The Elders of the Creek, often just the Elders, are a group of teenage boys that hung out in the Creek. They were some of the oldest residents of the Creek and claimed to have been there longer than anyone. They give "great, ancient wisdom," as Craig puts it, in return for tribute.
Their base is a grotto they call Elder Rock; it is reached from a path on the side of the Creek lit by torches. The inside is lit by holiday lights and a lantern. The decor consists of a game table, folding chairs, a beanbag chair, rugs, a small bookcase, and a bin with live-action role-play weapons inside; also seen in the grotto are books, comics, figurines, and various collectibles. They also love anime. They used to be friends with Kenneth before the overpass was built.
As of “In Search of Lore”, the Elders of the Creek have officially broken up, with Mark's callous and selfish behavior as well of his disregard of their past friend Kenneth finally pushing David and Barry to leave the creek for good.
