Astralus are from the Astral Plane, they followed their cousins, the Atlanteans to Aquatica. When they found out what the Atlanteans were doing they tried to stop them. The resulting conflict brought about the Chaos Wars.
Their society is similar to that of Tibet or Vulcan from Star Trek. They revere learning above all and in giving back to others. Their society is a meritocracy.
