Ishan Merana is a son of a blacksmith. Since little he had been make fun of because of his height and small body built, and his legs is a trifle smaller than normal. One day when he was 10, he was running an errand for his mother when he decided to take a shortcut. In one of the alley he found several kids bigger than him sitting there. One of the boy noticed him and said " Hey look, it's the dwarf.". The others looked and laugh. Ishan tried to ignore them and keep on walking. One of the boy stepped in front of him. Ishan said to him " Can you move please, I need to go." The boy just looked at him. Ishan was going to say something else when somebody bumped into him. Then they all started pushing him around. The boy that was blocking him said " This dwarf said, he wanted to pass. Why don't you just walk between my legs your 'tall' enough for that." They laughed and Ishan jumped at the boy. Then they started beating him up. After that incident he swore to himself that he was going to get stronger.

Ishan saw the Warders and admired them. Finnaly he took leave and ask blesings from his parents and head out for Tar Valon...
