Corellon

Corellon Larethian is a greater god, and one of the more notable in the entire pantheon. Ruler of All Elves, Creator of the Elves, Coronal of Arvandor, First of the Seldarine, Preserver of Life, The Protector. Corellon is not only the patron god of the elves, but of all fey throughout the multiverse. He is the creator and preserver of the Tel’Quessir (the elven name for all elves as a species), governing those things held in the highest esteem among eladrin and elves, such as magic, music, arts, crafts, poetry, and warfare. Corellon lived in the realm of Arvandor. He approved of those who killed orcs and followers of Lolth, blessed those who aided others and became angered at those who defiled the dead, or fled from their foes

Legends of the epic battles between Corellon and Gruumsh One-Eye (God of the Orcs) are the most repeated in the history of Toril. During that great struggle, the eladrin were born of Corellon’s blood. He is the benevolent ruler of Arvandor and the leader of the Seldarine (“the fellowship of brothers and sisters of the wood”), god and exarchs who embody the eladrin’s proud and ancient traditions.

Though Corellon is a skilled warrior, it is his love of the eladrin and their great works of magic and beauty that inspire him. That inspiration is returned to his people a thousandfold. Corellon’s feywardens are charged with protecting the traditions and works of their race. They turn aside political power, acting as advisors to the kings and queens of the elven realms.

The holiest day for Corellites is Shieldmeet, but every month they gather under the crescent moon
to observe Lateu’quor, the Forest Communion of the Crescent Moon, praising their deity with a multitude of beautiful works.

Corellon asks the following of his worshippers:

The elves are sculptors and wardens of magic’s endless mysteries. Bring forth the beauty that envelops and let the spirit gambol unfettered. Seek out new experiences and new ways. Ward against those that would destroy what they cannot create. Commune with the natural and mystical world. Be ever vigilant against the return of the banished darkness, and be strong in heart against the corruption of the Spider Queen.
