He was about 3 years old when the jaegers raided his village. He managed to escape the attack, running away barefooted and crying along the mountain path. As he ran, he was saved by a man he ran into. The man took him on a night train to Raquel, where Ash's new foster mother would take over custody. Since the tragedy, Ash has suffered from an ache in his left eye and constantly hears a voice telling him to "kill the worst one", symptoms later ascribed to the curse of the Great One.
Ash grew up as a delinquent youth. During the Erebonian Civil War, he formed a youth group known as Fafnir to fight off brigands that attacked Raquel, almost killing them but ultimately driving them off. Even the Bracer Guild and Imperial Army of Erebonia caught wind of his brave efforts. He rejected all their invitations, however, and decided to enroll at Thors Campus Leeves following the advice of someone who is familiar with his past. It is later revealed this was Lechter Arundel, who informed him that signing up for Thors II would prove to be a shortcut to learn about his own past. Ash followed his advice so he could verify everything first-hand.
