Dalish legends Edit
I am Sister of the Moon, Mother of Hares,
Lady of the Hunt: Andruil.
Remember the Ways of the Hunter
And I shall be with you.
—From Codex entry: Andruil: Goddess of the Hunt
Some legends paint Andruil as a daughter of Elgar'nan and Mythal while others suggest she is a child of the earth. She is the creator of the Vir Tanadahl or Way of Three Trees. First, the Vir Assan, or Way of the Arrow: fly straight and do not waver. Second, the Vir Bor'assan, or Way of the Bow: bend but never break. Third, the Vir Adahlen, or Way of the Forest: together we are stronger than the one. Andruil watched over the animals of the forest and taught elves to respect them.
Ghilan'nain, once a mortal elven woman, was Andruil's chosen and/or beloved. There is a number of different stories involving her betrayal at the hands of an elven hunter. In the end Andruil transformed her into a halla, and Ghilan'nain rose to a godly rank.
In Elvhenan Edit
Andruil was also known as the Goddess of Sacrifice. She had a habit of hunting both animals and mortals. Her love for challenging hunts drove her to looking for prey among The Forgotten Ones in the Void, something that ultimately drove her mad. She forgot herself and brought plague to her lands until Mythal successfully challenged her and stole her knowledge of how to find the way to the Abyss.Andruil created a great and terrible weapon, a throwing spear of unbearable heat, crafted from radiance of stars, and her followers implored her not to make them Her sacrifice.
