An Eye of Lolth, Also Loyal to House Tormtor


Use the stats for Treason (Expedition to the Demonweb Pits, page 163) for Alantavra.


Alantavra was a beautiful drow female. Her chain shirt and robes were cut to flatter her figure, and she frequently checked her appearance in her ornate hand mirror. She considered Common a base tongue and only spoke it when she had no choice (she also had a thick accent in that tongue).

Alantavra was an Eye of Lolth, a priestess who served to insure that other drow were loyal to the Spider Queen. Instrumental in securing House Tormtor’s victory in the recent civil war in Erelhei-Cinlu, she was sent to Sigil in search of Jhalefein.

Somehow, Jhalefein found her first, and hired Tulio to steal a diadem given to Alantavra by the House matron. Alantavra’s assassin Xillian captured Tulio, bringing her closer to recovering her prize.

Alantavra was killed by our heroes at the Crystal Tower of the Yochlols, in the Demonweb Pits.

Though loyal to House Tormtor, Alantavra’s first allegiance was to Lolth. Like most drow, she was without principle, and would do whatever she must to survive, and to gain power.
