Born to Meri and Eren Ebram. Raised in Akuum, which lies on the northern side of the River Akuum just north of Katar. Only son and brother to four younger sisters. Erek bears a scar upon his neck, three horizontal lines across the left side, given to him by his now constant companion Misty; a wild dog from the Mountains of Mist. Erek?s mother is an accomplished seamstress, while his father is a trapper/bird handler. As a child Erek followed in his father?s footsteps and learned how to trap animals and is proficent with a bow. Also is very skilled with an axe and the handling of birds. Erek spent his teen years exploring the Mountains of Mist near his home, where he built and maintained several forts. Erek has always been very responsible toward women and learned at an early age that they are to be protected and cherished. Erek never took store in the myths associated with wielders of the one power. Being a strong-minded, independent young man he sought truth for truth's sake and set out for the city of Tar Valon, leaving his family in the care of his older cousins. Erek traveled for almost a year on foot as well as hitching rides from who could spar a few feet of space. He trapped and killed his own food along the way and sometimes stopped for days to cure his meat and sell it for bread, cheese, and other such things. Finally after many miles he arrived in Tar Valon with Misty at his side.
