Bladen'Kerst Baenre was a daughter of Yvonnel Baenre and a high priestess of Lolth.[1]


Bladen'Kerst was known for her sadism and cruelty, as well as her lack of recognition for the protocols of drow society. Those traits led her mother to keep her in-house for fear that she would attempt to form her own house and succeed, fail, or disgrace her mother in the process. In the meantime, Bladen'Kerst was kept busy by terrorizing the house males.[1]


Bladen'Kerst was killed by Gandalug Battlehammer, who strangled her with her own whip in 1358 DR.[2][3]


Bladen'kerst was the daughter of Yvonnel Baenre and the second-oldest daughter (after Triel Baenre) at home at House Baenre in the 1350s DR.[1]
