Male (sex changed to female by misfile)
|First Appearance||Page 4|
Ash Upton is the (arguably) male protagonist of Misfile. Born male and misfiled into the female cabinet by a pot-smoking angel called Rumisiel, Ash meets Emily McArthur, and they set out to help Rumisiel get back into Heaven and fix his big mistakes.
Ash's situation plays heavily on his mind throughout the comic, and Emily is generally there to help him get through it, or at the very least, teach Ash how to be a convincing girl.
Ash Upton was born to Edward and Marie Upton one January. When he was three years old, Marie left her family due to Edward's overbearing nature, causing him to take a "If you love something, let it go" nature with parenting his child, which Ash saw as being cold. He once tried to contact his mother with a letter at thirteen, but decided against it.
Ash seems to have been a loner, not having many friends at the time of the comic, aside from James, an older boy who taught him to drive and Harry, a local mechanic. He also managed to gain a rivalry with Tom Fuller.
Relationships with others
Emily McArthur - Ash's best friend and guide in the ways of the female. Ash has admitted to having feelings for her, which she returns, but his situation makes her uncomfortable with being more than friends. Recently, they have been tutoring each other, Ash receiving mathematics help and Emily learning how to race. They try to get more involved romantically as of recent.
Rumisiel - Usually an annoyance in Ash's eyes, but they have been shown to enjoy common interests. Ash still harbours a grudge for Rumisiel turning him into a girl, and also for creating a cover story that they are dating.
Missi Fuller - Tom Fuller's younger sister and Ash's ex-girlfriend, though this is one sided. Missi refuses to accept being dumped and is hanging around Ash until he 'comes around'. However, Ash still considers her a friend.
