Physical Description: Drow are similar in stature to humans but share the slender build and features of elves, including the distinctive long, pointed ears. Their eyes lack pupils and are usually solid white or red. Drow skin ranges from coal black to a dusky purple. Their hair is typically white or silver, though some variation is not unknown. A drow’s appearance is meticulously designed to present information to those that understand what they are looking for. Dress, hairstyle, and posture all relate information to an onlooker. The most sacred adornment to drow appearance is the ritualistic scars that adorn their bodies. Most drow choose to hide their scars from outsiders eyes using clothing which is why many drow are seen completely covered even in warm climates. The chemicals used in the scarification process permanently dye the drow’s skin in a range of colors giving an artistic look to the finished product. Other races who have seen a drow’s scars have made the comparison to tattoo’s but they do not understand the ritualistic symbolism inherent in the process and a drow would never correct this mistake.

Society: Blah, Blah, Blah

Lands: Drow have no lands of their own nor do they seem interested in claiming any. They mostly reside within the walls of the cities of The Elven Federation.

Religion/Mysticism: Drow represent the extreme of deific devotion. Almost all drow worship their fey goddess The Lady of Chains. While only a few drow can claim to be a Cleric of their chosen mistress all drow believe that any power granted to them is through her will.
