“Now then, let’s begin. It won’t be scary, I’ll let you taste the greatest pleasure…”
“The second of the three Lilith Sisters. She’s proud and somewhat haughty, but her power is a match for her elder sister, Lilith. Her physical abilities are also high, and it is said she prefers to hold down struggling men with brute force to milk their semen.
Those caught by Astaroth are methodically sucked dry while she torments them, and she takes her time preying on them.
In the case that they do not strike her fancy, however, she has also been known to reduce a man to a dried out husk in a single to go. In that case, he will perish in a short time while tasting the highest pleasure.”
Astaroth is the second eldest of the three Lilith Sisters. She is arguably the most hot-headed and kind of the group. She is first mentioned by one of the Harpies in Harpy Village.
After Luka cures the majority of the harpies of the virus by using the Fruit of the World Tree, the harpy mentions that a trio of succubi appeared in the Harpy Village a few months earlier and then the virus began to spread mere days later, but Astaroth explains to the Queen Harpy that they had been studying the nearby Tartarus pit and had come to Harpy Village to ask the Queen Harpy if there had been any unusual activity. When the Queen says no, Morrigan gets annoyed and starts threatening the Queen, but Lilith tells her to shut up. Astaroth asks once more if there had been any unusual activity, to which the Queen truthfully answers no. Astaroth seems relieved by this and is surprised that killing one person could have generated so many ripples.
Astaroth is responsible for turning Kraken into a dried squid and tricked Meia to become the new Queen of the Southern Seas. It is latter revealed that she also used the opportunity to shatter the Blue Orb that the monster was keeping.
She and her sisters managed to awaken the monster blood of Sara, turning her into a succubus. With the King missing, the Sabasa Kingdom is in turmoil since Sara does not care about anything else but her own desires because of her succubus blood awakening.
Half an hour before Luka arrives, the Lilith Sisters already got there and had started to kill off the entire villages inhabitants (After telling them why they had to do it, of course). Luka first meets Astaroth in Luddite Village, where Astaroth is draining one of the last two men in the village dry, while Lilith deals with the other one. After Lilith and Morrigan depart, Astaroth forces Luka to fight her. Once Luka weakens her enough, she acknowledges his possible usefulness and decides to let him live. If Meia is in the party she will commend her for being freed from the brainwashing.
She is later seen when leaving Gold Fort, where her and Morrigan attacks Alma Elma as the latter is considered a traitor by the Monster Lord. While they managed to take down the queen succubus, they apparently suffer heavy wounds as they were still resting in the monster lord's castle when Luka reached Grangold Castle.
When Lilith is met in the castle, she tells Luka's team that Astaroth had praise for their power.
She's seen again at the end of Part 2 as the team reaches the deepest point of Ilias Temple Ruins, where she assassinate this universe's Ilias with the help of her sisters. Right afterwards, the new seraph attack them, but they get interrupted by the transformation of Sonya into an apoptosis, and are forced to fight Adramelech by the seraph's side.
On Ilias's route, the sisters bail out once it appears that Adramelech is going to swallow the world in chaos.
On Alice's route, they remain around and assist to Nuruko tranforming herself into the Spirit of Chaos. Astaroth eventually ask Morrigan to join Luka's team, as her younger sister is wounded, and they need someone to keep an eye on Sonya as well as on the newfound spirit.
She reappears with her sisters during chapter 12 of "The Land of Night and the Heroes of the Seven Worlds". On the Ilias Route, they notice Myusca, Vinum and Nemea returning to a village to attack it. They engage in a fight until the three other succubi leave.
On the Alice Route, it happens when the party gets attacked by Mysteltainn, Ogretooth and Executioner in the Château des Romances. They engage the latter three in a fight until the three other succubi leave, allowing the party to continue uninterrupted.
“The middle sister of the three Lilith Sisters, who serve the legendary Great Whore of Babylon. She wields magical power that is beyond the compare of monsters in this world, but its nature is unknown. She is powerful enough to drain men into dried fish, but refrains from actively doing so for some reason.
Her intentions are unknown, and it is uncertain why she even appeared in this world. The only thing that is certain is that her presence is affecting the world from behind the scenes.”

Astaroth is more serious than her sister Morrigan, and overall a stronger boss than the freshly faced Sara. She deals even more damage with her pleasure skills, an auto-hit wind attack against which only wind resistance work, and magical eyes that will lead to your party piling up on Luka. She also has proper status resistance, with only slow and silence being effectinve against her. The latter can help reduce the damage, as it prevents her from using her two most dangerous skills.
On the offensive side, she's a succubus and you should be used to face them by now. Holy and earth attacks are the ways to go, and wind and pleasure are completely useless. Still, don't forego succubi yourself, as their good resistance to pleasure status effects make them reliable support and healers. And you will need a steadfast healing during this fight.
“Astaroth!? What’s that disgusting succubus from the era of the Great Monster War doing here… All of Astaroth’s wind element attacks are very strong so I’d suggest wearing wind resistant equipment on all your party members. Her full party seduce skill also poses a threat. However, silence has a high effective rate so you should seal it. Her physical and pleasure attacks are punishing, but you’ll just have to outlast them. Use support magic to weather the assault. As you’d expect, she’s strong against wind and weak against earth. If you have any good earth skills, put them to use. The abnormal status conditions that come with her pleasure attacks might give you trouble too. At any rate, adjust your party and hit her with everything you’ve got. Now go, oh brave Luka. Send that disgusting succubus from the past back to the grave.”
- Astaroth in demonology, is the Great Duke of Hell, in the first hierarchy with Beelzebub and Lucifer; he is part of the evil trinity. He is a male figure named after the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar.
