You know, I'm starting to wonder if maybe the problem with Asia's casting is that deep down she doesn't believe she has the right to impose her will on the rest of the world that way. I mean, how do you cast a spell if there isn't at least some part of you that believes that you should have a say in the way the world around you works?

@Lunaroki: If that were the case, wouldn't she lack the 'spark' to become a mage in the first place? While her current thought process is majorly timid and non-interfering, some part of her has a very strong desire to cause change as she sees fit. Hizrim is probably using that part to cast her magic.

@ Don Quixotes:

It's entirely possible that she Awoke not due to having a controlling nature, even as a Mastigos. Their themes are both Transgression and Confrontation, after all.

She has the latter ability in spades, given her quiet acceptance of the fact she was likely going to die in Amical's pit, but I haven't seen much of the former. Could be she only awoke to the "understands darkest self, those of others, and accepts them" bit rather than the "taboos what are those" bit.
