Does anyone know offhand how tall Drizzt and Catti-brie are?

Are they about the same height?   Or since drow are generally shorter than humans would Catti-brie be taller than him?
Kind of a trivial detail but I'm working on picture so if anybody knows for sure it'd really help me out.

Nyte, My Dear,

Drizzt and Cat are both 5'4". Sources are pretty consistent about that.

You can fudge that a little if either one of them is having a bad hair day, though!

Ah Thank you Beast! I had a feeling you'd know. I should really have your number in case of trivia emergencies!

¡De nada, Señorita!

1-800-ASK-BEAS ext. 8 (for "T")

or

1-800-IMBEAST.

Wouldn't that be cool?

Well, he is a dark elf! They tend to be shorter than humans.

But he's actually slightly tall for a male drow. It must be those tall genes from his father, Zak.
How tall is Artemis?
Streams of Silver said that Artemis was barely as tall as Cat, and the lorebook Hall of Heroes stats him as exactly the same height as her (and Drizzt): 5'4".

The FR Campaign Setting (3E) statted him up at 5'5".

He has always been described as a "small man". And he appears to mirror Drizzt in size and movement.

This completely ruined the mental image i had of Drizzt, i always pictured him as a regular elf height, which made a the sparring between Drizzt and Wulfgar more believable, i just cant picture now a 5'4 Drizzt fighting a 7' tall Wulfgar, it seems almost comical now :(

Oh well in my mind he will always be taller and Artemis as well XD
