A younger son of one of the great noble houses of the Drow, Arturios is a powerful warrior and a devoted servant of the cruel god Hextor. His contempt for non-Drow races is only matched by his contempt for Drow of other houses – he is loyal to Ellethrain through and through, and will happily kill or murder the enemies of his god or house.
Recently, however, his house has been sliding somewhat in favour, and this has emboldened a lesser house, the Devowshi, to plan a well-coordinated series of attacks and treachery against house Ellethrain. Arturios was a victim of one such attack, spirited away after being drugged by the unscrupulous Drangell. Whether or not he can manage to extricate himself from the perilous situation he has awoken in (prey for a sacred hunting ritual of the wild god Kurnous) remains to be seen.
