Tecmo's Deception: Invitation to Darkness


The name Astarte is a Latin name meaning the "Phoenician goddess of love".[1]


  • In Kagero: Deception II, if the player gives Millennia the name Astarte, she will start the game with extra Ark. This supports the implications that Millennia became Astarte between Kagero and the first Deception.
  • While Fiana was the first to be mentioned, Astarte is the first female to make her appearance in the Deception series.
