Araleth Letheranil was a minor elven god of starlight.[1]


Araleth appeared as a male elf with silvery hair and glowing golden eyes. He wore white robes, and was sometimes surrounded by a shimmering white aura.[4]


Araleth opposed evil, and encouraged elves to combat any evil, darkness-loving creatures. He was especially aggressive and relentless when regarding the drow.[4][1]

Divine Realm[]

He lived on the plane of Arborea, in Arvandor. His house was called the House of Glowing Stars.[1][note 1]


Araleth Letheranil was a member of the Seldarine.[4][1]


He was allied with his fellow members of the Seldarine as well as the Faerûnian goddess Selûne.[1]


As a member of the elven pantheon, Araleth was an enemy of the drow and goblinoid deities. He was also opposed to the goddess Shar.[1]


Araleth Letheranil was one of the younger deities of the Seldarine—one of the "Second Born" who came after Araushnee's rebellion and exile.[1]

At some point in his existence, he personally battled Lolth during a war between the elves and the drow. He ultimately won the hard-fought battle, but was left with a scar on his shoulder—the result of an envenomed bite from the Queen of Spiders.[4][1]



  1. 1.0 1.1 The phrasing indicates that the House of Glowing Stars is located within the joint realm of the Seldarine, Arvandor. It is not explicitly stated that Arvandor here does not refer to the first layer more generally, where that realm is located. But as that layer is usually called Olympus outside Forgotten Realms sources, it seems likely.
