Berronar Truesilver, Chauntea and Silvanus were the deities most attuned to the life domain. To the revered mother of dwarfs, kinship was the most essential part of life, and a new life was an extension of the family. The Forest Father and The Great Mother both strongly encouraged the birthing of new life, though Silvanus cared foremost about life in the wilderness and was known to unleash his wrath if someone attempted to harm the lush beauty of nature, while Chauntea had respect and love for all living things.[1]
