Few Elves will ever truly admit their admiration for the Death Goddess, Tildria - referring to Her as simply "The Keeper." She is considered an important god in the Elven Pantheon, nonetheless, reminding all within this world that everything must end. Many look upon The Keeper with fear as any mortal does with the thoughts of dying. Some scholars consider Her to be one of the most misunderstood gods within the Elven Faiths. She is not good, nor evil. Tildria comes for all and none escape Her; an ideology kept by the Elves in regards to Her. The Keeper has a small clergy and few followers, for She does remind the elves that they are not true immortals; those that do follow Her are deeply faithful and loyal in their worship and servitude. She is thought to be the one that traffics souls to The After. The use of her name "Tildria" is recognized as taboo and used in curse for those bold enough to do so. (IE: "Tildria's Skirts!") The Keeper is not the daughter of any god nor is the lover of them - for She takes all, including the lives of the Gods. Even if not faithful to the Death Goddess, She is respected with Elven society, even to a point of fear. In the military, where soldiers do not typically follow Her in faith, She has a large fellowship among the Elven Sharps due to their duty.
