Deer were found all over Faerûn.[citation needed] Deer were the preferred animal manifestations of Gwaeron Windstrom, Shiallia, and Silvanus. Stags, male deer, were favored by the gods Baervan Wildwanderer, Eldath, and Rillifane Rallathil, while white-coated celestial stags were chosen by Labelas Enoreth.[5]

Hybsils were often on good terms with deers.[15]
