Ismaya was taken in by the Vamachara at a young age, when an accident during one of his father's experiments left him as the sole survivor of his family. He had a knack for his father's profession, having spent much time with him, so he was trained to become an alchemist.

When he was of age, he was sent out with other hunters to experience the purpose of the Vamachara first-hand. During this time, he served under an experienced yet idealistic warrior woman, whose taste for nobility and honour was too big for Ismaya. After a few years, this became her demise, as an encounter with the supernatural claimed one of her arms. Having disgraced herself, she left the Vamachara shortly thereafter.

This led to the assignment of an apprentice to Ismaya, letting him lead the excursions for the next year-and-a-half. This new agent, a young girl named Rachany, fitted his taste much better, and they had many successful missions together. However, when Ismaya sold herbal intoxicants to an important client, who died because of his misuse of them, they pulled him back from the field, and stationed him at a desolate location, on the island of Ayuna.

Here, he was to keep an eye on the potential development of supernatural activities in a village known amongst the Vamachara for it's capability of procuring individuals with special powers, while supplying potions and mixtures for the active field agents. He spent many years on this post, watching the families grow, and helping those brave enough to ask with medical emergencies, and some with spirits. Thirteen years passed, until one night an unnatural storm arose from out of nowhere. Much of the village was destroyed that night, and in their frenzy to place blame somewhere, the villagers chased him off the island, forcing him to flee to the Vamachara. Once he was back, he organized the search for the one most likely responsible for the disaster, a young Kedayuh girl named Atreya.

Ismaya led the group's first expedition, but after the death of the young caster Melati, he was relieved of that duty allowing Arugan to step up as the leader for the next assignment.
