Strengths: In terms of in-ring style, Astrid is your typical powerhouse. She hits hard, and in particular she can deliver some crushing submission holds if she gets the chance to. Her strength also gives her commendable endurance, and she can last a good long while in a hold from even the strongest of opponents. Finally, Astrid's commitment to wrestling makes her dedicated to putting up the best fight she can, and she wouldn't dare hold back or put forth anything less than her best effort. As such, she refuses to tap unless it's truly her last resort, particularly if she's up against a foe who she respects.
Weaknesses: Despite her strength and power, Astrid isn't exactly the most agile of wrestlers, and a smaller, quicker opponent could easily outmaneuver her before she even got a chance to land her attacks, even if those attacks could crush them. She doesn't have much in the way of high-flying moves, preferring to wrestle on her feet or on the mat if it comes to that. Additionally, while she's well-trained in her style, she isn't exactly the brightest when it comes to more complicated, cerebral maneuvers, and especially if she doesn't know what to expect from her opponent, they can end up confusing her.

Personality: There's nothing in the world Astrid enjoys more than wrestling. For some wrestlers, it's about wrestling, gaining fame, or making money, but for Astrid, it's about having fun, and testing your skills against opponents that can put up a good fight against your own. She's quite laid-back in her personal life, not taking a lot of things seriously and knowing how to enjoy herself, and it isn't uncommon for her to offer to be friends with her opponents after a particularly good match. She is proud of her strength, and she likes it best when she can have it tested in a truly well-matched bout in which both combatants are giving their all, so that she can see who it really comes down to in the end. As such, she doesn't get along as well with jobbers, who she often feels are a waste of her time if they aren't even going to try to beat her, or even an insult to her if the bookers thought that she needed the help in looking good. Because of her good-natured personality, Astrid can come across as what some might call naieve. She has a code of honor and always plays by the rules, feeling that she doesn't need to cheat to get ahead. As such, she doesn't have much respect for more unscrupulous heels, but on the other hand, it isn't hard to catch her off-guard when she always expects the best of her opponent and presumes them to play by the rules, particularly if it's a new opponent she doesn't know better from.
History: Astrid comes from a long-storied wrestling family that achieved some fame in their days, with her father and uncle having a respectable career worldwide. As a girl, Astrid was largely raised by her mother, as her father was away on tour and he didn't want to risk anything happening to her by raising her amidst the often chaotic world of pro wrestling. However, Astrid followed her family's exploits with great devotion on TV, and she dreamed of following in his footsteps. The Ostberg family had never had a woman step into the ring before, but Astrid wouldn't let that hold her back. She looked up to how strong and tough her father was, and she wanted to be like him. When she brought this up to her family, her father encouraged her, proud of his daughter to pursue his legacy, but he refused to train her, knowing that he couldn't be trusted to face his own child on equal footing, and he knew that Astrid wouldn't learn anything against a trainer who would go easy on her. Undeterred, she sought out other trainers, and entered the profession. Her fame preceded her for sure, but she wanted to get ahead by her own merits, and luckily for her, she proved to be a force to be reckoned with from her own strength alone. She toured the indie circuits and minor feds, first in Norway, then in Scandinavia, then in Europe, and finally, making the jump to world-level promotions as she signed on to LAW, where she hoped to test her skills against even stronger and more prestigious opponents.
