And the Pelorians can summon Lunes and Selenes. Yet the
Orlanthi do not recognize those as elements. So why should
the Pelorians recognize the appearance of an sylph, say, as
proof positive that storm is a basic element of the cosmos

On Dendara:

>Confusion gets worse. Sky or air?

No real difference from the Pelorian PoV. Likewise the
Orlanthi Storm Gods are considered to be _bad_ sky gods.
