E Haiku #atozchallenge

Some guard Rivendell
some bake cookies inside trees
others help Santa

Today we feature the letter E in the  A to Z Blogging Challenge, and another haiku puzzle. What is the science fiction/fantasy word implied by today’s haiku that starts with E? I’ve always found it odd that we use the same word to refer to such very different creatures: the tall and mysterious lords of Rivendell and Lothlorien, the chubby cartoon characters cranking out cookies in commercials, and the people in red-and-green felt wrangling lines of kids in December malls. Know the word I’m thinking of? Tell us in the comments!
