She is a tall, blonde lady who works to help the plague stricken and disease affected inhabitants of the Valley of Defilement. When players find her, she is perched on a rock, blood, swamp water and plague staining her skirt and helpless. Her bodyguard, Garl Vinland, is her only form of offense and defense.
While the boss fight requires Maiden Astraea to be killed, she doesn't attack. Instead, you fight her loyal guardian, Garl Vinland. When entering, Garl will block the shortcut to Astraea, forcing you to either take a longer route (recommended) or wade through monster ridden, plague infested swamp land (almost certain death). When you fight Garl, he will be on a small island, which presents a problem as his weapon, Bramd, will deal dangerous amounts of damage and the tight space makes dodging it a problem. After Garl is dead, you can walk up and talk to Astraea, who proceeds to kill herself after a brief dialogue. Another way to end the fight is to snipe Astraea with arrows or spells, if you can out damage her healing, she will die, and Garl will be pacified (unless attacked). If using this method, you can get Garl's equipment by reloading the game.
If one attacks her, however, instead of talking to her, she will charge up and release a smaller, but still significant, God's Wrath which deals high damage and usually staggers or knocks the player down.
