As the God of the Undersea, Deep Sashelas works to protect the human race from the evil forces that live in the ocean. While he has particular enmity toward the sahuagin god Sekolah the Great Shark, he also works to contain the evil that dwells in Umberlee. In his efforts to combat Umberlee, he has lent his aid to the human god of sailors, Valkur, as he is the natural counterweight to the tyrants of the undersea.
Lord of the Undersea
The chaotic-good-aligned god Deep Sashelas, a.k.a. the Dolphin Prince, is the patron of marine elves and the chairman of the Asathalfinare, the united pantheon of sea gods. He is revered as the god of mariners and has a long history of dalliances. He has been involved with several other gods, including the giant goddess Trishina and his wife, Trishina. While his main role is to protect his creations, Sashelas also has many enemies and is continually reshaping the ocean depths. He favors the trident.
The temple of the Lord of the Undersea is built of coral and natural stone. There are spiraling columns leading to a maze of caves and sea shell archways. A main chamber is filled with water and lit by magical floating globes. Shell mosaics cover the walls and floors, and there is a fountain at the center of the main chamber.
Worshippers of the Lord of the Undersea honor him through the creation of wonders and works of art. After completing a project, clergy of the Deep Sashelas offer a prayer. There are also rituals and ceremonies that commemorate the high and low tides.
The Lord of the Undersea, or Deep Sashelas, is an elven god of the sea and patron deity of aquatic elves.
Sea elf leader
The leader of a Sea elf city is called a sahuagin, the aquatic god. Sea elves live in tiny islands in the shallows of the ocean, and they can speak Aquan. While they remain isolated from other races, they understand the importance of alliances and trade. Here are some of the reasons why Sea elves are so fearsome:
The Deep Sashelas is the patron of aquatic elves, the leaders of the Asathalfinare, and the god of mariners. As the patron of the deep, Sashelas is fierce and has many allies, but he is also a great opponent.
The sashelas is divided into regions. The continent of Oerth is the center of Deep Sashelas, and the islands form a circle. This makes it easier to track down the leaders. There are a number of sashelas leaders, but the one that is most recognizable is Panzuriel.
Despite their aloof behavior, the sashelas is a place where Aquatic Elves are most comfortable. Though their aversion towards other races and other peoples is understandable, they also value their community and are loyal to those who are close to them. This makes them particularly good choices for leaders who want to expand the lands of their people.
The eldest male of a ruling family tends to have the most political power. Priests of the Deep Sashelas wear loose-fitting sea green robes and armor made from shells. They also forego headdresses. Despite the fact that their priests have access to complex demihuman scale mail, most Sashelan priests still use traditional sea elf weapons in battle. They have a limited understanding of other weapons, such as bows and arrows.
Despite their differences, the Sea Elves share a similar moral stance. Rather, they view them as friends. So, they are more tolerant of humans.
Leader of the asathalfinare
The de facto leader of the asathalfinare is the aquatic elf Lord of the Undersea, Deep Sashelas. Aquatic elves worship him and other members of the Seldarine race. Some sailors offer sacrifices to him, while clerics of the aquatic elven church use these offerings for their own gain.
The deity Deep Sashelas is the patron of aquatic elves and the leader of the Asathalfinare. His dalliances with mermaids, selkies, and giant goddesses have characterized his character. His allies include eadro, Persana, and Trishina.
