Ashil (アシル, Ashiru, Basil in the English version of the anime series) is a fictional character in the anime series of Shaman King. He is a loyal follower of Hao who replaced Boris' role of being the first on-screen victim of the Archangels. He defied Hao by trying to "accidentally" kill Yoh when he was ordered to have Yoh live. He is later killed by the X-Laws.


He has brown hair in a pageboy style and has grey eyes. His outfit seems to be based on that of Spanish nobles and consists of a black coat with gold lining and white cuffs, a black vest, a white dress shirt, a red sash around his waist, black pants, and black shoes.


Ashil was rather cocky, believing it would be easy to kill Yoh and his friends because of his easily regenerating spirit. He was also revealed as having deep feelings for Hao and is jealous of Hao's interest in Yoh, allowing his deeper feelings to overpower his loyalty.

Travel through AmericaEdit


Ashil approaches Hoshi-Gumi.

Ashil accompanies Asakura Hao as he travels through America.[1] Later, he is seen approaching Hao, Opacho, and Luchist who are relaxing around a fire, complaining about being bored, and wondering if they should just take it easy after they have arrived at the Patch Village. As Hao mentioned there's no need to rush as they still have time, Ashil realizes it is because of Yoh, and that he is too attached to him, arrogantly claiming he is stronger. In response, Hao sends him to eliminate Yoh's friends and states that Yoh's friends are holding him back and that eliminating a few should make even him angered. Ashil happily agrees and asks him if he had no other choice it would be okay to kill Yoh, but Hao merely smirks as Ashil begins to take leave. Before he can run off, Luchist orders Bill Burton to go with him, however, Ashil claims he doesn't need Bill's help, despite Hao telling him he wouldn't get in the way.


Ashil arrives, to attack Yoh and co.

He appears in front of Yoh's group, and introduces himself and claims he has no idea why Hao such such interest in him. Horohoro claims they don't seem to understand it either, with Ashil telling him that it won't matter, as they are all going to die there. As Bill Burton appears and surrounds Yoh, as Ashil laughs cruelly as he tells Yoh can watch his friends die from there. Yoh wonders why he was singled out, and Ashil reveals that he cannot harm Hao's descendant. As Horohoro, Lyserg, Ren, and Ryu do battle with Ashil, Siegfried's arms regenerate and he claims that they are no match for him, striking down both Ryu and Horohoro. The two get up and Ashil continues to battle both of them as well as Lyserg and Ren until Yoh is eventually able to overpower Bill and escape his entrapment.

Ashil's last moments.

Fighting alongside his allies, Yoh and his friends are able to completely destroy Siegfried, as he regenerates it again and vows to destroy the power Yoh has that made Hao so interested in him. Before they can continue any further, Marco Lasso of the X-Laws appears and fires Micheal at him, blasting a hole through both Ashil and Siegfried with a powerful shot that expands into a wave of energy, as a dying Ashil tearfully calls out his master's name.[2]

Anime/Manga DifferenceEdit

Ashil is an anime-only character. He is the first member of Hao's followers to be killed by the X-Laws in the anime series instead of Boris. He also reveals to Yoh and the others that Hao is his ancestor, while taking the role of Mohamed Tabarsi like in the manga series.
