You see in his eyes the wisdom passed down from his eldest ancestors. He travels far and deep into the vast uncharted territories of the old forests. This elusive terrain creates natural boundaries that few men dare to go. The danger of the wild thrives here, and this is where Elk totem animal is most at home, alas he is the majestic nobleman of the forest.
