Interactions between this and other Deities and their followersEdit

In many campaign settings, the elven pantheon of gods (also known as the Seldarine) consists of the leader Corellon Larethian, as well as Aerdrie Faenya, Deep Sashelas, Erevan Ilesere, Fenmarel Mestarine, Hanali Celanil, Labelas Enoreth, Rillifane Rallathil, Sehanine Moonbow, and Solonor Thelandira. Other elven gods may be present in different campaign settings. Gruumsh One-Eye, god of the orcs, is his greatest enemy, because Corellon took his eye in an ancient battle. The entire orc pantheon hates Corellon intensely. Corellon also opposes the deities of the goblinoids. Corellon was also the one to banish the drow goddess Lolth to the Abyss. Corellon can count all evil drow gods as enemies for this. Because of his keen friendship with the Seelie Court, Corellon often finds himself at odds with the Queen of Air and Darkness. In the Forgotten Realms, Corellon has most often been at odds with Cyric, Talos, Malar, and Moander.
