Sehanine, Goddess of the Moon

Sehanine

Sehanine Moonbow (pronounced seh-ha-neen moon-boe)[1] is the fey aspectof Selûne[2], goddess of the moon. She is one of the more powerful members of the Seldarine. The Lady of Dreams actively opposes the nefarious schemes of the Spider Queen and the other drow powers. She is said to be the wife ofCorellon Larethian. Sehanine lives in the realm of Arvandor.

As befits the elven goddess of mysteries, Sehanine is cloaked in secrets and illusions and rarely speaks her mind directly, preferring to communicate through a process of dreams, visions, and other mystic experiences. The Goddess of Moonlight is truly spiritual and ephemeral being who evades any attempt to define her and whose serenity surrounds her like a mantle of moondust.

Worshippers

Worshipers of Sehanine Moonbow seek out and destroy undead creatures, for Sehanine holds such creatures — with the notable exceptions of baelnorn and other good-aligned undead beings who voluntarily prolong their existence in order to serve their kin — to be blasphemous.

Relationships

With the rise of humanity and its rapacious expansion into traditional elven homelands, Sehanine has found her energies increasingly occupied by thwarting the destructive ravages of gods such as Auril, Cyric, Malar, Talos, andUmberlee. She also opposes Lolth. She is allied with other Gods who oppose undeath, including Kelemvor.
