Earlier this year, in the article discussing the origins of the dark fate of the Queen of Air and Darkness, we discussed the dark god of the underdark as being the mastermind behind it all.

In an unexpected trap, the unnamed Fey sister of Titania was corrupted by the mysterious Night Diamond. This strange artifact not only took her physical form, but it turned her against her sister and the Seelie Court and drove her to steal the ‘treasures of the Arcana’. She now holds court of her own in either another part of the Feywild or, as older editions state, in Pandemonium.
What starts here will probably continue into a series of articles; laying out an investigation I did when studying the varying courts of the Fey. It was not my intention to get stuck down the rabbit hole of this particular Fey Goddess, but, as it is with most of my obsessive research, it was as inevitable as it was impossibly deep. This is the chronicles of a deep dive that I have not returned fully from yet.
