strong Gaulish warrior, best friend of Obelix
Asterix (French: Astérix) is a fictional character, the titular hero of the French comic book series The Adventures of Asterix. The series portrays him as a diminutive but fearless Gaulish warrior living in the time of Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars. Asterix was created in 1959 by writer René Goscinny and illustrator Albert Uderzo.
Astérix - In French, asterisque means asterisk (i.e. *) which is from the Greek aster for the word 'star'. Asterix is the star or protagonist of the series, therefore, very aptly named.
He is a very skilled warrior who fights well in hand-to-hand combat. Although he is skilled as a swordsman, his preference when fighting with the Roman Legion is hand to hand combat especially after he takes a swig of the magical potion provided by the vilaage's druid, Getafix, which provides him with superhuman strength.In addition, Asterix is a skilled strategist and tactician, and can think quickly on his feet.
