Those closest to us hurt us the most.
The spoiled eldest daughter of the powerful House Haitir, Shareece has never been accustomed to not getting her way. Since she was a small child she was gifted with the arcane and easily became a High Priestess of Lolth, although her power is sometimes more than she can control lashing out chaotically. Destroying small and weak Houses was a favourite past time of the Haitir Matron, Lady Vallen, and the destruction of a powerful House such as House Zehir was an exciting moment of Shareece’s life although she would not know the significance of this event until later. Not even 100 yet she found herself enamoured with one of the slaves taken from House Zehir and claimed him as her own. He became her play thing, a toy she kept close, as his exceptional appearance often made her the envy of other Females. As they grew close however she found he had more uses then his looks, displaying exceptional stealth and espionage skills and began to use him to eliminate those in her way. Getting greedy she even commanded that he kill her own mother in the night, making her the new house Matron, despite her young age. Despite herself she grew to trust her slave even learning his name, Taerin, and that he had actually been the eldest son of House Zehir before her family destroyed it. Together she made her way up through the ranks of Drow society finally becoming close with the Matriarch, and plotting to one day take her place. And yet at the peak of her victory it was then that betrayal led to her demise. After permitting him to be present during a meeting with the Matriarch and learning Lolth’s plan to reclaim the surface, including the blue prints to a monstrous device that will devastate the surface dwellers, Taerin betrayed her. He stole the blue prints from the Matriarch and escaped to warn the surface of their plans, leaving Shareece to deal with the outcome. The betrayal was a great blow to house Haitir, many lower Houses attempted to take them out, but their army was strong enough to survive. Shareece manage to convince the Matriarch that she would personally retrieve Taerin and the plans he stole, and has managed to keep her demise at bay. However time is running out and Taerin has proven more difficult to find than she thought. Furious the Matriarch has announced to all the Drow that any who can bring the escaped slave Taerin to her will become her heir and gifted great favour with Lolth. The race is on and Shareece is no closer to finding her lost slave.
