-Sethdragon is the current reigning grandmaster of The Order of the Shattered Fae and the queen of the Free Dominion.
Lady Astrid Sethdragon was born in 530 AoQ in the City Of Avalon (located on the Starlit Courts secondary worldship SCS Leviathan) alongside her Twin sister Cecilia Sethdragon. Her parents were Lady Calypso Sethdragon the now former grandmaster of The Mystic Dragons and Syr Noland Sethdragon former Shadowster of The Varangian Guard.
Astrid met Maelon when they went to school together, it was love at first sight for her. The two offend joked around about dating each other around their friends, which eventually led to them finally taking the leap and doing so in secret. While they were eager to share it, they soon realized that their respective parents would not have approved of such a union and as such, it remained secret. The only person that they ever told was Astrid’s twin sister Cecilia and only because she was really good at keeping secrets.
Once school was over, squirehood would take Maelon away from Astrid, as would her own duty, but they would always find excuses to get together mostly on The Leviathan. She would often sneak him up to her tower where her bedroom was and spend the whole day there enjoying each other’s company, Of course, they would also spend time on Sihi since it was easier to hide their actions away from their parent's prying eyes.
As time went on their relationship would grow deeper and more serious. One day Astrid would reveal to Maelon that she was with child, whom they would go on to name Madisyn Alissa Revna Morgana McAngus-Sethdragon. She would move up to the north to the arctic region of The Leviathan in order to keep the child a secret. It was a rough sacrifice but worthwhile in the end. They would hold a private wedding ceremony in the fort with only three guests attending, Cecilia, their medical aid from the Order of the Valkyrie and the Monk who was officiating it. Astrid would go on to say it was the second best day of her life, the first of course being the birth of their child.
They would spend the next four years in their new arctic fort, turning it into a well-loved home, that is until the events of the Dachia Crisis. Astrid would find herself, her daughter and her companion dragon kidnapped by Elenore Von Bathory, a former Order of Valkyries Doctor and dominionist contractor who was patently insane. She would bring them to her base on Dachia for a year until they would travel out to find Astrid a new home. Which they would find in the abandoned mining colony, then called New Haven. She would spend her first year there going back and forth between Dachia and New Haven. Near the end of the second year, she would have to beg Elenore to save her daughter’s life which she did by transferring the child’s consciousness into an organic body with mechanical implants, at the same time Bathory would convince Astrid to mother what would become her second child Arthur Aurelion Tybalt Maelon McAngus-Sethdragon. Bathory created him by mixing Astrid’s DNA with that of her late husband’s to create a child that she hoped would serve to torture Syr Loin McAngus her nemesis.
Both children would grow up to become speakers of the people of Kamelot, working with the citizens to insure they were treated fairly and that their lives were as good as they could hope to be.
The Dachia Criss
Lady Astrid was present during the Dachia Crisis alongside her mother Calypso and other members of the court, protecting Sihi from the Dominionists attempting to crash Sihi into Dachia, while her twin and her father were on The Leviathan preventing its own takeover attempt with the rest of the Mystic Dragons. When the Dominionists began to flee Sihi near the end of the crisis, she was rendered unconscious and kidnapped along with her dragon companion and her four-year-old daughter. Meanwhile, her mother and other fang members were slaughtered senselessly. She would be taken to Dachia for a short time before being hauled off-world, to another destination.
Syr Elenore von Bathory had taken Astrid under her wing and personally trained the girl in all of the dominionist ways. She focused on advanced interrogations, assassination, manipulation and covert operations. She had also spent time mastering the bleed art of Meta-Magic, and Decay, a potent and deadly combination. Between Elenore’s brainwashing and that she felt abandoned by the people of the court, she grew cold and cynical against her former Kinsmen, especially because one of them had murdered her husband. After saving her daughter's life, Bathory would offer her a chance to create another child with the DNA of her dead husband. Foolishly believing that it was her late husband’s wish for it to happen, she accepted, creating Prince Arthur. Astrid delusionally believed that Arthur through his father was destined to be the reincarnation of the High King and would bring unity to the divide between the Starlit Court and the Dominion. This was used by Countess Bathory to further the woman’s control over Astrid.
Twenty-Two years later she would find herself the leader of the thirds largest Dominion SubFaction with her two children by her side. While the other dominionist sub-factions focused on outright combating the Sihian court, The Gilded Knife provided necessary services throughout Beacon Space, taking on contracts and being the face of the Dominion to the rest of the sector, accepting quests and consisting of more charismatic individuals than usual. They would take on quests, much the same as the bulk of the Starlit Court, providing confusion about if the organization was really a terrorist organization or a benefit. It also contains the largest of the dominionist spy networks, known as the UID (Umbral Intelligence Division).
Astrid was eventually made the grandmaster of the Order of The Shattered Fae after its original grandmaster went missing. The order specialized in manipulating knights’ sheaths along with their fae to great their own twisted "shattered fae" sometimes for the good or worst of the fae involved. It was at this same time that a large enough movement within the populous, expressed a public desire for Astrid to become their sole ruler, and thus she adopted the moniker “The Queen of the Free Dominion” While the other dominionist sub-factions focused on outright combating the Sihian court, The Gilded Knife provided necessary services throughout Beacon Space, taking on contracts and being the face of the Dominion to the rest of the sector, accepting quests and consisting of more charismatic individuals than usual. They would take on quests, much the same as the bulk of the Starlit Court, providing confusion about if the organization was really a terrorist organization or a benefit.
The Sethdragon family has existed for longer than anyone can actually remember, though according to ancient family archives, the bloodline is believed to predate even Elentar colonization.
