Elven Pantheon

Elven Pantheon

Long ago, when time itself was young, the only things in existence were the sun and the land. The sun, curious about the land, bowed his head close to her body, and Elgar’nan was born in the place where they touched. The sun and the land loved Elgar’nan greatly, for he was beautiful and clever. As a gift to Elgar’nan, the land brought forth great birds and beasts of sky and forest, and all manner of wonderful green things. Elgar’nan loved his mother’s gifts and praised them highly and walked amongst them often.

—From “The Tale of Elgar’nan and the Sun,” as told by Gisharel, Keeper of the Ralaferin Clan

The elven pantheon comprises five gods and four goddesses, whom the modern Dalish elves refer to as “the Creators.” The pantheon is led by Elgar’nan the All-Father, god of fatherhood and vengeance, and Mythal the Protector, goddess of motherhood and justice. There are also references in elven mythology to another race of gods, called “The Forgotten Ones,” the enemies of the elven pantheon. It is said that Fen’Harel was the only one able to walk freely between the two clans, and they both thought of him as one of their own.
