Sure, I could have stayed in the past. I could have even been king. But in my own way, I am king.

Hail to the king, baby.

Life is hard and dangerous, and sometimes you just gotta chop off somebody's head to survive.
~ Ash
~ Ash's mythical phrase


Ashley J. Williams is the main protagonist and hero of The Evil Dead film franchise, along with its TV series.

During 1982, Ashley Williams with her girlfriend Linda, her sister Cheryl, and her friends Scott and Shelly went to spend the weekend in a mysterious cabin in the woods. However, what appears to be a quiet weekend turns into a bloodbath when Ash finds the Necronomicon Ex Mortis, the Book of the Dead, and accidentally ends up freeing the Kandarian Demon, who ends up possessing Ash's friends, which forces the latter to kill them to survive.

The next day, Ash tries to escape from the cabin, however, the bridge back home had been destroyed, forcing Ash to stay one more night in the cabin. It is in these moments that the head of his possessed girlfriend bites his hand, forcing Ash to cut it off to stop the infection.

When Annie Knowby realizes what is happening, she is together with Ash devising a plan to defeat the Kandarian Demon, where Ash ends up donning a chainsaw as a prosthesis.

But unfortunately, Ash teleports back to 1300 AD. C. where realizes that he is the chosen one, the hero fallen from heaven prophesied to free the world from evil. This is where Ash fights the army of darkness, led by his evil copy, Evil Ash, whom Ash had accidentally awakened after mispronouncing a passage from the Necronomicon. After winning the battle, Ash would return when given a sleeping position until he woke up in due time from him.

30 years later, Ash awakens to evil when he reads Necronomicon on drugs, forcing him to face evil again with Pablo and Kelly.

General Information

Name: Ashley Joanna "Ash" Williams, The Chosen One, The Hero Fallen from Heaven, Ashy Slashy, El Jefe

Origin: The Evil Dead

Sex: Male

Age: 20's in the trilogy, 50's in Ash vs Evil Dead

Classification: Mechanic, The Chosen One, Savior of Humanity

Status: Alive

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral (Although he calls himself a "hero", he makes certain questionable decisions, for example: when Ruby made a deal with Ash to leave him alone if he returned the Necronomicon, he accepted without thinking about the consequences of it. He is quite rude and selfish, the latter of which was shown when he asked Wise Man to return him to his original time, not caring that the army of darkness attacked Kandar's castle and killed the people who lived there. Despite all of this, Ash is a genuinely good person, going so far as to put himself on the line for other people even though he usually treats them badly or insults them)

Even after needing to kill the ones he cares for, he still has the will to keep going. Baal knocked out Ash and forced him in a mental hospital, attempting to make him lose his sanity into thinking that everything about the Deadites and the Necronomicon was a lie his whole life. Even when making perfect copies to further trick him, it had no permanent effect on Ash), Regeneration (At least Low, likely Mid-Low. Ash had flesh from his leg torn apart, but seemingly had it healed by the next morning. His stump stopped bleeding after cutting off his hand. Likely healed from having his brain be damaged by Eligos on multiple occasions).

The dagger can negate Ruby's regeneration, who can reform from being just a skeleton.
