Spider Goddess who beta-tested the first humans

She helped Sotuknang create the world and then made all living things to populate it.

She had lots of trouble with her mankind prototypes malfunctioning and misbehaving. After many attempts, she finally released Human Race 1.4 Mk V, revision 12a. That’s us.

She may also be the Spider Woman who helped Nayenezgani and Tobadzistsini. Anything is possible.
