Astrid (Dollshe Amanda Beauty)

Today I want to introduce Astrid. She's another one of the shieldmaidens in-training.
She's the classmate of Ylva and Co. and a rival of Helga. They both root for becoming Leif's girlfriend. (Jokes on them, he's gay)





As I think I already explained earlier, I'm going for a not quite in-universe version of the characters (in order to not make it so damn hard getting them clothes). So they are still their characters, but they're gonna be a mix of modern and fantasy.

So, Astrid is a 19-year-old woman, training to become a shieldmaiden, and she gets picked by their mentor to go abroad to Wadrea to help negotiate an alliance. The vikings and shieldmaidens have been in a long fight with the sirens that lives under the sea and they want them gone for good now.
Astrid is a skilled young woman, who knew exactly how to fight before joining the program because she grew up in a family of vikings and shieldmaidens.
She's a determined woman, who works hard for what she wants and speaks her opinion.

I have promised Maria that she could see her before I ship her off to Shin. Soon Astrid will have a new face-up and be even more how I imagine her.

  2. Got a good laugh about Leif being gay and having two lovely ladies after him - that is one fun twist!

    1. Yes, her previous owner did a nice job on the face-up, but I wanted something that felt 100% right for the character :D
