Ash hailed from another land, Vana'diel was more of a vacation spot than anything...When he arrived with his associate Xixian, he then heard of the war with the shadow lord, and the beast men's numbers once again swelling to unholy sizes. Ash, the Emperor of his land, knew quite well what its like to have something...less than desireable...try and take over your home....and so took up arms in Vana'Diels defense, hoping to assist in driving back the forces of darkness before another total war broke out...
