Deep Sashelas is an elven deity who makes his home on Arvandor, although he is rumored to maintain a demesne off the coast of the Moonshae Isles known as Tír faoi 'Thoinn.He is heavily involved with the lives of the sea peoples and spends most of his time with deities from that realm. He gave one group of Corellon's creations the ability to breathe and live underwater, wishing to see the wisdom and goodness of the elves prevail in the deeper and wilder realms of the sea. He is heavily involved in the constant reshaping of the ocean depths, creating reefs and islands, tinkering with undersea volcanoes and the like.
Deep Sashelas is a political deity; he makes considerable efforts to maintain the unity of the Asathalfinare and is on good terms with non-evil human sea and water deities. He has a special enmity for Sekolah, the sahuagin god and for Panzuriel whom he helped banish and weaken.
Deep Sashelas' priests have many responsibilities. They act as mediators and befrienders of non evil aquatic races and protectors of dolphins. All priests must take a dolphin companion to progress through the ranks of priesthood. They must also make some effort to establish and maintain contacts with land-dwelling elves if this is feasible. Finally the priests are responsible for creating and maintaining airy caverns below the sea and finding locations which can be used in this way.
While Deep Sashelas is as chaotic as any elven god, he has a lawful good consort, the dolphin goddess Trishina. Sashelas is infamous for his conquests and amorous exploits. Trishina has some tolerance for such straying but not too much.
