A powerful, exuberant god, Lathander is known as the Commander of Creativity and the Morninglord. When Lathander is depicted, he is most often shown in a form similar to his avatar (1) or as a mist of glowing, rose-colored swirls with two golden eyes at the center. As the god of beginnings, Lathander traditionally receives prayer from many inhabitants of Faerûn at the start of a journey or endeavor. Lathander’s name is invoked to seal alliances start new ventures or companies. As a result, the god is very popular among the merchant classes.
Lathander has a reputation for being sometimes overly enthusiastic, slightly vain, and given to excess, all flaws very common among the young. He is also eternally optimistic and doggedly perseverant.
