The Eternal Council, rulers of Elf kind
Rulers of the elves of Servitutem
What changed the Elves is unknown, but many centuries ago they did.
Since the beginning the Elves have been led by a council of seven. Never seen or heard, the council interacts with the outside world with the swords and arrows of their armies.
No one knows if the council has remained the same since it’s inception but even for the long lived Elves, the council would have to be truly ancient.
