Nightshade was the third son of a lesser noble in one of the many drow cities of the south. He was trained in the arts of murder, subterfuge and magic, becoming a proficient assassin. After one mission he returned to his Clan’s home to find his whole family dead by the hand of a rival house. In a fit of blind rage he attacked the enemy house killing many of the family before having to run. He fled the city and made his way north to a new start. He is not an evil person but he is not good either, he simply lives for tomorrow and dreams about the time were he can return to the south to finish his revenge.
