The joroguro is a terrifying foe that works in concert with the rokuro-kubi to lure prey into their brothel and then devour them whole in a literal web of lies. The joroguro generally appears as a seductive hot springs geisha or as a humble elderly farm man in need of assistance. Generally The joroguro plays a game where he wants to have "children" from the strong adventures and invites them to his house with the rokuro-kubi as his lovely daughter, he then exits to his bedroom and reappears as another lovely daughter. What people do not understand is that they have fallen into a deadly trap and will be drained of blood and then devoured flesh and bone which feeds both monsters.
The joroguro can also act as a spy for warbands of bakemono and yokai and they go forth with the rokuro-kubi to assassinate important leaders like sergeants and even generals. Where the rokuro-kubi is a powerful brute with a snake maw in its tender nether regions the joroguro is a humanoid spider similar in appearance to a drider that has more mastery over magic and traps made from its own webs.
