Very little is known about the assassin who is called only “The Spider”. Accounts of The Spider seem to vary greatly on nearly every aspect of this individual’s identity. What can be confirmed is that he or she has been operating in the Ravenmarch for nearly fifty years with relative impunity. Rumors abound to the race, sex and even existence of this individual. What is known is that once The Spider is contracted to eliminate someone, that person is as good as dead. A popular rumor is that Mistress Ellianna knows The Spider and employs him to further her own schemes. A slightly less popular rumor is that Mistress Ellianna herself is actually The Spider. Regardless of the rumors very few people will deny that The Spider is a very real and very deadly person.
