It has been proposed that this page be moved to Astra (weapon). Please move this page, or discuss this change on the talk page.

Reason: This, the lance, and the sword are a more convoluted case than the Swordslayer, and the Swordslayer got merged; odds are the Astra weapon case should follow suit. As this page is the oldest of the three, the other two pages should be merged into this one at the new target, and this page should assume the pre-merge history.

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.
