"DRAIN," "GRANDIOSE." Astrid Dietrich in her last moments of life, being absorbed by Augustus Molinnaire's sword: the Luxumbran Abbadon.
Astrid was born a low-class citizen, just like Molinnaire. Both grew up together and founded their own mercenary band: the Devils Overhead. This band was comprised of similarly low-born crooks and adventurers.
Their biggest exploit was the retrieval of the Abbadon, as it was stolen by Regalian soldiers, sealed into a stone slab where Augustus Molinnaire demonstrated his full strength, able to wield and swing said slab with relative ease.
Astrid and Molinnaire were the first low-born citizens allowed into Lucifer's personal elite, whereupon their fate would be decided. Astrid and Augustus were both prime choices for the position of the Lord of Luxumbra, except for one detail.
Astrid, was a girl.
Lucifer's power wasn't compatible with Astrid's body, so Augustus was chosen instead. Understandanly angered, Astrid lashed out at Augustus, eventually ending in a fight that took Astrid's life... and her soul, preventing peaceful slumber, instead destined to become Molinnaire's eternal soldier. When Astrid became a demon, she was just the same as when she was a human, except her eyes glowed a dull blue, and her presence emanated a cold air. Astrid felt nothing upon death, and so her demonic form is a cold, unfeeling husk of emptiness.
