Asher had always been a rebellious youth – brawling in taverns, sleeping with whores, and finding ways to raise his father’s ire. But his life took a dark turn when, at age seventeen, he fell in love with Gwyn Whitehill, the eldest daughter of his father’s bitter rival. Bloodshed ensued and Lord Forrester faced a grim choice: go to war, or exile Asher across the Narrow Sea. He chose the latter. Asher remains in Essos to this day, living as a sellsword, trying not to think about the life he left.

Character biography ( villainous choices)

Asher Forrester is many characters within the game describe mentally unstable man with a thirst for fighting and killing. Asher solves his problems with fighting over talking or trying to find an understanding he is also quick to react to violence when he notices someone he cares for he being abused as he beat a bully nearly to death that use to torment his Younger brother Ethan Forrester, under normal circumstances this would be considered a heroic act since he was defending his brother but the bully that Asher injured was merely a child who was about the age of eight to ten years old.

Even though Asher is a violent fighter, Asher has a scene of humour. Asher enjoys irritating his enemy's during battle by trash talking them or humiliating them during the fight, but this can be strategy during battle so the other warrior becomes frustrated losses the ability to think clearly.
