Lorynäe Anarivon
Drow%20Queen.jpg

Supreme leader of the Dark-Elves and a former princess and royal priestess of the Ectharë court at Elutheria. In 537/2, Lorynäe and her followers attempted to overthrow the Silvar Elf-realm of Ectharë by murdering King Starion Alessarë. She was unsuccessful, and was banished from Ectharë, along with all her followers. In the centuries that followed, Lorynäe and her followers waged unrelenting warfare against the Silvar-Elves, in what came to be called the War of Wrath. In 1541/2, at the climactic Battle of Grôn, Lorynäe and all her folk were finally defeated and driven from the surface to dwell in the Underdark.

EARLY LIFE


Lorynar grew pu in the eastern elvish city of Saravosh. From early childhood she sought divine powers and became intensely spiritual and religious.

HIGH PRIESTESS


As Lorynae's powers increased, she began to attract many followers among the elves. Her group became known as the Ka'Narr; the Order of the Spider, and its followers soon numbered in the tens of thousands.

WAR LEADER


After Lorynae was defeated in her attempt to steal the Elvish throne, she fled the capitol of Elutheria to her home city of Saravosh. Once there she orchestrated a long military campaign against the Elves of Ecthare, she established a new elvish realm east of the Saugreth-Muir Mountains called Drothare, and for nearly a millennia thereafter, the two elven kingdoms were forever at war with one another.

TRANSFORMATION INTO DEITY


At some point during the War of Wrath, Lorynae underwent a transformation into a living goddess; from thence on, she became known as Lolth; the spider-queen.
