Greek Craft Goddess

Spider Goddess of Web Sleaziness

Never challenge the Gods to a contest. You may be the finest weaver in Athens, but to take on ATHENA and then weave a tapestry in amazing detail of the Gods doing scandalous things will get you stitched up.

ARACHNE is now a spider and the only weaving she can do now is with sticky threads from her own body. She appears to have permeated the internet on a massive scale.
