For other characters named Ascalante, see Ascalante (disambiguation).

Ascalante was an Atlantean who belonged to the Sea-Mountain Tribe, the tribe that adopted Kull as a child. Ascalante was not his original name. He had been taken as a slave by the Valusians when he was young and remained with them for so long that he forgot his true Atlantean name. He became known by the Valusian name Ascalante that his masters had given him. As an adult he escaped slavery and returned to Atlantis, though the circumstances surrounding this are not explained. After his return, the stories he told about the wonders of Valusia helped inspire Kull with a desire to see them for himself.[1]
