Altariel Artanis has been the Lady of the Wood for many generations of elves. The seasons have only seemed to make her taller, more radiant, and wiser. Her crown of golden hair makes her the natural companion to the tall trees with their golden canopies. The Golden Wood has enjoyed many years of enduring peace, girdled by her protective magics that remain so subtle that they seem to be no more than the songs of the birds, the trilling of the beetles in noonday warmth, or even the burbling of the clear brooks. However, all can sense the seriousness of her endeavors, and the focus with which she approaches tomorrow.
