Corellon LarethianGreater God (Chaotic Good)
Major temples exist in Celene, Ulek, Sunndi and Lendore, though small chapels and shrines can be found wherever elves live. Clerics are few, though they work with all elves to protect and preserve the forests and their way of life.

Cleric Training:Because elves are so long-lived, Corellon’s clerics can afford to spend years observing potential recruits before initiating them into the mysteries of the faith. Once a new cleric-to-be gets an invitation to join the clergy, he spends much time in meditation, quiet academic study, and artistic endeavors.
Quests:Corellon wants to protect the elven people from harm, naturally. Beyond that, he wants to return to the elves the lost artistic masterpieces of their heritage, and he tries to thwart the drow at every opportunity. Corellon’s followers find themselves protecting villages from gnoll incursions, stealing into evil temples to recover ancient elven tomes of lore, and destroying underground fortresses full of vampiric drow clerics.
Prayers:Corellon’s prayers are always in Elvish. They often begin, “Hei-Corollon shar- shelevu,” which means “Corellon, may your grace grant.”
Temples: In an elven city, the temple to Corellon Larethian is often an alabaster wonder of minarets and parapets. In smaller communities, the temple often takes the form of a massive treehouse hundreds of feet above the forest floor. Most temples are eager to aid traveling Elves in any way they can—and other races as well if they’re fighting the hated Drow.
Rites:Corellon’s rites are integrated with Elven society, celebrating births, honoring deceased believers, and blessing marriages. Before a battle, believers often recite a Litany of the Arrows.
Herald and Allies:Corellon uses celestial Elves who are 20th-level clerics as his heralds. They are always consummate archers. Allies are Bralani Eladrins, Ghaele Eladrins, and Planetars.
Relics:Bow of the Wintermoon, Millennial Chainmail
