Asherah, the Desert Queen, should have been the protector of the deserts and races of the desert on Xiua. Instead, her greed drives her to attempt to take control of everything she can lay her hands on. Her ultimate goal is to spread the deserts across the world and thus increase her dominion. She created the Genies after aspects of herself to be her mortal agents in the world.

A few Jann, with Asherah's divine influence, managed to escape from the bounds of the Ashen Sea and travel to Ramua. Disguising themselves as the races common to whatever region they traveled, they began spreading rumors of the princess who had been locked away from the world by her terrible father. A lone Jann even managed to reach the Grin, where the Capsin took the story and wove great poems and songs embellishing the tale, praising the beauty and purity of "Eryllin the Great Princess" locked away on her desolate isle and bedeviling that vile, tyrant father of hers, whoever he was, that had doomed her to her woeful fate.

The tale drew many would be heroes, all perishing in the Ashen Sea or at the hands of the genies of the Isle, all except for one. For the tale had reached the ears of the demigod Osric. Mounted atop his faithful dragon, together they overcame all odds, nearly coming to their own ends, until, at last, Osric stood before the beauteous 'Eryllin'. As he knelt before her as her champion, she stole his very heart. The enchantments that Asherah herself had placed on the isle were dismissed, and before Osric opened up a luxurious palatial garden. Enticed to stay and rule the the kingdom as its benevolent king, Osric unwittingly serves at Asherah's every beck and call, honestly believing himself to be wed to the virtuous Eryllin. Asherah secretly runs the kingdom behind Osric's back while occasionally sending him off on daring adventures to gain fame and win honor for her but mostly just to keep him out of the way. Despite her greedy nature, she does have some feelings for Osric, though they remain deeply buried.
