Not all drow follow the path of evil. Some of them seek to return to the days of innocence and goodness, and follow Eilistraee, the Dark Maiden. She leads them in revels under the full moon, where they shed the weight of the evil years under her purifying lead.

Eilistraee's moody and somber when she's not dancing, for she loves beauty and peace. When she's denied this, or when someone harms one of her faithful, a wild passion of anger ignites in her. Though she's usually subtle and understated, Eilistraee can act with precisely crazed abandon.

She rules the realm of Svartalfheim in Ysgard, some say with Erevan Ilesere at her side. It's a realm of caves and drow, but there's a feeling of peace and love that permeates the tunnels, even in the heart of Ysgard. Her proxy is Ingrid Liansdottir, a high-up in the berg of Yggwyd - Svartalfheim's center of shrines and spirits. A drow with a shining heart, Ingrid has the power to make her curses come true, and her voice is as seductive as that of a sirine.
