Occupation Chemist/Cook
Appears in The Way of Kings

Ashir is a chemist/cook and Ardent, who lives with his wife, Geranid, " ... on a tiny Reshi island, technically sent to provide for the religious needs of any Vorin visitors." However, for Ashir, living there was a way of getting away and focusing on both his and his wife's experiments.[1]

His Calling is " ... chemistry - through cooking ... as it always allowed him to eat the results."[1]


He likes to talk and has a soft, kindly voice. However, stating that he tires of cooking because he doesn't have the passion for it that he once did, he questions the worth of a cook in the Spiritual Realm.[1]

The body must be fed in the Physical Realm, but the spirit exists in a completely different state.[1]

Further, he wonders whether those within the Cognitive Realm eat.[1]

I'll have to read and see if anyone has ever eaten while visiting Shadesmar.[1]

He isn't as strong in mathematics as he is in theory.[1]

Q&A with BrandonEdit

Q. Belief has had a lot to do with the Cosmere. (For example in Warbreaker. The appearances of the Returned had a lot to do with belief.) Will belief have a big part to play in The Stormlight Archive?

A. It already has. The two scholars measuring the spren.[2]
