Iggwilv is characterized as a selfish, evil-aligned magic user with much power and a penchant for sexual manipulation. She is the creator of the fictional demonomicons , which later served as inspiration for a real life sourcebook of the same name. For a period of time, she travelled with the Company of Seven under the alias Tasha. Gygax has cited the Finnish epic Kalevala as inspiration for Iggwilv.

Its name comes from its author; Iggwilv , the legendary witch who first appeared in the Greyhawk setting. The titular Grimoires are a set of six books written by Iggwilv containing her observations, understandings and strategems developed over centuries of studying the Abyss and the demons that dwell therein. These books abound in abyssal and demonic lore, outline practical methodology when it comes to demon summoning, detail various spells Iggwilv invented to augment her skills as a conjurer, and usually contain the Truenames of various demons. The specific contents of each grimoire vary, mostly in terms of what Truenames are present.
