Adept (of the Silent Blades)

Drow assassins from the Silent Blades


''I am Adept. Not worthy of help.''
— scribbles by Slythe

Composing the bulk of the Silent Blades' forces, the Adepts are highly trained assassins who work in small groups under the command of a leader to eliminate anyone who the government of Archana wishes to get rid of.


Adepts must have completed their training as Initiates before they can begin going out on contracts.


An Initiate must be at least 15 years old to be considered ready to move up the ranks.


Once every requirement is met, the Master puts the Initiates together on a new squad or spread them in the others, officializing their status as Adepts.


Adepts have no other responsibilities except for training and killing, and both are supervised by their respective Veterans.

Accoutrements & Equipment

Once a part of a squad, each Adept receives a uniform and a pair of daggers, all of which they will carry for the rest of their lives and tend to by themselves.

Grounds for Removal/Dismissal

Death or ranking up are the only ways a Drow can lose this title. They can't the demoted nor can they be expelled from the Blades, in their culture death is the only alternative for more serious transgressions.


The Adept rank has existed informally since the birth of the order, in 301 AE. Later on, with the creation the the Veterans, Adepts began working in small set groups, the squads. Since then, not much has changed.

Cultural Significance

Not unlike the Initiates, Adepts are treated as lesser beings, much like slaves. They exist only to serve and kill for the order, not to think nor to seek greater things.
