The Illuminae Files Wikia

Asha Grant is Kady Grant's cousin, who survived the attack on Kerenza IV.


Asha Grant is shown to be pragmatic and collected, though it is revealed that her past was much different and unhealthy. Asha is not of any special skills or talents like many of her fellow Illuminae members, but possesses great bravery and compassion, shown through her devotion to Katya Kowalski. It is also worth mentioning that she is the one who taught Rhys Lindstrom how to cheat in cards. She claims to be an expert at conning/lying, which is how she and Rhys snuck into restricted areas without being punished.


Asha Grant has a removed but still partially visible tattoo that serves as evidence of her and Rhys' time together, which says Rhys and Asha. She has dark skin and green eyes. She also has a tattoo on her wrist that says Samaira, in memory of her deceased sister. She is described as having light brown skin and dark hair, and green eyes.


Asha only appears in Obsisdio. Her part is that of an resistance member on Kerenza IV. During the BeiTech occupation she works as a pharmacy intern. During her time there her ex (Rhys) arrives as a BeiTech "Specialist". Asha and the rest of the Kerenzan resistance manage to defect Linstrom to their side and send an SOS message to anyone who might be listening. Lucky for them, the approaching Mao receives the transmission. At the end of the book, she and Rhys seem to be back together, and Katya (who was shot uring the fight between BeiTech and the Resistance) is fully recovered and taken to see the judge during the court session.

"I'm not a nurse. I'm a pharmacy intern. But most of our nurses are dead because of soldierboy *****s like you"
