Iggwilv, planning her domination of evil[[1]]

Beloved and hated of Graz'zt, Matriarch of Diabolists, Mother of Iuz, Daughter of Baba Yaga, Apprentice of Zagig, the Witch-Queen of Perrenland and author of the Demononmicon, Iggwilv currently dwells with her apprentices in the Grey Wastes of Hades. Iggwilv is an archmage, her apprentices, arcanaloths, and her guard dogs linnorms, so her privacy is impressive.
