A female pangoloid woman with the mask of a spider, and a veil made of webs covering her face completely and acting as hair. She wears a long straight white dress used for funerals. She is sometimes depicted as having 6 arms and said to be 'in an eternal mad dance driven by forces unspeakable'. She is very thin and starved, and those that see her true eyes directly are said to go insane.
Her animal form is a large white spider with 9 scorpion tails, each hooked with a sharp sickle.
The Mad Goddess as they call her, unpredictable, violent, and wild. She is rarely worshiped because of this except by the mad, foolish seekers of knowledge, and those wishing for destruction. She wishes nothing more for things to be torn to anarchy and disorder, as society and creation is to blame for all the troubles of life. Only through the peace of death can it end, and it's your job to help everyone die.
Clergy and Temples
Very rare, the cults collect in places without order, and places where they can wreck the most damage. Whenever injured they sink back into the shadows until they can make their next move. However, not all madmen worship her, for she is a gateway to forbidden knowledge. Thus, the greedy or curious wizard often dabbles in her darkness to try and discover for themselves things which should not be.
