I absolutely love to see Tanner as an elder. He reminds me of Voll - just so slightly. His costume, the colors and adornements - it almost proves his "profession" ... and you show him working his leathers
It's great to have a chief who is not an outstanding hunter or warrior - or magic user - ... but have a common, seemingly boring skill. And when you think about it it becomes clear that his discovery and talent was so very important for the evles!
