Ashley was born and raised on a Mann-CO weapon development facility, where he cultivated an intense love for incredibly sophisticated technology that's sole purpose is murder. It was there that he learned to fight anything that moves/doesn't move, eat nails and radiation for breakfast, and grow mustaches at will (possibly from the aforementioned radiation).

Though surrounded by the most advanced tech on earth, Ashley proved to be a complete luddite. His ineptitude with machinery transcended the realm of incompetence; he had a gift. Even today, Ashley is the equivalent of a human sapper.

Despite all this, he had a pretty sweet life at Mann-CO. Had a job as a product tester. If technology could survive Ashley for even five minutes, it was ready to ship. And he was generally liked by the other Mann-CO employees, who deemed him appropriately manly, and found his luddite idiocy charming.

Until he broke respawn.

Then he joined Blu.

Strengths & WeaknessesEdit


  • Fearless
  • High stamina
  • Unpredictability
  • Ability to create chaos
  • Strangely high tolerance to radiation, particularly in food...

  • Dumb as a rock
  • A love of machinery that unabashedly approaches fetish territory.
  • Inability to use complex/simple technology (from toasters to, at times, even his own gun) without breaking it.


Though generally very friendly, Ashley doesn't make deep connections with people too easy.

  • Kalina: Ashley sneaks into her shop to oggle the buildings a lot. And dies a lot. Worth it.
  • Orira: They met on the new recruit train. Gorgeous lady. Ashley wonders about her now and then.
