Asal was dead and buried in the Necropolis on Jira.

Then, the pheonix chasing dragon crash landed into the graveyard.... The flames entered the disturbed graves and she was brought back from the dead.  Culture shock!  She never believed it could happen, the people of modern day Jira never believed it could happen - only Denowith was there to give her honnor, acceptance and placement.  She is very dedicated to him (she is one of his Usuals).

She met Twyl and fell in love with him - but circumstances have cut their romance short.
