Darahl spent a good deal of time attempting to regain his lost power and gain more followers. Since he wasn't very picky about converts, he tried to sway more neutrally aligned members of the Underdark races to him.
His various activities also earned him a variety of enemies: as a member of the Seldarine he was opposed to the drow and goblinoid deities, but he also earned the ire of Laduguer and Urdlen, and angered both Lolth and Selvetarm.
Darahl Firecloak was once an intermediate god known as Tilvenar, and served the god Rillifane Rallathil. However, an incident with an ancient artifact caused several of his avatars to go mad, causing them to go on a destructive rampage. Although his avatars were eventually cured, many elves forsook him, and he fell to demipower status.
He eventually left Arvandor to live in Arcadia instead, and renamed himself "Darahl Firecloak". In attempts to regain his status as an intermediate power, he forged ties with other deities outside the Seldarine, and sought to convert other peoples besides elves.
