Naturally, Ashe is the subject of folk tales across all cultures, usually having something to do with a watchful eye. This perception was fueled by the invention of precision telescopes not long before The War, which captured solid evidence of its "blink" - in other words, the periodic dimming rumored to be observed by sharper-eyed races centuries prior. More than likely the "blink" is simply Ashe being eclipsed by its own planet, though science has yet to prove its existence beyond a doubt.
