Astrid is a Spirit Character in Spiritfarer. She is first encountered leading a strike at Bottom Line Corp..


Life[]

Astrid is an elderly woman who devoted her life to political causes. As a young woman during World War II, she hid Jewish children in the basement of her mother's restaurant.[1] She devoted the remainder of her life to helping others. Eventually, she met and married Giovanni. Though she deeply loved him, the two had a tumultuous relationship. Despite Giovanni regularly being unfaithful, she found it difficult to separate herself from him.

Stella met Astrid and her husband while she was a teenager living in France. The couple became surrogate grandparents to her, as Stella never knew her own.[1]

  • "Uses Foundry" works by visiting an island with Ore, then talking to Astrid while she is working in the Foundry. This provides Ingots.
  • "Fishes for you" works by talking to Astrid. This provides Fish (not sure if there is an animation of her on the fishing chair)

 Event[]

Astrid introduces Stella to the Turtle sisters, where Wood, Rocks, and Ores can be planted to grow trees or rocks of the planted type. Instead of talking to Astrid to start the event, Stella must go to the bow of her ship to greet the turtle blocking her ship's path. Astrid joins Stella in approaching the turtles after the initial introduction.

After Astrid leaves through the Everdoor, Stella will simply approach the Turtle sisters alone.

Dialogue[]

At The Everdoor[]

Potential spoilers ahead!
  • On the boat: "Stella... Ah, we've finally arrived. I feel so weak... Can we go now?" (player says yes) "Ok. Let's do this. I can't hold it any longer."
  • Stella rowing towards the Everdoor: "I don't think it's wise to live that long, Munchkin. Good thing I've never been that wise. But, boy, am I old. And being this old is disappointing. You just end up being ugly on the outside. And rotten on the inside. And it hurts so much! Life is suffering. It is hard! The world is cursed. But still, you find reasons to keep on living." ... "I don't regret a thing, you know. I don't regret the struggles. I don't regret the hardships. The pain. The sorrow. And I've seen so much of it! But still. I don't regret what I've done or how I've lived my life. I just wish the world had been a better place. A better place for them, for us... But surely, a better place for you, my dear." ... "I feel like a vast vessel, with so many dusty rooms and cabins... I have so many of them... So many memories... Some of them are gone, but some of them... Some of them will live on forever. In you, in others.
  • Just before the Everdoor: "I remember their faces as they trembled in fear... I remember their houses and the parties they threw... I remember their songs and their love... I remember their touch, their warmth... It's all fading away now, Munchkin... It's fading away...It's all gray, all white, all foggy..."
  • At the Everdoor: "Is it all gone already? I don't see much anymore... You're still here with me, aren't you? You're still here, Stella? Don't you forget about me, please. I don't care about anyone else! But you, you don't forget about me, I'm telling you! I'll come back and haunt you if you do! I can feel it coming. Goodbye, Stella. Just follow your heart and keep smiling."
