Lore

In a darker time a brave weaponsmith ventured into questionable territory to claim special materials. All she got was enslaved by a cruel drow family. Spending years in the underdark, her only light coming from the forge she worked, she listened and learned much of drow magics and arcane methods. With no distractions she advanced quickly at her attempts to blend these talents with her own skills. One fateful night a hunting party returned with a brood of mindflayer bodies and she immediately called for one of the family elders and explained that she could use the mindflayer carcasses to harness their innate psionic powers to create weapons of twisted purpose. She was granted the corpses and they watched in the dark as she fought her way through the latent psionic bleed and felt her way through skinning, rending, carving, and twisting all the parts of these creatures she could suffer. In the end as the witnessing drow applauded her success at creating a bow and arrows from mindflayer parts, she sent the arrows towards those sounds and killed her way back above ground and threw the disgusting weapon and ammunition back into the darkness behind her hopefully to never have to see the world above. Though clearly she failed in burying her success as you hold it now. As you check the string's tension you can occasionally feel the cries in undercommon far in the back of your thoughts.
