Ashavari had a nomadic upbringing in the care of a man she now suspects to be Atharim, but at the time believed to be her uncle. Most of her childhood and early adolescence was spent travelling DIII, struggling to cope with and understand her empathic abilities. During this time she began to write of her experiences and travels, publishing them on a blog. Much of her writings centred on the supernatural.
At eighteen Asha found herself alone in the world for the first time in her life. She chose to journey to Moscow because it is touted as the epicentre of the supernatural world, and ended up stranded there when her car and all her belongings were stolen.
Luck placed in the path of Nox Durante, who arranged for her to stay with Aria Piccolo — a fellow Sentient who was finally able to explain her abilities. She currently lives in Aria’s studio apartment, however spends much of her time with Elias Donovan, recently travelling with him to Siberia.
Touch strengthens Asha’s sentient perceptions, and she often uses this as an anchor — since it’s far easier to focus on one single person’s emotions out of a sea of them. In particular she relies on Elias, and will often reach for his hand. Recently it seems she also has the ability to influence others’ emotions, something she did unknowingly to ease Elias’s frustration and anger in Poseidon’s Fury. Since neither of them noticed the anomaly at the time, Asha remains unaware of this possibility.
