Arachne is an Akamibojin, she appears as female human from the waist up and a large spider -like creature from the waist down.
She has black hair with red streaks, black eyes, and a majority of her body is covered with a red and black carapace.
Akamibojin are 2nd level Nightmaren, which are more commonly called Red Widows or Spider Queens. They were created by Wizeman to infiltrate Nightopian and Visitor societies, and were placed under command the command of Queen Bella, who was so taken with the species she made a request to raise an Akamibojin from infancy. Wizeman agreed to her request, and Arachne was born.
Arachne served as Queen Bellas’ lieutenant until her “mother” learned that a rival intended to assassinate Arachne. Unwilling to lose her, Queen Bella faked Arachnes’ death and banished her to the colonies, where she was told to observe and report resistance activity.
By coincidence she settled down in Aurican and Rosalynn’s home town and joined the militia.
Since then she has discovered several young members of the resistance, including Aurican, Rosalynn and Clawdius, initially clashing with them on a constant basis until a plan to capture them backfired and her allies left her for dead.
She was nursed back to health and imprisoned by the resistance but eventually escaped when the colony was attacked by a Mornuskad Coven.
As happenstance would have it, she ended up aiding the Resistance in defeating the Coven, and she was allowed to leave.
Upon returning to Nightmare, Arachne was shocked to learn that she had been replaced by another “daughter” and upon confronting her mother soon learnt that Wizeman had erased her from Queen Bellas’ memories and she was forced to flee only to be captured and tried as a deserter.
Fated to be thrown to an Erthaxle she was rescued by a group of resistance members who had infiltrated Nightmare castle with the intention of liberating as many prisoners as they could.
For the second time Arachne fought along side the resistance, and with her assistance the intruders where able to not only complete their mission but gather a treasure trove of information regarding Nightmaren and Somnambulist troop deployments and bases.
As a member of the resistance Arachne serves as spy, taking mission that send her across the Dream Dimension and into the Waking World.
