Ashno of Sages is a rich Emuli holy man[1] and former Prime[2] on Roshar during the Era of Solitude.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Given Ashno's status as one of the greatest leaders in Emul's history[2] and his continued involvement in politics,[3] it is likely he is wise and an excellent leader.

Little is known of Ashno's appearance, but he has a bad back[2] and is somewhat of frail bearing in his old age.[3]


At some point in his life, Ashno became Prime of Emul.[2] His reign was successful and afterwards he is considered to be one of the greatest Emuli Primes in history. At some point he left the throne and was replaced eventually by Vexil the Wise.[3] Even after giving up the throne, Ashno still accompanied Vexil for at least some important political negotiations. It is uncertain at one point in time Ashno became a religious figure, but by his old age he had become well-known as a holy man.[1]

In 1173, Ashno's palace was broken into by Shalash, Baxil, and Av so that Shalash could destroy the art in his Hallowed Hall, including an image of Epan, Lady of Dreams.[1] In 1174, following the arrival of the Everstorm and the invasion of Emul by singers, he accompanied Vexil to Azimir, so they could travel to Urithiru by way of the Oathgate and meet with the coalition.[4] He attended at least one meeting of the coalition, in which it was decided that Aladar would help Emul defend what territory remained to it.[3]
