This mysterious Savant and Eremite is the Author of Ye Olde Book of Lore, a vast encyclopedia treating on the world of Southparkia. Anonymous Southparkian Historian (or ASH), is a mysterious and legendary figure. Some say he was the teacher of Queen Janina herself. Some might say that he lives in an abadoned tower, somewhere in No Man's Land. Some even say he's not even a human, and he's as old as the land of Southparkia itself. But there's one sure thing about him: He traveled around the world, he's been on every continent and islet, Dived in deepest Abyss, and climbed the highest mountains, just to collect knowledge of every land, race, and all history of Southparkia. In fact, the tremendous erudition and knowledge forced out his Name and Memories from his Mind. In the result ASH knows everything about Southparkia, but doesn't know who he is.
