Nothing is known about Ashwathama's early life apart from dreams about the constellations and a female figure that is assumed to be his mother. Even his age is a mystery. The always serious man has suggested he might be a single "great cycle" old, or three or four, whatever that means.
Ashwathama seems to have wandered most of the world, learning even more languages than Kediak in his travels. He has also gained a reputation as an amazing hunter. He possesses the grace of a cat and the precision of a master.
Ashwathama dreams every night about constellations and a woman who speaks a language he can't understand once he is awake. They annoy Kediak.
Ashwathama behaves as though he has never lived in a village or among a clan; he avoids people and is unable to force others to obey him even with his superior skills. This is not possible, however, as his knowledge of languages and his memories of constellations makes clear that he has spent time among people and learned much of their culture.
