Iggwilv has never yet appeared in any game I've either played in or run, but she's a character I've always wanted to get into a campaign. Possibly because she's bound up with so many bits of myth, partly because she just looks so much fun. Evil, to be sure, but intelligent and never completely out of the game.
|Iggwilv - by James Ryman. An iconic image. I've never been entirely convinced by the green lipstick, but this isn't someone you're likely to argue with.|

|Iggwilv's cosy childhood home|
Later in her career, Iggwilv developed an interest in demons and the Abyss and typically did the thing thoroughly. Attempting to capture the Demon Lord Graz'zt, the pair fell conveniently in love. It is not to be expected that two such beings would settle to a life of quiet domesticity, and so it has proved. Variously betraying and double crossing each other, they have parted, but seem to retain some fondness and respect for each other.

Iggwilv can now be found behind many Abyssal plots. It is unknown how many of them involve her ex love or her adopted mother, but some connection seems likely.
In my head, I see her living in comfortable luxury, writing new appendices of her mighty work, the Demonomicon. Always to hand will be her notepad, her chessboard and her faithful messenger ravens as she berates publishers, hunts for fresh worlds to conquer and looks for opportunity.
One day we'll meet in a game somewhere.
