In the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, Corellon Larethian is the leader of the elven pantheon, and the god of Magic, Music, Arts, Crafts, Poetry, and Warfare. Corellon is also considered a member of the default D&D pantheon. He is the creator and preserver of the elven race, and governs those things held in the highest esteem among elves. Corellon lives in the realm of Arvandor on the plane of Arborea. James M. Ward created Corellon Larethian for the Deities and Demigods Cyclopedia in 1980.

In many campaign settings, the elven pantheon of gods (also known as the Seldarine) consists of the leader Corellon Larethian, as well as Aerdrie Faenya, Deep Sashelas, Erevan Ilesere, Fenmarel Mestarine, Hanali Celanil, Labelas Enoreth, Rillifane Rallathil, Sehanine Moonbow, and Solonor Thelandira. Other elven gods may be present in different campaign settings.


Gruumsh One-Eye, god of the orcs, is his greatest enemy, because Corellon took his eye in an ancient battle. The entire orc pantheon hates Corellon intensely. Corellon also opposes the deities of the goblinoids.

Corellon was also the one to banish the drow goddess Lolth (Araushnee in the Forgotten Realms setting) to the Abyss. Corellon can count all evil drow gods as enemies for this.

Because of his keen friendship with the Seelie Court, Corellon often finds himself at odds with the Queen of Air and Darkness.

In the Forgotten Realms, Corellon has most often been at odds with Cyric, Talos, Malar, and Moander.


Elves and half-elves (as well as many bards) worship Corellon. He favors those who kill orcs and the followers of Lolth. He blesses those who aid others. He is upset at those who defile the dead, or flee from their foes.

Corellon's clerics wear silver circlets and gossamer robes of the brightest azure. His holy day is the quarter moon, and he is worshipped at natural geological formations. Beautiful objects are sacrificed to him monthly. His favored weapon is the longsword.

Fellowship of the Forgotten Flower[]

The Fellowship of the Forgotten Flower is a loosely structured organization made of elven knights dedicated to the recovery of lost elven relics from long-abandoned elven realms. Members must be elven warriors or elven paladins.

Seekers of the Misty Isle[]

The Seekers of the Misty Isle are an elite order of elves dedicated to finding the Misty Isle which was whisked away by the deities Gruumsh and Kurtulmak.
