Danira Mournbringer was born into a family of powerful sorcerers of Drow Nobility, their blood long ago mingled with spirits from the shadow plane.
As a Drow, Danira was already extremely evil and cruel, but to make things worse, she was bored. So very, very bored.
One day, she stole a special set of lenses of darkness, and decided to see what kind of excitement the surface world held, hoping to ease her boredom.
She came upon a party of adventurers, who seemed none too bright by her measure. She convinced them that she was an exile of her land, who had renounced the evil ways of her people, and sought to be a champion of good. Surprisingly, they bought it.
She kept up the charade for a couple years, having great adventures and growing in power, reveling in just how far she could carry on her deception.
The party became more advanced, and finally they accepted a dangerous mission to purge the land of an evil Lich, at the behest of their king. But by this point, Danira was bored yet again. She had other plans.
As the adventure continued, Danira struck a secret pact with the Lich they sought. She would not only lead the party to him, but beforehand she would help to completely break them, so as to ensure an easy victory for the Lich.
And so, Danira, having earned the trust of her party so thoroughly, allowed herself to be kidnapped by the Lich's minions.
While the party undertook a quest to find and rescue her, she led a group of the Lich's minions to the party's hometown. And then she proceeded to slaughter their families, friends, and everyone else in the town in a glorious night of bloodshed.
The party, ignorant of the horrors that transpired, made a bold last attempt to attack the Lich and rescue Danira. When they arrived, they found the heads of their loved ones and friends mounted on spikes in the Lich's lair.
As predicted, they were broken and devastated. And then Danira helped the Lich destroy them all. Except the one Rogue, who got away.
The Rogue, distraught with grief, went to the King with news of the tragedy, and the King summoned numerous magicians to destroy the Lich and bring Danira to justice.
Danira was hunted and chased, and frequently killed her pursuers with absolute delight. But then the Rogue managed to steal her lenses and led her into a trap of lights set by the magicians.
Blinded, she was subdued by enchanted devices that kept her from casting her spells, and continually exposed her to bright lights, weakening and incapacitating her.
When the Rogue asked her why she did it, she laughed wildly and replied, "Because it was fun, darling!" And then she was carried away.
The Lich vanished, whereabouts currently unknown.
