Jasha Maran is a detective with the New York Police Department who's not exactly human, played by Drew.


Jasha "Ash" Maran never knew his biological father. His mother, Jana, told him that his father, her pack's alpha, had been killed with the rest of the pack by a team of Cipher mage hunters shortly after he had been born.

The only father Jasha remembers is Travis Maran, a human his mother fell in love with and married. Travis was understandably rattled when Jana revealed what she and her child really were, but to his credit, he stayed with them.

Travis, a police officer in Albany, instilled a strong sense of duty and responsibility in his adoptive son, and his mother, who took a job as an editor at the Albany Times Union newspaper, taught him all he needed to know about his people, the Laukos.

Growing up, Jasha had a relatively normal human life with his mother, father, and step-sister Taylor. His mother and he would often escape to the woodlands around Albany to hunt the wildlife in their true forms, while his time with his father was spent doing more normal human activities.

Jasha always knew he'd follow in his father's footsteps, and upon graduating high school, he attended NYU and achieved a Bachelor's degree in criminology. Upon graduating, he attended the New York State Police College, passing with flying colours.

After relocating to Manhattan, he worked his way up the ranks in the 24th precinct until he achieved the title of detective-investigator, a job and title he flourished in, using his Predator senses to crack many cases.

He has used his position within the NYPD to gloss over crimes that he knows as being the work of Predators, doing his part to ensure that they remain a closely guarded secret to the world at large.

Recently, Ash was transfered to the NYPD's Posthuman Task Force, under Lieutenant Giovanni DeMatteo.


Jasha is a reserved individual, known for his otherworldly calm. Intensely private, he rarely speaks about his personal life, and while not short of acquaintances at work, he has very few friends. He is, however, very close to his parents, both of whom are now retired, and still visits the Albany woodlands with his mother every chance he gets.

He has decided to remain out of any Laukos packs, as the politics don't appeal to him.

His tattoos were a result of an intense interest in the religions of the ancient world during his twenties, especially Egyptian mythology. Now, he just thinks they look bad-ass.


As a Laukos, Jasha, even in his human form, has exceptional senses of smell and hearing, and increased strength, agility, and endurance.


Jasha has been recently transferred to the NYPD's Posthuman Task Force, under Lieutenant Giovanni DeMatteo. His step-sister Taylor Maran has also come back into his life after years of estrangement, and they're currently rebuilding their relationship.
