“It's all thanks to my adopted father, Lord Lonato, that a commoner like me got to enroll in the Officers Academy. He's strict but also kind, and a model knight... I want to grow up and become someone like him.”
Ashe was born as the son of restaurateurs in the Gaspard region. He lived a mostly honest childhood with his younger brother and sister, but his parents were not making ends meet. Desperate to help, Ashe would work too, but still it was not enough. He turned to thievery, an act he deeply regrets. His final act was when he broke into a mansion at age 10. Inside, he found a book called Loog and the Maiden of the Wind. Enamored by the gallant looking knight on the front cover, he coveted it despite the fact he could not read. He was promptly discovered by the mansions owner, but rather than have Ashe arrested, the noble opted to give him the book and even teach him how to read. Having heard of his family situation, the noble, Lonato adopted Ashe and his two siblings, giving them a chance at a better life, an act that Ashe was forever grateful to have received.
Three years later, his adopted brother Christophe was executed by the Knights of Seiros. He holds great respect and gratitude towards Lord Lonato, who took him in, raised him as his own, and sent him to the Officers Academy despite him being a commoner. He is a serious young boy, who studies and trains hard so he can become an outstanding adult like his benefactor.
