Ashe was once a youth rescued by the Arisen Grette and her pawn, Olra, following his village being annihlated by the dragon. Following them on their quest and earning a mother and mentor figure in Olra, Ashe was heartbroken when Olra and Grette failed to defeat the wyrm, resulting in the latter's death. He soon found a new love in Olra, the now-abandoned pawn. When a new dragon sensed the latent potential willpower within Ashe and took his own heart from him later, Ashe, determined to avenge Grette, set out to slay the dragon, only to discover that the new dragon was, in fact, Grette, who had to fulfill her duty to completing the Eternal Cycle by forcing Ashe to choose to either take up arms and slay her or to leave his new loved one behind to die as a tribute to the dragon, in which instance he would receive one wish as compensation. Enraged and further heartbroken, Ashe refused his own destiny, cursing the Eternal Cycle as a whole, leaving the dragon no choice but to slay Olga and grant him his wish; the form of Daimon, sealed away in the world of Bitterblack Isle.
Now bound to a monstrous form and gone mad with hatred and despair, the mysterious entity known as Daimon seeks to end the Eternal Cycle altogether. Having gorged itself on the negative emotions of Ashe and from the power of hundreds of unfortunate Arisen who have fallen prey to Bitterblack Isle, Daimon now only awaits an entity powerful enough to separate him from Ashe, allowing it to become an independent being...
