Astra (Japanese: 流星 Shooting Star) is a regalia bow introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening. It is a strong weapon with a small crit bonus, and it has the unique function of temporarily granting the Astra skill to a unit who wields it, which allows them to deal five consecutive stikes against their opponent.
