Her clerics are predominantly female and the cult of Lolth teaches that females are superior to males, which has led to the forming of matriarchies in drow societies. She is the mother of Eilistraee, who opposes her.
Lolth was formerly known as Araushnee, the elven goddess of destiny and the mate of Corellon chief god of the elves. She grew power-hungry and a sense of greed and cruelty entered into her mind and she began plotting against the other elven gods. In the end her schemes were revealed, Araushnee was stripped of her powers, turned into a spider-demon and stricken to the Abyss. It took her many years, but eventually Lolth returned to power, becoming the chief goddess the drow.
