Universal Elven Society bio:
It’s time for the Elves of the World to have a voice. The Universal Elven Society is seeking Elves from the Five Elemental Regions for membership: Mountain, Ocean, Plains, Desert, Forest.
The Universal Elven Society is a movement of Modern Day Elves, no longer hiding ourselves from behind shadows of man-made doctrines of Elven folklore but openly expressing ourselves in the era we live in. Holding onto Elven revelations that were before the beginning, and letting our light shine is the best way to help others to also express their inner Elven selves.
