Ashil (known as Basil in the English version of the 2001 Anime series) is a powerful shaman, who was loyal to Hao who replaced Boris' role of being the first on-screen victim of the X-Laws and their Archangels.

Ashil has deep feelings for Hao and is quite jealous of Hao's interest in Yoh, allowing his deeper feelings to overpower his loyalty. He defied Hao to "accidentally" kill Yoh when he was ordered to have Yoh alive and to kill his friends. When the battle started, "Big Guy" Bill Burton captures Yoh and makes sure that he doesn't reach his friends, who are fighting Against Ashil. In the end, Ashil was shot by Marco of the X-Laws and the Archangel Michael.
