Lloth, or more commonly the Queen of Spiders, was once a powerful Drow warrior who ascended to godhood through subterfuge. It was through her actions that the events of the Third Cataclysm occurred and why the Underdark is considered so treacherous. She bids her time, waiting to take her fight above ground.
As one of her early agents, Joyus was born from Lloth and taken above ground. Though in recent times, Joyus has rejected her mother's decrees and forged her own path. Lloth also had a dangerous interaction with Lyra Seroi, which cost Lyra's life, but wounded Lloth greatly. She has also found an ancient warrior of the Primal God Ludrici and with his help, plans to bring the god back from the brink of death.
