The zekyl (plural zekylyn; feminine zebeyl, plural zebylyn)[2] or halfshadow dragon drow, were an offshoot of the drow race.[3]

AbilitiesEdit

Zekyl were a version of half–shadow dragon drow and had all abilities of a half-dragon. They had an immunity against life-sapping effects and a lesser version of the shadow dragon's breath weapon that caused a life-sapping effect. Their distinctive feature was a pair of wings on their back that allowed them to fly faster than they could move on land; normally, only half-dragons of species larger than drow could have wings.[1][4]

Zekyl had a predisposition for the roguish arts.[3]

HistoryEdit

Zekyl was the name of the half-dragon offspring of Clan Jaezred's shadow dragons and the drow of Chaulssin, who were enslaved by the dragons. In 634 DR, the dragons were overthrown.[5]

In 734 DR, the now-free citizens of Chaulssin escaped to the Plane of Shadow to evade the armies of Menzoberranzan, who were bent on killing them for being heretics. On the Plane of Shadow, they were part of the founders of Chaul'mur'ssin. They learned of a way to divide their dragon and drow lineages, leading to the creation of the race of the drow-dragon. They returned in a meaningful number to Toril in 1136 DR.[5]

In 1372, the majority of the zekyl lived in Chaulssin[6] and formed the majority of the Jaezred Chaulssin's membership by a large margin.[7]
