Ashur has been studying the legends of the Jedi for the better part of his life. He was fascinated with the fabrications that the Empire allowed to slip through the cracks following the purge of all official recognition of the Jedi Order, or even of the Jedi’s existence.
He believed that there was more to the tales, and his studies took him to many places, including Seoul, which incidentally was a place that had been settled by a band of fugitive Jedi and their families. He stayed there for some time, unaware of how close to the truth he was, and became friends with the village children who loved his stories.
Eventually he left to further his academic career, but Ashur returned some years later to find a a moderately successful smuggler named Vel Kur now living on the planet, offering protection from the Empire in return for food and goods from the village. The arrangement seemed amicable, and while he was there, Vel took ill and it was Ashur who saved his life. This earned the smuggler’s respect, if not friendship.
It was around this time he discovered that the young people he’d been around were Force-sensitive and he studied them voraciously, but due to the nature of his finding he kept his research secret lest the Empire come down on him.
For years he kept quiet, and it wasn’t until he found an artifact that could have been related to the Force that he contacted the young men Astrim and Kale to come find him and help him with the discovery.
This lead to an encounter with Eran Garai, breaking into the academy’s library on Eriadu, and fleeing with stolen property. Together they sought out Sanctuary, the destroyed and abandoned mobile home of the long dead Jedi, Val Isa.
Now he remains on the run with Archimedes, Astrim, and Kale, continuing his research a publishing it anomously to the holonet.
