Early Life (2 BBY to 13 ABY)
Ashura Megos and his twin sister, Atalanta, were born to Alexandros and Cassiopeia. The twins were Force-sensitive, but their parents were not; fearing the Empire might want the twins for their potential, they kept moving around. The Megos family never stayed in one place for too long, and it remained like this for years until one fateful day. Their transport vessel malfunctioned and had to make an emergency landing on Tython. It seemed that a Dark Side Adept had caused the failure; he had sensed the twins’ Force signatures and laid a trap. The Megos family escaped into the Tython wilderness. At the same time, the other passengers died; they were tracked down and killed too. Only the twins were kept alive; however, while Atalanta fled, Ashura was left behind and fell into his parents’ murderer's hands. The Dark Side Adept took the boy and raised him on Tython; Ashura’s upbringing forced him to forget about his parents and sister. As far as he knew, Tython was his home. His childhood consisted of twisted games and harsh lessons training him in the Force core abilities. Ashura also learned how to read and write, to survive and hunt in the wilderness, and basic medical techniques to dress his wounds. A pattern emerged: the boy would spend time training in the necessary Force abilities, being taught basic lore regarding the Dark Side of the Force, then leave on his own for months on end as survival training. It was during his teenage years that his time on Tython was coming to an end. He learned about the organisation his master was attached to and was deemed ready for his indoctrination.
Brotherhood Indoctrination (13 ABY to 17 ABY)
As an initiate, Ashura spent the majority of his time at the Shadow Academy, an institution that takes Force-sensitive individuals as potential members and physically and mentally twists them into Dark Jedi, then with proper training and testing watches as the most ruthless of them sacrifice the weaker ones to further progress down the path of the Dark Side. Ashura thrived in this environment, and it seemed his upbringing had prepared him for life at the academy. In his second year, he learned the basics of lightsaber combat and more advanced Force techniques that heavily focused on the use of the Dark Side of the Force. He became fascinated with Old Republic military history. The tactics they used, the battles, the victories and defeats they suffered were all very educational to him. Ashura knew the only way to succeed in the academy was to grow stronger, even if that meant killing to get ahead, which often it did. It was only natural to form a temporary partnership with other initiates, which often helped against other such groups looking to get ahead. Ashura became quite talented in manipulating other students, and if that didn’t work, then he would use deception, intimidation and interrogation to achieve his goals. By the end of his time as an initiate, Ashura had become a cold and ruthless individual who saw those weaker than him as mere puppets to be used and discarded at will.
Sith Beginnings (17 ABY to 21 ABY)
Upon graduating from the Shadow Academy, Ashura joined his master's clan as an Apprentice. Here, he experienced life as a clan member and once more found himself under his master’s tutelage. It was here Ashura chose to follow the path of the Sith, as the thirst for power was all-consuming, and the knowledge he could learn from the Dark Side Adept seemed limitless. So he prostrated and subjected himself to his master’s twisted training, sinking deeper into the Sith doctrine to survive. Years passed by, and Ashura grew in talent and power, passing one odious trial after another, before meeting the requirements that saw his promotion to Dark Jedi Knight. Upon achieving his knighthood, Ashura found himself adopted into his master’s family as a type of reward; he even legally changed his name from Ashura Megos to Ashura Isradia. However, the newly christened knight did not want to remain in the same clan as his master; he desired to spread his wings and achieve his goals. He spent two years bouncing from one group to another, trying to find the right clan that would help him achieve his goals. Ashura’s thirst for power was so great it even got him into trouble; he crossed the wrong people and had to face the Chamber of Justice. Luckily, he was able to get off with a warning, but it did make the Sith more cautious from that point onwards. It was a year after his cross with the Justicar he met Ashia Keibatsu, who managed to sway him into joining her clan.
Disciple of Sadow (21 ABY to 34 ABY)
Upon joining Clan Naga Sadow, Ashura took up one of the vacant Envoy positions. It may not have been a seemingly important position of power, but it did allow the Sith to observe how the clan operated. The politics of the Sadow were split into two groups; the Disciples of Sadow and the Sons & Daughters of Sadow, who were loyal to the Heir of Naga Sadow, Astronicus Aurelius Sadow. Ashura continued his role as Envoy until eventually becoming Aedile and later Quaestor of Marka Ragnos. Naga Sadow appeared to be the perfect place to build up his power, and the Sith ensured he would find like-minded individuals within the clan: allies, comrades, but never any friends. Friends were a weakness. It was during this point that he started to fine-tune the process of making his “puppets,” weak-minded fools who broke to his torture, interrogation and intimidation methods. He became fascinated with “reprogramming” these broken husks into obedient and expendable pawns using malicious, mind-altering Force techniques. It was during this time that he earned the nickname of “Puppet Master,” which would later change to “Puppet Master of Sadow.” Ashura’s greatest achievement was during his tenure as Proconsul. While he only held the position for a couple of years, his work and accomplishments were recognised by being granted the Son of Sadow title, and he was eventually promoted for it. When his time on the clan summit ended, Ashura turned to more personal interests; this included the taking of students. He finally agreed to take on an unaffiliated Dark Jedi from the Shadow Academy; who he got was Aleho Ruoxf, a spunky young Tortuga. Despite his best efforts, he became attached to the girl and she to him. The Collective would later exploit this connection to his apprentice by luring him into a trap and replacing him with an imposter. While under the Collective’s care, he was experimented and tested on to help find methods to fight against Force users. When not strapped down he would be facing off against Collective forces in a gladiatorial-style arena for them to hone their skills. He was eventually rescued a few years later by members of the Keibatsu family, who were assigned to investigate rumours about a shadow organisation.
Hiatus (34 ABY to 37 ABY)
Ashura immediately took Aleho to learn from the Matukai and Jensaarail to learn from them and help fine-tune her Force abilities and broaden her mind. After a year of this, he began her real training, subjecting her to painful and lethal methods, making Aleho draw out her rage and use the Dark Side of the Force as a weapon and tool for her advancements. He focused her martial prowess, lightsaber skills and advanced Force techniques. Ashura sent regular reports to the Shadow Academy regarding Aleho’s progress. While on the hiatus from Clan Naga Sadow, he missed the Collective’s invasion and takeover of the Orian system. It was during this period may things happened to the Brotherhood; it was the end of one era and the beginning of a new one. Ashura joined the newly established Inquisitorius as an Apprentice Inquisitor. His reprogrammed drones, also known as puppets, were to be used as undercover operators for the AIN. When he deemed Aleho ready for her knighthood trials, he lured his apprentice into a trap; he had arranged for a group of Jedi Knights to discover her. He watched from afar as Aleho fought off the Jedi, using all her skills she had been taught, and eventually slaughtered all of them. Much like his master had done for him, the moment Aleho’s knighthood went through, he adopted her, although she decided not to change her name legally. Some months later, he received word that Clan Naga Sadow was planning to take back the Orian system.

Sadistic, cold and cruel would be a brief description of Ashura’s personality. The man was a sociopath that liked to see his victims suffer, either through torture, interrogation or murder. He enjoys twisting people into pawns to and using them for his plans. It made matters worse that he also had a high intelligence quotient; this made Ashura calculated and meticulous when it came to planning and details.
Ashura was an adult human with white hair and black eyes which become red when he taps into the Dark Side. Before going into any battle, he liked to apply Sith war paint to his face. The meaning of this was to intimidate and disconcert his opponents mentally. Lingering scars cover his body caused by his harsh training and from previous battles. Many of these were minor lightsaber wounds across his abdominal, vertebral and scapular during combat. The other scars one his arms and body were results of shrapnel during battle zones.

- The name "Ashura" belongs to an older version of Ash Ketchum from Pokemon MASTER, a dark Pokémon fanfiction by Ace Sanchez, which is a damn good read. This is where the name was first picked up the name for this character.
