Please help me come up with a decent name for a group of four fictional characters who have power over the classic elements in an equally fictional world.

I'm writing a story where a woman from here and now stumbles into a world that relies on four individuals holding power over earth, fire, air and water. These people (if it makes a difference) end up being unwilling celebrities and are at risk of assasination to pass the power along. They are on a pedestal of sorts.
The only name I can think of for these four people is 'elementals' but that sounds so corny.
Can you lovely people come up with something better, please?
