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



Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage


  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. Corroborating this, Dragon Heist page 20 refers to events of Death Masks (set in 1491 DR) as being "last year". 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).
