Draegloths are half-demon, half drow monstrosities in the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, particularly the Forgotten Realms campaign setting.

Publication history[edit]

The draegloth first appeared in third edition for the Forgotten Realms setting in Monsters of Faerûn (2001), under the "half-fiend" heading.[1] The draegloth appeared in Champions of Ruin (2005) as a player character character race.[2] The draegloth, along with the draegloth favored one and draegloth overseer, appeared in Drow of the Underdark (2007).[3]

Description[edit]

Draegloths are created by the unholy union between an ascending high priestess of the drow goddess Lolth and a glabrezu.

They are about ten feet tall and have four arms, the upper arms being much larger than the lower ones. They have large claws on the upper arms and they use them for hand-to-hand combat, for they usually prefer the feeling of tearing flesh and sinew under their claws and fangs. Their face is stretched so it resembles that of a dog. Their flesh is as dark as a drow's, and they are covered in a fine coat of fur; they also have a white mane. They are sacred creatures to the Lolthites and are usually treated with respect.

Triel Baenre of Menzoberranzan, in the Forgotten Realms, had a draegloth son, Jeggred.
