Vault of the Drow
High Priestess of Lolth
The High Priestess of Lolth, Ygraine Xeliat, serves as the most powerful religious functionary in Yethendrin, presiding over spiritual law in the Vault of the Drow. Technically, all drow fall under her jurisdiction as the “faithful of Lolth”, and crimes between them (and some argue against them) are hers to punish as she deems fit. The High Priestess is surrounded by the College of Archpriestesses, who administrate different temples and functions, and vie for her position actively, occasionally uniting against her to keep her absolute power in check.
Though a candidate abdicates her loyalty to any one House when she ascends to the mantle of High Priestess of Lolth, vicious rumors and occasional complaints on the Council of Eight claim that she favors Xeliat—her birth house—above others.
