The 1st Elder (Kor. 1장로) is the highest ranking member of the Union. His identity has been one of the biggest enigma in the series so far.
The 1st Elder has medium length blonde hair with a black streak to the top of his head and shaven hair on the side. His overall color motif is is based on variations of primary colors.
The 1st Elder is a man who believes in Humans being on top. He is the Boss of the Union and oversees most of what happens in it. To save himself from the scrutiny of other Elders and possible assassination attempts, he used a proxy to serve his role as 1st Elder and thus fooling all the Elders into believing that the proxy is the true him (except the 3rd Elder whom he trusted and didn't hide his identity from).
He also keeps tabs on things the other Elders assume he does not know as when he told Crombel that he knew of his hidden activities from the beginning including the research for the Blood Stone, his visit of the werewolf territory and the activities of the other Elders as well.
After the death of many Elders, he expressed sadness over the Union being weakened but also happiness for getting rid of the influence of the other Elders as they made Union a sword which could not be wielded at will. He also does not believe in letting the enemy rest.
First Elder used a proxy for the meetings in Union and making others believe that the proxy was the first elder. He kept his identity hidden so as not to draw attention due to the power struggle inside the Union.
PLOT OVERVIEW Edit
In the earlier seasons, 1st Elder never made an appearance or served plot. In the meetings his proxy would act on his behalf and thus fooling other Elders in believing that the proxy was the 1st Elder.
The 1st Elder made his first in-person appearance in a meeting with Crombel and the 3rd Elder. He showed that he knew of Crombel 's hidden activities from the very start but he does not hold a grudge as the data collected privately by Crombel would help Union a lot. Later, when he spoke with the 3rd Elder privately, he said that he plans to create a world with Humans on top as well as say that he plans to use Crombel.
