By the time she noticed, it was already too late. The opposing army, controlled from afar by the conjurer Amada, poured into the Undersea Kingdom. The beautiful mermaid kingdom instantly transformed into a brutal hell-scape wrapped in swirling blood. Even amidst this chaos, Asta did not give up hope. She continued to believe what the witch had said, and wielded her now extensive magical powers against her own people.
Asta is a Finnish, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian feminine name of Old Norse origin, modern variant of name Ásta, a medieval diminutive of Ástríðr (hence Astrid) "divinely beautiful". Derived from the Old Norse elements áss "god" and fríðr "beautiful, beloved". Also in Estonian a short form of Astrid, Anastasia and Augusta.
