Asker was born the oldest son to a pair of Muggles, who already had their fair share of trouble before he was born. His Mother had been diagnosed with Schizophrenia in her teenage years, it often manifested as visual and auditory hallucinations glazed with a healthy dose of paranoia. His Father, though originally a hard working and loyal man who loved his wife, was starting to feel the effects of a pretty young mentally ill wife. The birth of Ash caused even more stress for the man, especially as he grew. He walked, talked and generally became more independent earlier than most of his peers and it was around this time that strange things would happen in the house.
Small things such as Ash wanting something, being told no and having it placed out of his reach only for a few minutes later for it to be in his hands. Neither parent knew what was going and eventually it lead to arguments that would keep young Ash awake through the night. When he reached the age of eleven he got his letter for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A representative of the School came and explained everything to his parents and that September he was off into the Magical World.
The Sorting Hat placed him in Ravenclaw, the house of those with wit and intelligence. It wasn’t the house that Ash had envisioned him in. After all, he wasn’t a scholar. He was a scrawny, scrappy little boy. It took the first two years of school before he really found himself fitting into the Ravenclaw ideal of wit and intelligence, though; his nature of getting into fights never really abandoned him.
School was a happy time, though, as his home life wasn’t getting easier. His parents had two more children after he started school. A girl and a boy, the pair was born less than twelve months apart. The arrival of two younger children and the oldest being something his Parents couldn’t really understand caused Ash to become distant from them, spending most of the Holidays at Hogwarts and when home for the Summer Holidays hanging around with his Muggle friends.
It was during his last two years at school that he started to fall off the path that his Teachers expected of him. Though he retained good grades and had always been somewhat of a trouble maker, he started getting into more illegal things. It started with flinching potions and selling them to other students.
After graduating, Ash fell straight into the life of a criminal. It started out as small time things. Moving stolen objects, conning rich muggles and magical people alike out of their money and valuable objects. It eventually led to him specialising in procuring objects of magical significance – usually objects associated with the dark arts – for clients.
As he hit thirty he’d gain a reputation as a Wizard that could get you almost anything you wanted for the right price. When he branched out into Europe was when he met the woman, who would become is literal partner-in-crime. Though they often pretended otherwise on business, the pairs’ relationship was entirely plutonic, more familial. Ash referring to her as his sister.
The pairs reign over Europe as some of the most wanted criminals came to an abrupt end when they were caught by the International Wizarding Police.
Ashkar was given an ultimatum, work for the IWP or face trial and spend the rest of his natural life within the walls of Azkaban. Naturally he choose the option that allowed him to be a somewhat free man.
From that moment on him and his partner in crime, turned partner in IWP were sent on some of the more dangerous missions. That was up until the day she disappeared. His first knowledge of her disappearance was when her twin sister was brought in to replace her for a particular job.
It didn’t take him long to figure out the switch.
At least a year has passed since then and now he is partnered with the twin sister, Elektra, living with her and her sisters two children as they start their new assignment in Australia, posing undercover at the School Tallygarunga.
