Drava lived in Szith Morcane until it fell to fiendish fire giants. She led eight companions to Cormanthor. There, however, she fell under the madness of the demon lord Graz'zt and started to dance and drink
Some adventurers (members of the Harpers hired by Elanil Elassidil to bring peace to her ancestor Meira Faerenduil) tried to convinced Drava and her companions to go to a refugee camp but she never complied and in the end she was defeated.
Drava fell completely to Graz'zt's madness, in particular giving herself over to hedonistic impulses, drinking and singing. She was fearful of surface-dwellers, convinced that any meeting would inevitably end in bloodshed.
