Lolth; the Demon Queen of Spiders, is the chief deity of the Dark-Elves.


Also known as the "Spider Queen" and the "Queen of the Demonweb Pits," Lolth is a demon lord and a goddess worshipped by the Drow (some myths propose that she was originally a elven priestess who was transformed into a demon). She displays formidable power and great cruelty with an affection for arachnids.

Lolth is the Goddess of Darkness, Dark-Elves, and Spiders, Lolth has, through deceit and domination, garnered the ears of the Dark -Elves and eventually established herself as their foremost deity, keeping them under her thumb by creating a society in which only the strong survive and her priestesses rule society. Her symbol is a black spider with the head of a female drow

Lolth appears in one of two forms: drow and arachnid. In drow form, the Spider Queen appears as an "exquisitely beautiful" female dark elf, sometimes covered in clinging spiders. In her arachnid form, Lolth takes the appearance of a giant black widow spider with the head of a female drow or human peering from between the eight spider-eyes. Sometimes, the two foremost pair of her spider-legs are actually humanoid arms.

Lolth dwells in the Abyss; within her divine realm of the Demonweb Pits. Her realm is a horrific region forged entirely from a single great fractal web, where she is served by legions of powerful mystical slaves. Lolth's residence within this realm is a massive iron spider-shaped stronghold.

The Demonweb Pits are located on the 66th layer of the Abyss.
