Elder felt dead for a long while, but he's getting more in touch with himself and the world around him again.
He found his family from being driven away from the place he had sworn and failed to take care of after decades of living there. Now, he's trying to protect new people he's come to care about -- Ignias and Seraphina -- without letting his anxieties make him take things too far with protecting them.
Odalia is an old friend of his.
Elder is a large and imposing Deer person with many, many scars and discolored patches of fur. His eyes are dark. He's also come to see the charm in wearing khakis and flannel dress shirts.
Elder can regenerate instantaneously.
