Ascher Stormbringer was the brother of Saul Stormbringer, Shiloh Dawnbringer and Gideon Stormbringer, Father to Orvar Stormbringer, Bel Tlugv, Shore Stormbringer, Ode Stormbringer and Taufir Stormbringer, and former mate of Aspen. He was once highly ranked in Vinatta but left twice, first to find his brother Saul and then to help his daughter Bel find her Mother, Sequoia Tlugv.

After Bel Tlugv's death in late 2015, Ascher resurfaced, joining Sapient for a short spell before returning to Vinatta. Following Vinatta's disbandment in June 2017, Ascher decided to join Krokar - and after Krokar disbanded in the Autumn of 2018, Ascher went South with lover Tarina Skadi and son Taufir Stormbringer to join what remained of his family in Cour des Miracles.

Following an attack in March 2019 - part of the catalyst for the disbandment of the Court - Ascher suffered a traumatic brain injury which led to an aneurysm. He managed to propose mateship to Tarina but moments later the aneurysm ruptured, ending his life.


Ascher was named Best Shoulder To Cry On in the 2014 Yearbook Superlatives!

Ascher: March 2018 by Rat

2.  Personality

Ascher has survived love and loss and those losses have taken their toll on his once idealistic personality. While he's far from a gloomy cynic, the male is more cautious now about making connections with those he hasn't already put his trust in. He would still prefer using words to weapons but he understands now that fighting for things is a part of life - even if most of the things and people he would've once fought for are gone, in one way or another. As of 2018, the Stormbringer still has a guilty conscience over the past; he remains in search of direction and redemption.

6.  'Souls History (up to 2013)

Born as the result of a taboo tryst between a Stormbringer and a Dawnrunner, given the conflict, Ascher's life wasn't always going to be a happy one. He loved his family, but the first family member to be lost to him was his mother, Abigail, when the pups were still very young. The perpetrator, Abigail's mother, left the pups on the mountainside and eventually they came across a relative who took them in.

But soon Dreyrugr tracked his illicit children down and demanded that they return to the Solbjorg with him. Eager to please the father he'd not had much of a chance to know, Ascher agreed to return, with Saul and Shiloh, while Gideon refused. However, during the journey, a wild storm ripped the family apart, with Saul and Ascher both getting lost.

In time, Ascher made it back to Dahlia de Mai and was reunited with his siblings. When the litter came of age, Saul gave Ascher a doe pendant which he still wears. It may have been his happiest time.

Not long thereafter, a snowstorm hit 'Souls and Ascher was blown away by the wind and ice. Although his life wasn't threatened, at times he was disoriented. A small owl took to following him, alike to a guardian angel if he hadn't been such a temperamental bird. It seemed the creature took a liking to Ascher, bringing him small rodents and other treasures, and they travelled together back to the Solbjorg.

Ascher didn't plan to stay long, but he ended up staying for several months, waylaid by his thirst for knowledge and experience. Eventually the desire to share the knowledge he was gaining with his siblings became dominant, and he and the tiny owl he had named Archimedes began to make their way back to 'Souls and the people who had been there since day one.

Having reunited with his family, Ascher settled into Vinatta after a few hiccups, and decided to pursue the path of Eljun.

6.1  2013-2015

Ascher had a few false starts romantically after settling into Vinatta; Palaydrian Soul, who once had to let him down easy, quickly became one of his closest friends. Ascher went through a period of confusion and yearning which led to a tryst with Sequoia Tlu'gv - and the birth of Bel Tlu'gv and Orvar Stormbringer. Sequoia left the newborns with their Father and Ascher begged Colibri Haki (who was pregnant at the time) to be their wetnurse. She agreed, and Bel and Orvar remained in Vinatta, meeting their birth Mother only once or twice in the following months before she disappeared again.

In early 2014 Ascher began to kindle a romance with a shy young woman named Aspen. He quickly discovered that he could relax around her, and eventually realised that he had fallen for her. The two became mates and in the Summer of 2014 Aspen gave birth to two daughters: Shore Stormbringer and Ode Stormbringer.

Shortly after the birth of his youngest daughters, Ascher's elder brother and leader Saul Stormbringer left the pack. Initially Ascher stayed, before disappearing for around six weeks during which he searched for Saul and - by a sick twist of fate - got caught up in a storm. The storm killed Ascher's most enduring companion, the owl Archimedes, and the scholar returned to Vinatta somewhat broken and full of regret.

For a while Ascher was withdrawn and distracted, but after meeting his many new nieces and nephews he redoubled his efforts to contribute to his family and Vinatta as a whole. He reached the rank of Aor Eljun in January 2015.

In Spring 2015, Ascher left Vinatta again, this time to help his daughter Bel Tlu'gv locate her Mother, Sequoia Tlu'gv. They failed to locate Sequoia and instead were attacked by a vicious group of loners. Ascher gained several wounds over his face and chest while Bel gained a wound that, despite Ascher's best efforts, became infected. Bel died shortly after from sepsis.

The loss of Bel and the belief that he could have prevented it caused Ascher to enter a fugue state, losing most memories of his past, including his former family and pack.

6.2  2016

Sylven Firebringer found Ascher hiding in an abandoned building near the Miramichi Watershed. Though Ascher had no memory of being Sylven's “Uncle”, he eventually agreed to return to Krokar with him. After recovering his memory in Krokar, Ascher joined Sapient for a short spell before rejoining Vinatta and attempting to mend his relationship with his surviving children.

6.3  2017

The Blackbourne Conflict shook Ascher's world and left him with a lot of guilt. He started rebuilding his relationships with his remaining children and pack nonetheless, but the disbandment of Vinátta later in the year was another blow. Asch made the move to Krokar where he has resided since.
