The Avalon elf pantheon, known as the Estanosse, the First House, are the group of deities worshiped by the elves native to Ire. Most of the pantheon has an affinity towards birds. Birds represent all that an elf is: freedom, grace, and precision. Whether it is a dove or falcon, birds are common sights in elven worship.
Sibling deities Kaeleth and the Spider Queen were among the first gods, and after the creation of the mortal realm they looked to create life. They created perfection. They created what the elves call Mi'Elthi en Toloth, or the Original Eight. They are the first eight elves. They are similar to saints and a couple have become gods. They are called upon to bestow blessings in prayer.
Kaeleth and his sister and/or wife now only known as the Spider Queen. Shortly after their ascension, Pria, Kaeleth's current wife, ascended next to them.
"The Lady and her King were born and walked among the Firsts. The All Maker lived among the other divines, ascended to their place as the rightful inheritors of Power. The two lived and loved and together birthed the Eight.
