Of all the fighting-oriented characters, Ashes is probably the one that deserves the title 'The Fighter'. She is one of the ones with the most knowledge in fighting, and fighting her by any manner would still prove as a challenge. While she is beautiful, she doesn't take advantage of people using it. She's a character who doesn't rely on her sex appeal to be interesting and appealing.
I like the character, especially due to the fact that her character development either depends on her mentoring Iron Tail, or her relationship with her twin sister. I also like the fact that she's somewhat old-fashioned and always follow traditions, which fits well with Iron Tail because he's a kid who was raised in an old fashioned environment (though it doesn't help her if Iron Tail asks her what other kids think are 'cool'). She's also one of the more tragic characters, the most notable being her inability to give birth despite how much she wants a child of her own.
However, after meeting Iron Tail, she has learned to accept this to an extent and chose to leave her entire legacy to Iron Tail, hoping that he would one day pass on her lessons to his own children or students.
