Ashai is a character in Breath of the Wild.[1]


Ashai is a Gerudo who lives in Gerudo Town and teaches two classes to young girls before they depart from Gerudo Town.[2] 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".[3] Ashai explains that she teaches a relationship class during the day and a Cooking class at night.[4] Ashai encourages Link to attend the Cooking class at her home during the night and her relationship class in the barracks during the day.[5][6] If Link speaks to Ashai in her home before the Cooking class begins, she tells Link one might as well learn if there is more to learn.[7] If Link agrees with her, she comments on Link's innocent expression.[8] 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.[9][10][11] Ashai assures herself that she will remember eventually.[12] If Link speaks to Ashai in the classroom in the barracks before her relationship class begins, she asks if Link is interested in the class.[13] She then assures Link that there is no hurry and that class does not begin until everyone arrives.[14]

If Link speaks to Ashai during her relationship class, she invites Link to observe the class if he is interested.[15] If Link rejects her offer, Ashai asks if Link already has a loved one,[16] 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.[17][18] If Link agrees to observe the class, Ashai instructs everyone to demonstrate what they have been learning.[19] Ashai then asks the class what to do when a "handsome voe" approaches them on the street.[20] Pasha stands up and answers that she would wave casually yet remain prepared in case he is a distraction for a bandit ambush.[21] Ashai praises Pasha for her solution and then reminds the class that sometimes men only look suspicious from being intimidated by a Gerudo.[22][23] Dina then stands up to share her solution, saying that she would enthusiastically greet the man and approach with her hands empty.[24] Ashai praises Dina for her optimistic approach,[25] adding that friendliness is a great way to relax others.[26] Lastly, Risa stands to share her solution, saying that she would attack the man when he least suspects it.[27] Ashai dismisses Risa's solution and tells her that it is a crime.[28]
