14. Why did Shashi want to kill baby Ashura?

Shashi betrayed the Ashura clan because she was not satisfied for only being the wife of the Guardian God of War.  Her ambition is to become the Empress of Tenkai, bear the Emperor a son, and later on help her son to become the next Emperor.  She wants power.  She would use her own hands to destroy anything in her way.  Baby Ashura was an obstacle to her, so she wanted to kill the baby.  The manga shows scenes where Shashi puts her hands around baby Ashura's neck and tries to kill it.  But it never explains why she did not succeed killing it.
