General Description

The leader of the elven gods, Corellon Larethian is said to have given birth to the entire elven race, although sometimes Sehanine is given credit as well. Elven lore states that the Fair Folk sprang from drops of blood Corellon shed in epic battles with Gruumsh mingled with Sehanine's tears. The Creator of the Elves embodies the highest ideals of elvenkind, and he is the patron of most aesthetic endeavors, including art, magic, music, poetry, and warfare. He is venerated by all the Fair Folk, except the drow and those who have turned to Lolth, and other dark powers. Corellon is especially popular with elf and half-elf mages, musicians, and poets.


While Corellon shared the elven trait of pride that may border arrogance, this never got the better of him. He is a god with an endless willingness to learn from others and acted on it, even including mortals to his sources of discovering new information, methods, and philosophies.


The elves are sculptors and wardens of magic's endless mysteries. Bring forth the beauty that envelops and lets the spirit gambol unfettered. Seek out new experiences and new ways. Ward against the loss of life and those that would destroy what they cannot create. Commune with the natural and mystical world. Be ever vigilant to any taint of evil among the elves, and stamp out any evil influence the moment it appears. Be strong in heart against the corruption of the Spider Queen.


Among Corellon's worshipers were elves, and their descendants, as well as many bards. His clerics wore silver circlets and gossamer robes of the brightest azure. One of his most frequent holy days was the quarter moon and Corellon was worshiped at natural geological formations with beautiful objects sacrificed to him monthly.
