- “Andruil, blood and force, your people pray to you. Grant that your eye may not fall upon us. Spare us the moment we become Your prey.”
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.
Andruil is the creator of the Vir Tanadhal 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: receive the gifts of the hunt with mindfulness, or alternatively, 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 indeed the hunter. She made great and terrible weapons: a golden bow crafted from the gathering storm and the screams of the south wind and a golden spear of unbearable heat crafted from the radiance of stars.
One of the People, Ghilan'nain created a multitude of beasts, and Andruil was killing them for a year before approaching her with an offer of apotheosis. In exchange Ghilan'nain destroyed most of them, sparing only some "monsters of air" that she presented to Andruil as a gift, some deep sea creatures and the halla.the Forgotten Ones in the Abyss, something that ultimately drove her mad. Andruil put on armor made of the Void and made weapons of darkness. She brought plague to her lands and howled things meant to be forgotten. Finally Mythal successfully challenged her and stole her knowledge of how to find the Void.
Symbols and shrines Edit
Veilfire symbols in the Exalted Plains show a hawk and a hare chasing the sun, while in an ancient riddle the owl sees the hunter, the halla flees from it, the dragon hunts it in turn, while the wolf outwits them all.
