Nevarra: The Age of Peace
The Dark Matrons
The Dark Elf Matriarchy, is compromised of the most powerful or Influential of the drow. Officially there are four matrons who rule over the four main clans of drow, there is however one unofficial member of the decision making process and it is not a woman, he is Patriarch Ylavu. He has fought for equality among the drow and has gained moderate success probably due to the fact that all four of the matrons have at one time or another been “acquainted” In true drow fashion he has bribed, extorted, and poisoned his way to the top. Even equality is bloody struggle in drow society. Little is honestly known about the drow decision making process to outsiders and it will likely not change anytime soon.
