Hastra was a one of the former guards of Kell Maresh.

Physical descriptionEdit


Hastra was a very caring and dedicated person, especially when it came to protecting Kell Maresh. He is also rather stubborn as he pursued his own wish to become a royal guard even though his parents wanted him to work at the London Sanctuary.


After the events of the Black Night, Hastra became one of Kell's personal guards alongside Staff.


Kell MareshEdit

Skills and abilitiesEdit

  • Magic: Hastra possessed elementary balance which made him ideal for the position of a priest at the London Sanctuary.


  • An egg: Hastra found it on the way to the Ferase Stras and decided to care for it.


Magic gave so much to Man, and Man so much to Magic, that their edges blurred, and their threads all tangled, and now they can't be pulled apart. They're bound together, you see, life to life. Halves of a whole. If anyone tried to part them, they'd both unravel.
