Draegloths were half-demon, half-drow monstrosities. They are created by the "unholy union" of a glabrezu and a newly-ordained high priestess of the drow goddess Lolth.[2]

DescriptionEdit

Draegloths were 7.5 to 8 feet tall.[3][4] They had four arms: large claws on the upper arms and humanoid hands on the lower arms. Their faces were stretched so that they resembled that of a dog. Their flesh was as black and covered in a fine coat of white fur. They had a yellow-whitish mane of hair on their head.[2]

Draegloths were immune to poisons, as well as sleep-inducing spells and effects, and they are resistant to most elemental energy.[2]

CombatEdit

Draegloths use their upper arms for hand-to-hand combat, delighting in the carnage and death they can cause in melee. As such, they wade into battle without fear, and hold little consideration for tactics; though not unintelligent, Draegloths are impatient when it comes to slaughtering their prey.[2]

SocietyEdit

Draegloths are often seen as a sign of favour from Lolth.[6] They are sacred creatures to the Lolthites and are usually treated with respect. Draegloths are perhaps the only variety of half-fiend that are created regularly and intentionally by a mortal race.[2]

HistoryEdit

During the Silence of Lolth, some draegloths, formerly unquestionably loyal to the matriarchs, went off on their own, abandoning or even betraying their mothers and demanding equal status.[7]

Notable draeglothsEdit
