Born Aranel Mellindirath, The Seeker is the newest member of the Faerûnian Pantheon, having attained his divinity at the end of the Time of Troubles. In mortality, Aranel had a great many followers. They called themselves the Striders of Aranel; seeking out secret evil organizations and disrupting their plans. Their numbers have grown since Aranel’s ascension, but they remain very loosely organized. Many followers of Shaundakul have also joined the Striders’ ranks. Aranel served the entire Elven pantheon prior to his ascension, seeking out items or people at their direction. In more recent years, non-elven, good-aligned deities have begun to utilize his skills as well, and he is quickly earning a very positive reputation among the gods. While Aranel yet has very few divine disciples of his own, a large part of Solonor Thelandira’s (the elven god of archery) clergy reveres Aranel as the Great Archer’s prodigy and highest servant; the finest arrow in Keen-Eye’s quiver. Unbeknownst to many, Solonor Thelandira is preparing to relinquish his seat of power to Aranel, no longer wanting to be troubled by the affairs of mortals. High Priests of the Great Archer have already been told through divine contact to honor The Seeker as they would Keen-Eye himself. While he will be receiving the portfolio of an elven deity in the near future, Aranel already has a (small) portfolio of his own.
