"Griffin don't want no outsiders."
— Ash Man to Delta-One, upon meeting for the first time in person

Not much is known about Ash Man, also referred to as Weasel by some of the Char Stranded, was a Stranded in Aaron Griffin's community in Char. One of Griffin's lackeys, he covered himself with ash to blend in with the ash statues so he could set up traps throughout the city to ward off intruders without being spotted.

Encounter with DeltaEdit

"Great view from up here, COG. You can see the mess you made of the city! Folks around here haven't forgotten the Hammer strikes."
— Ash Man, while he and Delta Squad move up in the elevator

Ash Man was a Stranded who survived the Hammer of Dawn Counterattack. He then joined Aaron Griffin's group of Stranded to strive through the abandoned lands of Char. 17 years after the HoD Counterattack, he was told by Aaron Griffin that some COG Gears have arrived in Char. Ash Man was sent to plant traps for the Gears. Ash Man tried to scare the Gears off with various traps such as a box of Polyps, a falling piano, ignited propane tanks, and automated turrets, but failed. Soon, the Gears arrived at Griffin Tower, where they were attacked by the Stranded, and soon the Lambent. After the Gears were finished with the Lambent, Ash Man came down an elevator to pick them up.

Marcus grabbed Ash Man by the neck and gave him one chance to not piss him off. Ash Man brought the group up to the tower, and presented them to Griffin. An enraged Griffin told Ash Man to leave for bringing the COG here.

Soon after Griffin sent Delta-One on their way to the Imulsion Factory, Ash Man and the Stranded were attacked by Queen Myrrah's Tempest and her Queen's Guard. Along with everyone except Griffin and the captured Dizzy Wallin, Ash Man was killed by the Locust forces before Delta could return and help eliminate them.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Ash Man served a dangerous role in Griffin's Stranded, because he was frequently sent down to the ground. To keep himself safe, he disguised himself as one of the dead ash people to hide himself from danger.

He's disliked by many in the camp, as they call him a "weasel". One of the Stranded inside Griffin Tower let the COG in because he'd find it fun seeing Griffin beat several shades out of Ash Man.
