Arachne was a great mortal weaver who boasted that her skill was greater than that of Athena, goddess of wisdom, weaving, and strategy. Arachne refused to acknowledge that her knowledge came, in part at least, from the goddess. Offended by Arachne's arrogance, Athena set a contest between the two weavers. The goddess was so envious of the magnificent tapestry and the mortal weaver's success, and perhaps offended by the girl's choice of subjects (the loves and transgressions of the gods), that she destroyed the tapestry and loom and slashed the girl's face. “Not even Pallas nor blue-fevered Envy Could damn Arachne's work. The goddess raged at the girl's success, struck through her loom, tore down the scenes of wayward joys in heaven.″ Ultimately, the goddess turned Arachne into a spider. Arachne simply means "spider" in Greek. In another version of the myth, Arachne lost the weaving contest. She then hanged herself out of embarrassment. Later on, Athena finds Arachne's body and takes pity on her, before resurrecting her as a spider. Both these legends explain why spiders can weave webs.
Like a black widow the size of a Volkswagon beetle, just larger and much scarier. She has spikes on her eight legs, and her abdomen is the largest part of her body. Her whole body, minus her arms is covered in a hard, black exoskeleton, just like a spider. She has mandible-like jaws that are covered in exoskeleton.
This beast takes 3 to 5 demigods to kill.
Arachne can walk, run and scale walls, walk and run on the ceiling. She can spin webs, and use her webbing for rope, as a whip, or like a normal spider. Arachne can shoot webbing at prey, and she can use her horrid mandible-like jaw to grind, crush, and eat flesh. Her legs also have spikes on them, which Arachne can use to cut, scratch or shred prey. Her the spider portion of her body is encased in hard exoskeleton, and only her arms and brain are still human.
Arachne will attempt to cover an area in sticky webbing, so that prey will be caught in the webbing. Merely stepping on the webbing, or throwing something on it is enough to alert the beast that something new is touching her web. Arachne will attempt to spear things with her sharply pointed legs, as well as trying to cut or shred things with the spikes on her front legs. She will try to grab things with her human hands and bring them to her mouth to grind them. She will user her hands to move things, swing from things if necessary as well. She will shoot webbing at prey to trap it, the webbing will be extremely sticky and traveling at an extremely high velocity so that when the prey is hit, it will launch the prey into a wall.
