Diva threw away the slave collar, and Ariel said nothing. Kyo tried to purchase Diva, and Ariel asked Diva if she wanted to go with Kyo. Ariel treats Diva as a free elf, Diva goes around calling herself free, so most people probably think that she's free, and taking into account that drow don't seem to keep any kind of legal registry or paperwork keeping track of who is a slave or not, if people around you think that you are free, then you are free.

Of course Ariel could claim that Diva is still a slave and re-enslave her, and nobody would give a shit, but Ariel could probably do that to any random commoner she finds by the street. Hell, any random Sarghess soldier could probably try to grab some poor commoner and claim it as a slave, and have a good chance to get away with it.

Diva may not have a slave collar, but she does have a slave's hairdo, ie, short hair. Still, Diva did refer to herself as Ariel's "employee" at least once. It should also be noted that the Sarghress clan IS leading the way in abolishing slavery. Something Ariel and Mel'narch both discussed shortly before the birth of Mel's most recent child.

Although it's not explicitly shown, the clans all do have some form of record keeping regarding who is and is not a slave. Grabbing commoners off the street and enslaving them, without cause, is a big no-no, even amongst the worst clans.Taking the slave of an overseer who was killed in battle, or in self defense, is a different story. The Black Sun mercenaries working for the Sharen had to make up excuses for grabbing commoners to enlist in either the penal colonies or the Sharen's armies. Even the Vloz'res clan, who admit they're the scum of Chel, have yet to be shown grabbing commoners off the streets and enslaving them. Carving a nether gate in their chest on the other hand...

Actually on-topic…

I would be part of the Sullisin'rune or the Kyorl'solenurn, maybe the Beldrobbaen or Jaal'darya.


Sullisin'rune - Because they are the major Empath clans, and empaths are the best. They also own aaaaaaall the ferals, mostly~

Kyorl'solenurn - Because of their clan structure. The Inquisitors are all empaths, and again, empaths are best~


Beldrobbaen - Because of shadow sorcery, and Waes is just the best Illharess!

Jaal'darya - Bio-engineering! Science! Both awesome.

I would have picked Jaal'Darya for the same reasons Lego XBOX says, except Femi highlighting the bad things that could happen when you've got scientists keeping their projects secret from even their clan leadership. That, and my affinity towards large, well organized armed forces and a leadership that tries to keep the welfare of the commoners in mind leads me to go Sarghress all the way (and Chibi-Quain kicking a hole in the wall of Haltonreibe...I want that book! ;) )

Vloz'ress all the way, all aboard the party turtle

Interesting how a clan which no longer exists is in second place.

Well, the poll has been around for a while now. The collapse of the Vloz is comparatively recent.

Short hair is not a mark of slavery.. As I recall, The very poor sell their hair to make some extra money. Kau'shala(one of Sillice's Sons) had short hair, so does Jiv'kyn, Shinae and Yaeminira, None of them are slaves, just not Val/Vel

I can't help but want to be a part of the Kyorl. I like the aesthetics of the clan, and how they stand apart from the rest of Chelian society. I like their history, how they saw all the other Drow'ussu being enslaved and came to the logical conclusion that they would have to band together in order to survive in a harsh and cruel underworld where power hungry demagogues and ruthless backstabbing sociopaths are a dime a dozen, and how their lath cousins would not hesitate to sell them all into slavery if the opportunity presented itself. I also acknowledge their more unsavory characteristics, but from what I've seen they're beginning to move past it under their new holy mother. Though they were right all along about most tainted being a threat to Drow society. They probably could have handled the situation better than they did, but hey, when your neighbors take up demon summoning as their new hobby, it pays off to be skeptical.
