Callarduran Smoothhands, also known as the Deep Brother, was a neutral gnome deity. He was primarily venerated as the patron of the Underdark-dwelling gnome subrace, the svirfneblin.[3]


The church of Callarduran was highly organized, so that clans could share information and coordinate against the dangers of the Underdark, such as the drow.[3]


Callarduran was a distant ally of the other non-evil deities of the gnome pantheon. He was also loosely linked to the other patrons of non-evil Underdark deities, such as Eilistraee, Shevarash, Dumathoin, and Geb. His foes were the Dark Seldarine and the other evil Underdark deities.[3]
