- "A twenty-year-old Togruta Padawan, Ashara Zavros descends from a long line of Force users. From an early age, she has aspired to study the Force and become one of the best Jedi that the Order has to offer. Ashara came to Taris to train under Jedi Masters Ryen and Ocera, whose philosophy is that Padawans best learn the travails of using the Force through firsthand experience of the galaxy. In Ashara’s case, the Masters brought her to Taris for two reasons: First, to teach her compassion amidst the destruction that had occurred there and warn against the dangers of pride and the dark side. Second, to complete her trials by helping to drive a dark ghost from the ruins of a Jedi enclave."
- ―In-game Codex (Persons of Note)
Ashara Zavros is a female Togruta companion for the Sith Inquisitor class. She descended from a long line of Force users and was raised as a Jedi. The Sith Inquisitor will meet her on the planet Taris.
She is a romance option for a male Sith Inquisitor.
Intelligent and eager to prove herself, the Jedi Padawan Ashara Zavros is the latest in a long and storied family lineage of Force-adepts. Throughout her childhood Ashara heard stories of her ancestors' adventures. These tales were an inspiration to her, and Ashara devoted herself to the study of the Force and the Jedi Code, determined to be among the greatest Jedi that the Order had ever seen.
Her knowledge of the Jedi Code, along with her prowess with a lightsaber and command of the Force, quickly catapulted Ashara to be among the top pupils. But while she was undoubtedly gifted, Ashara was also headstrong and proud. This pride can often lead to insecurity, and Ashara is quick to frustration and will sometimes question her abilities in the face of adversity. But even in the face of the most difficult obstacles, a steadfast devotion to the Jedi Code has kept Ashara on the path of light.
Ashara has continued her training under the tutelage of Masters Ocera and Ryen, each of whom believe that one must travel across the galaxy and gain firsthand experience in order to truly understand the Force and both the burden and the gift that it represents.
Ashara's force using family can be traced all the way back to the time of Revan, when an unnamed dark-side ancestor of her's was on Taris when Darth Malak ordered the Imperial fleet to destroy the planet in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic in an attempt to stop Revan from escaping the imperial blockade with Bastila Shan.
As a Padawan of the Jedi Order, she exhibited great skills with her light saber, even stating to the Sith inquisitor that she had personally bested one of the Jedi masters in her sparring training. She also exhibited a great deal of impatience because of her prowess in combat which led her to constantly question her master's constant preaching of temperance. This is in fact what led the Sith inquisitor to initially become interested in Ashara, thinking it was possible to turn her to the dark side from manipulating those harbored emotions.
When the Sith inquisitor meets Ashara he/she is able to manipulate her to being allowed into the enclave, where the dark side ghost resides. However, she calls upon the Jedi masters to deal with the Inquisitor after she returns to the Jedi enclave.
Ashara is amazed when the Sith bests the Jedi masters and kills them, and is further surprised when the inquisitor absorbs the ghost into himself/herself, cleansing the enclave; something the Jedi had been unable to do. Afterwards she joins the Sith inquisitor out of a belief that she has no other choice, rather than a willingness to do so.
Once a companion, she constantly questions the Sith inquisitor's actions, both light and dark, the Jedi code being her criteria. Overtime the inquisitor can bring her to accept their line of reasoning (this is much easier for a light-sided character to do), and even comes to respect her new master.

Ashara is at first hot-headed and prideful, questioning her teachers constantly as she sees them restraining her. However, she also shows an uncanny mind, able to understand philosophy when she easily tells the meanings behind the Jedi code. Despite her excellent understanding of higher learning, she prefers to focus on martial prowess instead, partially due to her ideas that the Sith must be dealt with by action.
Overtime however, both under her Jedi masters and then under the apprenticeship of Lord Kallig (the Sith inquisitior), she comes to be less aggressive; focusing more on diplomacy and philosophy. This is how she is able to convince some Jedi to help the Sith inquisitor (light-sided) to reform the empire.
If the inquisitor is dark-side however, her focus on martial prowess becomes even more prominent. Not out of influence by the dark side itself, but by revulsion and fear of the Sith inquisitor. (This can be avoided by a male if he romances Ashara).
