Ashai is a recurring character in The Legend of Zelda series.[2][3]


Breath of the Wild

Ashai is a Gerudo who lives in Gerudo Town and teaches two classes to young girls before they depart from Gerudo Town.[4] In the past, she and Isha were involved in a love triangle with Aurie Taamu, though both of them remained single in the end.[5][6]

If Link speaks to Ashai while she is walking through Gerudo Town, she introduces herself and asks Link if he is interested in taking her class, "Voe and You".[7] Ashai explains that she teaches a relationship class during the day and a Cooking Class at night.[8] Ashai encourages Link to attend the Cooking Class at her home during the night and her relationship class in the barracks during the day.[9][10]

When speaking to Ashai in the Relationship Classroom before "Voe and You" begins, she asks if Link is interested in sitting in.[11] She then assures Link that there is no hurry and that class does not begin until everyone arrives.[12]

If Link speaks to Ashai during her relationship class, she invites Link to observe if he is interested.[13] If Link rejects her offer, Ashai asks if Link already has a loved one,[14] to which Link scratches the back of his head in embarrassment. Ashai then explains that the young girls in her class have never even met a man before and that it is her duty to prepare them for the world outside of Gerudo Town.[15][16]

Should Link agree to observe the class, Ashai instructs everyone to demonstrate what they have been learning.[17] Ashai then asks the class what to do when a "handsome voe" approaches them on the street.[18] Pasha stands up and answers that she would wave casually yet remain prepared in case he is a distraction for a bandit ambush.[19] Ashai praises Pasha for her solution and then reminds the class that sometimes men only look suspicious from being intimidated by a Gerudo.[20][21] Dina then stands up to share her solution, saying that she would enthusiastically greet the man and approach with her hands empty.[22] Ashai praises Dina for her optimistic approach,[23] adding that friendliness is a great way to relax others.[24] Lastly, Risa stands to share her solution, saying that she would attack the man when he least suspects it.[25] Ashai dismisses Risa's solution and tells her that it is a crime.[26]

Ashai also asks her students what they would do if they encountered an injured voe lying on the ground.[27] Pasha responds that she will lift him over her shoulder and take him to the nearest person who can treat him.[28] Ashai will praise this answer, but she will remind Pasha to check for non-visible injuries before she moves someone.[29] Next, Dina says she would figure out what is wrong with him and then make a medicine to treat him.[30] Once again, Ashai will say Dina has a great answer, but she tells her to make sure he does not have any allergies to the ingredients she uses.[31] Finally, Risa will say that she would secretly take the voe back to her home, where she would help him recover.[32] Ashai says that while Risa's sentiment is sweet, her plan is basically kidnapping.[33]

For her third question, Ashai asks her students what they will do when they are approached and spoken to by a voe whose attention they have sought.[34] Pasha says she would pretend not to speak his language.[35] Ashai comments that her approach is interesting since it could inspire curiosity, and she explains it is unrealistic that he will know the language she pretends to.[36] Dina claims she will take the opportunity to examine his clothes to determine his social status.[37] Ashai commends Dina on her good thinking, but reminds her that sometimes, if someone's nice clothes are dirty, they may wear something more casual.[38] Lastly, Risa says she would grab his hand and twist his wrist until he agreed to marry her.[39] Ashai is left without words, and she tells Risa to speak to her after class.[40]

Before her Cooking Class begins, she tells Link one might as well learn if there is more to learn.[41] If Link agrees with her, she comments on Link's innocent expression.[42] Ashai also explains to Link that she was planning a lesson on Creamy Heart Soup, but she forgot the name of the heart-shaped vegetable in the Recipe.[43] Ashai assures herself that she will remember eventually.[44]
