Final Fantasy XII does not have any blatant romantic relationships, so really, it is up to you to decided whether Vaan likes Ashe or not. Vaan's confirmation of seeing Rasler was unsettling. Ashe and Vaan try to destroy the Sun-Cryst with the Sword of Kings and Treaty-Blade. Ashe is older than Vaan. People say Vaan isn't the main character because they are making informed observations on what's in the game. Ashe - They bond in a way over Rasler's death, Ashe's dead husband because Vaan and Ashe can both see his ghost while every one else can't, and because Vaan lost his brother Reks at the start of the game so they can relate to each other in that way. As for other characters, an NPC in Rabanastre hints that someone in Vaan's life feels very fondly for him, lending support to the potential for a post-game Penelo/Vaan . Ashe's personality seems like it could only repel men away.

I tried to picture a romantic relationship between Ashe, and some of the male main characters. is the framing that allows the story to be told properly. Basche/Ashe is more of a Master-Servant relationship and it might creep me because Basche is too old (at least his looks) for Ashe. When Ashe was made the Queen of Dalmasca, Vaan was seemingly heartbroken and took to the skies to distance himself from Ashe. Also, Al-Cid, Penelo, and Basch have cameos, and Fran steps on Vaan's foot, again. Well, looking at a lot of evidence, they're siblings.
