Keith Astoria, also known as Lightspeed Shula, is a character in Battle Spirits Shounen Gekiha Dan
Keith as a child has blond hair and wears blue clothes. As Shula, he wears a red mask with a horn on top, and a hole in the mask reveals his left eye (his right is covered by his hair). He has red armor, and black clothes.
Shula doesn't like X-rares or any rare cards for that matter. He can be very cold and unfeeling at times.
BiographyEditBack when they were children, Seiru and Keith were having a battle. Seiru was frustrated because she believes she can't win with weak cards. Keith disagrees, saying victory is not determined by rarity. He then gives his sister a card.
Brustom then took over the kingdom. He has a vast collection of x-rares, and believed that only those with rare cards are worthy duelists. Keith came to hate X-rares because they remind him of Brustom, the one who took over their land.
Upon hearing of a tournament, he entered, using the name Lightspeed Shula so Brustom won't recognize him easily. He has been bragging that he will defeat Brustom easily to everyone he meets. He was able to defeat Jin in the gunslinger, using a one-hit attack.His next match was against Clackey Ray . Clackey promised to bring the old Keith back and stop Shula from taking revenge against Brustom. Clackey succeeds by using a series of spells, and Keith realizes his errors.
He left the village, deciding to go on a journey, leaving a note and a card, the ArcAngelia Isfiel with Seiru.
Shula uses a red speed deck. These are the cards he has:
|The Acrobat Juggline||Red||Spirit|
|The BombSoldier Dragno||Red||Spirit|
|The FanDragon Sordes||Red||Spirit|
|18||Single Battle||Clackey Ray||Lose|
