Ashallyn' darkmyr Tallyn (Ash) is the prince of the Winter Court in the Nevernever. He is the husband of Meghan, friend of Puck's, and father of Prince Keirran. He is the youngest son of Mab, Queen of the Winter Court, and younger brother to Sage and Rowan.

Ash is introduced to the story when he is in pursuit of Puck and Meghan gets caught in the crossfire. He is formally introduced at the spring Elysium when the Unseelie Court travels to Oberon's territory. At the end of The  Iron Knight, it was Ariella's sacrificing of herself that allowed Ash to retain his faery magic and never age or die, even though he had a human's soul.

It was revealed that Ash will never age by Ms. Kagawa.


The Iron KingEdit

Ash is first introduced when Meghan and Puck are treking through the wyldwood, and Ash starts chasing Puck and Meghan on horseback. They narrowly escape, and Ash doesn't catch them.

Ash makes his second apperance at the Elysium, which is held at the castle of the Seelie court. Being the daughter of Oberon, Meghan and Ash had to dance together, out of respect to Queen Mab, King Oberon and Queen Titania.

In the end, Ash and Meghan trek through the Wyldwood to the mysterious Iron Realm, to retrieve Meghan's brother, kidnapped by Iron Faeries to lure Meghan to the Iron Realm. Ash does this, but only knowing that Meghan will turn herself into the Unseelie court. On this journey, Ash slowly falls in love with Meghan, and they become forbidden lovers - forbidden because Ash is the Prince of the Unseelie court; a Winter Faery, and Meghan the half blooded princess of the Seelie court; a Summer Faery.

The Iron DaughterEdit

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.

Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart. Ash treats her like scum on the bottom of his steely cold boot. Meghan realizes that she has the power to shape iron glamour. She uses it throughout the book as she tries to get the special scepter from an iron fey named Virus.

The Iron QueenEdit

In this book, Meghan not long after by the famous Puck. Meghan has trouble with her glamour. Meanwhile, in the Nevernever, the courts are struggling with the false king and they suddenly need the three people they had recently banished: Meghan, Ash, and Puck. The three are offered reentrance to the Nevernever if they take out the false king. Joined by Grimalkin, they travel into the Iron Realm. Along the way they make new friends, enemies, and new revelations are discovered. A heartbreaking decision is made in the end.

The Iron KnightEdit

The Iron Knight is a story from Ash's perspective. Therefore, he is the main focus of the story, where he treks through the Deep Wyld, and follows the river of dreams to find the end of the world, where he must earn a soul to be with Meghan.

At the end of the world, where Puck, Grimalkin, The Wolf, and Ariella have come with him, Ash and the crew must complete a gauntlet, where anything could happen. After the Gauntlet, Ash must go through several other tests, where the only goal is to survive.


Ash has a strong command over Winter Glamour in The Iron King, The Iron Queen, The Iron Daughter, and most of The Iron Knight. It is assumed that he loses this power over Winter Glamour when he visits the End of the World though he regains it shortly thereafter. It is never how it used to be, however. He is a formidable and mightly talented swordsman, as shown when fighting various enemies throughout the books.


Ash is often cold and mysterious, something learned while living in the Unseelie Court. He does not often express emotion and it's hard to tell what he's thinking. He's a fairly loyal person, true to his word - as all fey are, but he is also shrouded in guilt for the deaths he's caused. Ash can completely "close off" his face, making it blank and unreadable, something the Winter fey have to learn, since emotion is considered a heavy weakness. He has a dry, chillingly amusing humor and irony at times. With his human soul, Ash is more amusing, warmer, easier to tease, and less mysterious. He is still, and forever more, a feared warrior and prince.


Ash is described as a strikingly handsome man with bright silver eyes, high cheekbones, and pale skin. He has thick, tossled jet-black hair that ends at his shoulder and jagged bangs. He is lean, muscular and tall, with the typical pointed ears of a faery and an earring in one. Meghan first described him as looking "cold, hard, and inhuman". But then she describes him as a handsome inhuman faery that is a daredevil and is loyal person who loves to spar with Glitch and Puck-Robin Goodfellow.


Meghan Chase

Meghan is Ash's current lover, after Ariella died. He revealed that he had feelings for her in The Iron King when he saves her from Ironhorse using his control over ice. They become forbidden lovers because of the fact that they are from two feuding courts. However, in The Iron Daughter, he treats Meghan like scum when he arrives back at the castle but it was only so Mab or anyone else wouldn't suspect anything. In Iron's Prophecy, it is revealed that they are married and currently living together in the Iron Realm.It also reveals they have a son named Kerrian in The Iron's Prophecy.


Ariella Turalyn was Ash's first lover and managed to show Ash that there is more to life than blocking out everyone and everything because of your heritage. She was thought to be the prettiest of the Winter fey and most likely also the Summer. Ash loved Ariella deeply, and in return she cared for him too. When she died, Ash vowed to kill Puck, who he believes was responsible for Ariella's death. She was reborn shortly after her death to serve as a Seer. As a seer, Ariella finds out that Ash would soon fall in love with Meghan but despite this, she continues to love him. In The Iron Knight, she accompanies Ash, Puck and the Wolf on Ash's journey to get a soul. She was jealous of Meghan and Ash's relationship, but in the end, she sacrificed herself so they could be together.
