The Sisterhood of Elune (aka the Sisters of Elune or simply the Sisters) are the oldest night elf religious and magical order, predating the quel'dorei by some 2000 years. As the name implies, they are an order of priestesses dedicated to the worship of the moon goddess, Elune — priestesses of Elune. The Sisterhood is led by the high priestess of Elune.
The headquarters of the Sisterhood was originally the Temple of Elune in the city of Suramar, but the Sisters staffed temples and chapterhouses the length and breadth of Kalimdor. The temple was lost when Suramar was overrun by the nathrezim, but the Sisterhood, under the leadership of high priestess Dejahna, escaped and flocked to the banner of Lord Ravencrest. A few weeks after the abandoning of Suramar, Tyrande Whisperwind was made high priestess following the death of her predecessor at the hands of Hakkar the Houndmaster.
The Sisterhood continued to fight in the War of the Ancients after Tyrande's capture by Xavius —under the leadership of first Marinda and then Maiev Shadowsong. Following the conclusion of the war and the creation of Nordrassil, the Sisterhood continued in a less formal role (many of the Sisters became Sentinels), particularly during the Long Vigil. Now that Archimonde has been defeated and the night elves are free from the Long Vigil, Tyrande leads a much more formal and religious Sisterhood of Elune from the Temple of the Moon in Darnassus.
The Sisters are the major active night elf political faction, and fulfill the roles of magistrates, officials, and the like for the night elf government. The highest-ranking of the Sisters are privy to the government's most major secrets, such as the condition of Malfurion Stormrage and the power struggle that has erupted between Tyrande and Fandral Staghelm.
The Sisterhood of Elune is the highest echelon of the priesthood that serves the goddess of the moon, Elune. The Sisterhood is exclusively female. This is largely because of a common belief that the deepest mysteries of Elune can only be comprehended by women. Although a vast majority of Elune's priests are still night elf women, the order now welcomes men and priests of other races into its ranks.
