Noble Drow

Noble drow are typically clerics (Which can only be female) and wizards who follow the dark path of Lolth. They are extremely Matriarchal.

Physical Description:
Ebon skinned and usually slender with white hair and red, purple or green eyes. They don't generally pass five feet, eleven inches in height.

Noble drow are the ruling caste in the drow cities. They belong to the ruling families and spend much of their time looking over their shoulders and stabbing others in the back in order to increase their own rankings within their family heirarchy which begins with the Matron Mother of the house and then filters down from the oldest daughter to the Patron of the house and then the oldest to youngest sons. Any non-drow are typically frowned down upon greatly and are only kept around if they are useful in some way.

Drow as a whole are met with hatred and disdain. Noble drow? Even more so. These drow are even worse than the commoners their society is built upon and they are feared as much as they are despised. They despise elves and worshipers of Corellon Larethian with a passion.


Primarily, for wealth and power. To better themselves and their abilities to suit their own ends.
