Oracy is the primary religion of Marrow, and is said to be the first elven religion in existance. Someone who follows the religion of Oracy is said to be an Oretic. The six gods, called The Great Ancestors, are thought to have been the first elves to walk the earth, and every elf in existence is a long removed child form them. The gods seem to be based on parts of nature that were very prevalent in the Marrowan elves lives, and also parts of nature that brought great mystery to them. They tend to have more primal meanings, such as Lua being a goddess of the moon and the night, as opposed to more abstract meaning like being a goddess of festivals. While there is one pantheon of elven gods, most of the clans seem to champion some over the others, but all gods are recognized by every denizen of Marrow. There is also a seventh god, the goddess Unora, who is displayed alongside all six Great Ancestors in the capital of Elder. All gods seem to have the traditional masculine ending "r", while all goddesses seem to have the traditional feminine ending "a".

Lua Edit

Lua is the goddess associated with the Moon and night and is one of the two main deities championed by the Vaneer in the Ebony Isles.

The Vaneer also believe that they derive their power from Lua.

Mar Edit

Mar is the god of the sea and is also championed by the Vaneer. Being completely surrounded by the Serpent Sea, the Vaneer believe Mar protects them from outside attacks and is their connection to the rest of the elven clans.
