The deity of Elves, Corellon Larethian (core-eh-lon lah-reth-ee-yen), usually appears as an androgynous elf clad in a sky-blue cloak and armed with a longbow and longsword. They also wear a large circular amulet that bears their crescent moon symbol. They have a lithe and swift look about them and their movements are both swift and graceful.
Corellon Larethian is the creator and Protector of the elven race. They govern those things held in highest esteem among the elves, such as magic, music, arts, crafts, poetry, and warfare. Gruumsh, the deity of orcs, is their nemesis, and it is because of Corellon's battle prowess that Gruumsh is called "One-Eye."

Dogma[edit | edit source]
Corellon concerns theirself with all aspects of elven welfare. They also remain alert to any taint of evil among the elves, and they seek to stamp out any evil influence the moment it appears. Corellon played a leading role in the schism that ultimately resulted in the banishment of the drow underground.
Corellon spurs their people toward self-reliance, vigilance against danger, and appreciation of the world's beauty. It is Corellon's influence that leads elves to study magic and swordplay for the duration of their long lives, to serve as guardians and caretakers of the forests, and to appreciate aesthetic pleasures in spite of their warrior heritage
Clergy and Temples[edit | edit source]
Corellon's clerics often wear blue cloaks. They serve as leaders, teachers, diplomats, and generals in elven communities. They train others in the arts of combat and magic while honing their own skills, and they serve as mediators in any disputes that may arise from the elves' independent lifestyle. They usually seek to maintain cordial relations with other good, sylvan creatures.
Corellon's temples can be located anywhere elves live. Usually in sylvan woodlands. Though always beautiful and designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape, they are invariably both sturdy and defensible. They are often placed on hilltops, river crossings, and other locations of strategic significance. Living plants or trees are always included in a temple of Corellon, either as decoration or part of the same structure.
