× The Kingdom of Asteria takes up the largest of the sky lands in the eastern part of Chalcedonia. The oldest kingdom of the Sixth Era, its land was once the Kingdom of Triskel in the Second Area and comprises of the Auster Lands, the Chalcedon, and the Chalcedonian Jungle. Asteria is the most powerful of the three kingdoms though lately it relys more and more on trade for metals. It is also the most diverse of the kindgoms.

The capital of Asteria is Aureas, a city of the Second Era completely rebuilt and restored by Taal Zodo as his gift to his nephew Ian Mercleis. The current king, and only king in its long history, is none other than Ian Mercleis. Asteria has been regarded as the Holy Kingdom due to its king's close relationship to the divine Taal Zodo.

It was just another day in the kingdom of Asteria, in the capital of Aureas.   At first White Ravens only quest was to serve her king by patrolling the streets to be sure all was calm among the people.  It seemed as such for a while until she had detected some troublesome thugs who spoke illy of the King of Asteria. Nothing went past her ears as she first tried to reason with the thugs but after being struck quite forcefully, causing her right eye to bleed, she couldn’t back down and faught back in honor of her King.  

” Well, Sterling, at least we protected our Lords name and integrity .  No matter how much it hurts.”

She mounts her friends back and gives a quiet sigh .  She was badly injured but she did not want to whimper about it.  It was not of her way.  She suffers quietly, but Sterling knew better.  He wasn’t about to let White Raven go anywhere without having her wounds tended to.  But where to go?  And who to go to?  It only takes the dragon a few moments to ponder that question and then he  looks back to his friend as she holds on as best she can.

”Yes, That’s right, you know where we must go, good friend.”

Sterling takes to the skies and flies back to the palace of the Asterian King. Yet White Raven felt that she had not fully kept her word of honor because of her return with so many wounds.  But in all truths she showed courage beyond the call of duty as a royal guard when she attempted to bring order to what could have been a chaotic incident.  Sterling knew she was brave even though White Raven didn’t believe in herself at the moment.

They arrive at the castle grounds where the wounded are brought, as Sterling gives a chuff to let someone know they’ve arrived and crouches low to the ground to gently allow his good friend off his back.  She stumbles off but manages to keep to her feet for a moment before collapsing to her knees then to her side.  Blood loss was now a concern to her dragon friend as he lays by her side until Someone came to help her. 

“ What am I going to tell Lord Ian?  I promised not to fail him and look where I am now.  I might as well be demoted to court jester for my failure to serve as a royal guardian. ”  She told Sterling  as he looks  down to her.
