Shakti Hunzrin was a powerful Menzoberranyr traitor-priestess of Lolth and Vhaeraun. She hated Liriel Baenre, pursuing her across Faerun and trying to kill her several times, but she was not successful.[2]

DescriptionEdit

Shakti was solid by drow standards, even plump, and had hard red eyes.[3] She was nearsighted from birth, but in 1361 DR she was able to heal herself by the power of Lolth and Vhaeraun.[4]

PersonalityEdit

Shakti had no sense of humor.[5]

Shakti's greatest passion was rothe farming -- she was in charge of House Hunzrin's rothe herds on the Isle of Rothe in Lake Donigarten.[6] In fact, she didn't really want to be a priestess originally, but she appreciated the power it gave her.[7]

HistoryEdit

While seeking revenge against her rival Liriel, Shakti approached Nisstyre, a known follower of Vhaeraun, and offered to become a "traitor priestess" serving both Lolth and Vhaeraun and offering her services to Nisstyre.[8]

In 1361 DR, Shakti was ordained a high priestess, despite having not completed all her years at Arach-Tinilith.[9]

By 1484 DR, Shakti had become matron mother of House Hunzrin, the Eleventh House. She was strongly allied with House Barrison Del'Armgo.[1]

PossessionsEdit

Shakti's weapon of choice, like that of her family, was an enchanted pitchfork, although she later relied more on her snake-headed whip conferred upon her when she became a high priestess.[10]

AlliesEdit

Shakti allied herself with many others in her pursuit of Liriel, including Matron Mother Triel Baenre,[11] Gromph Baenre,[11] Nisstyre and the Dragon's Hoard,[11] the illithid Vestress of Ascarle,[2] High Captain Rethnor of Luskan,[2] and Gorlist.[2]
