Dirthamen- Keeper of Secrets

Dirthamen: Keeper of Secrets

Dirthamen wandered aimlessly till he came across two ravens. "You are lost, and soon you will fade," the raven named Fear said to Dirthamen. "Your brother has abandoned you. He no longer loves you," said the other, named Deceit. "I am not lost, and Falon'Din has not abandoned me," replied Dirthamen. He subdued the ravens and bade them carry him to Falon'Din.
—From Codex entry: Dirthamen: Keeper of Secrets

Dirthamen is the twin brother of Falon'Din. He is also known as a "twin soul" to Falon'Din, rather than merely a twin.[1]Dirthamen is the elven god of secrets and knowledge, and master of the ravens Fear and Deceit, having found them in the Fade and outsmarted them both.[2] Dirthamen gave to elves the gift of knowledge and taught them loyalty and faith in family.[3]

There are several elven legends involving the Keeper of Secrets. In the days before Arlathan, the first varterral was formed from the fallen trees of the forest to guard an ancient city said to be beloved by Dirthamen.[4] Another tale says that he gave each creature a secret to keep. However, the hares shouted their secret to the treetops, the birds sold theirs for gold and the foxes traded their secret for wings. Only the bears kept Dirthamen's secret, so the bear is considered beloved of Dirthamen.[5]

Dirthamen is sometimes depicted as a cloaked kneeling figure.[6] Ancient glyphs scattered across the Exalted Plains reveal the location of the Lost Temple of Dirthamen.
