Drow are on of the sub-races of Elvish culture, they also go by the names of Dark Elf, and Black Elf. Like all Elves their ancestors originally came from Alfheim, though in their prehistory their ancestors travelled to the world of Svartalfheim first before coming to Earth. They are a cruel people with a tendency to want to dominate and many of their kind exist in the Underdark due to aversion to sunlight. They live in families and clans, and the majority of the Underdark Drow are led by a matriarch. These same beings worship a spider goddess called Lolth, though others follow other dark gods like Loki, Khaine or She Who Thirsts. Each Elf is long lived and mature as fast as humans, except their definition is somewhat different relying more on insight and experience. They usually live for 750 years or more. This allows them to have a love of variety in life and care generally more neutral or chaotic in approach, though though with the Drow they are evil to the core, looking to enslave other races and bring darkness to all. Because of this they are usually vied as good. When fully grown they have an average height of between 5 and 6 ft tall, making them Medium height. They have a number of abilities inherited for their ancestors including (in this case Superior Darkvision (120 ft), and Keen Senses (proficiency in Perception). It seems they are descended of the Fey, and have contact with both the Feywild and both the Seelie & Unseelie Courts. This gives them the advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can't put them to sleep. It also allows them to enter a trance where they can maintain it for 4 hours and gain the same advantage as an 8 hour long rest.   Drow can be very persuasive, and have +1 Charisma (already included in Ability Scores), and have Sunlight Sensitivity (they have disadvantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight , when target an opponent with an attack, or what ever they are trying to perceive in direst sunlight. They have access to Drow Magic in the form of the Dancing Lights Cantrip, and at 3rd level Faerie Fire spell once per day, and at 5th level the Darkness spell once a day. They get this ability back after a long rest, and use Charisma for casting. They make use of weapon training since youth under Drow Weapon Training, getting proficiency with rapiers, shortswords and hand crossbows.
