Gelflings are elf-like beings who populated the fictional world of Jim Henson's 1982 movie The Dark Crystal.

Jen and Kira are the only two known survivors of a massacre perpetrated by the diabolical Skeksis of their race. Gelflings can speak in the languages of animals and upon physical contact with one another share thoughts, memories, and emotions in a process called dreamfasting. Female gelflings can also fly utilizing retractable birdlike wings. Jen and Kira were instrumental in fulfilling the prophecy that restored the crystal to its natural state.
