Vhaeraun, pronounced vay-rawn, is vain, proud, and sometimes haughty. He bears grudges of legendary length and never forgets slights or deceptions. Any underhanded means and treachery are acceptable to him if they further his aims or are done in his service, but if others so treat him or his people, it is a deep sin that cannot go unpunished. He actively involves himself in drow affairs and can be easily convinced to send a minion to assist the work of his clerics if the proper rituals are performed and the need is genuine.

Vhaeraun is the son of Corellon and Araushnee (who became Lolth), and brother to Eilistraee. Cast out when his and his mother's treachery was discovered, he longs for the surface world he was once free to travel. Allied with Mask, Shar, and Talona, he opposes the other Underdark gods, including his sister. His feud with Lolth is subtle, as he lacks the power to oppose her directly.
