Aslan is said to be one of the older deities, present at the birth of the material plane. He is simultaneously a deity of Justice in the mould of Forgotten Realms' Tyr, a deity of nature who cares for the wild like Silvanus and a deity of celebration like Liira. Aslan is the patron of the nation of Narnia and talking beasts in particular. He values and celebrates all life, but would unhesitatingly sacrifice his own for the cause of good or divine law.
Aslan appears as an adult male barbary lion in the prime of life. He is said to be able to change size, ranging from the size of an ordinary lion up to the size of the largest bull african elephant. It is suggested that Aslan's shapeshifting abilities may go far beyond that but he chooses to remain a lion.

- "For I and he (Tash) are of such different kinds that no service which is vile can be done to me, and none which is not vile can be done to him."
- "They have chosen cunning instead of belief. Their prison is only in their own minds, yet they are in that prison; and so afraid of being taken in that they cannot be taken out."
Clergy and Temples
Aslan has no formal clergy or temples, but he has several holy places where his worshipers often gather and their enemies regard as haunted.
Aslan's chief ally and superior in the Narnian pantheon is the Emperor over the Sea. While he will readily ally with others if it suits his goals, and will aid, comfort or encourage even evil creatures with a touch of good left in them, he is not the most reliable ally. He can be counted on to always keep his word and always fight for good, but is otherwise not predictable.
