Elistari Ravencrest is a high ranking Sentinal of the High Forest colony of Low Forest.
Elistari Ravencrest was born only two hundred years before the birth of William Lovie III. and she was thus very young when she met Taerinar Ravencrest, and the two would grow into love quickly as well. Their marriage was followed quickly by their first and to this point only child in Emilian Ravencrest, of whom Elistari attempted to be a good mother too but found herself constantly bad at the role. Elistari joined her husband, father in law, and daughter in fighting in the Journey where she would befriend Ildarion Elessar during their brief meeting with Malfurion Stormrage. Elistari following her friendship with Ildarion would not follow her husband and daughter into Low Forest but instead would join Ildarion in his path southward into Ethring where she would join her Father in Law and a group of Sentinels in assisting him. Elistari after the capture of Larra Torren would be sent into the mountains with a company of Rangers of Gondor where she was to find out if there was truly a pathway, and she has been absent from the story since this quest so what her reaction to Ildarion's death is unknown as of yet.

They will not sit idle after our victories in Cair Andros and Ethring. We need to move quickly if we are to end this conflict. We need to look at this map and force their hand in a single fight. Force them to attack where we want them to.
Following the promising meetings that Tari-Aragorn Elessar II. had with William Lovie III. he truly believed that he was dealing with someone that would be able to be trusted, and in his heart was willing to move forward with both feet in. Aragorn understood that the forces available to him were not going to be enough to take the Orcs on one on one, and when he had discussed the troops that would be available to William in this first battle he knew that they would need more solders and thus he decided to go to his silent ally in High Forest. It had been decades since he had spoken to Malfurion, and almost that long since he`d had any reports about them so for all he knew they could all be completely different from the Elves he had met when he was younger. Either way though he took a small cohort of his Palace Guard alongside his son Tur-Eldarion Elessar of whom had often talked of the mystery of the Elves, and when he walked in on Aragorn talking to Belatar Araglas, Gildor Astirian, and Gandalf about going to see the Elves there was no way that Eldarion was not going with his father. Leaving from Minus Tirith by boat for the north they landed in the port of Tel-Alania where to their surprise they would be met by Tur-Ildarion Elessar of whom arrived wanting to join his father and brother in their time in High Forest. Once everyone was gathered together, they moved quickly by horse for the forest of High Forest and the Elves that other then Aragorn Elessar when he was a young boy none had seen. As they reached the outskirts of the forest Aragorn understood that their arrival would have been detected by the Elves so they waited on the outskirts for many hours before they were finally approached by Shandis Stormrage and a large group of Sentinels.
Talking to Malfurion

The Sentinels under Shandris Stormrage were kind if dismissive to the Gondorians and they discussed matters in High Forest for a time before Gandalf stepped forth and asked for Shandis to speak with Aragorn the King directly. Tari-Aragorn Ellar II. was able to use the connection between he and Malfurion to convince Shandis to get her father so that the two leaders could meet. Shandis would leave and her rangers would remain without much movement, and basically only the Sentinel Huntress Lylandris, who arrived an hour into their meeting with a company of some fifty hunters actually made any conversation with them with the rest in a sort of watchful patrol of the force of Aragorn. During the night before they all went to sleep waiting for Malfurion's arrival Ildarion would spend some time talking to Elistari Ravencrest of whom arrived late in the night with her husband and father in law and the two got along laughing together. The following day Ildarion was awoken by Gandalf of whom told him that the forest was hear, and stepping out of the tent they were all present when Malfurion Stormrage stepped out of the forest and into the camp, and with arrival all the men assembled were shocked outside of Aragorn who had already met the great Druid.
Malfurion was a Druid of the Sindar Elves and thus stood around eight feet tall with large antlers, and a general feeling that gave you both dread, and confidence. Arriving holding the hand of Tyrande Whisperwood he would stop only briefly to kiss Tyrande before moving towards Aragorn and without any words Malfurion bid Aragorn to take a walk for him, and while Ildarion, and Eldarion were against him going alone he dismissed their fears and agreed, but as he walked he watched with silent fear as Malfurion walked into the forest. Aragorn knew he had no choice and thus begin to follow him into the forest when he was stopped once more by Eldarion of whom didn`t want anything to happen to his father. Aragorn assured him that he and Malfurion were friends and that nothing was going to happen. Despite these assurances Ildarion would be taken aside by Elistari Ravencrest and she would take him secretly into the forest to watch what happened with his father. As Aragorn walked into the forest trying to follow the path of Malfurion of whom seemed to move as a ghost through the forest, and when he finally did catch up to him he came into a clearing where he saw Malfurion standing beside a tree but as he got closer he realized he was talking to the tree, and then when he spoke his first word he fell to the ground in fear and surprise when the tree got up and moved in his direction. As he waited for death the tree stopped and picked up Aragorn with its massive limbs and introduced himself as Coeddil the keeper of the grove of the ancients. The three would talk for a time and come to an agreement that High Forest would come to the assistance of Gondor and Lucerne and attempt to relieve the city of Minus Ithil. It was also agreed that following the conflict if the prince of Lucerne seemed worthy then it would be time to re-open relationships with the Lucernians if Gondor, and High Forest wanted to survive.
Elistari following her friendship with Ildarion would not follow her husband and daughter into Low Forest but instead would join Ildarion in his path southward into Ethring where she would join her Father in Law and a group of Sentinels in assisting him.

Taerinar Ravencrest first met Elistari while she was walking the forests of eastern High Forest, and this led to her and Taerinar meeting. There first meetings when very well and they got along better then Taerinar had ever gotten with another Elf and thus he begin to act romantically towards her after only a by a short, Elven period of time towards her. There marriage was a well attended affair for High Forest and even the High Druid himself in Malfurion Stormrage, and his wife and most of the highest levels of government attended the wedding of the oldest child of Kurtalos Ravencrest. Only a decade after their marriage she became pregnant with their first and to this point only child, and Taerinar was extremely enthusiastic about this but Elistari had never seen herself having children. Taerinar and Elistari spent much time fighting the Trollocs together in eastern High Forest, but this came to an end when the arrival of Aragorn Elessar II. in High Forest signaled the alliance between High Forest and Gondor which led Elistari and Taerinar to go with the army being assembled. Fighting together in the Journey the two would begin to split somewhat when during discussions she sided with his father and went with him and Ildarion Elessar instead of going to Low Forest with Taerinar.

Elistari Ravencrest is the daughter in law of Lord Kurtalos Ravencrest and it would through Kurtalos that the two would first meet, and unlike the disiplined nature of Kurtalos she was very carefree which created a sort of friendship between Elistari and the depressed Ildarion. After Gondor gifted the Sindar Elves of High Forest control of much of the southern Forest of Gondor she went south were her father in law, and husband but unlike her husband she accompanied her father in law in his quest to help Ildarion Elessar. Elistari would grow close to Sarah Mason, and would be one of the few people that actually supported Ildarion's love for her despite the rumors. Elistari after the capture of Larra Torren would be sent into the mountains with a company of Rangers of Gondor where she was to find out if there was truly a pathway, and she has been absent from the story since this quest so what her reaction to Ildarion's death is unknown as of yet.
