The novel focuses on Raoden, prince of Arelon, who is forced to live in the Lower City after he is ostracized by the other nobles.

Table of Contents
The novel starts with the city of Elantris falling into a state of complete and utter disrepair. The once-mighty capital of Arelon is now inhabited by only the sick and the dying, as the elven population has all but disappeared.
The story then introduces us to our three main characters: Raoden, the prince of Arelon; Sarene, the princess of Teod; and Hrathen, a high priest of Fjordell. All three are caught up in the political machinations of their respective countries, but their paths converge when Raoden is exiled to Elantris.
In Elantris, Raoden begins to put together a community of outcasts, teaching them to work together and helping them to find a modicum of happiness in their lives. Sarene, meanwhile, has come to Arelon for Raoden’s wedding, only to find that he has been exiled. Hrathen, sent by the oppressive Fjordell Empire to convert Arelon to their religion, starts to have doubts about his mission.
