The Lone Survivor of a Banished House


Use the stats for Mindshard (Drow of the Underdark, page 163) for Jhalefein.


Jhalefein is a male drow with long nails and terrible scars across his partially bald head and throat. He cannot speak above a whisper.

Jhalefein served House Eilservs in Erelhei-Cinlu, the infamous Vault of the Drow on Oerth. When that House’s matron, Eclavdra, forsook Lolth and embraced the Elder Elemental Eye, Erelhei-Cinlu was plunged into civil war. Jhalefein was almost killed by a mind flayer, but was saved by a comrade, who fell in battle shortly thereafter. With the House crumbling all around him, Jhalefein fled through a portal to Sigil.

He recently hired Tulio to steal a priceless diadem from Alantavra.

Jhalefein believes himself to be the only survivor of House Eilservs, and has dedicated his life to destroying the victors of the civil war, House Tormtor. Half-mad and paranoid, he shuns contact with others, save for when they might serve his mission.
