Cruel and cunning, Undrin are a dark reflection of the elven race. Also called drow, they dwell deep underground in elaborate cities shaped from the rock of enormous caverns. Drow seldom make themselves known to surface folk, preferring to remain legends while advancing their sinister agendas through proxies and agents. Drow have no love for anyone but themselves, and are adept at manipulating other creatures. While they are not born evil, malignancy is deep-rooted in their culture and society, and nonconformists rarely survive for long.
Drow skin ranges from coal black to a dusky purple. Their hair is typically white or silver, though some variation is not unknown.
Undrin society is traditionally class-oriented and matriarchal. Male drow usually fulfill martial roles, defending the species from external threats, while female drow assume positions of leadership and authority. Reinforcing these gender roles, one in 20 drow are born with exceptional abilities and thus considered to be nobility, and the majority of these special drow are female. Noble houses define drow politics, with each house governed by a noble matriarch and composed of lesser families, business enterprises, and military companies. Drow are strongly driven by individual self-interest and advancement, which shapes their culture with seething intrigue and politics, as common drow jockey for favor of the nobility, and the nobility rise in power through a combination of assassination, seduction, and treachery.
The Undrin mainly worship the Goddess Lolth. In their early years Drow worshiped many demons lords and sought their guidance in the dark places of the world, Lolth was the most popular of these demon and was able to brake away from the Abyss after gaining enough power from the worship of the Undrin and their many slaves. She immediately put down the worship of all other demon lords and become their Matron Deity. She does allow the worship of other gods, so long as they are not of demon heritage. Nerull and Torog are popular and many Undrin cities have shrines to both dark deities.
Recently the Undrin have been in engulfed in a savage war with the rat like Scaven. Neither side has been able to gain the underhand and ruler ship of the underdark is yet to be decided.
