Merith Baenre was a drow priestess of House Baenre in Menzoberranzan.[1]


Merith once was the daughter of a street sweeper but her considerable clerical powers convinced Yvonnel Baenre to adopt Merith as her daughter.

Around 1361 DR, Merith was the second-most-powerful priestess of her House and Matron Mother Triel Baenre considered her for the next Mistress of Arach-Tinilith. However, Merith's poor capacity for protocol and intrigue and her extreme sadism changed Triel's mind and the Matron Mother searched for another candidate.[1]
