He also guides lost travelers and aids the seekers of truth on their path.

He is known to contact mortals through omens, revelations, shooting stars, and the best way to get his attention is to pray towards The Shaft of Light.

Due to his curious nature, and jovial and outgoing personality, Araleth is great at making friends and gathering information and distributing it generously.

Vices & Personality flaws

While often deliverer of messages, even divination, Araleth is no diviner. Thus, all information he gives is the truth as he knows it, and information can be incomplete or his source might be false without him knowing it. In quite a few myths others have tried to use this against him or those depending on him, as well as trying to make him spill out truths he wasn't meant to share.

Araleth is also described to have a bit short temper and being distracted by his whims. This has caused quite a few arguments amongst the divinity and caused obstacles for him as he has delivered messages and a short detour has delayed him getting to his destination.
