Fenmarel Mestarine (pronounced: /ˈfɛnmərɛl ˈmɛstərinFEHN-muh-rel MESS-tuh-reen[1]) was a member of the Seldarine, though he refused to have any contact with them unless absolutely necessary. He was sullen and withdrawn, offering cynicism and distrust to almost any non-elf who he came across.[1]

WorshipersEdit

Those most likely to worship Fenmarel Mestarine were pariahs and tribes of wild elves struggling to survive in a world hostile to their kind. The clergy of Fenmarel Mestarine offered training in techniques considered underhanded by some, including poisoning, guerilla warfare, and deception.[1]

Members of Fenmarel Mestarine's clergy prayed at dusk, an analogy to when darkness first settled upon the world. Each independent group of worshipers worshiped and celebrated their god in their own unique way, a representation of the chaotic nature of a profoundly paranoid deity.[1]

Divine RealmEdit

Although Fenmarel was officially considered an inhabitant of Arvandor along with the rest of the Seldarine, he preferred to spend most of his time in his own forest realm of Fennimar in Limbo.[4]

RelationshipsEdit

Solonor Thelandira, Shevarash, Gwaeron Windstrom, and Eilistraee were all on good terms with Fenmarel Mestarine, but only the beauty and gentleness of Sehanine Moonbow could bring him into the council halls of the Seldarine.[1]

HistoryEdit

Fenmarel Mestarine was Lolth's adulterous partner prior to her betrayal. He was among the first to be seduced by her promise of power but managed to get back on track with the rest of the Seldarine before the betrayal became anything serious, and believed that Corellon Larethian had a bad opinion about him for his history.[6]

DogmaEdit

The world is a harsh and unforgiving place, with uncompromising demands on those who would forge their own path. Rely not on others for protection, for betrayal comes easily, but on the skills of camouflage, deception, and secrecy. Follow the way of the Lone Wolf, for his is the path of self-sufficiency.
