Melith Auvryndar was a drow member of House Auvryndar in Undermountain in the early 1490s DR.[1]


Melith led the Auvryndar offensive inside the Twisted Caverns and was waiting to challenge the victor of the conflict between the local aboleths and kuo-toa.[2] Melith's strategy was to first destroy the kuo-toa and later eliminate the aboleth, however she commanded only a few drow troops and did not have enough soldiers for large-scale-attacks.[1]

She was usually praying in front of a shrine of Lolth with her wife Thirza nearby.[1]


Melith was a priestess of Lolth and a daughter of Matron Mother Vlonwelv Auvryndar.[3]

In 1492 DR,[note 1] under orders of her elder sister T'rissa Auvryndar Melith lead a small Auryndar contingent inside the Twisted Caverns.[1]


Melith was frustrated to command only a few troops and to need to rely on T'rissa. For this, she welcomed adventurers that could change the situation in the level.[1]


Melith was in love with the drow mage Thirza, who however was more interested in prestige than Melith's love.[1] She was the twin sister of Sylkress Auvryndar.[4]




  1. Canon material does not provide a year for the events described in Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, but Christopher Perkins answered a question via Twitter and stated the year was 1492 DR. Unless a canon source contradicts this assertion, this wiki will use 1492 DR for events related to this sourcebook and Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (which is referenced on pages 5 and 98 of Dragon Heist).
