Ashemmi (originally Shemmithil Maraphiir[1]) was a moon elf wizard[2] and the lover and consort of the wizard Sememmon.[3]


Ashemmi had flaxen hair and gold eyes, which went some way to explain the regular confusion over her true race, since these traits are rare in moon elves (she had claimed to be a moon elf around 1372 DR).[4]

Ashemmi changed her appearance frequently, every few months.[4]

As of 1374 DR, Ashemmi's hair was snow-blond, bound in several places with silver ties.[5]


Ashemmi's mother was the gold elf Chelryn Sarynnryllar and her father was the moon elf Rhyem Maraphiir. Her older brother was Malphys Maraphiir.[1]


Early yearsEdit

Ashemmi was born Shemmithil Maraphiir in 1171 DR, to her moon elf father Rhyem Maraphiir and gold elf mother Chelryn Sarynnryllar. She was born in Silverymoon, but shortly after birth, her parents travelled with her to the Neverwinter Woods, to live among the wood elves, where they were taken in by the Ilbaereth clan. Ashemmi's brother, Malphys, had apprenticed under Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun, and when she was around 80, Malphys began to teach her what he knew about magic.[1]

Bright Banner BrandishedEdit

Ashemmi left her home in the Neverwinter Woods in 1261 DR, travelling to Neverwinter where she joined the Bright Banner Brandished, an adventuring company. In 1266 DR, the band became trapped in subterranean crypts north of Mirabar by the lich necromancer Orvanath. The entire company died except for Ashemmi, who escaped using a scroll of teleport, but this experience quelled her desire for adventure.[1]

Sleeping Dragon innEdit

On 28 Uktar 1374 DR, Ashemmi and Sememmon assisted Khelben "Blackstaff" Arunsun to defeat a sharn at the Sleeping Dragon inn,[6] with a combined casting of Petrylloc's Gambit.[5]

Origins in EvermeetEdit

A rumour existed that asserted that Ashemmi was originally a sun elf noble from Evermeet.[4]
