Name: Ashter Reyens
Height: 5’ 6”
Personality: Ashter is a pretty funny girl, always wanting to cheer people up by making them laugh and smile. However, she does have moments of weakness, especially with the recent events that have happened in her life. She’s always trying to enjoy the “little things” of life, taking each moment of life as a precious thing to be treasured, and she’ll defend anything close to her heart to her last breath. Ashter may seem weak, but don’t let her fool you. Her experience in the military has strengthened her tactical side, and her photographic memory is always a plus!
Biography: (in Game and real life): Ashter is serving in the Air Force to pay off her college debts, and she's been stationed in Japan for a few months until she's shipped back to the USA. One of her friends she met from an old MMO she played lives there, and she met up with him, had dinner, and they talked about video games. This is where she first hears about Sword Art Online, but she gets a bad feeling about it and advises her friend Kenji not to play it. He convinces her to play, even with her bad feelings, so she levels with Kenji and his little sister Naoto. Eventually, Kenji went on to help in the front lines, so Ashter stays back in the small house they’re living in to take care of Naoto and await Kenji’s return. She’s a pretty good cook, though she isn’t rusty when it comes to battling.
Kenji was a beta tester, which meant he had an upper edge to how the game worked. He worked his hardest to help his fellow companions, but it’s rumored that somebody commissioned the Laughin’ Coffins to take him out, due to all of the information he was giving out. Weakened and dying from a poisonous wound, Kenji quickly wrote a letter to Ashter, confessing his feelings for her and asking her to look after Naoto. Along with this letter came an assortment of his gear, but Ashter is still wary of using them.
Ashter must seek out her late lover’s sister, who has joined a local guild and is journeying to the front lines. God knows what’ll happen if someone puts a hit out on the last living memory of Kenji…
Inventory: Simple leather armor, one sword, one shield, and a pouch filled with various items. She carries Kenji’s unopened “gift” as well.
