Hollow Shaytan Spider

Ah yes, the Hollow Shaytan Spider. A most dangerous beast, found in the depths of caves and ravines, exclusively living in packs. One tribe normally consists of one Queen Spider, a two to eight Guard Spiders and one hundred to around 2000 Worker Spiders.

Basic Information


The Queen

While a Hollow Shaytan Spider Queen is by far not the biggest of the different crawlers, she is the most humanoid looking. Standing at an average 210cm, this creature posesses a shell that, at its weakest, even a Gold level adventurer will have a hard time dealing with. This spider has legs coming out her backside and horns of various sizes are located over her ears.

The Guards

The Guards of a Shaytan Spider tribe vary in their humanoid looks. Depending on their Rank, the guards not only gain more strength and venomous attacks, they also gain additional physical features, such as horns, legs, plates as natural armor and better senses.

The Workers

The Worker Spiders almost exclusively look animalistic. Their physique can slightly change to attain weaker versions of the guards skin plates and hardened skin.

Ecology and Habitats

A Hollow Shaytan Spider clan is only seen in caves wrapped in darkness. Deep down in the void of a cold ravine, the royal couple feels most alive.

Additional Information

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Hollow Shaytan Spiders are all blind creatures. Living underground their whole lives, they specialize in detecting vibrations, sounds, touch and the flow of Magicules to navigate the caves they call their home. While the workers commonly dont have great magic senses, they excel in touch and vibration sensory. The Queen and King on the other hand mastered their senses to the maximum, making an encounter feel like fighting against a fortune telling warlock.

*horrified face* That's way too many gigantic spiders! What's their intelligence level?

To see what I am up to, here is my civilisation challenge article.

I love my horrifying creatures :D. Well the spiders are moderately intelligent. They don't charge in head first towards a horde of adventurers, but they will sense when someone is invading their territory and attack.

From strange languages to unnecessarily elaborate playing card designs, Cathrea is the place to find it.
