Asher grew up on the streets of LA, he knew what it meant to fight for survival even before the apocalypse set upon him. While many of his friends joined the military and began to go to college Asher found his own way in life. A less than legal way. He built small arms running crew and began to supply various gangs and rebel groups with munitions. Soon he found himself selling to militias inside of Chenarus and going off of a lead he grounded himself in Chenarus when the outbreak happened. Just narrowly escaping the cities he realized that hundreds if not thousands of people had been killed using guns he had supplied through the years. He vowed to himself that he would lead a new life and shortly after the main outbreak he fled north with a group of survivors hoping to help the Innocent people and redeem himself to the world.
