Subraces

Physiology

Accustomed to living beneath the ground, the drow are a rather peculiar breed of elves. Perhaps due to the lack of nutrients from the sunlight, their growth appears somewhat stunted, with the tallest drow of equal height to the average human. Their build tends to be lithe and athletic, rather than muscular. Because of this and the fact that the drow are highly intelligent, many excel with magic or stealth. Of course, this does not mean that drow warriors do not exist. In fact, House Kilndar plays host to some of the strongest drow warriors to have ever set foot in Quellyr.

Psychology

Drow are a cold, calculating, and cruel race of creatures. They will often turn their backs on their closest friends and relatives if there is something to gain. Because of this, procreation of their race is rarely out of love. Strength and power, along with the will to dominate, is the mindset of every drow, men, women, and children alike. Whether it is adult or child, the weak are culled from the herd for the better of society.

Society

Despite their patron deity, the drow society is matriarchal. The city is ruled by three houses, all of which have proved time and time again to be the strongest of Quellyr's families - albeit that term is used loosely. If a house of lesser standing succeeds in killing the matron of the house before it, then that house will lose its rank while the dominating house takes its place.

Religion

The patron deity of the drow is Svast, and thus it is in his honor that the temple in Quellyr was built. However, not all drow seek favor with the God of Deception. Some drow, more notably from houses of lesser standing (excluding House Kilndar), choose to take up other followings.
