Rodrik Hellok is the son of a huntsman and a horse trader. Born on the
edge of Haddon Mirk his father was able to teach him the expert art of woodsmanship and tracking. Rodrik excelled at it and by the age of 12 could track anything with extreme ease and if he did not want to be seen he could move so silently that no one has ever been able to catch him. He also can scramble up trees quietly and quickly which has allowed him to hone his muscles to some degree without giving away his strength. After he had been taught this he focused on riding and horse trading. By the time he was 15 he could ride a horse so well some thought he was born in a saddle. He could judge horse's strength, agility and endurance with a glance. While learning these skills he was forced to work on the pastures herding horses and was given a staff to help in his job. He tied the staff between 2 trees and used it to do chin-ups. He wanted his muscles to be perfect for the day he would leave home. He lifted himself 100 times each day and brought his muscles to bulging perfection.One day he was in Gradne, and he saw a huge commotion in the inn. He decided to check it out and found out that there was a short lady with an ageless face and an Illianer with a cloak that shifted when you were looking at it and walked with the grace of a dangerous lion. He started asking to find out who they were and found that they were an Aes Sedai and her Warder. The way the man moved Rodrik knew that he wanted to become a Warder. The next day he told his parents what he wanted to do and they gave him enough money to make it to Tar Valon. Rodrik knew he probably would never see them again. He took his bow and staff, and hopped on to his black gelding and rode to the North.
