Elders stand eight feet tall with marbled skin. They are built lean and strong with braided hair. They are not natives of Railou. When asked where they arrived from they all say they came from a beautiful peaceful land far away. While first viewed as weak scholars, they proved themselves in the arts of war when Elders formed the resistance and built the armies that would eventual push the Azures out of Railou.
All Elders are trained in a martial art in addition to their scholarly training. They offer aid and shelter to any who seek refuge within their homes. They maintain liaisons in all major cities who offer guidance to the local governments.
