The Drow, also called Dark Elves, were not always as they are today. They once lived on the surface with the other elves, mostly in the hotter regions of the south. They were called "Lil'Ilythiiri", meaning "Elves of the South". During the Elven Wars Araushnee bade her followers to rise up against her husband Correllon, Creator and God of all Elves. For this Araushnee was banished and became the goddess we now know as Lolth. Her followers were banished as well, and became the elves we now call "drow".
After their descent into the Underdark, they were renamed 'the drow'. The original term was "Dhaerow", an elven word meaning "traitor". It was later shortened to "Drow" by the humans.
