About Neoastran Neoastran (Or astraki, meaning "Belonging to the Stars") is the language of the Church in Borandra. It is a modern approximation of the language of the celestials and dragons of ancient times.

The design of astraki hasn't been fully set in stone as of right now, but I knew when I started out that I wanted to create speech without any labial sounds to reflect the fact that the ancient celestial beings (phoenixians) had beaks rather than lips. I also added in a dental click as part of the language to approximate a beak clicking.
