Illustration Kawano Junko
The Chief of the Elves (エルフの長老, Erufu no Chōrō, Elf Elder) is a minor character in Suikoden. The Chief of the Elves was the isolationist leader of the elven community atop Lukie Ende Towayo.
The Chief of the Elves ruled the elven Village of the Elves. The grandfather of Sylvina, the Chief of the Elves ignored the threat of the Scarlet Moon Empire as he viewed non-elven races as inferior and unthreatening. He mocked those who warned him of Kwanda Rosman's plans to destroy the community with the Burning Mirror and even imprisoned those who tried to warn him such as Kirkis.
The Chief of the Elves was one of the many elves killed when Kwanda Rosman's Burning Mirror destroyed Lukie Ende Towayo. He was succeeded by Kirkis following the Gate Rune War.
- The Chief of the Elves is unusual in that he is one of two characters with official artwork released, but no window portrait. The other one is Grady.
- He shares his Japanese name with the Elven Elder from Suikoden IV.
