Asch the Bloody (アッシュ, Asshu) or Asch is a character from the game Tales of the Abyss for the Plastation 2. Asch starts off as an antagonist but eventually becomes a main protagonist. He is playable for a short amount of time, which can be increased through use of sidequests.
 Brief Overview
Asch the Bloody is one of the Six God-Generals of the Oracle Knights. Throughout the first part of the story he works in the background as opposed to the other God Generals who constantly go after Fon Master Ion and Luke. Asch occasionally strikes Luke, almost killing him. Not much is known about Asch but from the encounters Luke's group has had it is noted how much Asch resembles Luke.
Asch may resemble Luke, but he does not play like him. They have the majority of the same Artes, but they do not have the same play style. For example, Luke is focused only on melee combat (for he has no Magic Artes), but Asch is focused on both Magic and Melee, for he has Artes for both styles.
Unlike Luke's long-range close combat, Asch's blade is shorter. Because of this, he attacks faster, but does not have the same range that Luke has. It is impossible to change his swords, for all of his equipment is locked on to the Maestro Equipment. He does wield the Sword of Lorelei, but he is never playable while he uses this weapon.
He very often uses Spells, such as Thunder Blade and Explosion. His casting speed is about average unless A.D. Skills are used to increase his speed. Overall, his magic is not very good, and is mainly used as a weapon if there are other melee fighters on the field that can cover for him.
