History

Backstory

Before she was born, Asha's parents made the dangerous crossing from The Northern Wastes. The journey took a toll on both of them and Asha was born shortly before they died. Tabitha took her in and raised her as her own.[8]

The Mark

Asha is not present during the heist, as she and Theo are out scouting job opportunities.[9]

Song of the Eastern Sands

Asha is picking the lock on the merchant's chest when she is nearly discovered[10].Beck covers for her, and she returns to her work.[11] Almost immediately after, Rook barges into the tent and asks her what's taking so long. Asha replies that she's having trouble because it's a Felis lock.[12] Realizing that Beck cannot distract the merchant forever,[13] Rook and Asha flee with the chest.[14][15]

Asha and the others return to the Abadis Tavern[16] where she is greeted by her mother and Theo. Rook informs them Asha had trouble with the lock, which her mother guesses was of Felis make.[17] Asha affirms this.[18] After Beck breaks open the chest, Asha gawks at the amount of money inside.[19] Asha toasts to the Sand Spiders with the others.[20]

When Theo mentions another job,[21] Asha eagerly asks for more information. Theo reveals it is that night at the Sunsgrovian Embassy.[22] Asha asks about the guards, and Theo claims the treasure room will not be protected,[23] yet admits that he only knows the guards will be occupied but not why, and that his information comes from the usual nameless source as always. Asha and the other Sand Spiders look at Theo suspiciously.[24] After Theo asks for their opinion, Asha expresses cautious optimism.[25]

After the moon rises, Beck, Asha and Rook scale a tree to enter the Sunsgrovian Embassy through a window.[26] Security is very light.[27] After sneaking past a pair of guards, they reach the treasury without incident, and Asha begins to pick the door lock.[28] Asha gets the lock opern and the Spiders slip inside the treasury. They are stunned at the wealth inside.[29]

The Sand Spiders collect the loot and stuff it into empty sacks. Beck addresses the other Spiders,[30] and reminds them that the job's only half over and that they still have to sneak past the guards with sacks full of coins. The other Spiders respond with confidence, and Beck opens the door[31] revealing the corpses of the two guards. After a horrified pause, Beck tells the others they need to leave now.[32] Asha asks what would happen to them if they are caught. Rook tells her that while thieves lose their hands, murderers lose their heads. Beck shoulders a bag and tells the others they are leaving.

As they start down the hallway, they hear screaming and pleading from a courtyard.[33] The Spiders see a pair of Canid assassins attacking more Sunsgrovians, ignoring their cries and questions.[34] Beck takes one assassin out by smashing her bag of coins over his head while Rook challenges the remaining assassin.[35] Rook is quickly overpowered[36] but Asha mimics Beck's move. The Canid blocks her swing and pulls Asha off balance, but before he can hurt her, Rook kicks the Canid in the knee, stopping the attack.[37] The assassin flees, and Beck asks him where he's going. Asha follows him out the window [38] and chases him across several rooftops.[39] The Canid draws a knife to throw at Asha, but she leaps onto him and headbutts him.[40] Her attack knocks the Canid out, and after the initial moment of pride at her victory, Asha nurses her forehead.[41] She leaves the assassin for the authorities.[42]

Back at the Abadis Tavern, her head bandaged, Asha asks why Ambassador Rowan turned to the Sand Spiders for help.[43] prompting Beck to admit that Rowan thought she worked for the Embassy.[44] When the Spiders realize they were supposed to take the fall for the Embassy murders, Tabitha reminds the Spiders she always tells them to avoid politics. Asha asks her mother if she really thinks this is a political incident[45] Theo tells her all assassinations are political, and reminds the Spiders that they need to hurry north to get to Janik. Asha is barred from going by her mother.[46] Crestfallen, she is comforted by Theo, who tells her he's going to get her the new lockpicks and that she'll have plenty to do in Nessa.[47]
