The name “Yeleni” is derived from Slavic languages and signifies simply “deer”. This graceful creature dwells in the oldest parts of the ancient forest of Lesmira – a realm of enchanted forest I am currently creating- and was one of the very first it’s inhabitants.
His gentle spirit will guide you through uncertain paths and evoke a sense of tranquility in the most challenging of situations. The little berries which grow on his majestic antlers have a power to enhance the intuition and entwine you with the rhythm of the nature.

In the oldest parts of Lesmira he dwells
This graceful creature of Spirit’s World
He is the keeper of forgotten spells
And legends by the wind only told
His spirit so gentle like the misty breeze
Brings nothing but peace to unsettled soul
His calming touch will put you at ease
All broken pieces now are the whole
Eyes which beyond the darkness see
On his antlers hope of the future grows
The last guardian of ancient berry tree
The only one who song of power knows
