Aphneon is a member of the Elvish Primordials, the five primary deities worshiped by the elves. In the oldest mythology, Aphneon is identified as the god of light and life, and is generally associated with the worship of the sun. Some of the more religious elves worship Aphneon as the primary elvish deity, although this practice is not common throughout the elvish realms. Janaga Moonshadow identified Aphneon as one of the oldest Elvish deities, and his origin, so far as anyone can tell, comes from the oldest legends told amongst the High Elves.
To this day, Aphneon remains a powerful and oft worshiped deity, whose temples can be found throughout the entire Dragon Empire.
