Corellon or more fully Corellon Larethian, whose titles included Creator of the Elves and the Protector, was the patron god of all elves. He was the creator and preserver of the Tel'Quessir, governing those things held in the highest esteem among elves, such as magic, music, arts, crafts, poetry, and warfare. Corellon lived in the realm of Arvandor. He approved of those who killed orcs and followers of Lolth, blessed those who aided others, and became angered at those who defiled the dead, or fled from their foes.[2][3]

Gruumsh One-Eye became Corellon's greatest enemy after Corellon plucked out the orc god's eye in ancient times. The entire orc pantheon hated Corellon intensely. Corellon opposed the deities of the goblinoids as well, also being at odds with Cyric, Talos, Malar, and Moander. Corellon was also the one to banish Araushnee to the Abyss, resulting in her transformation into Lolth, the spider-bodied demon goddess of the evil drow. Corellon could count all evil drow gods as enemies for this. The only exception to this was his daughter, Eilistraee, whom he cleared of all charges.[citation needed]


Among Corellon's worshipers were elves, eladrin, and their descendants, as well as many bards. His clerics wore silver circlets and gossamer robes of the brightest azure. One of his most frequent holy days was the quarter moon and Corellon was worshiped at natural geological formations with beautiful objects sacrificed to him monthly.[citation needed]


  • Fellowship of the Forgotten Flower: The fellowship was a loosely structured organization made of elven knights or elven warriors dedicated to the recovery of lost elven relics from long-abandoned realms.[5]



James M. Ward created Corellon Larethian for the Deities and Demigods (1980).
