Getting to know 5th Edition
A subrace of Elf and often referred to as drow, they have inky black skin and white hair. According to legend, long ago they dwelt at harmony with the rest of Elvenkind, but then Inyen lured them into committed all forms of abominable acts. The elves fought against their fallen brethren, eventually driving them into the Underdark where they have lived ever since. Over the ages, they have adapted to their new home, growing cruel and vicious to such an extent that all fear them on reputation alone. They have a special hatred for any surface elf, as they insist that they were wronged long ago and driven into the dark unjustly.
