Handmaidens of the Spider Queen
The Handmaidens of the Spider Queen is an order of female crusaders with no permanent ties to any individual city. Also known as the Daughters of the Yochlol, the Handmaidens serve as instruments of Lolth’s will in times when the Spider Queen needs to bring an entire city into line. At least three times in recorded history the Handmaidens of the Spider Queen have assaulted and destroyed an entire dark elven city that threatened to drift from Lolth’s web of chaos. When not assembled into an army of chaos and vengeance, the Handmaidens work in small companies scattered throughout the Underdark, harassing merchant trains that look to other deities for protection and conducting hit-and-run raids on cities ruled by the clergy of other deities.
Because of descending from Lolth herself…this group of female drow have been experimenting with a new breed of slave assassins. After capturing Delad they put him through their experimentation process. This was to create a slave assassin that would be as effective as a drow, but not look like one. Basically to hide them amongst the enemy until the time is right. His handler, Talebrina, was his direct contact.
