Misconceptions about Drow
Most Common Misconceptions about Drow
1. As their relatives, the elves, drow have no hair from below their eyelashes. That means, they have no hair around the genitals nor hair for the beard!
2. In their language their is no word for "love", as we know it, and none came close. Overall, they can't really grasp the concept of love. Though, there are many words for "hate" and "death" and about 40 words to express the most delicate differences in meaning of "foe".
3. The version of "love" drow know is seen as weakness and has to be hidden. It is closely associated with "doom", which shows very nicely how drow are taught that love is a soft, twisted and dangerous thing. Love has driven Drow into madness. In fact, this feeling of weakness is also connected with hate, so that the object of their affection is hated as much as "loved". Mostly this ends up in abuse and in acting indifferent to each other.

of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
