Two can keep a secret if one's dead

1) Describe your character's backstory. Who are their parents? Did they grow up with Nobility, or were they of lower class? The character's backstory must be at least 2 paragraphs long.

Elves might not have as many prejudices as humans, but they still have a whole ton.

Lu Kwan grew up with several older brothers, who all outshined her. Her family was always praising them or giving them gifts, and more little Lu was overlooked. Her family was always a little more favorable to her brothers then her, and that truly hurt her. When her father told her she was instructed to marry a famous emissary, mainly for the social status, she absolutely lost it.

And I mean lost it. She kicked and screamed and cried and exploded chandeliers. Lu was furious and heartbroken at the same time. She did truly love her family, no matter how badly they treated her. And she saw this as a betrayal, of her trust and love.

Lu was smart, smarter then the average elf, and even her own brothers. She was resourceful, and knew that she would never, ever, marry some man her family had chosen for her.

So one night, she took her birth fund and a pathfinder, and left. Never to come back, ever again.

Lu moved to Mysterium, a place where no one would question her past. She started a small sporting goods store there, and this was the place she met the love of her life.

Hathor Rashidi was a kind young woman, one that anyone would trust instantly. When she met Lu Kwan at a Mysterium festival, sparks collided. The two quickly fell in love, and were getting married two months later.

Astra came into the picture during Hathor and Lu's wedding. They had decided to have it at Everblaze Stargazing Fields, and when they got there to set up decorations, they found a tiny little baby swaddled up in pale white sheets, sleeping peacefully in a basket.

Hathor and Lu were confused. Who would leave such a sweet baby lying in a field. They never found out the answer. When the emissary came to take the baby, he suddenly offered them guardianship. They simply looked at each other, and accepted. The wedding went on, with Astra sleeping away in the petal basket.

When they signed the official court documents to adopt her, they were instructed to choose a name. Lu and Hathor agreed on Astra, which was a nickname for the human goddess of stars. And what better name for a child of the stars?

Astra was raised in a way that was very female-empowering. Her moms always taught her that she could do anything any male, female, or nonbinary could do. It didn't matter that she had a weaker ability as a Flasher, she was still strong in her own way. When she wanted to try out bramble, her moms didn't even bat an eyelash. They simply signed her up and went with it.

It took a few tense meetings for Astra to be accepted into an all-male bramble team, but once she started, she couldn't stop. Because she was good. Better then most of her team, who had been playing for years. She was a natural.

Astra went on to play for a very long time. She still plays to this day, at nineteen. Astra graduated Foxfire a year early, and decided to take a year off before joining the Nobility. She currently can be found at a bramble field, the library, or at her favorite place, Everblaze Stargazing Fields.

2) What is your character's personality like? Are they respectable, or rude? The character's personality must be a paragraph long.

Astra is confident, funny, and always ready with a smile. She can be slightly rude without realizing it, but she's working on that. Her brazen confidence is often presented as 'arrogance', but she insists the two are different. She's very argumentative, and never wants to back down, even when her subconsciousness sis telling her she's wrong. She hates being told she has to 'act' a certain way, and treats everyone as an equal. Astra is attracted to both boys and girls, which her mothers both fully accept and understand.
