Melira Taralen was a minor elven goddess of bards and minstrels.[2]


Melira Taralen appeared as a pretty, vivacious elven female with flaxen hair and brilliant blue eyes. Her robe was normally the same color as her eyes, and she had her lute and sword with her always.[1]


Melira was a member of the Seldarine. Although she had no true foes of her own, as a member of the Seldarine she opposed the drow and goblinoid deities. She also had a friendly rivalry with the god Milil, due to their similar portfolios.[2]
