Ash was born to a poor family in the now destroyed city of Tiersan.
When Ash was still a young child, his father became part of a revolutionary group whose goal was to over-throw the theocracy of the Church of the Glade. The small band of revolutionaries made themselves into a minor pain to the theocracy, who offered a sizable reward for the group’s capture.
It wasn’t long till one of Ash’s neighbors turned Ash’s father in for the purse. Ash was almost 4 when the men came and took his father to the block…his mother took her own life a short time later, leaving young Ash as a ward of the city.
Ash was given to the Stallid House, an orphanage that trained their young boys to become pit fighters, tearing each other apart for the amusement of the crowd. He lived there for 10 years before he experienced an almost lethal wound in the pits against another of the Stallid boys.
The Head-Master of the Stallid House thought that young Ash’s wound would leave him dead eventually, and cut him loose into the world. He was found, bleeding to death, by one of the Magi of the Rose Covenant, who nursed the young man back to health and placed him into the covenant’s turb.
Today, the 34 year old man is an experienced warrior with a hardened loyalty toward the mages that saved him so many years ago.
