Astellarn is the first celestial dragon ever created and is the first boss in the second elite dungeon: the Dragonkin Laboratory.

According to the dragonkin research, Astellarn was a white dragon who was the prototype for the Dactyl Dragonkin Phalaks' project. Her name was given to her by Kerapac's son Vicendithas. She was subjected to abyssal magicks that resulted in her mind being warped and becoming so uncontrollable and aggressive that she would attack anyone on sight. One day, she teleported into another dimension and was deemed missing; Vicendithas planned to euthanise her when she returned, but that never happened as the lab was sealed when another creation went terribly wrong.



Astellarn drops onyx dust, unless the codex or journal is dropped, which replaces the dust.
