Sylkress Auvryndar was a drow member of House Auvryndar in the drow settlement in the Sargauth Level in Undermountain in the early 1490s DR.[1]


Sylkress was a priestess of Lolth and a daughter of Matron Mother Vlonwelv Auvryndar.[2]

In 1492 DR,[note 1] Sylkress believed her lover Narizmar Do'ett had betrayed her by swearing loyalty to another female and decided to torture him to find out who. (In truth, it was Narizmar himself who had spread the rumor to prove his loyalty to Sylkress under torture.)[1]


If in fear for her life, Sylkress could divulge precious information to her assailants.[1]


Sylkress was in love with Narizmar. She had a twin sister Melith Auvryndar, currently in the Twisted Caverns.[1]


Sylkress kept herself busy with the water torture of her former lover Narizmar. The two of them enjoyed this.[1]




  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).
