Ishak was a young Bazhir and member of the tribe of the Bloody Hawk. He had a strong gift for fire and because of his gift, the tribe's shaman Akhnan ibn Nazzir says that he along with the two gifted girls, Kara and Kourrem, are cursed. Ishak’s family left him to the care of his grandfather. Halef Seif, the headman, would not allow his tribe to abandon its young members and several tribe members clothe and feed the three children. When Alanna of Trebond joined the tribe and became its new shaman, she adopted the three young people as her students and trained them so they could take over as shamans and learned to control their gift.

Out of the three, he was the most impatient, always wanting to go ahead and do more powerful spells and incantations. He was also arrogant and thought, like most Bazhir men, very little of women and their daily tasks. Of the three, however, he had the most control and mastered the lessons Alanna gave them more quickly. Often, he would become bored, eager to learn more advanced material without learning the patience required for such spells. He would often ask Alanna if he could wield the Crystal sword, arrogantly thinking he could control what she could not. In some ways, Ishtak foreshadowed what would happen to Thom - arrogant in magic, destroying himself.

Then the night after an attack on the village by Hillmen and their shaman, Ishak took the sword from the sleeping Alanna and tried to wield it. When he took it out of the scabbard to shout a spell at Alanna, the shield she had summoned to protect herself reflected the spell back at him. The power consumed him and the scabbard he had thrown aside. Alanna speaks of how the death of Ishak taught her not to dwell on things she could not control, helping her get over her killing of Duke Roger.
