IC - IN CHARACTER - KNOWLEDGE

Theme: God of Elves, Earth, Forest, Hunting.

Symbol: white stag
Holy Plant: artsa, oak
Colours: green and white
Temples: Elohim, Naph'Tal Treevillage and Tortoise

When the world was young Dualdin looked at it, and he saw it in all it's beauty. He saw dry lands, and meadows, rivers and forests, mountains and the sea. And when the gods were selected to bring life to the world they chose the lands which would be fitting for their children.

Dualdin walked the world and he came to the southern edge of the lands of Primordia. The trees were still young and vivid, and soon he started to talk to them. They said that they would like the company of some gentle folk, of people who were nimble and graceful, merry and peaceful, so they could watch them dance in their shade.

And so it happened that Dualdin created the elves. And he gave them the capability to be nimble and beautiful inside and outside. He gave them the heart to embrace nature and the trees.

They lived in peace with the forest, and their joy of life was unsurpassed, yet Dualdin saw that what he had created would be overshadowed by the sorrow of loss, because the trees were of long life, but the elves lived only a few hundred years.

So he came back to the world and spoke to his children, and he decided that they should be the ones to decide for themselves when they wished to leave the world.


OOC - OUT OF CHARACTER - KNOWLEDGE

As all of the major gods Dualdin was created by AO, and AO sent him to take care of the plants together with Tharandil. Dualdin split the work with his sister, and he concentrated on the trees and the forests.

When his work was finished Dualdin added the animals of the forest, but still there was no perfect cycle of renewal, and so he attempted to teach the humans about the Hunt. But they were too clumsy to properly stalk the game in the forest, and so he decided to create his own race, the graceful, agile elves.

To the elven race, Dualdin is the most important deity. As the creator of their race and the forests, their original home, he gave them all they needed to live for themselves, and often the other races view them as frolicking because of their easy, life-loving ways. Non-elves are more critical of the wonders of Dualdin, however, the forest is more a resource of food and building material to them.

Followers of Dualdin cherish life in all its forms. No game is killed without need, no life disturbed beyond its nature. As one of the more forgiving gods, Dualdin is often seen by other people as a 'good' god, since his intention is to do no harm to others. Yet Dualdin will always help his children, the elves, before all others.

Within the world people usually see Dualdin as a god with tendencies to the "good" side of the struggle.

Among the Pantheon Dualdin is regarded as neutral.
