"I know, just because I carry my struggles on my own, the weight on my chest of the past, and face it all alone doesn't mean you have to. I'll be here for you, remember that "- Ashur to (Some lover he'll probably romance later on)Master Assassin Ashur Cortez is a high ranking assassin within the Assassins Guild, where he is considered one of the most lethal magic users there, the 19 year old Heavenly Dragon slayer mage has killed many in his path and continues to do so.
AppearanceAshur is a young man who's most prominent features are his long spiky brown hair and the dragon tattoo on his left shoulder which he has had since he trained under a Renowned Dragon warrior: Surio. Being a slim and physically toned man, it is shown that many women and teenage girls tend to find Ashur's appearance attractive. He is usually wearing his long brown scarf, brown gauntlets made out of dragon leather, a dark brown collared sleeveless shirt, and brown boots also made out of dragon leather. However, on different occasions he wears different attire, as it varies. When sleeping, he is shirtless, only wearing a pair of brown trousers. When at war, or a fight that is more dangerous than a mission he would wear a dark silk coat tailored with the Assassins guild Insignia, under that would be steel plated armor, and dark pants, over that he would wear a black collared cloak. On a formal occasion however, Ashur would wear lighter colors. That would be consisting of an elegant white silk frock coat with a black collar, under that there is a black silk collarless button up long sleeved shirt, with that he wears black pants, and dress shoes. In that particular outfit, he would have a golden medallion around his neck of the Assassin's guild symbol under his frock coat. Usually, most people who meet him would describe him as a well dressed young man with a taste of fashion.
Ashur is usually a kind, mature and wise individual. He is a rather serious person. He also happens to be very un-perverted, as he is a virgin and has never touched a woman he tends to act awkward and shows embarrassment when he accidentally touches a woman. He is also a strong believer of free-will, and hates the idea of a predetermined fate. He also values freedom, so he will also try to free captured slaves. As an assassin, he is seen as a sympathetic man, who only kills after he whispers prayers. He's also friendly towards everyone he meets, but it is usually difficult to get him to truly 'Open up' to somebody, usually he is very picky on those specific people. He also has a dormant romance persona, one that usually only awakens if he has fallen in love. When that happens, Ashur becomes a gentleman, and is much more chivalrous as he develops a soft spot. However, achieving this is difficult for Ashur because of his past.Like Mikael, he also holds a personal grudge against any alcoholics and drug users, automatically losing respect for a person if they are one(But unlike Mikael, he will still be nice to them).
All he knew about his early life was that his father, Lord Alarico had led a large rebellion against the Fedorian empire that was almost successful, taking one/third of the cities and villages scattered about. When he was born, both Lord Alarico and Lady Cassandra were killed, and nobody knew the whereabouts of his sister, so he ended up being an abandoned newborn baby. His cries could be heard from the ruined castle, attracting the attention of a Dragon Tribal chief, who appeared to Ashur in a human form and took him in as his own son, teaching him everything he knew. Learning heavenly(wind) dragon slayer magic, he grew up in a desert of sand dunes. Eventually, he became an extremely strong warrior and a skilled magic user.
Teens and Adolescence
Unlike most dragon slayers, Ashur's dragon father happened to still be alive. The reason he left the dragon clan behind was that he wanted to find out who his family was, his human family and meet them again. When Ashur came back to the ruins he was pretty disappointed to realize that nobody else was alive. Rumor has it that the master assassins sister was there, who had escaped sexual slavery, gone crazy and tried to kill Ashur. Nobody truly knows what happened, but Ashur began to recruit a large group of rebels up to 300 men to march on the city. At the age of only 18, he and his followers massacred many soldiers at a fortress near Earnwold, only to be barely stopped by Mikael(Who was in dragon force mode at the time) and thus his rebellion ended. Ashur was on the run, until he found shelter within the assassins guild, where he swore an oath and officially became an assassin initiate. Some time between his teenage years and adolescence, he was about to fall in love with an older woman who was about the age of 22, but t didn't work out well and he was heartbroken.
Serving in many cities, Ashur rose to become a master assassin in only a year with his combat skills and prowess, along with his magical power, all of his targets fell to him with ease. He trained to develop stealth, teleportation techniques, and the many other assassin skills.
