There are two different variations of Ash available to Heroes, both of which are tied to her storyline appearance in Heroes. The normal variation of Ash is a Mythic Hero, added to the cast of the game at the launch of Book VI, and is the first original character introduced in that book to be playable; she was made available for summoning as part of the summoning focus surrounding the Book VI update, and became available for summoning by players on December 7, 2021, and a 5★ Ash can also be obtained by clearing Chapter 1 of Book VI (released the same day). A New Year's-themed variation of Ash was made available between the period of January 1, 2023 through February 1, 2023 as part of the summoning event surrounding the Gods Renewed update.

Personality

Ash takes time to word each of her statements to the best of her ability, almost as if afraid to be misunderstood.[1] She seems to be nervous much of the time, as evidenced earlier by taking care to enunciate herself properly and by her first few statements after arriving in Midgard.[2] Despite her nervousness, it does not stop her from continuing her mission, promising to aid the mortals of Zenith however she can.[3] She does not tolerate impoliteness whether it comes from her or someone else, further explaining her wordiness and behavior toward others.[4] Considering her anxiety, she seems not to struggle with conviction at all, as proven with her straightforward statement of needing to stop Embla. Overall, Ash comes across as an amicable person, exemplified by Sharena's statement in Meet the Heroes.[5]

An unknown force wiped out a village on the border of Askr and Embla, and we went to investigate. Near the scene, we met a Hero we'd never heard of before—and that's who I'll be talking about today. Here's Ash! Ash told us she's a retainer to the god Askr, and she was sent to save us! By the way, have you heard of Askr? He's the legendary dragon who shared his power with us mortals! You'd think someone working for a legendary dragon would be a little more…stuffy, but Ash is surprisingly personable. She seems like someone who I could get along with! According to Ash, the dragon Embla has set a plan in motion to wipe out everyone who carries Askr's blood. Well, you can leave it to the Order of Heroes to make sure Embla's plans don't come to fruition!
