Countless lifetimes have found Asha in a reincarnated form and mind unlike any she’s ever experienced.
To begin with, she is small for a deva: at 5 and a half feet tall, she is a good head shorter than most of her kind. She knows this largely through instinct, having met only a handful of devas in her past travels, and her memories of those past meetings are fleeting at best. It is a small (no pun intended) oddity, and largely irrelevant, as most others she meets have met fewer devas than her, if any; yet, it remains a vulnerable point to her.
Second, never before has a previous life’s memories been so dominant, or vivid. So much so that she often confuses which incarnation she currently inhabits; Asha, avenger of Kord, or Galad, warlord hero of Fallcrest some one hundred years past. In fact, she has come to regard Galad as an invading personality to her current consciousness. Despite hundreds of years of calm, detached observation and meditation, Asha finds it difficult to maintain her self control when Galad’s memories surface. Strangely, she does not feel that the memories of her life as Galad are hers at all; they feel distinctly like his, as though Galad and Asha do not share the same soul.
Perhaps because of his influence, or her own sense of portent, Asha has chosen to follow Galad’s martial path, although with some differences. By immersing herself in a world that parallels a part of his history, she feels she may uncover the purpose towards which the peculiarities in her latest reincarnation may point her. She feels there is unfinished business in his past, whether for better or worse; otherwise, why would her, or rather his, memories be so distinct? Answering this question had become a driving force in her life.
