The Seldarine (Tel'Seldarine in the Elvish language) is the pantheon of the elves, based primarily in the plane of Arborea, which they call Arvandor or Arvanaith. The name roughly translates as "the fellowship of brothers and sisters of the wood." The Seldarine are led by the greater deity Corellon Larethian.
