Asriel Dreemurr is the deceased son of King Asgore and Queen Toriel, who is repeatedly mentioned in backstory and by other characters you encounter in the Underground, eventually making his appearance during the game's true ending. Many years ago, not too long after monsters had been forced into the Underground by humanity, Asriel was the one who discovered Chara, the original Fallen Child, and took them back to his parents. The King and Queen took the child in, raising them as their own. Very soon, Chara became Asriel's closest and only friend. However, the prince soon noticed his adopted sibling's vehement hatred for humanity, and while he turned a blind eye to it at the time, he speculated that the child's reasons for running away from home in the first place were not exactly the most pleasant, clearly leaving a deep wound in their psyche that never healed.
Still, this did not dissuade Asriel from remaining incredibly close with Chara, as the child was really the only company he knew. Unfortunately for thje prince, this led him into becoming an unwilling part of Chara's plan. One day, the child shared an idea with Asriel; one that would allow monsters a well-deserved revenge against humans. The child would eat fresh buttercups and make themself deathly ill, allowing their soul to fuse with Asriel's and cross the barrier which keeps monsters in the Underground. Once they had left and told their parents they were going to bury Chara's body in their village, the newly empowered Asriel would kill six humans, collect six more souls, and destroy the barrier that had kept his people unjustly imprisoned.
Upon arriving in the village, people saw Asriel holding the child's body, and instantly assumed he must have killed them. Asriel was struck with blow after blow, each one with killing intent, making it all the more powerful against a monster such as himself. While Chara's influence urged Asriel to use his newfound power to destroy the entire village in an instant, Asriel resisted, overpowering what he now realized to be a violent, sinister intent, allowing him to return to the Underground, eventually collapsing in the garden and turning to dust which spread across the flowers. The King and Queen were distraught; they'd lost two children in a single night. The entire kingdom was devoid of hope. In his rage, King Asgore declared a war against the humans who had wronged his race, vowing to take the soul of any human who fell into the Underground until he had enough soul power to break the barrier for good. In reality, Asgore never wanted to hurt anyone, but the promise of freedom was the only thing which gave his people hope after such a tragedy.
Years later, during her research on the effects of Determination, Dr. Alphys decided to test what would happen if Determination was injected into an object without a soul. She decided to use something symbolic and meaningful; the buttercup which sprouted up where Asriel had died. Upon doing so, the Determination created a being with the will to live, but no ability to feel any emotion. This being, which retained Asriel's memories but had a conscious tainted by the Fallen Child's diabolic intentions, became something never seen before in the underground. Awakened suddenly in this new body, confused and alone, the reincarnated prince made every effort in an attempt to feel, but found them all to be in vain. Eventually discovering his ability to SAVE and LOAD, Flowey began to play with the world, eventually getting bored after living out nearly every possible outcome, be it giving everyone a happy end to their story or complete genocide, fearing no repercussions as they could always just restart the world and do things over again.
It wasn't until Frisk stumbled into the Underground that Flowey's interests reawakened, as this new child reminded him so much of the "friend" he held so dear. This can be seen when Flowey will refer to Frisk as Chara, projecting his former sibling onto this newcomer. It is not until the game's true ending that his true intentions and feelings are revealed. Upon absorbing six human souls along with the soul of every single monster in the Underground (barring Napstablook), Flowey once again takes for as Asriel, though he quickly alters his appearance to become more adult and imposing. Over the course of the fight with Frisk, the prince reveals that he's going to kill Frisk and reset the world all so Frisk will never leave. They don't care about shattering the barrier or committing mass genocide, they simply want Frisk to stay. While Frisk refuses to fight back, their Determination remains so strong that even Asriel, with his now complete control over all that exists, cannot break it. Eventually, Frisk reaches out to Asriel after rescuing the souls of their friends, bringing back Asriel's true self and pulling them into an understanding embrace and allowing him to shed the dark influence and loneliness which gripped him tightly for so long.
After reverting back to his true self, Asriel uses his power to shatter the barrier and free the monsters from their prison before returning all souls to their rightful owners. Asriel tells Frisk that, without a Soul, he's lost the control he had over his form and mind, and will soon revert back into Flowey. Before he leaves, he asks Frisk to not remember him as a manipulative monster who lacks control, but for who he truly is. If Frisk returns to the very beginning of the Ruins in the playable epilogue, they will find Asriel tending the the flowers in his short time before he changes back. Asriel will acknowledge that Chara was not really a great person, but he cared for them because they were all he had. He then states that Frisk, however, is a truly wonderful person, never killing a single monster yet having Determination so strong, they could fight back against him and save everyone. Asriel leaves Frisk with a bit of advice, stating that while there are a lot of people like Flowey in the world, you should always strive to be the best person you can be, to both yourself and others, before turning the advice Flowey gave Frisk at the very beginning on its head; "don't kill and try to not be killed".
