Dawn of Darkness
Lolth is the goddess of the Drow, a chaotic evil deity who revels in chaos. She patterns her life and the lives of her worshippers on a regimen of chaotic acts and the veneration of spiders. The way that new-born spider broods tore each other apart to survive, she promotes her worshippers to kill their rivals, thus ensuring that they are the strongest of the ‘brood’.
She is a cruel and domineering,forcing her will upon her followers and her enemies, a will which instructs the strong to crush the weak in the most torturous way imaginable.
Lolth was formerly Araushnee, elven goddess of destiny, artisans and dark elves. She was the lover of Corellon Larethian but she grew power-hungry and a sense of never-before seen greed and cruelty entered into her mind.
She began aiding Corellon’s enemies and organised an attack on the entire Seldarine with her “Anti-Seldarine” consisting of Vhaeraun, Malar, Ghaunadaur, Gruumsh, Auril and a host of other gods of goblinoids. Despite their force of numbers, the anti-Seldarine were defeated.
Araushnee was banished to the Abyss and Corellon turned her into a bloated spider demon so that he could not be persuaded to reconsider his decision due to her beauty.
