Seyll Auzkovyn was a drow high priestess of Eilistraee and advisor to Lord Dessaer of Elventree in Cormanthor.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Seyll was young, less than 100 years old in 1372 DR. She wore a lady's riding outfit with a knee-length skirt and a green jacket over a cream blouse. She also had matching knee-high boots.[4] She wore mail marked with the symbol of Eilistraee and bore a sword enchanted against evil with a hilt that formed a working flute.[5]

HistoryEdit

Seyll was a former high priestess of Lolth who converted to Eilistraee.[2]

It was implied that one of the reasons Seyll converted was becauser her daughter had been killed as part of some senseless test provided by Lolth.[6] It was implied that one of the reasons Seyll converted was because her daughter had been killed as part of some senseless test provided by Lolth.[6] What prevented her from joining the clergy of Vhaeraun which was not only the mainstream deity among the drow of Clan Auzkovyn[7] but also the deity her brother Szorak Auzkovyn was a cleric of[8] wasn’t clear. Given that she favored Lolth, a deity who considered females to be inherently superior,[9] instead of Vhaeraun, a deity who stood for gender equality,[10] enough to kill her daughter to please the Spider Queen,[6] and her course of action after it being to join a group of followers of Eilistraee who physically assaulted their male fellows for trying to join the Evensong-ritual,[11] allowed the speculation, that she couldn't bear the idea the idea of considering males as her equals.[speculation]

In 1372 DR, the houseless Lolthite priestess Halisstra Melarn was captured by the forces of Elventree. Seyll attempted to convert Halisstra to her faith by introducing a... and placing a measure of unexpected trust in her. That trust was partially misguided, as Halisstra slew Seyll on the way to an Eilistraeean gathering, but Halisstra remembered her experience with Seyll and later converted to the worship of Eilistraee.[12][13]

Halisstra had a vision of Seyll that prompted her to begin seeking the Crescent Blade in order to kill Lolth.[14]

Seyll's spirit appeared to Halisstra on the Astral Plane. Seyll had abandoned Arvandor for Eilistraee and for Halisstra. Seyll protected Halisstra from the return of Lolth. In the process, she was destroyed and sent to oblivion.[15]
