Ehsan was orphaned at an early age. He snatched food from street vendors, lived in a community slum where everyone older than him was his parent or grandparent (fostering his later strong sense of community), and those younger than him were siblings to be fed and protected. He would snitch food for himself and occasionally others, especially for the oldest 'grandmother' of the 'village', a creaky old woman with a gnarled cane and enough stories to outlive a redwood tree. He was snatched from Mumbai, however, at age five, by the Order of the Seven, a 'religious organization' (that was their front, at least), where he was bound, gagged, thrown in the bottom of a ship along with hundreds of other children, and shipped back to Pennsylvania. He quickly became known as a troublemaker. At first, he was only put into wrist and ankle manacles, which were then chained to the wall of his cell, but as he kept making trouble and biting the guards when they tried to mess with him, he was fitted with a metal collar that also hooked to the wall of his cell. It was around this time that the leader of the Order began to visit him, taking an acute interest in his fiery nature. She began to visit and chat with him regularly, tending to any wounds he would have. It was around this time his first auction rolled around (The Order of the Seven kidnaps and auctions off children of all ages to the highest bidder, and they can be used for general housekeeping, sexual slavery, or anything their master desires) and he pitched a fit. When led into the stage, he threw the plaque containing his information at the glass viewing window, screamed at the buyers gathered, and even bit one of the guards hauling him out. This earned him a flogging, five lashes (he was too weak to have any more). He still has the scars, along with scars on his wrists and ankles from outgrowing his shackles. (He was finally auctioned off at his sixth auction to Wesley Thomas Cartwright, who isn't what you think.)
Favorite color: lime green or royal blue
Favorite person: Wesley Cartwright
"Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"
~Gandalf the Grey, (J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit)
Greatest happiness/hope: Marrying Rose Meyers, becoming a doctor and having children, and visiting Wesley as much as he can.
Greatest fear: Wesley being killed by the Order, water, dry drowning
