In many campaign settings Oberon is the fey deity of nature, wild places, and animals. Oberon is the consort of Titania and a member of her Seelie Court. These deities are taken from English folklore, where Oberon (Auberon) and his wife Titania rule over the fairies (e.g., Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream). The medieval concept of the character Oberon arose from a multitude of earlier sources like dwarf sorcerer Alberich from Nibelungenlied.
