Clan Telvarsir, translated into Elves(Tel) From(Var) (the) Valley(Sir) in Common are a collection of wood elves tribes native to Deepvale Forest that are bound under a pact known as The Gilvarsir by an equal pair, a patriarch and a matriarch. The "capital" of the clan is Nirvar Kir, it is the largest communal ground, surrounding the Tree Spire.
The clan is made up of related tribes, all native to Deepvale. Each of the 80 tribes governs themselves and their territory while being represented by an elected couple in the Sanha'nardils who also serve as court for solving tribal disputes or disagreements.
The elves of Telvarsir are deeply rooted in tradition, and their entire culture is revolves around safeguarding and preservation of the existing forest that they believe has been entrusted to their care by the Selnar'rin themselves.
Inside their forest, they co-operate on magnificent structures of Vitnirv and complicated ancient spells and rituals that may take centuries to cast. Their craftsmanship of armor is unmatched even by the dwarves, although they would never bestow upon an outsider such an impressive boon.
Most tribes of the Clan are generally not very interested or concerned with the events happening outside of their forest's borders. Even during cataclysmic events, such as the Battle of the Second Sun the clan remained an enigma to outsiders, although relations with human cultures around them worsen noticeably since.
The clan has a long history and even richer lore. The lore masters of the Telvarsir tell that when the Selnar'rin descended into Edora the planted a tree and entrusted a select few to safeguard it at all cost. The guardians became a tribe, and then several. When they where so numerous they stared drifting apart the Selnar'rin invited them to send their most trusted representatives to the Tree Spire, one male and one female, who are bonded.
All representatives singed the agreement known as the Pact of the Vale and became the first Sanha'nardils, forever binding themselves and the tribes to the forest. The sanha'nardils elected a couple from among themsleves, the most wise and learned, to act as guide and as a reminder to their duty to be the gardeners and architects of the natural beauty and awe on this world.
The clan controls the entirety of Deepvale Forest and its tribes are scattered throughout, each maintains and care for their own territory, that could stretch for up to a hundred square miles.
Telvarsir rarely tolerate intruders into their lands, even elves of different clans tread carefully while inside their sanctuary. The clan is considered reclusive, even among other elves, and make almost no contact with the outside world unless the matter involve the safety of the forest or the tribes.
