Asher is quite a solitary Retro. He prefers to stay to himself and hardly ever opens up to anyone else. He’s quiet and it’s virtually impossible to get a word out of him. Some even think that he can’t talk but, that isn’t the case. He was once a talkative creature but then his whole world was taken from him and that’s affected him greatly. Now, he just keeps to himself and hardly utters a word to anyone around him. Only those who have managed to get close to him can actually get him to talk and even then it’s a difficult ordeal.
Ash has the typical ‘cool guy’ vibe and it’s sent off quite frequently. Just in his posture and the way he looks is mysterious and alluring. He barely ever cracks a smile and he does the corner of the eye look pretty well. To most he’s a strange guy and someone that you want to know but, he’ll never let anyone get any closer than that. He sticks to himself and that’s just the way he likes it. Half the time he doesn’t even notice all the other people staring at him and watching him carefully. He just goes about his daily business, not even caring about anyone else around him.
Inside though, he’s a pretty caring guy – or bird. If anyone ever managed to get that close to him, this side would come out. However, that has never happened before and even he doubts that there is a nice side of him to be found. But, when it is discovered you may notice the fact that he’ll always be there to look out for you, and won’t hesitate to do something if you’re in trouble. In fact, if you manage to get even closer to his heart you’ll find out that he’s quite the charmer and knows just what to say. That and he can be quite the romantic. But first, you’ll have to find a way to dig way down deep and that, will take an incredibly long time.
Asher was born to a rather large size of birds. Being eagles, they were solitary and had no flock to fly with. His parents were harsh and taught each of the siblings at a young age. Each of the hatchlings showed great promise and Ash’s parents were proud of every one of them. But Ash could always tell something was off, simply by the way his elder brother, Kreah, was acting. He also tried to prove that he was even better than their parents and often spoke to the other chicks about how one day he would be better than their parents and would take over. He spoke about breaking all the rules and hunting whenever he wanted to, not caring about whether he was hungry but simply killing because he could. Asher did not like the sound of that but still, he did not want to anger his brother.
A year went by and the young eagles continued their learning but soon they knew it would be time to leave the nest. However, Kreah wasn’t leaving without doing something big. One night, the other three went out to hunt and Kreah was left alone with their parents. When Ash and the others got back, their parents were nowhere to be found but, he could sense the blood around him. The air of an attack was all around the nest and a struggle was clear. However, he did not question his brother but instead let it pass and let his two other siblings question him. And they did. And Carma and Crypt payed the heavy price of it for when Ash came back from hunting the next night, they too were gone.
This time however, he flipped out. His brother kept telling him that they could be kings if they worked together but he wouldn’t hear of it. He couldn’t bear the thought of working with his brother who had murdered all his other siblings and parents. But Kreah knew something that Asher was yet to discover. That night, Asher left the nest alone and this time he wasn’t coming back. But unbeknown to him, Kreah wasn’t too far behind and he was already hatching a plan. His brother knew what would happen when Ash got too angry and he would be ready to strike when that time came.
Angered and alone Asher landed and cried out to the heavens. And then, he shifted. Stumbling around in the dark he wondered what had happened to him. He wasn’t himself, he was human. He still had too legs but his wings were gone. Where were his wings? Instead he had these two weird things on either side of him with soft claws. He had no feathers but instead a weird rubbery substance covered his body. And that’s when his brother appeared. Kreah explained everything, what he was, what was happening to him and how to control it. In the dead of night, brother taught brother and all sense of hatred left.
And yet the next day they came. Asher was shoved into a cage and forced to shift back into his true form. His brother was nowhere to be found. And then, he was at the Menagerie. Upon his arrival, Asher found himself faced with a choice: where to go next. He flew around for a number of days, not really knowing his purpose. During that time he saw a number of birds travelling to and from a nearby mountain range. Heading in their direction, Asher was met with other retromorphs like himself, who offered him a safe haven. Joining Lawaii as one of their Kondukteurs, Asher immediately fell into place within the flock.
However, he had only been with them for a week when he was once again snatched away. Still unaware of the capabilities of human traps, Asher found himself ensnared in one. Taken back to the labs, the eagle was poked and prodded and found himself presented with a whole new world of pain. The Keepers then checked that he could still shift and was still alive, and sent him on his way. Asher was overcome with the interrupting voices of creatures all around him, with no way of shutting them out. Hiding away in a cave in the mountains, Asher tried to work out how to control this new found power. After another bird stumbled upon him, Asher was given the information he greatly needed. He was told his power was telepathy and that it could be controlled. So Asher kept working on it, and he still works on it whenever he can. Whilst remaining a part of the flock, Asher has also remained a solitary creature, still hiding away in his cave. Coming out every now and then, Asher has the chance to meet others, before drawing back into the shadows once more, a necessary part of his lifestyle. Only the future can tell what will befall the young retro as he struggles with his strange powers.
