Back to Joshua Levi

Joshua's second child, born just weeks after Joshua successfully completed his Gauntlet trial and only a few months before the family chose to depart the Holy Land for the distant British Islands. As such he has no memories of the place or the voyage, though Ruth credits it for some of his wandering curiosity and sense of protectiveness over both his older sister and younger brother. A natural learner and teacher, the young Issac loves little more than reading about new things and telling everyone else about them.
