Corellon Larethian

Greater God (Chaotic Good)
Corellon Larethian is the creator and protector of the elf race. He governs those things held in highest esteem among elves, such as magic, music, arts, crafts, poetry, and warfare. Elves, half-elves, and bards worship him. Gruumsh is his nemesis, and it is because of Corellon's battle prowess that Gruumsh is called "One-Eye." He is known as the Creator of the Elves, the Protector, Protector and Preserver of Life, and Ruler of All Elves.
Portfolio: Elves, magic, music, arts.
Domains: Chaos, Community, Good, Protection, War.
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.
