The Seldarine (Elvish for "fellowship of brothers and sisters of the wood") was the elven pantheon of gods that resided on the astral dominion of Arvandor under the leadership of Corellon Larethian.[2]

MembersEdit

Members of the Seldarine have male and female forms, and are often portrayed as both (particularly Corellon), though most as presented as taking on the form of one of the other. In Cormanthor, there were statues of the Seldarine in both their male and female forms.

The many members of the Seldarine included:

  • Corellon Larethian, a greater god and leader of the Seldarine; he was the elven god of magic, warfare, music, art, and crafts.
  • Angharradh, a greater goddess and consort to Corellon; commonly believed to be a combination of three other elven goddesses (Sehanine Moonbow, Aerdrie Faenya, and Hanali Celanil) formed when Lolth rebelled and was exiled. Sometimes described as Corellon's consort.
  • Aerdrie Faenya, intermediate goddess of the wind, weather, and avariel (winged elves).
  • Alathrien Druanna, demigoddess of runic and conjuration magic.[3]
  • Alobal Lorfiril, demipower of hedonism and revelry.[4]

  • Fenmarel Mestarine, lesser god of outcasts, scapegoats, and isolation.
  • Gadhelyn, god of independence, outlawry.[7]
  • Hanali Celanil, intermediate goddess of romantic love, beauty, and joy.
  • Khalreshaar, an interloper goddess in the elven pantheon. Believed by half-elves to be the daughter of Silvanus and Hanali Celanil, and as such, the first truly half-elven deity.[8]
  • Kirith Sotheril, a lesser goddess of divination and enchantment magic.[5]
  • Labelas Enoreth, intermediate deity of time, history, and knowledge.

The events of the Spellplague affected the Seldarine, though perhaps not as harshly as it did some of the other deities. However, several of the gods, such as Deep Sashelas, Labelas, Solonor, Erevan, Fenmarel, and Shevarash all became exarchs. Corellon and Angaharradh managed to hang on to their original positions, but Hanali became the elven aspect of Sune, and Sehanine of Selune.

After the Second Sundering, order was restored, and the Seldarine was back to the way it was prior to the Spellplague, with Sehanine being described as Corellon's main consort/beloved.
