Ashtok is the name of an unknown Phyrexian demon mentioned in the Shattered Chains novel.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Ashtok's main claim to fame is that his name keeps appearing on lists of planes across the Internet. This came from peoples' interpretation of the following passage:

  • "Phyrexia is a plane so distant most wizards don't know it exists, let alone visit there. Many thought it destroyed in the Brother's War. A plane of demons, like Ashtok and others. Yet Phyrexia's demons serve a purpose, a geas leftover from the war."

This could be interpreted as

  • "Phyrexia is A plane of demons, like the plane Ashtok and the others. Yet Phyrexia's demons unlike Ashtokian ones serve a purpose, a geas leftover from the war."

as

  • "Phyrexia is A plane of demons, like the Phyrexian demon Ashtok and the others. Yet Phyrexia's demons unlike non-Phyrexian ones serve a purpose, a geas leftover from the war."

or as

  • "Phyrexia is A plane of demons, like the non-Phyrexian demon Ashtok and the others. Yet Phyrexia's demons unlike Ashtok serve a purpose, a geas leftover from the war."

Following the first interpretation it was put on various people's lists of planes. However, the author of Shattered Chains, Clayton Emery, revealed in an e-mail (from May 25, 2006) that the second interpretation is true and that Ashtok is the name of a further unmentioned demon.
