Once a simple farmer, Ash's wife was murdered by a vampire, which he killed. After that, he was inducted into the Green Lantern Corps. He later learned that the vampire that murdered his wife was a follower of the cosmic vampire Starbreaker, and Ash dedicated himself to eliminating Starbreaker and his followers.
The Anti-Monitor's CorpseEdit
Because he did not fear the things that lurked in the dark, the Guardian known as Scar assigned him the task of locating the corpse of the Anti-Monitor. After some time searching, Ash located the Anti-Monitor's helmet, the angle of which indicated that the body was located somewhere in Space Sector 0666. Ash continued his search into Sector 0666 and eventually met up with Green Lantern, Saarek, a Corpsman who had the ability to speak to the dead. He had also been sent by Scar to search for the Anti-Monitor's corpse. They traveled together and eventually discovered the Black Lantern Power Battery. Saarek realized that they had made a terrible mistake, when the corpse of the Anti-Monitor rose up to grab them, killing both offscreen. Both Ash and Saarek became Black Lanterns, and were with Scar and the captured Guardians around the Black Central Battery on Ryut and on Coast City. Both were destroyed by the Lantern corps during the fight with Nekron.
