Asha Greyjoy is a member of House Greyjoy and is the daughter of Lord Balon Greyjoy by his wife, Alannys Harlaw. She becomes a POV character in A Feast For Crows.
As a child Asha was a skinny girl with knob knees and a face full of pimples. In her mid-twenties, Asha is lean and longlegged, with dark eyes and black hair cut short. Her face is thin, with a big, sharp nose, and wind-chafed skin. On her neck is a faded pink scar. Her brother Theon believes her nose is too big and sharp for her small face, however, but feels that her wicked smile makes up for it.
Asha is a wild and headstrong young woman, raised by her mother to be bold. There is a boldness to the way she walks; part saunter, part sway. She possesses a sharp wit, and has no problem with holding her own against men, both in a verbal battle and in a physical fight. Defying the classical gender roles of Westerosi culture, Asha was appalled early on by the idea of becomming a lord's wife. After her older two brothers died and her younger brother was taken hostage, her father Balon began to see her as his heir, treating her like he would a son.
Asha prefers dressing in man's garb, and personally leads her men into battle. She captains her own ship, the Black Wind, and has the devotion of her crew, who take a perverse pride in the deeds of their female captain. According to Asha, half of them love her like a daughter, while the other half wants to sleep with her. Regardless, Asha loves her men, and is willing to die for them, as they are for her. In battle, Asha prefers an axe, which she has been practicing with since she was just a little girl. She also keeps a dirk with her.
While her counterpart in HBO's TV series Game of Thrones, Yara Greyjoy, is bisexual, George R. R. Martin has confirmed that Asha is not.
