Once a priestess of a high house in Eryndlyn, forces of House Melarn captured Danifae during a skirmish between the cities Eryndlyn and Ched Nasad. House Melarn captured and enslaved her due to her striking beauty. Matron Melarn gave Danifae to her eldest daughter Halisstra as a maidservant and pet. Although Danifae absolutely loathed her captors and deeply resented her status, she was only a single unarmed slave in the middle of a strong house many hundreds of miles from her home city. More to the point, a magic locket around her neck ensured her loyalty by preventing Danifae from harming Halisstra.
Physically and magically deterred from any hope of escape, Danifae elected to play a subtle waiting game, slowly worming her way deeper into Halisstra’s confidences with years of faithful service and clever advice, all the while dreaming of the day when she would exact vengeance for her degrading situation. She reveled in the destruction of Ched Nasad and fall of House Melarn, although she was careful not to show it; the power Halisstra wielded through the magic locket still endured, and Danifae did not dare to let Halisstra know the depths of her hate. Thus, as Halisstra accompanied Quenthel and the rest of the Menzoberranyr in their flight from the city’s ruin and the continuation of their quest for Lolth, Danifae had no choice but to accompany her mistress.
In the company’s subsequent travels, Danifae quickly realized that Halisstra lived only at Quenthel Baenre’s sufferance. Therefore, in order to gain power over her mistress and to insure herself against any more reversals of fortune, Danifae seduced Quenthel, while convincing Halisstra that she was doing so only in order to strengthen Halisstra’s hand against the Menzoberranyr. At first, Danifae considered only how she might bring about Halisstra’s destruction. As she accompanied the Menzoberranyr all the way to the depths of the Demonweb Pits, however, and saw Halisstra fall by the wayside, Danifae realized that Lolth’s Silence offered not only a challenge to the drow, but an opportunity – an opportunity far more important than obtaining vengeance against a former mistress.
Danifae is young (for a drow) and strikingly beautiful. Her demure attitude hides a cold, calculating, and purely evil dark elf who understands that subtlety and patience are weapons far more deadly than mere steel and spell.
Death: Died fighting against a Yochol
