Saeki Anri, known as Ashe, is one of the 10,000 players trapped in Sword Art Online. She is the sub-leader of the clearing guild Ursa Minor and is the tritagonist of the fan fiction Misfortune Made Her Sword.
Ashe is a taller than average young woman. She has long, dark brown hair, most often styled half-up, half-down, and similarly coloured eyes.
Early on in the game she wears a red collared shirt with a leather breast plate, dark leggings and boots up to the knees.
Ashe is a very friendly person and is well in her element in larger social situations, though she seems to prefer one-on-one. She is considerate of other people, and tends to be a little too trusting, a fact Renee has exploited in the past for amusement. Ashe also enjoys helping people, and has difficulty saying no to people requesting favours. As a result, she often finds herself in over her head.
Arc 1: Into the Fire
Ashe is Renee's best friend since the 2nd grade. Despite their diverging interests, the two have managed to stay close over the years. While their opinions don't always align on certain matters, they each fancy the other their sister. They've built up a level of comfort with each other to match, having been shown to be okay with changing in front of each other and sharing a bed.
The two met in the fields surrounding the Town of Beginnings on the game's launch day and Ashe invited him along with her and Renee following Kayaba's announcement. She usually acts as the mediator in his arguments with Renee.
After saving her from a pack of Kobold Troopers in the first floor labyrinth, and the girl joined their party, she and Ashe developed a quiet friendship.
Ashe was the first person Rapha met within the game. The meeting was a brief one, lasting only a few minutes or so in the main square of the Town of Beginnings during Kayaba's announcement. After the announcement, when Renee arrived, Rapha told Ashe to go and assured her that she would be okay.
