Master Thief, Collector, and Owner of a reclusive shop in North Haven called “Antiquity.” It isn't a well-known shop. It is rather kept underground for several objects of interest reside there and some law enforcement may find them unfavorable. But Darwin likes to set up shop where the money is, and what is a more profitable haven than the greed that exists in the north?Race:
More In-depth KnowledgeFigure:
The Weaver, as mysterious as his name makes him seem, is a spider. From his lengthy claw-like toes to his head, he is 5’10” (70 in). From his toes to the tips of his tarsal claws, he is 7’0” (84 in). He weighs 95 lbs (45 kg) and his body is slender in build. His muscles are covered in silky smooth hairs, hairs that are brown in color and are known as urticating hairs for when raised act as a self-defense mechanism. He can shoot these hairs from his body, and like a plume of cacti thorns, they can blind and severely irritate the skin or mucous membranes of other species.
The Weaver has eight arms total and two legs. His longest arms sprout from his back and arch over his head like a pair of crochet needles, but they are as sharp as knives. They assist him in weaving intricate traps, cocoons, and other structures with his web. His second pair of arms branch from his cephalothorax like a humanoid. His fingers are black and clawed, his palms and digits segmented with a black hard chitinous shell. His third pair of arms are beneath the second and are similar in length. His fourth pair branch from his back and are only a few inches shorter than his first pair. They are sickle-like and assist him in weaving...or spearing his prey.
The Weaver has eight eyes and two of those sets are in the back of his head. He wears a black bandanna with holes cut into it for each of his eyes and beneath it is a mouth without lips. The teeth of his mouth are black and jagged and folded inside are two black chelicera. When The Weaver has his prey snagged within his clutches, when he is feeding, his jaws will part and his two chelicera will unfold, extending from his mouth to stab his prey with the hook-like fangs on the end. From those fangs, he will inject a deadly neurotoxin into the prey’s body, which will rapidly decompose it, reducing it into a sip-able sludge or drink. From this same mouth, he breathes his web, his spinnerets are located above his lungs and his silk escapes his throat on a breath. His hands and his tarsal claws are used to weave his webs.
The Weaver’s lightweight body is pretty sturdy but still delicate to harm. Beneath his hairs is a chitinous skin that allows him to resist scratches, scrapes, and bruises but not cracks.Persona:
Darwin is an interesting arachnid. He’s a thief and a merchant, but he isn’t a kleptomaniac nor is he greedy. He simply does what needs to be done to survive, and he does so the best way he knows how. He knows that he isn’t the hardiest creature out there but cleverest hm…he wouldn’t debate it. He is completely confident in his abilities until he’s used up all of his aces but that raaaarely
The Weaver is smooth when it comes to making a profitable trade. He has the ‘I’ll scratch your back if you’ll scratch mine,’ business ethic, and if a customer wants to go out of his or her way to make his life easier in order to get an item off of him, he wouldn’t complain or refuse the offer. The spider is rather reclusive for he doesn’t like big crowds or too many people browsing about his shop. All that would lead to is other thieves stealing from him, him hunting those thieves down, and then overfilling his food storage cavern. What a pain.
He has a dark sense of humor. If one ate other creatures and cannibalized on one’s own race, then one would understand. He’s malicious when it comes to hunting or even killing his prey. His reasons are that he tries to avoid building a relationship with potential food. Food is food—fat ones are definitely food. He just loves fat people. They’re slow, big and juicy and easy to catch. They always make such an exciting subject for conversation, especially when he misses a meal.
Darwin has a big appetite but he really doesn’t eat much because he liquefies his food. He consumes a liquid protein diet, and one fat creature can last him for an entire week before he would need to find another chubby lumpkins.
First impression, the spider is creepy as he would be. He is a spider after all. He is far from cute and cuddly. It doesn’t help that he likes to hide somewhere in his shop and give off the effect that he’s just some omnipotent being whose voice carries around the cave. Really, he would probably be relaxing in a cocoon hammock and come out once he had a customer worth his time. Once a person is in the spider’s proximity and domain, you won’t believe how many tripwires they’ve triggered to alert him of their presence. Any enemy would be in danger to be anywhere near him if they came to cause him harm. Darwin is booby-trap central!
Any who, the spider is actually quite friendly in an interesting way. While his personality may not always win his customers, those who are friends with him will benefit from his services. Just as smooth as his business practice is, the arachnid is just as smooth when he talks. His voice has a wispy air to it and a slight depth that comes from his chest. He likes when his customers offer him a good deal and he doesn’t mind an excursion partner. He does like to go exploring for gadgets and gizmos of plenty and thing-a-bobs galo~ore! Strengths:Urticating Hair
: The Weaver’s hair are urticating. They can severely irritate the skin and mucous membranes of other anthropomorphs when released. There are millions of hair follicles that cover his body with the same irritating properties as a cactus.Neurotoxin
: The Weaver's neurotoxin is deadly but can be used for medicinal properties (if he allows such). The neurotoxin has multiple side effects in low doses if one were to escape him before liquefaction: loss of muscle control, respiratory distress (asphyxiation), paralysis, severe inflammation of the bitten area and priapism for several hours. Erectile dysfunction is one of the medicinal properties his venom can be used to treat as well as temporary erectile augmentation, which is his best-selling tonic.Web
: The Weaver’s web is the toughest biological material and is ten-times tougher than Kevlar. Like the Darwin Bark Spider from which he gets his name, his webs can span out several feet, and it is unknown what the maximum length it can be. He can produce multiple strand-widths from white visible thread-like strands to thin barely visible fishing lines. His web production requires lots and lots of energy and protein, and so he will always have a meal before he attempts to weave anything. The Weaver doesn't knit clothing from his web, despite how tempting it would be to do so. If the North Haven military found out about his web strength, then they would want to either destroy him so that potential criminals couldn't use it or exploit him and his business.Strength
: The Weaver has the strength of a jumping spider amplified to humanoid proportions. Because he is slender and weak in appearance, and a "bug" or "insect" to some, it is easy for another predator to underestimate him. The grip of a jumping spider can hold 170 times the spider's own body weight (16, 150 lbs - 8 tons (for Darwin's body weight)) before a weight exceeding that calculation would cause him to detach from a wall or release an enemy. Jumping spiders have an internal hydraulic system that alters body fluid pressure to extend their legs, causing them to make jumps 50 times the length of their bodies (75 meters in Darwin's case).Wall Climber
: The Weaver has various hairs on his body. Out of the mixture of hairs are hairs called setae
, which give Darwin the ability to defy gravity by standing horizontally on a wall or even hanging upside down from flat ceilings or surfaces. His strength allows him to hold his weight plus 170 times his weight before he would be ripped free of the ceiling by gravity (and of course the weight). Van der Waal forces, caused by moving electrons, create hot spots of attraction between nearby molecules. With these minuscule charges acting on the 600,000-plus setules in each furry seta, he can hang upside down or from a wall with ease.Kiting
: By releasing his web into the air in the form of a chute or kite, Darwin can catch a good draft that can carry him up, up, and away!Perfect Eyesight
: No; he doesn't have enhanced vision to see great distances. No; his eight eyes have the average eyesight of a Jumping spider with perfect clarity. The one thing The Weaver lacks is blind spots. This man has eyes in the back of his head, literally!Master Acrobat
: When you’re almost as light as a feather (exaggeration), getting around is too easy. He moves up and down buildings, across great gaps, and can even fly through the air only with the use of his webs. He is highly flexible, capable of sliding through even the narrowest of crannies. He is interesting to watch move.Gifted Thief
: This might be just his ego, but he feels that there isn't a thing out there that he can't steal.Brilliant Strategist and Trapper
: This is The Weaver’s primary method of defense. His mind. He sets traps. Traps his prey don't even know about for they are barely seen and once they’re caught, they better pray they can escape his web and not entangle themselves more. His traps play into his ability to not only catch food for himself but to steal.Shrewd Businessman
: The Weaver does not play. He is hard to haggle with and can be quite stubborn when it comes to trade. He believes that he goes through much hardship and anguish finding the items he does, and then resupplying? Ugh. You better have something extremely valuable to win his business.Intimidating
: This is actually a strength and a weakness. Most people of the Old World were terrified of spiders and have arachnophobia. While this can give him the upper hand in a situation, it can also put him at risk for usually when people are frightened of bugs they like to smash
: Darwin is a brittle creature and naturally, his body makes up for it by being one of the most deadly creatures on earth. He will keep his enemies at a distance for if an enemy got a hold of him, he could be easily and severely injured or killed.Hyper Metabolism
: Due to his body constantly needing nourishment every time he uses his thread, Darwin likes to eat regularly and so he stocks up on many a meal. His store has several cocoons hidden in the back like food storage. Some of those victims are still alive for he likes to have a fresh meal and he will liquefy them when he's ready to eat.Big & Juicy
: Darwin likes it when his prey is big and juicy. If you want to cut a good deal with him, then bring him a captive. If you don't want to feel too much guilt, then bring him a criminal. Just make sure it's big and juicy. He likes the fat ones especially for he can store them for long periods. He just can't resist!Coward
: When shit hits the fan or the enemy proves overwhelming, Darwin would be the first to curl up and flee. He would reason why deal with a situation that he doesn't have to deal with? He is courageous for as long as he knows he has the upper hand, but when it all blows back in his face, the spider can be a crybaby.Cold, Icy Temperatures
: The Weaver prefers the heat and so is rarely seen during the winter temperatures. His shop will be heavily webbed for insulation because he cannot stand the cold and ice!Bio:
The Weaver to those who have never heard of him is a bedtime story and legend told to cubs of the East Haven tribes and a superstition whispered in West Haven. The Weaver is the devourer of bad children when they don’t do as they’re told and the consequence of bad karma for gangers. People disappear, and it isn’t always at night. In their place will be strands of web, the sign that The Weaver had visited. The more primitive tribes tend to leave offerings for The Weaver on small shrines, and in return, they will see their offerings traded for an interesting gift.
The Weaver is Darwin Spinner, one of the few Arachnae found outside of South Haven. He was born with an intelligence unlike the other spiderlings in his mother’s nest. His intelligence was what had him leaving her care early, while the others remained. Some to be eaten to satiate her hunger and others to roam the southside ignorantly as victims to merciless predators. Fuck that life!
Darwin became an explorer. He always liked collecting interesting antiques of the Old World and gradually as his collection grew, he realized that most of the stuff wouldn’t benefit him if he just kept it. Thus, the spider opened his underground shop in North Haven, Antiquity
. He’s had the shop for years and will move it if its location becomes compromised. He has been able to steer clear of law enforcement for several years. It’s not so hard to do when the store is hidden in the most awkward of places, but every now and then, a customer will stumble across it.
He hunts for relics and food all over the havens,
collecting from others including his victims. He took the name the tribes had given him and made it his alias. Because he’s such a recluse, “The Weaver” is all most know of his name. He doesn’t try to draw attention to himself for the least people know about his shop, the better. The customers who actually find his shop are usually the ones worth his time, which is exactly how he likes it.
The Antiquity shop gets customers of all sorts. Sometimes it will be a gang member either seeking information or The Weaver’s enlargement tonic. Darwin has a special policy when it comes to disclosing information about what he learns, hears and knows about specific someones
. He will never give the person’s name, but if he knows something, he will always be indirect with his answer. He will refer to the person as “someone” or “someones.” And he will refer to a location as “some place.” He will refer to an object as “something.” The customer will be left to figure the rest out based on the remaining information he offers. The reason why he does this is so that he can’t ever be accused of anything. By doing this, he never says who, what, and where, and so law enforcement ain’t got shit on him! But the store’s usual purpose is to deal in antiques. What people do with the relics is up to them. As long as they give him something valuable in return, then he does not have a problem.
His business has been running peacefully for a long
time and Darwin is confident that it will continue to do so for as long as he remains neutral and elusive.

You do not want this guy as an enemy. Just saying.Mating
: The mating rituals of the Arachnae are rather...weird...and psychotic at times. Mostly because the female insists on trying to eat the male afterwards, which tends to have most males fuck and run. Originally, male spiders of the Old World (the normal kind) didn't have penises. They instead inserted their semen indirectly using limbs called pedipalps
. They would basically create bags of semen with their webs and insert them directly into the female spider's vagina. BUT! Having evolved into a humanoid species, the pedipalps have become penises, yes penises
. They have two of them and that's not the best part. Just wait for it.
When a male Arachnae of Darwin's species is horny or ready to mate, his body begins to vibrate, producing vibrations that the intended mate will be able to feel stimulating his or her senses. The vibrations mesmerize the intended mate long enough for the male to make a move. Female Arachnae always had to be mesmerized or duped in some form for a male to be able to successfully penetrate her without being captured, bitten, and eaten afterwards. The vibrations often left the female docile long enough for the male to do his thing. Some females were strong and required being bound with webbing, thus Darwin's fetish for bondage.
Now here's the kicker. Darwin's species orgasm long before the partner does. His semen will fill his pedipalps, simulating an engorged penis and once he has intercourse with the female, he will detach his pedipalp (yes, his penis!) and leave it inside her to continue to ravage her. Seeing as he has two penises, he can break one off in her vagina and her anus if he wanted to, leaving her to be ravaged long after the intercourse is complete. Originally, the spiders of the Old World did this so that other male spiders would not be able to mate with the female. At least not until their pedipalps fell out. It was to ensure that their offspring would pass on and not the others. Darwin, overtime, will regenerate his pedipalps to mate again another time if he so wished. Isn't spider sex interesting?
