Ashton Fletcher Irwin is one of the Zodiac Heroes and one of the 3rd year students. He is the deuteragonist of the series.
Ashton Fletcher Irwin is university student entering his 3rd year. When he and his peers were transferred to Auckland, New Zealand, they were staying in a creepy, old fashioned house. When exploring the place that night, something was glowing on the bookshelf. Luke accidently touched it when all of the sudden, he and his peers were falling down from the trap door to the underground. That's when they meet an old man who is the guardian. He isn't given any amulet because of his intimidating appearance but his weapon is now a Shield after getting Dark Syndrome.
Ashton Fletcher Irwin is an Australian 25-year-old student with Shield-themed powers. When he and his peers were about to enter their house in New Zealand, they were falling down all of the sudden. They soon met an AI who lead them to an office where they meet Sir Simon again. When he activates his powers this time, he has a red and black suit with red-screened goggles and he can use his powers.
He is shown to have short, messy, curly middle-parted dirty blonde hair(dyed red), hazel/green eyes and fair skin with dimples. He wears a red dress shirt with black polka dots under a black blazer, black jeans and black shoes. His shield is shown to be red and translucent like the other dark syndrome victims. His sleepwear consists of a white tank top and black shorts. He stands on 6 ft. and is shown to be muscular compared to the other characters. He has an ahoge in the manga and anime version.
He can be chirpy and optimistic and friendly. However, during the prologue, he has depression and has been suffering from it for a long time. When he feels another person with Dark Syndrome, he can be serious and can tell who is he feeling.
While he is depressed, he can be quiet and not care about what's around him which is most likely one of the symptoms of depression. He can also be serious throughout the series when he has to solve someone's fate. At other times, he can show immaturity like the other characters.
Despite the series mainly taking place in Australia and New Zealand and that Ashton is of Irish and American descent, Ashton is a fairly American name.
His middle name, Fletcher is a fairly British, Irish and Scottish name and Irwin is also a fairly British name. Overall his name origins don't make sense along with him being of Irish and American descent.
'Ashton' is a given name derived from an English surname derived from a place name meaning "ash tree town."
