FAERIE, FAE AND OTHERKIN TRIBES:The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind and Kin by The Silver Elves is dedicated to tribes of the faeries, fae that are faerie blends, otherkin, otherworldlies, and miscellaneous assorted fae, but we have also created a companion book that has the elven tribes in it. So if you are of elven kind, you may wish to also check out ELF TRIBES: The Silver Elves’ Guide for Finding Your Magical Kind, Kin and Tribe.

In these modern times we now abide, it is most important that the faerie, fae and otherkin have a strong magical narrative of their own in a world that often likes to tell us who we are and who we are not, and mostly quite inaccurately so. It is our hope that in reading the magical narratives contained in Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes that you will be inspired, our kindred brothers and sisters, to begin if you have not already done so to create your own narrative or add to what you already remember and intuit.

Over the last 30 years or so, we Silver Elves have given out over 6,000 elf names in our magical language Arvyndase to individuals who requested them. For years, many of the individuals who requested an elf name would also write to us and say that they felt that they were elven but didn’t know any more about their elven or fae tribe. And for years, we told them that they should trust their imaginations and intuitions and while that is still very good advice, we realized in time that this was not any easy thing to do for many of these kindred of ours who were often newly awakened and needed a bit of guidance upon the path. In response to this, we created the Elf, Faerie, Otherkin Survey on our website, as a means of eliciting the information that we needed from these individuals so we might create a narrative for them about their own magical tribe or clan of Elves, Fae or Others that was germane to them and as close as we could get based upon their responses and our own intuition. Note: we have also added the Elf, Faerie, Otherkin Survey to our blogsite, so you may also go here to find the directions for taking this quiz and receiving your magical narrative.

The over 150 magical narratives we created and that compose Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes are based upon the memories or intuitions and thus the responses we were given to the survey about those of faerie, fae and otherkin nature. We would like to thank all those who participated in this survey and we truly loved their creative responses. Of course, we used our own imagination and intuition in putting their replies into a consistent whole, which was often a challenge but a challenge we very much enjoyed. This book, as well as Elf Tribes, contain only the narratives we have written for people filling out this questionnaire and no personal names are associated with them in the publication. In fact, we do not keep people’s names, so your questionnaire is completely confidential.

The book is divided into two main sections, the first section being tribes of faerie and of fae that are faerie blends; and the second section being tribes of a variety of otherkin, otherworldlies, and various assorted other fae. In putting the tribes and clans in categories, we choose to use preferred locales and environments indicated by the faerie and faerie blends. However, the second part of this book featuring otherkin, otherworldlies and various assorted other fae, just had too many diverse types (over 25) to categorize them by environment, and so we divided these by basic kin type, for example: Devas (Angels), Valkyries, Shining Ones and similar types together, or Dragons, Brownies, Pixies, or Shapeshifters, each in their own categories. Even then, there are many mixed peoples both for the fae and for otherkin of the various types. We did our best to choose the most prominent feature of their being to assign them to a particular chapter.

You will find as you read through the many narratives in this book that the faerie, fae and otherkin are varied in their magic, healing abilities, uses of stones and crystals and herbs for healing, art, lifestyle, ancient ways, governance, love of nature, relationship to mankind, preferences, symbols, and overall skills.

Sample Narratives from Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes:
Here for you to enjoy reading are a few examples from the 150+ kin type narratives found in Faerie, Fae and Otherkin Tribes.

Excerpts from Section 1: Tribes of the Faeries and Fae that are Faerie Blends

From Chapter 1:

     The Loråleyndre (pronounced lore – ah – lee – in – dree) faeries of the Edornae (E – door – nae) tribe are healers and herbalists who practice the elven witching arts in the high mountains. Sometimes, people may hear their music echoing down the hillsides, but because of these echoes, one can never tell exactly where exactly the music is coming from. This fills one with a sense of mystery and awe and magic. Strange music coming at one from every direction through the mountain mists. It is hard not to be awed and inspired.

Theirs is a democratic society. They elect individuals to discuss whatever the current issues may be and work out a solution or a number of alternatives that they present to their people who then decide on what is best to be done. They are a very pleasant and happy people so there is little argument among them. Doing what will bring everyone happiness as much as possible seems to them to be the wisest and most healing course to pursue in every situation. Thus, their relationship with normal folk in the world of Man is also one of endeavoring to help, heal and enlighten as best that they are able.

Curiously, besides their work as healers and herbalists, and whatever day to day magics may demand their attention, these folk are Master fencers. Some say they are the greatest swords-elves in the world. It is surely true that they are like dancers with a rapier, moving so swiftly and elegantly that they can cut a button off someone’s shirt without touching the rest of the material or the individual noticing anything but what feels like a mild breeze as the fencer passes by. It is said that they practice daily. Often in large groups like they were doing Tai Chi only with fencing foils.

Spiritually, they tend to be animists. Seeing the Divine Magic as it manifests in all things, particularly as it manifests in Nature. They know that they are ever surrounded by the spirits of the Earth, and particularly in the mountains they feel the primal energy of the crystal and rock spirits, the ancient trolls, giants and other beings that compose the mountains.

They also seem to have a love of trinkets, charm bracelets and even knick-knacks, which they energize with magic. Their homes are filled with these, and they also wear some of them around. These items, once they’ve been energized, become like magical batteries; therefore, the Edornae always have extra magic, if needed, all about them or on their person if traveling. It is said that their very being and certainly their realm hums and vibrates with the power of these trinkets.

_____________________________________

The Obaryn (pronounced oh – bare – ren) fae of the Morwynfe (more – win – fee) tribe are faerie folk of dragon lineage. At some point in the past, their ancestors, or some of them at least, were dragon folk who found the world inhospitable to their kin and decided to manifest in more humanoid form and in doing so began relationships with faerie folk. This is not an uncommon problem for beings who existed in the second age who are now seen primarily as mythological. Surely unicorns, satyrs, centaurs and others have faced the same issue due to the intransigence and prejudice of many of mankind who not only viewed some of them as a danger but hunted others just for sport. This supposed sport still occurs today with people hunting elephants, giraffes and other beings just for a trophy or the “thrill” of killing a creature at a distance using a high-powered rifle. A very curious behavior from an elfae point of view.

These fae generally live in the wooded mountains, a reminder, we suppose, of their dragon heritage. They are good folk who apply their magical talents mostly to healing and divination and herbal witchery, casting spells to help and enlighten mankind in general and more particularly those they may encounter. Many a hiker has unknowingly come upon them to leave the wilderness feeling refreshed, revived and filled with life energy.

They have a tribal democracy, voting on everything that is important to them and all that which concerns the general welfare. At the same time, personal rights and minority opinions are both protected and valued, for these are a very creative folk, well, most fae are, and know that eccentricity is often a key to creativity and innovation.

Living their lives as lovingly as possible, they know that they are treading the path that the Divine Magic, which permeates all things, reveals to them in their hearts, and is guiding them toward ever greater fulfillment of their individual and collective beings. They are becoming Shining Ones, radiating light everywhere they go and in everything that they do.

They don’t have a flag or banner for their people, however, they each carry a stone, usually of garnet that has been enchanted with power and which links them all together, so that even if they should find thems’elves alone in the world, they can call on the power of all their people through the evocation of the stone. They say that each of the stones is the One Stone, which is to say that mystically there is only one stone that is manifesting as many stones, which also accords with their view of the universe and creation. The stone that each one carries is therefore The One Stone that is Many.

 

From Chapter 8:

The Forest Faeries

The Nironyn (pronounced nigh – row – nin) fae of the Karyndere (care – ren – dear – re) tribe are faeries who prefer to live in the deep rain forests. According to their own myths, they were created by Unicorns. Two unicorns were frolicking under cherry blossom trees and the mystical radiance of their love turned the flowers into faeries. Thus, the Karyndere feel very close to unicorns and quite a few of them wear unicorn horns on their heads as a sort of magical, mystical style and fashion statement. Plus, some say that they can shapeshift into unicorns or that they are unicorns who shapeshifted into faerie form as the world became rather hostile to their existence (see Lord Dunsany’s The King of Elfland’s Daughter).

As far as anyone can tell, they don’t seem to have any recognizable form of government. They are, however, very family oriented and all decisions both large and small are made by the family unit keeping the needs of all its members in mind when doing so. In fact, they don’t call their tribe a tribe or a clan, at all, but a family.

They are avid herbalists and healers and, in their way, very excellent gardeners. Although, the gardens they nurture are the plants of the great rain forests and not gardens as one might find behind a suburban home or even outside a country cottage. They nurture, nourish and propagate the mystical and magical healing plants of the forest, letting them grow more or less wild, with their assistance.

These folks are the stewards of a magical treasure called the Crystal Staff. It is, actually, a magic wand of sorts, made of crystal that they say formed from a petrified unicorn horn. Whatever it touches, grows abundantly. If they insert it into the soil, the area around becomes fertile and rich. If they touch a plant or a tree with it, it will grow to an enormous size, blossom for ages, and live much longer than others of its kind tend to do. It can even be used to revive a sickly or frail child. This wand is passed from family to family, each taking care of it for a time and, thus each helping a particular region of the forest to grow and prosper.

They don’t have a flag or a banner, being as it is in the rainforest where such things would just be like a billboard in the midst of a beautiful landscape, but these fae have developed a black rose, which doesn’t otherwise exist in nature, and which grows up around the walls of their homes, and this denotes their people in the same way a flag or symbol might.

You might presume that these are rather sedate fae, and surely, they can be so at times, but they also listen to the faerie equivalent of heavy metal music and dance away the night until the sun’s light begins to filter through the treetops, spinning round and round the faerie circle in wild delight.

Excerpts from Section 2:

Here is an example of one of the merfolk from Chapter 19:

Selkie and Merfolk

The Marynfele (pronounced mare – ren – fee – lee) fae of the Casånatha (cass – sah – nah – thah) family are mer-persons of a selkie variety, which is to say that like selkies they live both in the sea as merfolk and upon the sea coast at times in humanoid fae form. However, instead of shapeshifting into seal form as selkies tend to do, these merfolk change into a sort of unicorn dolphin, although most folk that happen to see them in this appearance soon convince thems’elves that what they saw was a swordfish. But then, that is part of the glamor that has been cast upon normal folk in order to protect the fae of various sorts from having men hunt them down as they did to the land unicorns ages ago until they were extinct in that form.

The Marynfele have a Queen whom they view as a Goddess of the Sea and a wife and consort to Manannán mac Lir, the Celtic sea lord. They sometimes refer to her as the Lady of the Waters or sometimes She Who Flows. She has the power to heal any of their kind once they are in Uni-dolphin form, which is to say, once they are in the sea.

Unlike Selkies, who shed their sealskins and become humanoid, the Marynfele merely move in and out of the sea and this causes their transformation. To take a swim in saltwater initiates this change to mer life, while having the sea dry from them, shifts them in the other direction. This is both convenient and inconvenient for them. Unlike selkies there is no shed skin or pelt that can be stolen to imprison them on land. On the other hand, they can’t go swimming at the beach with normal folk. But then, they prefer to avoid the normal folk, anyway.

Their horn, however, does fall off when they come to the land, although unlike sealskins, it can’t be used to control them, and it usually dries and shirks in the sun, so that it appears to be a unicorn horn-like sea shell. If you have one of these, you could, as popular lore suggests, put it to your ear and hear the sea waves. But more importantly, if you whisper into it, the Marynfele will hear you. Well, not exactly hear you, but feel your call and gravitate in your direction.

While on land, they honor the four sacred magical treasures of the Tuathe de Danaan, but in the sea they have their own magical treasure, which is the Treasure Chest of the Ocean. In it is contained every precious and valuable thing that has ever fallen or been lost or thrown into the ocean, and this they can take from in order to support thems’elves on land. Thus, in reality, they are very wealthy folk for the sea is rich in treasures and they collect them all.

 

Here is example of two of the 15 dragon tribes in the book:

From Chapter 21:

Dragons

The Ymbotae (pronounced M – bow – tay) folk of the Forlåfyn (for – lah – fin) tribe are inter-dimensional dragon people who live throughout various galaxies, but the Ymbotae particularly came to Earth ages ago and settled here upon the plains and savannas of the African continent. However, when we say settled we don’t mean to indicate that they set down roots in one place and stayed there, for they are travelers, nomads who wander here and there across the plains and back again in a seemingly never-ending peregrination. (Check out the 1986 movie Nomads starring Pierce Brosnan.)

In some ways, they are related to the lizard folk, being dragons that so occupy the paranoid conspiracy theories of those who think the lizard people seek to take over the world. They are distantly related to those folks, who do seek to control the world, however, the Ymbotae have ever sought to help and enlighten mankind when, in fact, they bother to interact with them, which is really not much. Mostly, they pursue their own interests, which are mainly of an esoteric and exoteric academic vein. They seek knowledge and spend most of their time studying Nature, the stars and everything else they encounter or whatever interests them. How long they will stay upon the Earth is not known, but since mankind seems determined to destroy it, it is quite possible they will migrate elsewhere in the next hundred years.

In appearance, in order to fit in here, they appear to be just another ancient African tribal group. However, there is a certain spotted-ness to their skin that reminds one of the spots on leopards but is really an effect of their dragon scales showing through. So, some folks refer to them as the leopard people. But their totem, in fact, is not the leopard but the African golden wolf. If they had a banner, which they do not, it would probably bear its image. As it is, they have these beings as companions, as some folks have dogs or cats, and also have small statues of them that they carry from place to place and sometimes erect and leave on the trail behind them as a sort of signpost for others of their kind.

They have no rulers, being in their minds each independent and powerful beings, each a great dragon, but organize thems’elves and make decisions via consensus. Those who don’t agree are free to travel elsewhere for a while, if they choose, which is, in part, why they erect those statues behind them so they can always find each other if they need or desire to do so. The way the wolf is facing is the direction they have gone.

The fact that they live by consensus is also why they are not part of a conspiracy to take over the world, but they believe in freedom, particularly the freedom to pursue one’s own creative and intellectual pursuits nearly above all things.

 

     The Karåvor (pronounced care – rah – vour) dragons of the Hyndaryth (hen – dare – rith) tribe used their spells to shift into vampires once the dragon form became too difficult to maintain on this planet. They actually think of thems’elves as a sort of phoenix dragon since they utilized a process of internal combustion and magic to render their dragon bodies down to ashes and rise again in fae vampire form.

These folks, like many dragon-kind, tend to be loners for the most part, and yet they have a Queen who they elect from among their people to organize and guide their society overall. They sometimes refer to her as the River Queen, both because she is/was a water dragon, as most of them in this tribe are, but also because these folk tend to live along rivers from the mountains down to the ocean. Some call her the Shining Water.

One might think that these folk are Unseelie Fae, but that is not actually the case. They are dedicated healers and cast spells and use witchcraft to help and uplift mankind and the world, despite the fact that man drove them to near extinction. Which, you might agree, is a very enlightened outlook, all things considered. And yet, they are very reticent and shy of normal folk and only reveal their true natures to those whom they perceive are open minded enough to accept them.

Most of them don’t drink blood. They don’t need to do so. They absorb energy from the environment around them, of which there is plenty, just as man breathes oxygen created through a symbiotic relationship with the trees. They particularly use osmosis to obtain energy from the rivers and the ocean. The constant motion of the water creates free energy and can easily be obtained by those who know what they are doing. As the Hyndaryth say, you don’t need to force what is given freely.

They don’t have a flag or banner to represent them, but most of them wear an amulet, talisman or necklace that has a dragon on it. Some few, wear a phoenix amulet, but they are related to another clan. Some, with a modern artistic flair, wear dragon amulets that are more impressionistic than realistic in form. Rather like looking at a cloud that appears to be a dragon.

They don’t have a common religious doctrine that they follow, but they do believe in a race of powerful beings who are essentially god-like and who have tremendous abilities, especially the power to shift and shape the Universe. They see these as sort of the distant managers of Nature’s Magic who have little to do with the day-to-day goings on here or any other particular planet, although they could if they so desired. Mostly, they go about their own business, which is what these dragon folk do as well.

 

From Chapter 24:

An example of one of the shifter tribes in this book:

Shifters

     The Piniarve (pronounced pie – nigh – air – vee) fae of the Varikofyn (vair – rye – co -fin) tribe are shapeshifters or Skin Changers as they tend to call thems’elves. They originally came to Earth from other constellations ages ago as lizard or reptilian people but found by the time of the Lemurian civilization that their reptilian form did not give them quite the acceptance they were looking for and needed at that time. Thus, they shed their skins and became rather like those around them. Thus, these elfae others can and have manifested as elves, faeries, werewolves and in many other forms and have family relationships with a variety of otherkin. While they are not related to everyone, they have vast family connections and can quite easily call most elfae kinds their cousins. These days, of course, they mostly manifest in humanoid forms.

This wide variety of forms also applies to their living habits. While they will travel some, they are mostly not constant travelers but none-the-less are to be found in the mountains, in the forests, the deserts, living near and on the sea and almost any place upon the Earth, although wherever they are, they do like to be near water.

Their society is based upon consensus decision making and they, as a group, get along very well. They practice many forms of magic, but healing and herbology is prominent among them. Their relationship to Mankind and the normal world is basically positive in a cautious sort of way. Their idea of getting revenge upon Mankind for all they have suffered at their hands is subjecting Men to reality, the facts, and the methods and modes of sudden enlightenment. The Varikofyn love the look of wonder, surprise and awe upon Men’s faces when they realize there is much more to the world than they ever allowed themselves to imagine.

The Piniarve often wear tattoos. The images of black panthers, bees, owls, and sometimes even drums are popular among them. They also practice scarification so sometimes these images have been carved upon their skin, or appear to be, for being Skin Changers they can make tattoos appear or disappear at will.

They also will wear fur, but only that which has been obtained from some animal that was ‘road kill.’ As they clean the pelt from the dead body, they evoke spells of guidance to help the creature move successfully to a new and better life. Thus, in their minds, wearing fur is a way of honoring the animals whose fur they have inherited. Also, they believe that they wouldn’t have come across the animal if the Divine hadn’t meant them to help its spirit onward to a new life. The fur they take is, to their minds, like the coins that were given to the boatman to ferry (faery) souls across the river Stix into the underworld in ancient myths.

While they don’t believe in gods in a dogmatic religious way, they do see the myths of gods and goddesses as practical tools for educating children about the values and principles of life. They are essentially animists as a group and see life and the Divine manifested in all things. Everything has a spirit. Everything is a person of some sort or other, or if they are like the Piniarve, of many sorts.

As a people the Piniarve greatly value the healing arts used wisely. And they are, for the most part, a very healthy folk for being able to alter one’s body at will also means one is able to heal at will, as well. If they get sick, they simple transform to a healthier form.

But they are also a very romantic people. They have great stories of love and romance, usually between different types of people such as a dark elf and a light faerie, or a dwarf and a centaur and so forth, where social barriers often stand in the way of their union but their love overcomes all obstacles.

 

An example of an otherworldly from Chapter 25:

Valkyries, Devas, the Shining Ones, Deity Kin, and the Vanir

The Karyldarva (pronounced care – rill – dare – vah) fae of the Tomaåbatha (toe – may – ah – bay thah) Order are initiate Shining Ones in training (as Shining Ones always are) sent to Earth to promote healing, tolerance and to stifle as much as possible the urge toward war as a means of conflict resolution and material advancement, which seems so popular on Earth. They are not allowed to directly interfere with those who are oriented to such activities, but they have the power to heal those who come to them for help and healing the physical body is often a spiritual healing one as well.

The Tomaåbatha, like all Shining Ones, no longer have individual tribes but have vowed to join with others of their Order to fulfill the work of healing as revealed to them by the most advanced members of their kind who speak to them through dreams. Each morning they get up and share their dreams with each other and thus determine the direction they will proceed in for the day and the tasks that need to be fulfilled.

This Dream Sharing also constitutes their social structure and their government. All decisions are made in the light of their dreaming. Thus, they are sometimes referred to as the Dream Weavers and other times the Dream Healers, for they can also enter into other people’s dreams to heal their etheric bodies and their bodies of light in a shamanic fashion.

Upon the Earth, they like to have the centers for their Order in treehouses upon the edge of the forest. Here they can retreat and renew thems’elves if needed, but it also allows them easy access to nearby towns so they may conduct their healing work, which is their principle specialty as Shining Ones. Rather like doctors, Shining Ones often have specialized areas of expertise, although also like doctors, they get a general education as well. Of course, not all Shining Ones are healers, some are here to set things straight in a more radical fashion. We might think of them as surgeons.

The Karyldarva have a crest for their society, which shows two black unicorns rearing up with a golden dragon sitting between them. Above them is an infinity symbol with a heart interwoven through it. Beneath them are the words: Healing is Eternal, written in Angelic Script by an arrangement of daisies upon a vine. All this on a white background. The golden dragon symbolizes both knowledge and power but the unicorns on either side denote the need to limit power and use it well. The fact that the unicorns are black suggests that while they symbolize innocence, they are not naive.

While, as we say, this is their crest, you will usually only see it if you visit one of their healing centers and sanctuaries. For their own part, when they are out in the world pursuing the work of the order, individual practitioners often visualize this crest and, in doing so, are connected to the center of the order and may heal and renew thems’elves thereby.

While these Shining Ones will use their own dream healing to help people, they also learn and use other modes of healing such as Reiki, Qigong and various herbal remedies. In fact, you might say that they study every form of healing and medical practice there is upon the Earth and among the stars, and some of them will even study traditional medicine, although alternative methodologies and non-invasive procedures are greatly preferred. They know that the true source of healing is in the realms of the spirit.

Thus, first they heal the spirit, and from that the mind, the emotions and so forth. And yet, it is true as well that some folks are so clogged, you might say, that you have to start with their physical forms to even begin to touch and affect their spirits. Still, the Universe is a connected whole and each part is linked to every other.

Being a practical people, their devotion is to healing and they don’t really care where they have to start to bring about greater wellness, yet they are well aware that the spiritual realm is the true realm and thus affecting it as directly as possible is ever their goal. Otherwise, everything just takes longer to heal.

 

And from the many dwarf tribes we share one from Chapter 26:

Dwarves

     The Garynvar (pronounced gayr – ren – vair) dwarves of the Valyndor (vay – lynn – door) tribe are very unusually dwarven folk, very advanced in their spirituality and their view of life. They live in the mountains, as dwarves are prone to do, often in caves, and usually near waterfalls or underground waterways, which is all very dwarven but, unlike most dwarven folk, they don’t believe in mining the Earth. Rather, they are of the opinion that crystals, jewels and gems should be left right where they are, to live their own energetic and vibrational lives in peace and without interference. To these dwarves, digging up a crystal is like stealing a child from its family.

This is not to say that they don’t appreciate crystals and gems, in fact, their caves often have such gems glowing from the walls, it is just that they leave them to be, communicate with them through their magic, use them for healing and shamanism without removing them from, what these dwarves view as, the crystals’ home. In their opinion, everyone should be left alone to pursue their own lives as best they may and this includes the rock folk, who are, after all, related to trolls.

Thus, it should be no surprise that their society is basically one of mutual agreement and association. They don’t have a government of any sort; they just hang out together because of shared beliefs and a commonly held outlook about the essentials of life and the best way to live it and approach it. While their view of Mankind is basically benevolent, and their attitude toward all others is for the most part a will to help and heal, they are a reticent folk and the majority of them keep to themselves, away from others, and mind their own business, which they feel would be a good policy for all folk in the world to follow.

They don’t have a flag, rather they feel their shared unity very strongly and are of a mind that no flag or banner is a substitute for their genuine love of each other and their determination to be together as a people. They do, however, have four magical objects that they consider to be representative of their magic.

The first is an owl feather, that they call the Feather of Prophecy. They say that if one is lost and lets an owl feather fall to the ground it will point in the direction one should go.

The second is the Pebble of Time, which represents the refinement of an individual’s spirit through time and experience. Each of these folk carry such a pebble, which they use to ground and stabilize themselves when they are feeling confused or very emotional.

The third is the Candle of Possibilities. A candle can be used to guide one through the darkness, but unlit it bears the possibility of encountering the unknown and revealing its nature, thus this candle indicates that science and exploration are a key to discovery. At the same time, it is their version of the expression ‘Expect the Unexpected’ and would also be associated with the concept of Occam’s Razor that cautions one against making too many assumptions upon too little data.

And the fourth and final magical object is the Sigil of Connection. If they had a flag or banner, this dwarven rune symbol could be it, however, none but they know which rune it is. Perhaps, it is the runes overall. What is known is that they use these sigils in communication with the spirits to seek their help and guidance and nearly every dwarf of this tribe carries a pouch of these rune sigils.

“If you wish to know of the fae,
think of aboriginal peoples around the world
in their most spiritual and magical manifestation.
Beat the drum and dance.
Shake your rattle and chant.
Elfin is all about us. Look and see.
Can you see the ancient fires burning?”
—The Silver Elves
