Drow Dreagolath


In the drow city of Menzoberranzan, the graduation of students from Arach-Tinilith is marked by a ritual of horrible depravity. The cornerstone of this ceremony of graduation is the conjuration of a glabrezu by a top-ranking student priestess and a coupling with the demon. The result of this ceremony, on rare occasions (perhaps once every decade), is the birth of a draegloth. The drow of Menzoberranzan view draegloths as a special blessing from Lolth, a sign of the fickle Spider Queen's favor on the young high priestess's family. That family often takes the draegloth as a sign that it is time to strike out at a rival family, and begins making its plans to exterminate a rival house. When those plans come to fruition, the draegloth is often a key factor in the success of the mission.
