King Omar was the incumbent ruler of Lathyrus when the light of the Ashen's final breath began to fade. Amara was his daughter. He became obsessed with the fading light of the Third Age and took the Human Heart of Lathyrus for himself, eventually becoming the Shadow of the Ashen.
As the Shadow of the Ashen, King Omar serves as the penultimate boss in Ashen.
- Shadow of the Ashen is a highly mobile boss. For the first half of the fight Amara will be helping you in addition to your normal partner. He has a very large cleaving radius and occasionally spins, so keep your distance and choose your moments. He can also cover a lot of ground very quickly, so always be ready to dodge even when he isn't focusing on you.
- Shadow minions will spawn throughout the fight. You can choose to keep a distance from them and focus on the boss, but later stages of the fight can get a bit crowded if you take this route.
- He will occasionally warp to the middle of the room and charge an attack that temporarily covers the center of the room in fire. He'll be inactive for a few seconds while the floor is still on fire, so if you're feeling brave and have health to spare you can use this chance to cross the fire and get a few free hits in.
- At 50% he will remove Amara from the fight and become far more aggressive. He does not gain any new abilities.
