In any Gnome community, the elder gnome is considered one of the wisest. He wears an "Elder" cap, which is usually a deep berry color and is often called upon to decide contests, mediate between disagreeing parties, or make decisions that no other gnome wishes to make.
The Elder Gnome seeks the counsel of the oldest female gnomes during nightly fireside visits as it is believed that a female's judgment is even-tempered and fair.
An Elder does enjoy certain benefits in the community. He is left to sleep a bit later and is excused from most menial labor. He often fills a special role during celebrations and rites of passage, where he acts as the master of ceremonies.
Aerin is the "Elder" within the Enchanted Garden community. He is a very good listener and he truly cares to see harmony and peace prevail.
Aerin is a perfect addition your whimsical decor, use him to decorate a fireplace mantle, hide him among your indoor plants or on top of a windowsill so that they can watch over your home (Gnomes are very protective of their families!)
