Into the Darkness
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.
Interestingly, though the elven gods are responsible for the gifts of the world, and in some cases for recreating it, they too were created by and are not creators of the world according to elven belief. Their current location is uncertain, as they are not apparently able to interact with the mortal world. However, elven belief holds that the Fade, or Beyond as it is known to the elves, is considered a holy place and the gods are trapped there in the "Eternal City.
