However, her wisdom is sometimes misunderstood as the ramblings of an old woman, and some are beginning to lose faith in her.

Isran (4E? b - ?d)
Isran was a Redguard who served as the leader of the Dawnguard in the Fourth Era after re-founding it. Incredibly driven, Isran has worked tirelessly to further his cause, being stubborn enough to ignore those who told him otherwise.
Originally from the town of Helland, Isran was a Vigilant of Stendarr who struck out on his own when he realized the Order was too soft and didn’t really have what it took to defend against the evil in the world. He knew they’d be overrun one day, and he wasn’t going to wait around for it to happen. While he won’t discuss it with anyone, he lost his family to vampires years ago, and it’s warped him. He now hates vampires far more than he cares about saving people and would willingly sacrifice just about anyone if it gave him a clear shot. In his mind, the ends justify the means every time. While never a member of the Vigilants, Sorine Jurard crossed paths with Isran in the past and appreciated his tenacity and survival instincts, and would gladly have worked with him again if necessary had they not parted on such unpleasant terms.
Isran believed, among other things, that hatred granted strength. He reformed the Dawnguard, with himself as its leader, after he spent years renovating Fort Dawnguard in the Rift. He was considered a lone wolf, and had difficulty maintaining amicable working relationships. Nevertheless, he called upon many past allies to help him fight the emerging threat of the Volkihar vampires.
