Correlon Larethain is credited with the creation of the Elves – and is god of the Sun, Spring, and Valour. His nickname of “Eldest” leads some elven scholars to believe that he is the first of the Gods and the Elves are the first of the noble races.

It is said that he created the Elves and the Elven Gods through the union of himself and two sisters, Selhaine and Lloth – who represented the Light and Dark of the Moon.

Over time he grew to care for Selhaine more and his choice of her over Lolth led to a schism between the elven nations.

The resulting war led to Llolth being cast down to the Underworld and her followers being driven into the Underdark. They became known as the Drow, or Dark Elves.

Selhaine became the only Goddess of the Moon, while Llolth became Goddess of Darkness and Spiders.
