Astra is an idealist and a dreamer. She believes in the essential goodness of people, and that, working together, people can still make a better life even in the worst of times. That belief has kept her going after Warday, through the time after she spent just trying to survive, and then coping with the loss of her husband. A native of Aquaria, she was stranded on Aerilon when the Cylons attacked, with no knowledge this was not an isolated incident. While not hiding or struggling to survive, she helped care for the refugee children, and sketched and painted scenes from the aftermath of Warday, along with portrait sketches of many of the refugees. Her art has been an escape, and also a way to preserve the memory of what was lost.

Physical Features

Astra Koios appears to be a woman in her early to mid-twenties. Her skin is pale ivory, freckle-dusted. Small and delicate-looking, she is no more than five feet tall with slender hands and feet, and her features are elfin, her eyes large and verdant. Her hair is long and wavy, hanging down past her hips, honey-gold and silken, though often braided or pulled back to keep it out of the way. Though she is very thin, her belly is a bit rounded from recent pregnancy.

Astra is wearing a jumper-dress of faded brown with a berry-red smock on underneath it, and sturdy, dependable, nondescript brown shoes. Dress, smock, and shoes have all seen rather too much wear, and neither the dress nor the smock fit properly, being rather too large, mostly hanging on her thin frame.
