his increasing fame (or infamy) across the Sword Coast North as a drow
who dwells on the surface, is deadly in battle, fights with great agility
and two enchanted scimitars, and can call on an onyx panther figurine
of wondrous power to bring a battle companion to his side, Drizzt
DoUrden remains an enigma.
Mielikki and makes war on the cruel city of his birth (Menzoberranzan),
his fellow drow, and all who serve Lolth. He counts as friends human warriors
of the North (Wulfgar and Cattie-brie) and the dwarf Bruenor Battlehammer,
whom he helped to regain the rulership of Mithral Hall. He has slain dragons
and drow matron mothers. He defied fiends (Errtu) and powers (Lolth),
battled perhaps the most deadly assassin currently active in Faerûn (Artemis
Entreri), and sought to forge his own life on the surface.
and sensitive to others, Drizzt holds himself to the highest ideals but
does not expect the same of others. Ever alert for treachery and danger,
he speaks little but is apt to be polite (if terse) in his dealings. A
perfectionist who yearns to be accepted into places and groups and to
make friends widely, Drizzt is haunted by the danger he brings to those
he befriends thanks to the scrutiny of Lolth and his other foes (notably
Errtu and Entreri). Those he meets see his manner as grim.
in his surface travels, Alustriel welcomed him as warmly and personally
as she does all in need, but dared not let him openly into Silverymoon
at that time. His deeds have, very slowly, made Drizzt DoUrden more
welcome in the Sword Coast North.
