Grasp of Orcus
A junior drow priestess who helped imprison the Evening Group at Velkynvelve
A junior drow priestess under Ilvara’s guidance, Asha initially considered Ilvara an example to emulate. That changed after she saw how Ilvara treated Jorlan Duskryn, a seasoned drow warrior who was the commander’s lover up until he was badly wounded. Ilvara discarded Jorlan without a second though, showing Asha the foolishness of expecting any reward for loyalty.
Asha was ambitious enough to know she could assume command of the outpost if anything were to happen to Ilvara, but not courageous enough to challenge her superior openly. She also knows that she would have to impress her superiors in Menzoberran for any such field promotion to become permanent. As such, Asha moved cautiously, fanning the fires of Jorlan’s hatred while keeping her own hands clean of any plotting.
Abrioxiell unwittingly helped Asha assume command of the outpost when he killed Ilvara. Now, Asha will stop at nothing to recapture the escaped prisoners, so that she can demonstrate to her superiors that she is more competent than her predecessor.
