Ashura used to be a goblin, but he used the power of MAGI and became a monster with three heads and six arms.
His men manages to retrieve some MAGI in the Relics of the Ancient Gods, they attacked and kill two members of the Guardians just outside of the ruins. When the party tries to retrieve the stolen MAGI in Ashura's Base, they find out that the majority of them were already in Ashura's hands.
When the party reaches the top of his tower, Ashura awaits at the top of a set of stairs. He tells the party that he was about to send someone to tell them that one of his minions micronized and went into Ki's body. He also further says that Ki was born with MAGI in her body which gave her the power of healing. If he gets those MAGI, she will die. Killing two birds with one stone, but now that the party is before him. Boasting further, he says that he'll kill them and that will make it three birds.
Ashura ends up being defeated by the party, but they still have to deal with the minion that he sent inside Ki. The party rushes to Ki in First World at her shrine.
Ashura has 900 HP and has Damage, meaning that the elemental attacks are useless on him. However, Ashura is vulnerable to status ailments. Ashura also has Flame, the same as the female mutant's starting ability and a variety of physical attacks.
Ashura is the Japanese pronunciation of Asura. Asuras (Sanskrit: असुर) are mythological lord beings in Indian texts who compete for power with the more benevolent devas (also known as suras). Asuras are described in Indian texts as powerful superhuman demigods or demons with good or bad qualities.
