How Ashleigh joined the Tourney
Ashleigh Crichton (アシュリー・クライトン, Ashurī Kuraiton) is the son of an alchemist couple from Milos and the older brother of Julia Crichton. In his youth, Ashleigh studied the alchemical notes left by his parents regarding the secrets of Milos and the Sanguine Star. However, Ashleigh stumbled upon the scene of his parents' murder and was himself attacked by their killer, Atlas, who stripped off the boy's face and a patch of skin under his arm which contained an tattooed map of the Milos ruins.
Injured from exsanguination after Atlas' flight, Ashleigh discovered a Sanguine Star his parents had hidden nearby and, swallowing it, used its power to keep himself alive, though he was unable to heal his face. Bent on avenging himself and his parents, Ashleigh infiltrated the Cretan military under the pseudonym "Herschel" and while wearing a mask.
Searching for Atlas, Ashleigh learns of a newspaper article about the second Smash Bros. Tourney. He first demonstrates his abilities to a young man named Ciel Phantomhive.
