"In two hundred years the white man has not changed."
The Issaquah Elder is one of the leaders of the Issaquah Nation, with only the chief being his equal. A wise man, he is one of the only people to know of the Prophecy of Four's existence, and the only one alive to know it in it's entirety.
The son of the previous Elder, he was taught the White Man's Tongue (English) and the history of the Issaquah by his father, who learned the same from his father, and so on and so forth. Through this education, he became very wise and knowledgeable in his old age. It is likely that the words of the Prophecy of Four were passed from elder to elder up until the present, until it comes to pass.
