Quest to the Fountain
Asha Fountain in the hope that it could cure her sickness. After the trials, she was left exhausted and near death, so her companion Altheda quickly prepared a potion that not only saved her life, but cured her affliction too. In this way, both Asha and Altheda found what they sought, and realised that they didn't need the Fountain's blessing.
Asha is derived from Sanskrit 'asa' meaning 'hope', and is also an African word meaning life.
Behind the scenes
In the Hogwarts production the girl who played Asha fought in a duel with the girl who played Amata, over the boy who played Sir Luckless. This was because the boy had just broken off his relationship with "Amata" so he could date "Asha" instead.
