The supreme being of good in Halnor, Galanth fights for the people of Halnor to live peacefully, without threat of death or enslavement. Though naturally formless, Galanth has a few physical forms she sometimes possesses. These include a great bear, stag, lion and griffon. These are the forms that she takes when walking the world of Halnor. Few, if any, citizens have seen her, and almost all had no idea what she was. Galanth prefers to distance herself from Halnor when she has power, and only likes to intervene when evil rears its ugly head.
The few that did realize Galanth for what she was immediately embarked on a mission to enlighten the world of her existence. The majority of these unfortunate people were ostracized from civilization, deemed wild, outlandish and crazy. There was one human, though, that struck a chord with many others during a Summer long ago. Jontan Westley, as his name was, grouped a great many people together and started the Taerun organization. They delighted in all that was good, and praised Galanth for their riches.
Unfortunately, Ezor was quickly turning the world to his domination, and many of the Taerun died. Those that lived fought hard to keep evil at bay, but eventually the lost their grip. Winter set upon Halnor, and the story of Galanth was all but lost. The remaning Taerun only banded together because of a common goal to bring back Summer, not because they knew the lore of Galanth.
