Araleth Letheranil was a minor elven god of starlight.[1]


Araleth appeared as a male elf with silvery hair and glowing golden eyes. He wore white robes, and was sometimes surrounded by a shimmering white aura.[2]


Araleth opposed evil, and encouraged elves to combat any evil, darkness-loving creatures. He was especially aggressive and relentless when regarding the drow.[2][1]

Divine RealmEdit

He lived on the plane of Arborea, in Arvandor. His house was called the House of Glowing Stars.[1]


Araleth Letheranil was a member of the elven pantheon.[2][1]


Besides the other Seldarine, he was allied with Selune.[1]


As a member of the Seldarine, Araleth was an enemy of the drow and goblinoid deities. He was also opposed to the goddess Shar.[1]


Araleth Letheranil was one of the younger deities of the Seldarine—one of the "Second Born" who came after Araushnee's rebellion and exile.[1]

At some point in his life, he personally battled Lolth during a war between the elves and the drow. He ultimately won the hard-fought battle, but was left with a scar on his shoulder—the result of an envenomed bite from the Queen of Spiders.[2][1]
