"...was sick of a malady no Healer could cure"
—Asha's description[src]

Asha was one of three female protagonists in the Beedle the Bard story The Fountain of Fair Fortune, included in The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Biography

Early life

Nothing is known about Asha's earlier life, only that she was a witch who became sick of a debilitating illness which no Healer had been able to treat.

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.

Etymology

Asha is derived from Sanskrit 'asa' meaning 'hope',[1] 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.
