Jorogumo

Anusi or Sprites

Jorogumo is the uhali name for the tiny arachnoid sophonts that inhabit tropical forests across the planet, in some cases constructing expansive miniature-scale cities. Jorogumo have domesticated several other species of spider, for reasons as varied as the species– banana spiders for silk and food, tarantulas for terrestrial mounts and leg-hair weapons, etc.

Basic Information

Anatomy

Jorogumo are members of the Salticidae family of spiders, and in almost all respects are indistinguishable from other members of the Portia genus. However, they have forelimbs that are considerably more adapted to grasping things.

Additional Information

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Jorogumo can be found in tropical forests worldwide.

Civilization and Culture

Major Language Groups and Dialects

Like other invertebrate sophonts, jorogumo do not have the capability to vocalize and thus do not have a verbal language. Jorogumese, as their various languages are often generalized to, is entirely based on gestures and symbols.

Interspecies Relations and Assumptions

The relationship between jorogumo and faeries is complex and regionally dependent. In some subchains of Thalassaterria, fae and sprites are mortal enemies, whereas in other places the two species cooperate to build intricate minature-scale metropoli deep in the jungles.
