Veldrina is an elven Favored Soul that was tasked by the combined Western Pantheon and Elven Pantheon to represent them at the Northern Godsmoot, a secret mission that she had a hard time keeping secret.
Veldrina described herself as the favored soul of a "really minor" elven goddess, so it is not clear exactly whom she serves. As a favored soul she is able to cast clerical spells, but only those that she learns as the gains levels. However, she is able to cast these spells without preparing them in advance, as clerics do.
Grateful for the Order's help in getting her to the Godsmoot on time, she summed up her opinion of the party in the word, "Meritorious".
Veldrina took her place as a non-voting observer to the Godsmoot in the Great Nave of the cathedral on Zenith Peak along with the sanctioned observer from the Southern Pantheon. She was taken possession by the power of her pantheon to deliver the message of how her gods had voted in their own regional Godsmoot. They voted "yes", canceling the vote of the Southern gods, effectively leaving the decision to destroy the world up to the Northern gods.
She cheered on Roy in his fight against "Durkon" but did not apparently get involved in the conflict on one side or the other when the various clerics joined the fray between Roy and the vampires from the Creed of the Stone.
Vedrina agreed to notify Roy via Sending spell as soon as the sequester of the Godsmoot is ended and the tie is broken.
Veldrina is a fan character created by a Kickstarter Backer who donated enough to earn a "walk-on cameo" for a D&D Character of their creation. When the donor created Veldrina as a divine caster elf, Rich Burlew slotted her into an upcoming story role, thereby giving her much more than a cameo appearance. As alluded to in the dialog of #987, she paid $5000, and it took 2-3 years between the Kickstarter campaign and her introduction into the comics.
While most elves in OOTS have ambiguous gender, Lirian and Veldrina are both clearly female.
