At a very age Ash’s mother had passed away and at age twelve her father passed away. Now she was under her stepmothers care. She is very cruel to her and she treated as a servant in her own home. She also lives with her two step sisters which are treated better than her. All she wishes is that one day she will get carried away from fairies like in the stories her mother once told her. Everyday when she could she would like to go into the woods and take long walks to remember the stories her mother once told ger. There she then fell in love with Kaisa.
