Ashaba was a water wizard[1] and the first Lord of Shadowdale after driving the drow out of the Twisted Tower in 906 DR.[2] Ashaba ruled Shadowdale for thirty four years until 940 DR.[3]

Ashaba created the Pendant of Ashaba, to be used to determine the rightful lord of Shadowdale.[3]

Ashaba ultimately changed himself into a water elemental in 940 DR.[3] and merged with the river that he gave his name to, the River Ashaba.[1]
