In the Demon Spawn War (8972 GE - 9493 GE), Lolth rose to the angelic rank of a Firre. For part of this conflict, she served under the solar Sehanine who in turn served the archangel Corellon. Lolth was stationed on the world Kriav, overseeing operations in the region Morangrel. In the Battle of Belevreth, General Lolth and her army of wood elves were surrounded by three demon armies. Rather than be annihilated, the demon commander met with Lolth and promised safe passage from the field on the condition that her army sit out the rest of the war and that Lolth become their prisoner. Remarkably, the demons stuck to their word but Lolth was to suffer such torture that she broke and became something like her captors. While she was captive, some of her elves, now being called the Drow by Kriav's other elves, began to worship her. She answered the calls of her female worshipers, guiding them and the Drow to the safety of Kriav's Underdark.

Lolth's favoritism to the female species is said to have come about during her captivity. During this time, and before she was able too gain the favor of the demon lord Goul'lumin, she was violated many times. The fate of these demons was sealed though, because when she was freed by Goul'lumin she went on a murder spree, stalking each of them and killing them very slowly.

Lloth has taken a heavy hand with the drow, helping mortals in more ways than most other higher powers. As a result, she has been censured several times by The Balance. Her most recent assistance to her mortal supplicants happened in the Second Epoch when she provided primordial magic to the Eldalweril. This led to the creation of Entropic Eddies in areas of the High Wood Country.

Lolth is the self-proclaimed Queen of the Demonweb Pits. She is the patron deity of most drow matriarchal societies.
