The second son to a farmer, Deakin grew up always behind his older brother. His brother and he both trained under the local swordsman until they were 15, then Deakin's father offered his brother the chance to go to Fal Dara and become a warrior there. He accepted without question. Deakin felt left out, but steadfastly practiced the sword, hoping one day to go to Fal Dara himself. Unfortuanatly, Deakin's brother was killed during an expedition into the Blight. Deakin's father was distraught and went to Fal Dara to give his son the Last Embrace. Deakin was shattered, he had competed with his brother, but held him no ill-will. Deakin vowed to honour his brother by becoming a warrior, he shaved his head, leaving only his top-not. He took up his sword and bought passage on a merchant's wagon to Tar Valon, where he is petitioning to have the right to train as a Warder.
