Drow, the apex civilization of the Underdark, these denizens of the lightless caverns beneath the soil have been honed to near physical perfection by the trials of everyday life thousands of miles underground. They are gifted and knowledgeable in many varying arts from combat and weapon expertise to dark rituals and spells. They dwell in vast caverns large enough for their dangerously beautiful cities that reflect their dangerous and trial ridden lives. These stealthy, sinuous dark elves are a direct counterpart to their surface-dwelling cousins and thus are more violent and mistrusting than any other elf you might meet. Loathe to trust, hard to befriend, and quick to kill drow are as much in danger within their own cities as they are outside. They live in a chaotic society that hides behind a semblance of order where murder and espionage are rewarded so long as there are no witnesses.
Drow make excellent companions for those seeking protection. Highly adept at annihilating most potential threats, having a Drow is like employing your very own private guard. Furthermore, because they are expert practitioners of the Dark Arts, female Drow can also serve as mentors – offering knowledge on the intricacies of baneful magick.
