Corellon Larethian is the creator of the Elven race, and also its most avid protector. He values those things held in high esteem among elves: magic, music, arts, crafts, poetry, and warfare. It is his influence that leads elves to appreciate the aesthetic pleasures in art and nature. Ever watchful of his children, Corellon keeps an ever-vigilant eye out for the taint of evil to arise in his people once again, ready to stamp it out as he did when he banished the Drow to the Underdark.
Clerics of Corellon often wear blue, serving as leaders or teachers in Elven communities. Temples to Corellon Larethian are located in almost every Elven community, and combine natural elegance with military sensibilities.
The clergy of Corellon Larethian hold heavy sway within the Elven communities around the continent. As such, they can also affect the political spectrum of their human neighbors, though usually through more secretive means, calling in favors and the like. Their largest contingent is within the Elven city of Endrel, in the Endrel Forest.
It is rumored that in times past, Corellon Larethian put out the eye of Gruumsh, the god of Orcs, in an ancient battle, though the truthfulness of this rumor has never been validated.
