"I did this for you and for our brother"
-Ash's words to Terra after she questions him about who he is right now
Ashtaroth is a human transformed demon who is considered the enemy of the Titans and Villains. He acts as the bridge of Good and Evils and is never hesitant to attack the two alliances. He is the "dead" prince of Markovia which he considers as true as the brother Terra and Geo-Force once knew died along time ago. He now serves the demon prince Samael.
The second heir of the throne of the kingdom of Markovia, Ash was the 2nd prince of Markovia, the older brother of Terra and the young brother of Geo-Force. He was the one who took care of Terra the most since all her younger life was always in confusion.
Before Terra and Geo-Force were ever experimented, Ash was captured and experimented by a Satanic Cult. One 6:00 at night on June 6, Ash was placed on a stone tablet where a satanic ritual took place. He had marks placed on his bodies, both his feet and leg chaned and around the tablet was a drawn satanic circle.
Darkness consumed Ash as he entered hell, stood in front of him was the demon Samael. The demon questioned him why he was here and Ash hesitently answered him wtih an honest answer. Samael saw a mission of revenge inside the young boy and promised him eternal power.
Ash who was in hell was filled by such evil, made his thurst for revenge grew agreed to it. His quest to receive power was to make sure that the 9 nine hells wasn't having troubles.Ash agreed and entered the 9 hells. Each completing a request by the ones who commanded each circle. He returned to Samael and told that his job was finish. Samael congratulated the young soul and gave him his satanic power. Before Ash left, he requested one thing from Samael which the demon accpeted.
Ash's appearance had changed, his blonde hair became silver and his eyes became crimson red. Ash bid the demon farewell promising that he will never regret receiving his power. But for what he didn't know was by the time Samael's powers were given to him, his humanity disappaeared.
Ash awoke from his travel and quickly slaughtered the cults. He left the place and travelled towards anywhere to make sure that no one would ever see him again, especially his family. He tested his teleporting power and then transported himself landing on H.I.V.E. academy.
Ash learned about this academy thanks to the teachings and vast knowledge his master gave him as an extra present. He changed his name to Ashtaroth and entered the academy, he at first became a loner but after so many trainings and sessions, he was known as one of the strongest H.I.V.E. students and gave him the title Death's Executioner
One time of his H.I.V.E. life, he met a young Jinx. He saw potential in the girl and thanks to her eager drive to reach the ranks of the greatest villains, he became her partner in crime. All around they showed their teamwork and abilities making them known to all as "The Duel Duo". He also became friends with Gizmo and Mammoth while he was there. There was also a rumor about him working with Madame Rogue in H.I.V.E. but people only believed it to be rumors.
There was an incident that happened in H.I.V.E. making Ashtaroth leave, wishing Jinx the best of luck. Jinx was betrayed as her partner just left without telling her why, so she vowed her work in a high degree wanting to forget Ashtaroth.
The Master and Fire
Ashtaroth returned to his lone travels and met Brother Blood or his name that time Brother Sebastian, who even if he acted nice, wasn't able to escape Ashtaroths keen eyes. The two worked and thanks to Ashtaroth's incredible knowledge, he gave Brother Blood the way how he could tranform himself into a cyborg. He left Sebastian in hope of finding someting that might bring him happiness.
After the events with Brother Blood, he met a being capures Blackfire, not knowing who she trully was, he slaugtered her captors and escape with Blackfire. Blackfire thanked the young warriors, who left almost left but then told her if she wants to travel with him then she could. Of course she was a little hesitant but with the Centauri police after her, she needed someone's help.
She traveled with Ashtaroth which she found was a strange person. He wasn't surprised when she revealed herself to be a Tamaran princess, the way he acted when he killed showed that he was already use to it, his strange personality and his destructive powers.
After a long travel, lackfire bid farewell to Ashtaroth and left. The young warrior, meanwhile, traveled once more and met some heroes like Aqualad, Jericho, Bushido and Speedy.
Soon he heard about the news of his sister Terra and went fort to search for her.
Jump City Chaos
He is currently staying in Jump City watching over his sister Terra while battling with an old enemy of his master. He seems to have a feud with both the Teen Titans and Villains.
He has shoulder length silver hair, red crimson eyes and a soft look. He, like Terra, once had blonde hair and blue eyes but changes into silver once he transformed into his inner demon for the first time.
His wardrobe consist of a full-length black coat and a waist-high slit going up the back, a red inner poet shirt, a pair of black pants and matching black shoes.
He is considered someone who is neaither Good nor Evil. He follows his path and what he believes is right or wrong. No matter what people says to him, he doesn't follow them but will take interest in things that intrigues him.
He has no remorse or even mercy to anyone he kills, to him killing is normal to him. He entertains himself but slowly and playfully destroying his enemies, he never wants to end his targets quick as it bores him if the job is finished.
He has no belief in any kind of motto the world carries. His body and soul has and will always be be gray, the color that equals black and white. He carries no evidence of love, remorse, pity, and sadness. His emotions have been locked making it easy for him to plan.
He rarely shows any sign of alarm or distress and often has entire situations planned out well in advance. In battles, he tends to do small talk with his enemies making some conversation. Most of his mission which he considers as capture target, he tends to let them live long, long enough to tell him things.
The way he keeps his emotions locked, makes him think his plans perfectly. He is well-versed in the history, strategy, tactics of the world, and is privy to knowledge previously unknown to many. He is shown to be very craft and cunning, cunning enough to fool all the students in H.I.V.E. seeing as they believed that he was someone who wanted to become a villain.
He has also shown himself as a powerful and flexible tactician, capable of adjusting to any given combat situation, and planning all out in advance. He understands the strengths, weaknesses and mannerisms of his enemies and creates strategies to achieve victory even if he acts foolishly and insane.

Chronosphere- ability that allows him to control time in some degree. It was once a gift from god given to the angels but with Samael being a fallen angel, he is knowledgable about the chronosphere.

Eye of Hell- A special skill that allows him, whoever he has eye contact with, to send a person in a painful illusion.What happens in the illusion is controlled by Ashtaroth bending them beyond their wills and even torturing them.

7 Seals of Heaven- 7 powerful seals that are scattered around the world, they are the most powerful items and his greatest weaknesses. The seals carry unimaginable purifying powers which are a threat to him. For the seals to work one must placed them on a specific spot in Ashtaroth's body: Both of his hands, both of his feet, his chest, his forehead while the last one is held just above his body.
The Seal would seal all his powers as long as they are never remove. Only those who have pure hearts can use this seal and be the ones to remove them.
Lucifer- A special scythe which was given to him by his master. The scythe has a special ability which can transform into a spear, act like a boomerang and can even be covered in flames.
The scythe belonged to Samael who once used it against God. The scythe was made from demon bones and forge in the fires of hell. Legends foretold that this weapon injured God and while placed in hell became a blackhole where damned souls are consumed.
The weapon is held and used by Ashtaorth with deadly accuracy, no matter how big the weapon is, Ashtaroth can use it with ease. No one other than Ashtaroth and Samael can weild the weapon, whoever touches the sword other than them will be burned as the weapon releases a strong dark energy.
The full power of this weapon can only be used if Samael weilds it, as he is the Demon Prince. While Ashtaroth maybe strong, he is not pure and his power is not strong making hum unable to true hidden power of ths weapon.
