Astrid is a Nord assassin, wife of Arnbjorn, and leader of the last remaining Dark Brotherhood sanctuary in Tamriel. She once visited Vvardenfell and did a contract for House Redoran. Astrid has grown accustomed to her position claiming they have managed to survive by abandoning the old ways of the Brotherhood when they had a ‘Listener’, Night Mother, and the five tenets. She is quick to remind everyone that she is the leader and that her word is law.
Likewise Astrid becomes suspicious and distrusting of Cicero, the Night Mother’s ‘Keeper’. She is attacked by Cicero after he over hears her speaking ill of the Night Mother and would have been killed by him if not for Veezara taking a hit.
