Asteria Inferior is a continent located entirely in the Southern and Eastern Hemispheres of Kylaris. The vast continent is bounded by the bustling Vehemens Ocean to the west, the Arucian Gulfs to the northwest and northeast which narrowly separate it from its closest neighbour, Asteria Superior, and the extensive Lumine Ocean to the east and south.


Etymology

Alongside Asteria Superior, the continental name Asteria is derived from the name of Hashim ibn Ashtar, a Badawiyan explorer in the service of the Crown of Caldia, who is lauded with having first chartered the Asterias, opening the continents up to Euclean colonisation. His Solarianised name of Assim Asteris therefore gave rise to the name Asteria.

Hennish navigator Johannes van Twiller, who sailed along the Southern Vehemens and the Arucian Sea in the 1510s, was the first to determine that Asteria was made up of not one, but two continents. Though this conjecture would not be conclusively accepted until decades later, he would christen the southern continent with the Solarian suffix Inferior, correctly intuiting its smaller landmass.
